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.

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

Frost

Paladin (Forums / Talent Calculator / Skills/Talents)

    My bad, been up for a while and was loling at a melee class having a cast time ability (slam doesn't count! ) while RoF is instant.

    Makes a bit more sense now I see hungering cold instead but still DAMN funny.

    If they're going to give us cast time on hungering cold then make it work with our melee haste, not just spell haste.
    This thing is quite good for small adds on conclave of wind 10 hm.

    Nerf DK's, buff mages. Seems like a constant theme here at Blizzard.

    It made a good ability almost useless. Also DKs are just as OP as mages right now. especially when you get up to 2k+

    I love how people bitch about ring of frost. It takes like 2-3 seconds to activate so don't be a retard and move?

    The 150-pet achievement seems a bit odd. It seems almost impossible to get without buying pets from the blizzard store, which isn't something every can do.
    Wasn't it Blizzard's stance to have achievements achievable by everyone, not just those with access to a creditcard?

    lol @ mages

    I hope hungering cold is a tooltip bug OR it will be a true CC in PvE (longer duration)

    Tehehe, I don't mind it though. I only have the olympic pet on my hunter, glad to see it'll soon have another partner. And when everyone eventually has the Celestial Dragon, I'll whip out the old model and be like I'm old school, or something, lol. Also lol @ spellsteal changes, my favorite mage spell, but will now be going oom after 2 uses. Maybe a glyph in the near future, maybe.

    nope - granted you'll find it much easier with a Blizzcon and a CE pet or two, but on the PTR I have 150 and the PTR strips off pets bought from the Blizzard Store. It's perfectly doable.

    So, people are saying warlocks can already brez, I've never noticed the ability of them able to do that?

    What? It STILL works with Divine Light, they just added two other heals to the set bonus instead of ONLY one....and reduced the amount by half (20 to 10% is reasonable considering it can bounce of 3 heals now instead 1)

    Personally I like that change....as using only Divine Light would be bad anyway...i can see Holy Light spamming being much more efficient now considering 100% travels through beacon and it will splash a nearby ally for 10% as well.

    Its hard now, but its 4.2 so there will be a few new pets so it will be easier?
    The store just serves as an 'easy' way to get them if you want to spend cash for it, but i doubt they will ever enforce achievements that can only be earned if you spend money in the blizzard store to reach certain numbers :P
