MMO-Champion - Mists of Pandaria - Beta Build 15657
Mists of Pandaria - Beta Build 15657
A minor build will be deployed on beta realms shortly, it seems to have mostly spell changes and a lot of model bugfixes but we'll keep digging! I also assume that this build is here to unlock the level cap and open the Shado-pan Monastery and Mogu'shan Palace to players.

New Items
Nothing really interesting, some Glyph items have also been added and probably means that some of the new glyphs are now craftable, or will be soon.

    Hopefully the coming raid tiers in 5.1, 5.2 and 5.3 continue to have loads of raid bosses as well.

    "Incarnation: Tree of Life no longer enhances Wrath."
    WTF WHY. Half the time I'm popping tree of life is so I can lay down some deeps when there's no serious raid damage going on - ie, start of HUltraxion. URGH.

    Under the paladin changes, Mastery: Divine Bulwark should be under a Protection bullepoint not Holy. And by the way what does it mean it increases SoR effectiveness? More dmg absorbed? It lasts more time?
  1. greyghost's Avatar
    Nine second cheap shot, and HoW hitting like a wet noodle.

    Looks like PvP's going oldschool. :P

    Man, that polymorfic Acid Trip left me in excited anticipation.

    The change to honor among thieves sucks. Used to like going into fights (pvp or pve) with 5 combo points already. It was especially nice in PVE.



    But whoo boy is it ever time to level a shadow priest

    Yep not only more bosses but they are also spread out among 3 raids, its a much better system like that, I hope they stick to it through MoP.

    Well they had to do that due to LFR, queuing for 30 mins for 2 bosses only in LFR would have been bad.

    Spell Reflection now has a 30 sec cooldown, up from 15 sec. Noooooooooooooo!

    Confirmed: Panthers are directly inspired by Voltron.

    Also changes to Gnomish Army Knife are both useful and funny.

    Yeah but Devouring Plague now generates health.

    So under the paladin changes, it has a decrease in power for Holy Shock (92.5% now, 115.6% previously) listed as "Up from" when it should be "Down from". Also, Divine Bulwark is the Protection mastery. I hope.

    Skimming through I didn't notice any other overt mistakes.

    Should have been a NEW receipe for eng instead of a change to a two expansions old item!
