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.

    A mini Anzu too? Yup, soon as the per-purchase is available I'm going to be all over that. They will go nicely with my Ravenlord mount

    Those two are different things and massive time spans involved.

    Oh wait they are going to start complaining how CE is technically a P2W purchase, and the Ravenlord is reusing old model.

    Guess there's really no pleasing the mud-slingers.
    It is. You pay extra, you get a silly mount that you will use for a week then never touch again.

    I'm overjoyed about finally having a flying Anzu and intend to make it the mainstay mount of my druid.

    But how is it a P2W? How are you better than the others in skill?

    And people laughed when I said it would use the protodrake skeleton. ( Skyscreamer, but its just a modified protodrake).
    I want a new mount skeleton:<

    I'm betting at least one will come in WoD.


    It is.
    Just as much as the TGC mounts were.

    Dread hatchling says in the pet menu that it is in fact the WoD C.E. pet!!!!!!!!!!!

    It's in the PTR. that is if you're a type of person to go to the ptr and look for it and not the type that spams trade chat for old raids and arenas. >.>

    Much needed Alterac Valley buffs there. Thanks Blizzard!

    Dread Hatchling is listed on the PTR as being from the WoD CE. "The dark wings will cloud and consume the minds of the weak, because they are just so adorable!"
  1. Keile's Avatar
    I rather like that they are buffing the Timeless Isle weapons ilvls up. It felt kinda wrong for them to be 476's considering the rest of the stuff is 496+.
    Makes getting weapons for my alts easier
  1. Moradim's Avatar
    77% base resil.

    whoever is in charge of pvp should be fired, this is an ugly mess. pvp has never been worse than it is right now.

    Yep.


    I'm sure we were all aware already, but here - finishing blow to those who think it might be a raid or store mount and pet:

    Lol noticed that aswell. And since the Quilen was a CE/DD mount I agree that so will the Dread Raven.
    Also I guess this will be the pre-WoD patch? I havnt played too long(since 4.3) and this reminds me of 4.3.1 (if i still remember correctly).

    So did I. I called it the moment I saw the mount tease.



    Still good to get confirmation, though. And this is one Digital Deluxe I won't ignore.



    I still want to get the MoP Digital Deluxe sometime, though. I like the Imperial Quilen mount, but I just never really felt like spending 15 euros for it. I might soon. However, is there a chance that they'll remove the option for digital deluxe once the WoD normal digital and deluxe digital pre-orders come around? Maybe you'll lose the ability to upgrade from normal digital MoP to MoP digital deluxe. Any word on that? I really don't wanna miss out on the Quilen. :P
