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)

    I love the Feral T13 changes, making FC a tier bonus is stupid.

    Forget the heirlooms.Call me crazy or whatever...But I think that once you have one character hit max level, your remaining characters should level 10% faster. And once you get a 2nd character to max level, your remaining characters should level another 10% faster... So that by the time you have 9 characters maxed level, you should get a 90% increase in exp... Or... 10% of the remaining exp required to hit the next level. I've leveled 5 level 85s... I had 13 level 80s back in Wotlk... 7 Horde 6 Alliance... So you can understand my frustration about leveling the same content over and over again...

    Its to ensure theres the minimum of healer cloth in the game. You simply cannot have Priests have the same number of items as Holy Paladins - Imagine the tears.

    Besides, what would be the fun if you would have to stop whispering for the Mage/Warlock BiS gear?

    Agreed, I do not understand that. AP is already at a lower CD due to talents (so comes back faster) and Combustion's long CD is one of
    the big complaints of firemages. Also I do not understand why AB gets 100% effect and fire only 50% - AB is already cast faster than Fireball. The other way round would make waaaaays more sense.

    The stats on those agility leather wrists look amazing. Hit and haste, and then 2 freaking red sockets.

    Why do the new craftables not use any Truegold at all, I wonder?

    Gah, why do they have to give Arcane Blast 100% at increasing haste? >_< Arcane mages don't need haste; it lowers our DPS in the long run.

    Thats not important, what is important is that Chaud managed to generate another few thousand impressions on their banner ads with next to zero 'news' whatsoever

    well then you can easily increase your dps by simulating having less haste by standing there and not pressing anything

    Glad to see they decreased the cost of Void Storage.

    2p isn't useless. With the amount of haste stacked up + 4pc bonus, MM Hunters can aim for a 2 Aimed Shot per Chimera Shot rotation. And for BM + SV, it's a ridiculously good bonus.

    Regarding Account Hierlooms:

    In the tab where your professions and mounts live, have a tab for 'account rewards' such as purchased mounts and heirlooms. If you want them you simply drag and drop a copy into your bags.

    Job done.

    You should suggest that to their forums. And add p.s. tabard thingy.

    Healer, 2P -- After using Power Infusion or Divine Hymn
    I still thinks this screws over holy quite more. Even if they get 23 seconds instead of 10. Dunno >_<. Maybe lightwell is a good idea. But i guess there are some who don't take that talent?

    They better buff Divine Hymn if this goes live :S
