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.

    Whatever minute buff this does amount to it wont do anything to bring it close to frost's damage. Looks like another patch of playing the most boring spec in the game -.-

    Feral buffs? Really blizzard? REALLY? D Glad I've quit already.

    The death coil nerf is just a tooltip change. Verified it's already 23% in the live game.

    Yeah I'm super old and have been very much into music since I was around 12 and I NEVER heard of that song, I watched the video and I can say I never hard it before either.

    Wait no, the stuff changed is the stuff in red? That makes no sense cause Death Strike wasn't like that before. Damn confusing data mined stuff.
    You can't possibly be serious.... spell power!!!!!

    "Unshackled Fury now only grants 2 base points of mastery, down from 8. those were the 4.1.0 changes made to Unshackled Fury that reduced the benefit from enrage effects, now with blizzard wanting to buff Melee damage to be competetive with ranged DPS in the new raid they are pretty much giving us those base pts back.

    Too bad we also lose our 5% damage bonus from dual wield specialization, so we really don't get buffed

    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
    Have never heard of it. Had to go look it up. It's a good song though.

    Biggest surprise for me is how noone pays attention to things around the new legendaries. That kind of confirmed my assumption that it being for only one class will mark it as the least famous legendary weapon. I don't even think rogues are interested in it now as much as they are still into getting the glaives, even though they are easy to get(sort of).

    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?
    Souldarite and Bloodvine are no longer available within the game, which makes some really decent-looking crafted items uncraftable for now. With transmog online, this needs to be fixed.

    Enchanting Enchanting: Enchant Weapon - Windwalk now stacks with passive movement speed effects.
    This has always been the case. It's just a tooltip correction. Or at least it's always stacked with Pursuit of Justice.

    Lame that they removed bloodvine req. I was hoping for some unique items in 4.3. Was also selling bloodvine..

    That's NOT a tooltip clarification to shaman t12. That's a pretty gigantic nerf.
  1. Mindstripper's Avatar
    Why are they not changing the DPS 4p for DK's? Don't they get that we HATE runic empowerment. We don't want anything to do with it. Maybe have Killing Machine make Obliterate free as well as a crit for Frost and an increase in the duration of Dark Transformation for Unholy. Seriously. Anything but what it is. It sucks.
  1. Tapout's Avatar
    I don't mind the nerf to Elemental Shaman 2 piece so much. By all early indications 2pT12 and 2pT13 were going to be far and away the best setup and Blizzard doesn't want that. But it'll still be awhile before people actually GET 4pT13, so its really going to suck in that in-between time.

    There is a disturbing resemblance between Illidan's new model and Agent Smith, just look at his face! ;D
