MMO-Champion - Patch 5.4.7 PTR - Build 17807
Update (10 PM EST): Added official Patch 5.4.7 Notes!

Patch 5.4.7 PTR - Build 17807
Build 17807 will be deployed to the PTR realms soon.

  • Prideful Gladiator's gear has an item level increase from 540 to 550 and has switched colors around for each faction from the Season 14 gear. (Example)
  • Reins of the Dread Raven and Dreadful Egg are likely to be the Collector's Edition rewards.
  • This PTR build added strings that indicate testing of the Level 90 boost. This includes the free boost that comes with Warlords of Draenor, as well as a paid boost feature.
  • Other changes indicate that Character Services may also be added to in the in-game store.
  • Another interesting string was added: CHARACTER_UPGRADE_NO_VETERAN_BONUS - No Veteran Bonus. It likely has to do with another string: CHARACTER_UPGRADE_PROFESSION_BOOST - Veteran Bonus: Level 60+ characters will also receive a skill level boost to their primary professions.

    Blizz has never suckered me into buying a collector's addition, but a no-longer-flightless Anzu....

    So the new flying Anzu is just a reskinned Skyscreamer.

    I really wish I could appreciate what seems to be their aesthetic so far for WoD. The mount and pet both look... diseased somehow. Compare them for example to the Ravenlord mount. They're like that, only crappier somehow.

    Yeah, if Anzu was molting and had parasites and you hotglued an ugly brass thing with a blue LED to its beak. :/

    No it's not. It's a new model, new texture. THE SKELETON itself is reused. Want to know why? BECAUSE IT TAKES A LOT OF TIME TO MAKE NEW SKELETONS. They have been doing this since BC.

    Nah, it will probably only be a short 12-16 week season - WoD will be out by mid-late June at the absolute latest.

    I need this mount and that pet in my collection. Awesome that they are going with making such an iconic mount (Raven Lord) modern and adapted to a world where we fly!...well, not until 6.1 or something, but still. :P. This mount might actually have my worgen druid switch out his flight form except for during gathering...

    Whinge whinge whinge from people all day long no matter what they do...do tell, how ELSE would a giant bird be moving on the ground? Now if it had been moving and sitting like a proto-drake, I would understand people complaining but this...this is just complaining for the sake of it, NOTHING else.

    It suits this mount perfectly. Don't like it? Well it is optional purchase. If they add NEW skeletons and models, we get "Shouldn't they be working on IMPORTANT stuff??", if they use perfectly fine old skeletons and thus saving time and STILL making the final product look splendid, then they're doing everything wrong anyways.

    That is a welcoming feature. Leveling LW for the countless time is just painful atm.

    I'm really excited and happy that this mount is for CE. Much better than the Quillian I think.

    It's not the protodrake skeleton, it's the skyscreamer skeleton.

    Placeholder for WoD. They'll change it once the time comes.

    Willing to bet the dread raven was meant to be for the store and the iron chimera was meant to be for the expansion. But someone messed up at blizzard.

    The veteran bonus appears to be a rumored buff to crafting professions for characters of a certain level. For example the free insta 90 or that toon that suddenly will be your raiding main. I have a feeling this will either push or destroy the crafting kit market.

    Yea b/c it's totally worth dev time to remake a completely new skeleton every time they create a new mount. It looks awesome the pet is awesome and I really hope this is the CE rewards. So how about we stop trying to whine about everything in life, accept a new thing for what it is, and enjoy life a little more. mmmkay.
