Patch 7.2 Ptr

Blizzard details 7.2 Legendary item changes We’ve known for a long time that Blizzard intends to balance WoW’s Legendary items so players never feel disappointed when they get a Legendary drop. This means powerful Legendaries are getting nerfed while their less exciting brethren are buffed. The latest list of changes on the PTR may still not be final, but you’ll want...

Developers weigh in on Nighthold tank balance Tank balance has come to the fore in the Nighthold raid. World of Warcraft designer Sigma acknowledged as much in a post on the Official Forums. The damage profile he is referring to is the large amount of constant magic damage.




Patch 7.2 PTR removes secondary traits from Relics The patch 7.2 PTR introduced two new tiers of Order Hall research. The final tier, costing 30,000 Order Hall Resources, allowed Relics to add ranks to two different Artifact traits. After testing and player feedback, the developers have decided to shelve the idea.

Patch 7.2: Sets tab coming to transmog UI with related achievements In a new blog, the World of Warcraft team discussed some changes to the transmogrification system coming in patch 7.2. Each past raid tier and PVP set will now be displayed in a new Sets tab in the transmog UI. In the past, you’d have to assemble and save these sets on your own, but...

Flying and Mythic+ changes live on WoW patch 7.2 PTR The patch 7.2 PTR just went offline for a new build, and when it returns it will feature flying, class mount quests, changes to Mythic+ affixes and rewards, and the Cathedral of Endless Night dungeon. We knew most of this was coming, but the Mythic changes are a surprise — and, at least to me,...

Patch 7.2 PTR brings back Maximillian of Northshire and more WoW’s latest patch 7.2 PTR build is here, and while it doesn’t offer as much new content as last week’s build — which added the entire Broken Shore — there are some definite points of interest. Opinions will certainly vary, I think the highlight may be Maximillian of Northshire who will join Paladins on the Broken...




Patch 7.2 PTR: First look at the updated Broken Shore When the patch 7.2 PTR came up yesterday, we knew the Broken Shore came with it — and today we have our first look at the Broken Shore assault courtesy of Wowhead. (And if you’d rather see a text-based rundown, check Wowhead instead of watching the video.) Be warned, the video below contains spoilers for...

Ashbringer Artifact
New patch 7.2 PTR build brings new Artifact Traits, Broken Shore content The patch 7.2 PTR is about to get a new build, and it’s a doozy. Up until now the PTR has been focused on testing the Legion Assaults and feature changes, but now we’re looking at the quest chains to unlock the new Artifact Traits coming in patch 7.2. There are a total of seven...



Soon you’ll be able to get Legion flying with Broken Isles Pathfinder achievements Remember the flying controversy around Warlords of Draenor? When Blizzard said, before release, that we’d be able to fly in Draenor after launch (possibly as late as patch 6.1)? And then they said we wouldn’t? And then they turned around and said we would again? With Legion, Blizzard’s trying to avoid making the same mistake twice...

Patch 7.2: First look at pet battle dungeons Way back at BlizzCon, during the World of Warcraft Q&A hosted by Wowhead’s Panser, a question about the future of pet battles was asked. The answer was a pithy yet cryptic “pet battle dungeons.” When the patch 7.2 PTR hit, the blanks were filled in quite suddenly, as the first pet battle dungeon is available...

Patch 7.2: Southshore vs Tarren Mill returns and other new details As our friends at Wowhead noted, Patch 7.2 isn’t just all about the Burning Legion with the introduction of the Broken Shore, new World Quests, and the Legionfall faction to work on. If you’re into PVP, you’re going to get to return to Tarren Mill and Southshore for the PvP Brawl, a deathmatch style PvP...

Patch 7.2 PTR: Legion Assaults One of the new features in Patch 7.2 is the Legion Assault, a retooled version of the pre-expansion Demon Invasions. These events target a specific zone in the Broken Isles and replace the normal World Quests with more difficult, and also more rewarding, challenges for you to complete. I’ve managed to do most of Stormheim...

Will you check out the 7.2 PTR? I’ve been on the PTR for patch 7.2 a bit this weekend, testing out things like the tweaks to the transmog system and the Demon Invasion systems. The transmog changes are still a bit wonky, some sets aren’t there at all and it didn’t import any of my transmog gear that I didn’t still have in...

What do you think of Patch 7.2 so far? Blizzard has started putting patch 7.2 on the PTR, testing out various features of the new patch like the Demon Assaults, the Pet Battle Dungeon, and best of all an update to tab targeting that will hopefully make it so when I hit tab I don’t target something that’s thirty yards away from me while...

WoW patch 7.2 PTR patch notes The patch notes for patch 7.1.5 were a bit last minute. We didn’t have official patch notes for the latest iteration of the game until right at patch day — and even then, they were incomplete, leading to confusion over what Blizzard was really trying to do. Was this new game behavior a bug or simply...

Patch 7.2 PTR: New mounts, including class mounts, and other new models The folks at Wowhead have been datamining into the night and they’ve come out of said mines with a plethora of new models for mounts, including the BlizzCon 2016 surprise class mounts. We talked about them at the time, but now you can actually get a sense of them as they’ll appear in patch 7.2....
