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.

    Yes it was but the skeleton for it was old and reused. You confuse new model with skeleton.

    I think he meant the mount.

    But personally I like it a lot. This will probably be the first time I'll get the CE.

    Lol. Thats funny that summoning the new mount (possibly this expansions CE mount) summons the last expansion CE mount.


    Wait so prideful is grievous but for the dk alliance will get the red gear and horde will get blue?

    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
    So we are going to be able to have more than 60 characters? are they removing the limit from 50?

    I think that means level 60 or higher characters will get proffession boosts.

    I Really like this mount, but it kind of makes me mad that I wasted my time grinding that dungeon over and over again for 6 months for Anzu and now I can just "buy him". The sense of accomplishment/reward I had for this 1% drop rate mount is now gone.

    Blizzard keeps wanting us to go back to the old content. Why not replace for everyone who has an Anzu mount on their profile with this one and give those who "don't" have it something to strive for?

    In my opinion this creature doesn't really go with the new look and feel of Warlords (based on the only starting zones I could play at Blizzcon), but maybe it's just me.

    (if they are) those are the worst CE items I've ever seen, just some random birdy and his offspring

    Just skimmed the comments so apologies if someone already asked but no new PvP armor? :-(

    If by random you mean 'raven god' then yes

    OT: Surprised they are increasing resilience yet again since they said they would be drastically reducing or even removing it in WoD...

    You realize the Raven Lord and this new one don't really look the same? It's piss easy to tell if you have the Raven Lord.

    And as far as 'not fitting', keep in mind they didn't show the Arakkoa at Blizzcon.

    Thats funny. They are going to make people who have alts that are level 61-85 justify paying for a character upgrade at full price for professiosn's thats shameless in no way does that compensate for a character being boosted from lvl1 to 90 for x ammount of dollars. Obvious they are just being lazy and dont want to program a system to make a lvl based pricing sytem. Its not hard Blizzard take whatever you want for a character upgrade from a lvl 1 to 90 and then devide it by 90 = individual level cost and charge people that cost per level. If i have a level 75 and need another 15 levels its not hard 15 x individua level cost. Trying to make me pay to boost my alts using professions is ridiculous.

    Kind of a bummer here though as I like the box and will be ordering the physical CE since i enjoy the soundtrack, art book and mouse pad.
    Yep that just means blizzard is gonna love me big time. cause it means ill be buying prepurchase of digital deluxe edition and physical collectors edition.

    Ahh well

    The new season of pvp gear will be recolors meant for your opposing faction?... wat? I just... That's bull. If we get recolors, at least give us new recolors ffs.
  1. Flickyz's Avatar
    The mount looks quite but...not good enough to make me purchase the CE i think. Another year that i'll go with the Regular digital pre-purchase i guess.

    Yeah basicly. In all honesty, the proto-drake skeleton would have been better XD
