Patch 4.3 - PTR Build 14849
A new PTR build is being deployed on test realms, check out the latest update of the official notes which most likely reflect changes made in this build.



And as usual if it's datamined and not in the official notes, it might just be a bug or a screw up on my side, you know how it works!

Client Strings
An interesting string that hints at a feature to "suspend" your LFG queue, and a "Heat" power type most likely used during the fight against Deathwing.

    The Fire changes...seem to be reverse of what the patch notes say. All spells were listed as getting buffs...but the damage is less? The percentages are off too. Seems like the changes just haven't gone into this build.

    About the string: ""Your queue has been temporarily suspended. You will retain your position in the queue.";" Maybe the client will automatically put us in pause mode if we disconnect and then un-pause us at the same old queue position if we connect back with in ~5 minutes.

    Can't be that famous if I've never heard of it.

    Anyway, looks like Frost DKs are getting hit quite a bit by the nerfbat. Too bad the changes to Unholy still won't render it able to compete with Frost.

    Also, I don't like the thought of Blizzard removing Souldarite and Bloodvine from the required mats. Let's keep some of Old Azeroth around, ya?

    I know you're kidding, but, some people haven't heard of WoW, believe it or not. Doesn't mean it's not famous. :P
