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.

    Past Arrakoa are much less savage then the ones in Outland, they are more of a arrakoa-master-race, supposedly standing tall and still able to fly.

    I have no problem with reusing animations in general, I just wish they'd stop reusing protodrake ones. I never liked protodrakes to begin with and they use them all the damn time.

    Yeah thats why I said that past Arrakoa are more royal, so its a given that things will look less savage on thier end.

    I'd actually assume because we can get these BEFORE WoD, it will be 5XX (Can't remember) i.e, the beginning of MoP profs, not 600.
    First only for higher Level Chars, then sold seperately...

    Veteran Bonus? Looks/sounds like they're at last rewarding players who've been playing the game for a certain number of years.

    Given that this is a patch with no raids to be testing and so on, I expect to see it implemented very soon; 2-4 weeks.

    I don't like digital CE as I want the physical box and the toys. Guess I'll have to wait till release to get the goodies.

    In this case, it makes a lot of sense though. Ever seen a crow/raven walk? Now increase the size of it, and we've got something that looks a lot like a proto-drake honestly.

    My thoughts exactly. The animation fits perfectly when compared to the Raven Lord mount. This is just a larger, flying, more detailed one!

    AND BABY ANZU! OMG WANT NAO! KTHXBAI!

    Probably longer actually, there has been no 2 week warning for the end of season 14 yet and I cannot see season 15 being any less than 20 weeks and there will be the WOD pre-patch, so I am guessing July-Aug at the earliest

    I don't know if that's really how big it is but model viewer shows me as really small on it. IF it is that big its like an olephant from LotR! Which would be SHAWEET! But unlikely...
