MMO-Champion - Patch 4.2 - PTR Build 14179
Update 02:30AM CEST - Uploaded a very short video of the Celestial Dragon on youtube - Celestial Dragon Video

Update 02:00AM CEST - Added Patch 4.2 - PTR Build 14179 Items to a dedicated thread. Among other things, the Flametalon of Alysrazor is a likely candidate for the Raven Fire God Mount datamined earlier.


Update 01:30AM CEST - Assuming Blizzard didn't change the model, the Celestial Dragon rewarded by Littlest Pet Shop is most likely the one datamined in March 2010.

A new build is being deployed on test realms!

  • Ferocious Bite no longer heals you.

Arcane
  • Spellsteal no longer has a cooldown. Now costs 40% of base mana, up from 20%.

Frost

Paladin (Forums / Talent Calculator / Skills/Talents)

  • Divine Flame now heals for 10% of the value, down from 20%. Now also affects Flash of Light and Holy Light.

    Hahahahaha hungering cold change.
    I can only wait in anticipation for the flood of tears, where's my tear jug?

    (I actually play frost as OS for my DK tank lol)
    (Also, what are the likely chances of it happening? )

    oh look, ring of frost is buffed again, and spellsteal is back off cd. Glad to see that mages are getting balanced. Surprised that there arent any more boomkin nerfs though. :P Whats with the hungering cold cast time though?

    probably a tooltip bug. though i could see it being more to prevent frost dk's from freezing a room full of people with a flag(for example) on hand without having to stop.

    'Hungering Cold has a 1.5 second cast time up from instant.

    Ring of Frost is once again instant cast down from 1.5 second cast.'

    What the fuck....

    Anyone find it odd that the already overpowered Ring of Frost gets reverted to Instant, while Frost DK's only CC gets nerfed due entirely to PVP?

    It is like they have two devs changing shit in some kind of a war. "Fuck mages" "No fuck you!" and every few weeks they get into arguments and secretly change the notes and hope the other guy doesn't notice.

    And that is why you don't QQ about changes you know absolutely nothing about that is still on the PTR, as seen by us getting pets for 125 and 150.

    Hungering cold... 1.5 second cast? WTF?

    glad to see frost Dks are being looked at more

    Good on them for the Spellsteal change. Seriously, a 6 second cooldown was absurd. Double the mana cost seems plenty fair.

    Not sure why they reverted the Ring of Frost nerf though.

    What a nerf.

    Man, Blizz REALLY doesn't want us to use Divine Light. Now to work on my RBG wins.
