MMO-Champion - Patch 4.2.2 on Test Realms soon
Patch 4.2.2 on Test Realms soon?
A wild Patch 4.2.2 appeared on the test realms download servers a couple of hours ago, and it looks like we'll go through a bugfix patch before we get to see Patch 4.3.

Important - Most of these changes are nothing more than tooltip fixes to reflect Patch 4.2 Hotfixes already active on live servers. I'm mostly documenting them for the sake of it.

    This doesn't seem right, the numbers don't make sense. and I'm currently sitting in front of my warrior (has it in his off-hand) and it seems the tooltip is broken again. says 3.8 and 2003-3006 for dmg but still has the 659.2 dps rating. Can anyone confirm blizz's "oops" moment between 4.2 and 4.2.0a?

    The top end of the Deathblade right now is like 2769. wouldn't 2999 be a buff from what it was 'changed' to?

    Can someone explain what those PvP Arena Title changes mean? I'm not entirely sure what they mean by "Challenger now also includes Vicious Gladiators" etc etc?

    it means that you can get the achievement "Challenger" if you got that title on the last season (Vicious)...

    That is it? What 'bout pet bar problems?
    "This is a known bug currently in the game, our developers are aware of the problem and we are currently working on a solution. "
    That is all?

    i have a feeling blood dks are gonna have their time in pvp. Prot pallys and warriors had their time in WotLK, but now those blood dks can stack necrotics with an extra 30% crit on death strike, which hits harder than obliterate when specced into it with full RP. Plus they can live forever, much longer than the other tank classes can.
