MMO-Champion - Patch 4.0.1 - PTR Build 13131
Patch 4.0.1 - PTR Build 13131
The test realms have been updated with a new PTR build, this build is tagged as (Release) and seems to be a release candidate for live servers, it's a very small patch with only a few changes to spell data. You can still expect the patch on October 5th or 12th as far as I'm concerned.


Achievements Changes
A couple of beta achievements have been updated and some of the "old" achievements have been reverted to fit the 4.0.1 environment (you have to kill Thrall in Orgrimmar instead of Garrosh, etc ...). Blizzard is definitely polishing for live release.

Spell Changes
This is a 4.0.1 build and beta is 4.0.3, I strongly suggest that you do not consider these changes as upcoming beta changes, they might be 4.0.1 only. (A couple of changes from the latest beta build have been reverted)

    Awesome! Love the change to PW:B, it was odd using at .5 second cast time (lol had it interrupted once... it sucked... with 25% haste even)

    Good holy paladin buffs.

    Are you sure there are no Ret Paladin changes, Boub? Most Rets are reporting a significant (2k+) DPS increase this patch.

    Maybe it was just bug fixes, who knows.

    What about Warrior changes :? I read their DPS is currently close to none, people deny them Heroic Dungeon and Raid spots.

    That's from the Exorcism and Two Hand Spec changes in the last build.

    Yeah well I really hope they are not going to make EU wait a week longer...

    I have to ask, where are the racial changes?
    I'm pretty sure they promised us that all races would get revamped racials...
    Or am I wrong?

    It's just base damage though, so it's only going to hit around 500 damage harder.

    Spriests on beta were complaining about low DPS. Looks like you're winning on the fact that Blizzard listens to QQ!

    If the ETA is 5th October, then the PTR will go down tonight or tomorrow.

    October 5th is 2 days, seems unlikely that they would deploy the release candidate to PTR only 2 days before the actual release. Too little time for testing and validation. 12th is more likely, so I'm going with that. :P

    Also, I really hope it's later than sooner. XD I don't want my classes (mainly Paladin) to change, so I'd have to learn them all over again. :'( I really like my Paladin right now lol.

    The priest class changes seem to always be all buffs or all nerfs. Nice to see that the "release" patch is all buffs, and some pretty hearty ones! Instant PW:B seems to fit very well, as does the lowered cooldown on Prayer of Healing (easier to maintain its Chakra state). Atonement is a tiny tweak but its going to put it at just the right place. Shadowy Apparition is a little strange. People were noticing it already had pretty high DPS, so this is an unexpected change. I haven't done much testing as a shadow priest on the PTR, so that may have mostly been from multi-dotting Target Dummies.
