Patch 4.3: Tier 13 Set Bonus Update
Last night's PTR build changed a couple of Tier 13 Set Bonuses, it seems that they're more recent than the latest update of the official preview but you might want to wait for an official confirmation just in case! For a complete list of the T13 Set Bonuses, check out the official preview:

  • Feral, 4P -- Frenzied Regeneration also affects all raid and party members. This effect cannot be triggered if you have been in Bear Form for less than 15 sec. In addition, using Tiger's Fury will cause your next Ravage to cost no energy, not require stealth, and have no positioning requirement for 10 sec.

Hunter
  • 2P -- Steady Shot and Cobra Shot generate double the amount of focus.
  • 4P -- Your Arcane Shot ability has a chance to grant 30% haste to you and your pet for 15 sec.

Mage
  • 2P -- Your Arcane Blast has a 100% chance and your Fireball, Frostfire Bolt, and Frostbolt spells have a 50% chance to grant Stolen Time, increasing your haste rating by 50 for 30 sec and stacking up to 10 times. When Arcane Power, Combustion, or Icy Veins expires, all stacks of Stolen Time are lost.
  • 4P -- Each stack of Stolen Time also reduces the cooldown of Arcane Power by 7 sec, Combustion by 3 sec, and Icy Veins by 6 sec.

Priest
  • Healer, 2P -- After using Power Infusion or Divine Hymn, the mana cost of your healing spells is reduced by 25% for [10|23] sec. (10 sec for Discipline, 23 for non-Discipline.)
  • Healer, 4P -- Your Power Word: Shield has a 10% chance to absorb 100% additional damage and increase the mana granted by Rapture by 100%, and the duration of your Holy Word abilities is increased by 33%.

Warrior
  • Protection, 2P -- Your Revenge ability now also grants a physical absorption shield equal to 20% of the damage done by Revenge to its primary target.
  • Protection, 4P -- Your Shield Wall ability now grants 50% of its effect to all party and raid members.

Void Storage Updated Costs
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
I just recently got back from a meeting with Ghostcrawler and have an update to share regarding the prices for Void Storage. Instead of charging 1000g to unlock a Void Storage vault and 100g to deposit and withdraw items, we're looking at only requiring the following amounts for each transaction:

Unlock - 100g
Deposit - 25g
Withdrawal - Free

We agree with the suggestions we've seen that placing a higher fee on withdrawals would create a stronger deterrent for using Void Storage as a secondary bank. That said, we don't want players to find themselves in a situation where they are unable to retrieve an item simply because they don't have the gold. This is why we're leaning towards a more expensive deposit (to differentiate Void Storage from a normal bank) and allowing all withdrawals to be free. Please keep in mind that these prices may not hit the PTR and are, of course, subject to change before the release of 4.3.

Rather than potentially having my statements in this thread come back to bite me at some point in the future, I'm going to risk being confusing or sounding dumb.

In short, they agree that the process of mailing heirlooms around constantly is a little annoying. We'd prefer to try and work ourselves away from the method of mailing out BoA items in the future, like pets, mounts, etc. To that end, we have some design goals in mind that would improve this sort of item distribution system. And with those design goals have come some ideas for changing heirloom mechanics. This is sort of contrary to the idea I stated in this thread about just designing the system to allow players to mail their heirlooms all around their accounts without realm restrictions.

That's all of the information I can share at the moment, but I feel like it's worth pointing out that the design philosophy I stated earlier isn't so set in stone -- we're reevaluating these types of systems as we look toward the future. I apologize if I've caused any confusion. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

    The Daily Blink is similar to a post I made a few days ago. The Deathwing loot looks like we just grab a chunk of his flesh, stick some of his armour onto it, then shove a handle into it.

    If you think poop comes out there, I don't want to imagine where yours is coming from.

    OT: Would be neat if they added an unlocking feature for BoA stuff to the game. Once unlocked, every character on every server can make use of it at any time. Maybe they do something along those lines once battle.net achievements are implemented. That could be the tech they need to pull such stuff off.

    Am I reading this right? What is the difference between the Tailoring legs? They both have the same stats but different names. Somebody screwed up...

    Blizz did this before.
    Kilt of Trollish Dreams and Phase-Twister Leggings are the exact same.

    the duration of your Holy Word abilities is increased by 33%
    Anyone know what does the "duration" part refers to?

    Because items in the PTR are always the final version, right? I mean, it's not like Blizzard would ever screw up enough to acutally use *gasp* placeholder stats on a Test Realm, right?

    I would guess that maybe, just based on the name and the stats of the two wrists, "World Mender's Pants" will be healing legs. And will eventually have Spirit instead of crit or haste on them (maybe even Spi / Mastery?).

    No, this is different and obviously all the gear listed here is subject to change as it's currently riddled with errors. The World Mender's Pants are supposed to have Spirit on them, not crit.

    Once again Leatherworkers get shafted with items that are where their specific mats cost triple in total compared to BS AND we have to buy an extra 40 primals because Pristine Hides got nerfed over and over. This is some stupid shit to do again, FL BS patterns (and don't forget the easy 365 that are hugely overpriced and overly easy to get) is still so profitable while LWing is going to be making a loss after first two weeks.

    Did you really write this? The most profitable profession and you want more? Wow. Lol also.

    Now they just need to remove the mastery on the pally pants and replace it with haste instead.

    Thats true, but AP will never give you that much bonus DPS as Combustion do. We still didnt see mage changes - I bet you will see many differences.
