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.

    Yea, it's a huge nerf. But since they released the t13 ele bonuses, I was wondering how they'd make it worth dropping the t12 2 piece... I guess that's our answer: they're not going to make t13 better, they're just going to nerf t12 into the ground so the stats on t13 look worth it.

    actually on ptr the JC epic gems are givin +77 to maintain th +81 bonus. Only BS is OP and gives an unfair advantage because every other profession gives +80 and 2*50stat extra-will be +100 bonus

    Yea Blizzard, cause 5% additional Attack Power for Beast Mastery totally makes up the 8,000 DPS difference between BM and MM. Jesus Christ. That's like trying to put out a forest fire with a squirt gun.

    Making BM a viable raid spec would be the worst idea ever since it is quite possibly the boringest rotation in all of wow.

    Nice opinion, i personally love bm.

    So no Arms changes huh. Then I guess Blizzard has no intention of actually buffing arms to be viable in high end pvp. Bad enough all of Season 10 was lost, but now I can't expect to be able to play my warrior in pvp till the next F%$KING expansion. And they can suck my nuts if they think I will be a step and fetchit flag boy for another season. F$%^ that! and F%&$ their new slam graphic!

    Arcane says hi.
    Talking of Arcane, the 100% to 40% on AM is a tooltip fix. Finally.

    Have you ever played an Arcane Mage? Takes boring to a whole new level.

    BM is the most boring rotation of the 3 Hunter specs, but it's also one of the most unique and interesting specs in the game as a whole. You have no idea how much it would mean to me if I could use my giant green Devilsaur in raids again. He's been stabled far too long.

    All the feral changes listed above are tooltip corrections with the exception of 0.3% hp per point of rage, unsure if that was an intended change or not.
