Patch 5.3 PTR - Build 16781
Build 16781 will be deployed to the PTR realms soon.

  • The 200 mount achievement now rewards a red or blue Armored Dragonhawk, based on your faction.
  • Many new item level 516 items with random stats have been added, with the possibility of at least some of them being heroic scenario loot.
  • New Item Level 600 cloaks were added, which are likely related to Wrathion's quest line. There are cloaks for all four of the August Celestials and Wrathion mentions augmenting the power of your cloak after speaking to them.
  • PvP Resilience has been removed from most gear and stats have been rebalanced on other PvP gear.
  • Two new horse like mounts have been added, but only one has a working model.
  • A new PvP tabard and enchants were added.
