PTR Development Notes - Build 23753

This week’s PTR update contains mostly tuning changes, which include some of the mechanisms around the Broken Shore, but also a large round of adjustments to Legendary items. These adjustments are part of our overall goal to bring Legendaries more in line with each other in terms of value, particularly in how their benefits apply to your primary role (tanking, DPS, or healing).

This first round of adjustments is not comprehensive - in fact, we’ve already made some additional changes since this build was put together, and we expect tuning to continue as part of an ongoing process. Still, we’d greatly appreciate your feedback on these changes, as well as on any other Legendaries that are still in need of tuning. We’ve created a separate thread here with more details on exactly what changes have been made.

Thanks, and happy testing!

As always, I'll leave this thread open for discussion so long as conversations remain civil and adhere to forum guidelines.

Thanks for your patience everyone!

    Lava Lash deals 50% (was 30%) increased damage while your weapons are enhanced by both Flametongue and Frostbrand. - this still does not fix the problem with this legendary... the fact hailstorm is crap now...
  1. BananaHandsB's Avatar
    Fantastic changes. I will never understand how the problem with pure utility legendaries was not recognized by the devs immediately during design and how it took so long to correct, but great changes nonetheless. Such a simple fix.

    And enhancer wrists are still completly useless.

    Was the SP bracer nerf really necessary?

    Enhancement
    Akainu’s Absolute Justice
    Lava Lash deals 50% (was 30%) increased damage while your weapons are enhanced by both Flametongue and Frostbrand.
    Blizzard...

    Just take off Frostbrand, leave it at 30% and you fixed the problem. Why is this so god damn difficult?

    Good changes overall. Seems odd that the Shadow Priest ring wasn't included or reworked.

    - gg, still remains a stat stick.

    Pillars of the Dark Portal still suck.

    The devs still refuse to fix this crap system. Trade in these crap legendaries for tokens that I can trade in for ones that I actually want.

    It pisses me off that those legs are as bad as they are. I got them as my first legendary on my lock yesterday. I was not happy.

    Disc ring is still incredibly bad. Overall changes are alright. Still, making the bis feral ring even better is hilarious

    If you think the bracers are bad, you are retarded. Lowest CD of any cheat death that puts out actually decent throughput if you use it correctly...

    Secondly, they nerfed the shield amount, but slapped more stats on the thing. It's probably more of a buff than a nerf.

    People like you give me cancer.

    easy because they underestimate players, and to an extent the value of legendaries, as most players look at absolute values, so which will give me the biggest dps/healing/tanking boost and undervaluing things like utility and surviveablilty (for non tanks) boosts, I mean look how hard it can be to get some players to use defensive abilities that are part of their class to make other players jobs easier in dungeons/raids, compound that with several specs having legendaries that massive increase their performance/output to reinforce the idea that if a legendary is not a dps boost it's bad
