Patch 4.2 on PTRs - Build 14002
Patch 4.2 is upon us! See the list of changes below.

Important - As usual with datamined changes, be very careful. Especially on a first build of a PTR where most of our internal tools explode because of changes to the game files.

    More fishing and cooking dailies? Yay, and hopefully one of the firehawks is for the daily zone and the mount reward they talked about.

    The text is green so that means it is not official...yet. Official changes are always in blue.

    Why Blizzard insists that acquiring aggro should be fun is beyond me. It's not. Maintaining aggro should be the goal, not acquiring. I don't want to make the raid suffer so much more when I tank adds on Maloriak just because Icy Touch doesn't outthreat healers, they're immune to death grip and, next patch, rune strike won't even help me build some solid short term threat to at LEAST get it away from near the boss before I can work on it. Not to mention the amount of damage I take extra for the class that I am and the stuns I have not. x.x And what's worse, once you finally have them in place you can snooze off again because you don't need to work for your threat after that, just for your survival by hitting death strike or however your class works.

    It's just.. Yeah. It's like they're completely lost with their threat thing. It's become one huge experiment that changes every patch. For every class. I'd like to be tank as main, but at the same time I'm really glad I'm not with how clunky it feels now with this whole "threat at start is a bitch, threat later on in the fight is /afkfest".
