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.

    It's an extremely famous song from the 80's. In fact, I'm absolutely sure you've heard the song at least once in passing before.

    Age would have a lot to do with it though. If you're around age 15 or younger, I might understand if you'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?

    Or just being European, it might shock you but lots of songs don't make it when they cross the Atlantic (going either way) I've never heard of it and I have lots of memories of the 80's in terms of music

    What's up with the change to the Smoking Heart of the Mountain? Does that mean that now I can make many of those but only equip one? I guess some people could use it for leveling enchanting.

    Just curious how do you figure frost dks are getting nerfed by changing the wording to 100% crit instead of guaranteed crit :P?

    lol, unless none of professions will get bonus, BS will be overpowered then. With those gems all other professions would just get that bonus, and BS would have to wait for his epic gems - just like it was in wotlk.

    It's just a tooltip rewording, nothing about KM has actually changed.

    Because it could be read a couple of different ways, it could just be a rewording, or it could be that it just grants you a bonus to crit equal to what you already have.

    I'm personally more interested in the unholy changes, I could really care less about frost.
