MMO-Champion - Patch 4.2 - PTR Build 14288
Patch 4.2 - PTR Build 14288
A new build is being deployed on test realms. The build isn't a release candidate anymore and is flagged as "Test" but it's already 4 days old and I doubt it will have any impact on the release date of the patch.


Also, the language selection menu is now fully implemented and the game is now available in all localizations just by selecting the language from the menu and restart their game. It it looks like more languages are now available and all languages seem to be fully supported in-game.


Strings
The description of the arena season confirms slightly that the patch is to be expected on June 21st.

Trial Accounts
  • TRIAL_CAPPED = "Trial cap reached.";
  • TRIAL_LEVEL_CAPPED = "Trial level cap reached.";
  • TRIAL_RESTRICTED = "You need to convert your account to access this feature.";



Spell Changes
Note: Don't pay attention to the tooltips of druid spells, they're slightly bugged for the moment, just stick to the nice notes below.

Balance
  • Starfire damage has been increased by 23%.
  • Wrath damage has been increased by 23%.

Feral
  • Mangle now deals 540% normal damage plus 302, instead of 530% normal damage plus 315.
  • Rake initial damage on hit now deals the same damage as each periodic tick (and is treated the same for all combat calculations). Periodic damage now gains 14.7% of attack power per tick, up from 12.6%, and base damage per tick has been lowered from 557 to 56. There is a known issue with Rake's tooltip being incorrect from this change will be corrected in a future patch. (Taken from official notes, tooltip bugged)
  • Ravage (Cat) now deals 950% damage plus 532, instead of 975% damage plus 330.
  • Shred now deals 540% damage plus 302, instead of 520% damage plus 330.
  • Savage Roar now increases autoattack damage done by 80%, up from 50%.

    Off Topic

    Anyone know the email for customer complaints/questions?
    I just got permantly banned for posting this

    Go Nucks (title)
    That is all (post contents)

    I'm baffled, I can only assume Blizzard has an illogical hatred of hockey. I posted it in the general forums right before the game started. There is no off topic anymore.

    /mightily confused.

    edit: there seems to be no links to customer complaints anymore like there used to be. This is just stupidly bizarre.

    It would be nice, but it is impossible for geographical reasons.

    Instead of guaranteeing 2.5 crits, you're likely guaranteed 1.25ish?

    Sure it's a nerf, but it's insanely out weighted by the buff.
    You have no clue about moonkin mechanics.

    How so? There are other MMO's that have international servers and as it is, there's a LOT of Australians/New Zealanders playing on US servers where time zones are drastically different than their own. If people are willing to pay for it, I fail to see the problem.

    This has always been their problem. They buff and nerf things by such a huge amount, they never reach a "sweet spot".
    It seems like they don't want a balanced sweet spot. They give big nerfs and buff like 5% to 15% and it really changes the class potency. then people start playing that "flavor of the month class" after its buffed until it gets nerfed, and they buff another class. thats not to say each class gets it fair share of buffs in the long run, but that there are always big changes. they probably think this keeps people interested more than buffing 1% and keeping that class the same for 12 months. I had more to say but people are only typing 5 words in this thread, this is probably TL;DR anyway

    That unholy buff is... well... way too much. I won't really complain because I like frost as much as unholy, but my frost spec does only a little bit more than my unholy does after the nerfs to frost. This buff will just turn unholy's scaling up to 11.

    I still think frost will have better control and burst with their damage, but the snowballing from unholy will just be insane.

    Still happy they did something for unholy.

    What do the language settings change?

    Interface elements?
    Quest text?
    Item names?
    Dungeon/raid encounter scripts?
    Audio elements?

    Anyone know all the details?

    Ok, turns out that I can't seem to locate the blue post that was supposed to basically back up what I said. I do know that there was a blue post out there stating the reasons why US <--> EU isn't offered, though. :|

    lets hope we have some games encouraging people to learn another language. I can't stand that they dub shit in France/spain/Germany. Nice countries tho. and no I'm not from an English speaking country.
