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%.

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 hope the Esence of Destruction drops off the new heroic dungeons because it doesn't make sense to have a crafted item that usually is worse than the raid drop, to require a material dropped by a raid boss.

    Don't count your chickens yet. The word with testing is that mastery trumps haste now (with Radiance effecting mastery and haste less valuable as a result)

    Did anyone notice the mats for the BS items compared to LW items....40 Volatile water more and 1 chaos orb less, otherwise much the same (hides are more than Hardened bars mostly but still fairly equivalent). So the tradeoff seems to be 1 orb which will be like 100g or so in a few weeks, for 40 water which on my server would currently be around 800g IF there is even that many on that day (seems to go between a few hundred and then almost none for a few days at stupidly high prices)Tailoring items also seem stupidly cheaper considering the cloths are worth maybe 500g each (30x volatile, or 5 chaos orbs) and then the new drop material. I really hope they fix the LW items to a more reasonable cost in materials.

    I'm curious about how WoW would look like, if the players actually decided how it should look like.
    My first guess is a terribly imbalanced pile of garbage.

    Your post history is awful(ly depressing). '600 days /played' since beta, but all you seem to do is complain about every change made. Why are you paying for a game you apparently find so uninteresting that you bot to get gold?

    Crafted items have always had the same iLvl as the normal mode raid drops, so it wouldn't make sense for the essences to drop off the new heroic 5-mans.

    How exactly is LW getting shafted? Also, what will cause JC to stop making money with the new epic gems? The uncut epic gems are acquired through the new raid (although there's been datamined patterns for transmuting the uncut epic gems)

    You'll still need a JC to cut those epic gems, and I don't see how JC wouldn't be able to make any money off that.

    Gold sinks exist for a reason. Get over it.


    mailing heirlooms is annoying? for who? Whats really annoying is Bind to account Heirlooms not really being bind to account. Fix it so we can send them to other realms before you try to fix minor inconveniences please

    Mages get 500 Haste for their 2pc? Wow. That's.... insane. It seems like the most beneficial and reliable 2pc ever.

    Seriously Blizzard, even Aeriagames managed to pull off a decent system for "heirlooms" and other crap. Why you can't do it... just shows that you really can't run a mmo these days. Can't blame you tho. Way more future in D3 than WoW that's for sure. WoW is old D3 is new. With the upcoming mmos on the horizon things can change fast but looking at the past they will most likely fail like the ones before them. WoW was probably a one hit wonder.

    I still dont get, how you guys make money via professions ? Take any profession - does not matter - its very low profitable and time consuming. I remember I was great fun of profession gold making in Vanilla and TBC, but now. And what for you need so much money then ? I play once per week, I didnt farm anything (save some reputation grinds) since end of TBC and was always rich. Take nowadays - you can farm Firelands (2 hours per week for 7\7 normal, or around 3-4 for at least 6 heroic) and get money from trash, boss drops, but mostly from BoE selling. No one in our raid need BoE yet - so we sell it and divide money between raiders. Isnt it better in matters of time to make money ? By this way I made around 40k gold excluding repair\flask\food\pots cost in past 4 months. So what I'm doing wrong ?
