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.

    Btw did people go through the Ultrhaxion Journal Entry? It confirms Thrall being the Earth Warder. Also heroic abilities for bosses have been added. Cannot say I like them, they are not that much different.

    If it does, I still doubt that it'd be a permanent job.
