Class Changes

Patch 7.2.5 notes are here with details on class changes It’s been one day since we were treated to an overview of the developers’ notes for Patch 7.2.5, but one day is apparently all it takes to go from big-picture notes to full-on patch notes. Arriving via the battle.net Blizzard App, the 7.2.5 PTR notes detail a lot of the class changes that were teased yesterday. The list...

Patch 7.2: The Tomb of Sargeras patch notes released The official patch notes for patch 7.2, The Tomb of Sargeras, have now been released. In the latest monstrous patch we’ll return to the Broken Shore to fight the Burning Legion — but there’s plenty more than just that to explore. Unlock flying, check out The Cathedral of Eternal Night, jump into all new class...




Are you ready for Patch 7.1.5? Ready or not, by the time you read this (if you’re on North American realms anyway) the patch will soon be deploying on servers. Patch 7.1.5 has a lot of class adjustments, Timewalking Mists of Pandaria dungeons, a whole rework to the Brawler’s Guild, the advent of the Micro-Holidays and more. There will be changes to...

Encrypted Text: Patch 7.0.3 Rogue crash course Salutations, sneakthieves, spies and scalawags. Welcome to your new Rogue. After months of previews, predictions and analyses, it’s finally time for all of us try out the Legion Rogue for ourselves. Or, at least, the part of the Legion Rogue that doesn’t involve artifacts, PVP talents, or class halls. Even without those components, though, there’s...

Encrypted Text: Previewing the Legion Assassination Rogue The assassins are back. The Rogue Assassination spec took its time joining Outlaw and Subtlety in our upcoming war against the Burning Legion, clearly awaiting the opportune moment to strike at the heart of an overconfident enemy. That, or the designers decided the spec didn’t need as much testing time because it didn’t require as...

Locked and Loaded: Why I’ll probably play Beast Mastery in Legion I still question whether the rework of Beast Mastery was even needed. I’m a big believer in the if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it philosophy and I’m pretty sure Beast Mastery is not broken on live servers. One could argue Survival was in a rough spot and warranted a big re-do, but I thought...




Encrypted Text: First glimpse of the (revised) Subtlety Rogue in Legion You know the old saying: If at first Subtlety doesn’t succeed, try, try again. After releasing the first playable version of the Subtlety Rogue into the untamed waters of the Legion alpha on January 27, WoW‘s design team was buffeted with gale-force winds of player opposition. Turning into the storm, they unfurled a partly redesigned...

Breakfast Topic: Are you excited for the Legion class changes so far? The changes are in — Blizzard has officially released Legion previews for every class and spec. Keeping in mind that we don’t actually have all the details yet (these are still just previews), are you excited for what Legion brings for your characters?



Locked and Loaded: The Survival Hunter fantasy – What is it? I was recently perusing the old Hunter talent trees and was pretty taken aback by how much flavor the specs have lost over the years. Don’t get me wrong, I prefer the modern talent system, but there was something cool about being able to spec yourself as a true Survival Hunter if desired. Talents that...

Shadow Word: Shadow Priest history heading into Legion Ladies and gentleman, please join us tonight as we witness the harrowing tale of Shadow Priests throughout the years. It is a tale of rejection, (blood)lust, loss, gain, more loss, and so much more! Now please, take your seats. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the show!

Skeleton's got 99 problems, but Demon Hunters ain't one.
Encrypted Text: How will Demon Hunters — and Legion — change the Rogue class? Suddenly, one day, a new melee DPS class sauntered into WoWville. And lo, the Rogue class was most displeased. The new class’s loot table overlapped with Rogues’. Elements of the new class’s gameplay felt too strong. There was widespread concern that players would flock from Rogues to the new class, leaving the Rogue population a...
