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.

    Whatever. I'm done with arguing with people over the exact definition of "P2W".

    The point is, it's now a money game. All $15 a month gets you is an opportunity to play as a second class citizen next to the cash shop using aristocrats.

    There are far too many minor weird things happening specifically to Karazhan over the past few months. Call out my tinfoil hat all you want, but I can't help but think something is actually happening at this point as opposed to just "loll we keep getting bored and we hate cobwebs".

    can't wait for blizzard to make another awesome mount but only make it available through their store...

    I wish they made cool mounts from raids again it's so disappointing killing heroic garrosh and getting the scorpion

    it's pretty obvious that the stormcrow isnt a store mount if you just used you're brain.





    the scorpion that drops is a mechanical monstrosity full of saws and fire and lazers. It's awesome. I have no idea what you're mad about. Just seems like people are scraping the bottom of the barrel for negative things to say about WoW again.

    It really isn't, nothing in the blizzard store gives any in game advantage over those that do not use it.

    LOL. Let's make the Alliance's defensive apparatus even stronger and more durable. That will fix AV.

    The NPCs at the bunkers are already a PITA to kill, lets buff them ... good luck capping bunkers now especially if Alliance decides to interfere.

    Nobody else noticed this lazy typo then?

    "Dread Raven (New) Summons and dismisses an Imperial Quilen."

    If this is indeed the new expansions collectors edition rewards, i find it rather silly, as unless you return to old worlds, you cant use it till 6.1.

    I know a ground mount is not as appealing to the eye or the brain, but would have made more sense.

    Why wouldn't you be able to use it?
    It has walking animations and is using the same skeleton as the Armored Skyscreamer -- a mount that scales with your riding and can be used in bgs.
  1. LocaDeeks's Avatar
    Ok, i worded it badly.

    You can use it, but most flying mounts look silly running on the ground, if we are forced to stay grounded i would prefer, and will use a real ground mount.

    Just for the sake of it keep in mind that in a few month its the 20th. for warcraft and the 10th. for wow it is a "realy realy" small posebility but it could be for that two

    If you read the tool tip it says:
    This mount changes depending on your Riding skill and location.
    Rather than
    This is a flying mount.
    This is a scaling mount that will work as both a ground and flying mount.

    If you think about it, that is very similar to the way konami titles their Castlevania series. Which is double interesting since the pre-wrath launch had a Castlevania homage that was in kara.
