MMO-Champion - Patch 4.2 - PTR Build 14199, Patch 4.2 /roar emote sounds
New "/roar" Sounds Added in 4.2

Hey everyone!

As many of you who play goblins and worgen may have noticed, the sound usually associated with your characters' "/roar" emote was removed in patch 4.1. This was done to help resolve an issue that caused the sounds associated with the both the "/roar" and "/attack" emotes to play simultaneously whenever the "/attacktarget" command was used.

We know that many of you missed hearing your /roars, so we're happy to report that, in patch 4.2, goblin and worgen characters will once again have a sound associated with the emote. Even better, we're adding brand new sounds for "/roar" for all playable races.

We're excited to be able to introduce these new sounds and hope you have a roarin' good time with the updated emotes. (Yes, I went there. Rawr. :3)




Patch 4.2 - PTR Build 14199
A new build is being deployed on test realms.

Item Additions
A couple of new Firelands Raid loot and the addition of Drakehide Leg Armor and Murky's Little Soulstone used to summon Murkablo, a Diablo-themed Murloc.

Official Notes Update
Official notes have been updated and are awesome because they aren't the result of my crazy datamining, you know. Also these notes seems to be from a later build and any change listed there is most likely more up to date than datamined changes

  • All character races now have a /roar sound.

Classes: General
Pets
  • The Defensive pet stance will now only cause the player's pet to attack enemies which attack the pet or the master.

Death Knight (Forums / Talent Calculator / Skills/Talents)
Frost
  • Annihilation now increases Obliterate damage by 12/24/36%, down from 15/30/45%.

Glyphs
  • Glyph of Dark Succor has been redesigned. Rather than placing a 15% maximum health floor on Death Strike healing while in Frost or Unholy Presence, it causes the next Death Strike within 15 seconds after killing a foe that yields experience or Honor Points to heal for at least 20% of the death knight's maximum health (still requires Frost or Unholy Presence).

Druid (Forums / Talent Calculator / Skills/Talents)
Feral
  • Thrash initial base damage has been increased to 1464 1042, up from 339. Initial damage attack power scaling has been decreased to 13.8% 9.82%, down from 19.2%. Periodic base damage has been increased to 816 581, up from 189. Periodic damage attack power scaling has been decreased to 2.35% 1.67%, down from 3.26%. In addition, a bug was corrected where armor decreased the periodic damage done by this ability.

Hunter (Forums / Talent Calculator / Skills/Talents)
Marksmanship
  • Careful Aim now grants additional critical strike chance against targets over 90% health, up from 80% health.

Pets
  • 8 new rare tamable beasts have been added, each of which provides a unique taming challenge. Will you be the first hunter to tame Deth'tilac, the rarest and most powerful of them all? Players will need to progress through the Hyjal Regrowth and Molten Front daily questing areas in order to unlock access to the full gamut of taming challenges.

Mage (Forums / Talent Calculator / Skills/Talents)
  • Arcane Blast damage done has been reduced by 5%.

Priest (Forums / Talent Calculator / Skills/Talents)
Shadow
  • Psychic Horror no longer has a forward facing requirement, making it consistent with other non-projectile-based crowd control spells.

Rogue (Forums / Talent Calculator / Skills/Talents)
Subtlety
  • Hemorrhage base damage has been increased by 40%.

Warlock (Forums / Talent Calculator / Skills/Talents)
  • Soul Fire is now available at level 20, down from level 54.

Warrior (Forums / Talent Calculator / Skills/Talents)
  • Recklessness and Deadly Calm can no longer be used at the same time. One cannot be used while the other is active, but using one does not put the other on its full cooldown.

Arms
  • Two-Handed Weapon Specialization weapon damage increase has been lowered to 12%, down from 20%.

Fury
  • Dual Wield Specialization weapon damage increase has been lowered to 5%, down from 10%.

Items
  • If a player wins a Need roll under the Need Before Greed system on a Bind on Equip item, the item will become Soulbound to that player. The item will remain unbound if won via a Greed roll.

User Interface
  • The order in which characters are listed at the Character Selection screen can now be rearranged and saved.
  • Raid Profiles have been added which allow players to save the raid window user interface layout based on type of content (i.e. 10-player raids, 25-player raids, Battlegrounds, etc.) for future use.

    Just one more feature to toss aside with the awesome invention of background sounds while playing WoW. I appreciate the music that goes in to all of this most of the time, but really, even the music can get old-and so do the cool boss sounds, and that insipid sound of Spell Fx

    The pet looks so happy, hes like "im demonic sup"

    though i am a little sad, I now wish i had the marine pet so I'd have all 3 from blizzcon, i also was hoping for a mount.

    Gnome roars.... I was in fuckin' stitches espically the male, sounds like he is almost shittin' himself

    Draenei female made me LOL SO HARD, as did Female Gnome.

    Worgen is completely and utterly badass.

    I hope that crap about hunter pets change. One pet type shouldn't be more powerful than another unless they are adding ferocity/cunning/tenacity style pets with the missing abilities i.e a non exotic ferocity pet with 4% physical increase. I really hope that it was just poor word choice on Blizzards part with the "the rarest and most powerful of them all". I hate having to farm a pet for hours on end just to maximize myself to keep my raid spot versus another hunter.

    Male gnome one is my fav.

    murkablo is likely this years blizzcon pet.
    since blizz are aiming to get dibalo 3 out late this year or earlyish next year i'd expect this years blizzcon to be mainly about diablo 3 anyway
    probably see heart of the swarm at E3 judging by them releasing the trailer for it just before E3,probably a tiny possibilty we could see a glipse of the terran expansion at blizzcon but would not hold hopes for it, likely just see more of heart of the swarm.

    im mostly looking forward to D3 anyway so any news about that is good for me

    lol mage's only viable raiding spec getting nerfed (minus like a FEW fights for fire)

    Tauren female sounds like a slaughtered pig, human female sounds like a rooster, and worgen male sounds like a tiger... GG Blizz.

    id expect most of blizzcon to be about D3, since its the game closest to release and we dont know alot about it atm.
    so its going to be a good blizzcon for diablo fans hopefully

    As an arms war, I hope the nerf to MM hunters is just as hard as an 8% reduction in flat damage. What am I talking about ofc it's not, I'm fine with being middle of the pack as long as I cut down the tall poppys with me...

    wtf female BE /roar... lol

    Taurens roar just needs to be a very loud moo. Would be far superior to the one in that video
  1. Korgard's Avatar
    Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
    What the hell is that? Most of those roar sound (not all) are so stupidly ridiculous and lame i cant find words to describe it. FAIL.
  1. Captain Midnight's Avatar
    They literally added new roars specifically for Worgen. Let's be honest and say that Blizzard is showing some Alliance favoritism here.

    This, very much so ^^

    I don't understand why they're special, but maybe there's an error?
