Patch 6.2: Tier 18 set bonus changes for all classes

Changes are on the way for Tier 18 set bonuses in patch 6.2, according to a post made by Ion “Watcher” Hazzikostas on the official forums. All classes have had changes made, although not every spec has been affected in most cases — Warriors are the only class that have had adjustments made to every specialization’s tier set bonuses. If you are planning on raiding Hellfire Citadel in the upcoming patch, you may want to take a look at the changes and see if they affect your particular class and spec.
