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.

    Back then the Internet was not as huge as it is today, so it was a lot harder for bands to actually be known abroad.

    However if it really is reference to the song, it means that the number is not just some random gibberish and most likely is not just a placeholder.

    They made Illidans uncorrupted character right but the corrupted version and arthas model looked like a fat fluffy shit in the water.

    lol -- You can't be nerfed with what you don't have. The Tier 13 bonus got adjusted. How exactly is that a nerf when you can't even get it? Better for them to adjust it now when it doesn't affect us than for it to go live and nerf it.

    U won't quit over a PTR thing. You won't quit over a Live thing.

    You will see there will be more changes made before it will go live. God forbid they may even revert this PTR change!

    I, for one, take this all with a grain of salt till i see the final notes, + upcomming changes to it when we have 4.3 on live. Then we can complain or cheer about something.

    You might want to re read it again, it says t12...

    How is what they did to the T12 Elemental 2-Set a 'clarification'? Its an outright nerfbat to the face, and completely different to the old bonus. But yeah, they've destroyed it so we all need to go T13. And until then our DPS is going to be horrible!

    Never saw patch notes where 90% comments were complaints... Even if a class is buffed, people complain that not their favorite spec was buffed or whatever shit, like oh no i think instead of buffing fireball by 16% i'd rather like scorch to be buffed by 30% , fuck you blizz QQ -.-" all i read all day long on mmo is crying about how shit this game is. wait for the things to settle down, because blizz is tuning things on PTR, thats for what it is made for, and if changes arent right, play on the PTR prove it and post it as constructive feedback..

    Is there anyway to view text strings from boss encounters? I'd love to see the ones for the two Faceless General bosses from the Dragon Soul raid - their audio is them speaking in their own language, but Faceless Ones usually whisper a translation to you. You can hear them mention N'Zoth a couple of times, so I'm curious as to what they're saying about him - maybe drop some hints about what he's up to.
