Today’s 7.2.5 PTR update has quite a few updates and additions that are ready for testing and feedback!

For starters, we’ve activated the Auction House Dance Party event. You can participate by heading to the Auction House nearest to the front gates in either Stormwind or Orgrimmar. Please let us know what you think!

We’re also keeping the Trial of Style active for additional testing this week. In fact, we’ll be hosting a “Pose with the Blues” event on Friday from 2pm to 4pm Pacific time (5pm to 7pm Eastern). If you’re available, we’d love to have you stop by and show off your transmog collection.

If you’ve completed the Pet Battle Dungeon in Wailing Caverns, you’ll see a new Pet Battle Dungeon available for testing today in the Deadmines. Head to Breanni in Dalaran to get started.

There’s also a new round of class changes ready for testing in this build, with a particular focus on Brewmaster Monks, Discipline Priests, Enhancement Shaman, Outlaw and Subtlety Rogues, Arms Warriors, and all Warlock specs, plus a few tweaks here and there for some other specs. We’re rapidly iterating on these changes (and some of them are already outdated compared to our internal test environments) but please give us any feedback you can on what you see.

We’d also like to mention a couple of other pieces of content that aren’t quite ready for rigorous testing but you’ll see in this build. Black Temple Timewalking will continue to be available to test, but please be aware that it hasn’t gone through difficulty tuning yet. Feel free to give it a try, but keep that in mind. Additionally, you’ll start to see some bits and pieces of another new event: The Great Gnomeregan Race. We’ll share more details on what that is once it’s in a complete enough state to start testing.

With this week’s build, we’re also going to start creating dedicated feedback threads for a few topics. Keep an eye out for those. Thanks, and happy testing!

New Events

The Trial of Style
  • The Blood Elves have teamed up with the Ethereal transmogrifiers to put on a grand Azerothian fashion tournament. Compete against five other players to determine who’s the best dresser. On the public test realm, speak to Flaskataur in Dalaran to queue for this extraordinary runway experience.

Auction House Dance Studio
  • The main auction houses in Orgrimmar and Stormwind have been cleaned out and turned into dance parties for the day. Crowd on in and show some faction pride!

The Great Gnomeregan Race
  • More details coming soon

Classes

Demon Hunter (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator / Artifact Calculator / PvP Talent Calculator)
  • Prepared now generates 100 Fury over 10 seconds (was 40 Fury over 5 seconds).

Mage (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator / Artifact Calculator / PvP Talent Calculator)

Monk (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator / Artifact Calculator / PvP Talent Calculator)
  • Breath of Fire now has a 20 second cooldown (was 15 seconds).
  • Rushing Jade Wind's duration has been increased by 50% for Brewmasters only.
  • Spitfire chance reduced to 20% (was 30%).

Paladin (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator / Artifact Calculator / PvP Talent Calculator)
  • Light's Hammer cost reduced by 20%.

Priest (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator / Artifact Calculator / PvP Talent Calculator)
  • Discipline
    • Developers’ notes: One of our goals for 7.2.5 is to give Plea and Power Word: Radiance a more straightforward purpose and allow for more opportunities to use both based on the situation. Radiance allowing an immediate Penance heal on more targets more quickly should help with some of Discipline’s difficulties in responding promptly to damage. Plea being an always-available Atonement applicator without having to constantly evaluate the mana cost should help with overall flow of the spec.
    • Divine Star cost reduced by 20%.
    • Halo cost reduced by 25%.
    • Plea now costs 2% of base mana (was 0.36%), but no longer costs additional mana per Atonement.
    • Power Word: Barrier mana cost reduced by 37% and radius increased by 23%.
    • Power Word: Radiance now has 2 charges and a 15 second recharge.
    • Power Word: Radiance now applies 5 Atonements (was 3) at 50% normal duration (was 100%).
    • Smite damage increased by 11%.
    • Smite now costs 0.5% of base mana (was 1.0%).
    • The Penitent’s effects have been made baseline.
    • The absorb effect from Smite (Rank 2) has been removed and reworked into a new Level 15 talent: Sanctuary. The amount absorbed has been increased by 33%.
  • Holy

Rogue (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator / Artifact Calculator / PvP Talent Calculator)
  • Outlaw
    • All damage increased by 8%.
    • Ambush damage increased by 33%.
    • Curse of the Dreadblades (Artifact trait) now works with Ambush.
    • Shark Infested Waters now increases Critical strike chance by 20% (was 25%).
    • Slice and Dice’s Attack speed increase reduced to 80%.
    • Slice and Dice increases Energy regeneration by 20% (was 15%).
  • Subtlety
    • Deep Shadows now causes all damage you deal to be increased by 35%.
    • Master of Shadows moved to level 90 row.

    • Etched in Shadow (Artifact trait) is now named Weak Point: Increases the critical strike damage of Backstab and Shadowstrike by 5% per point.
    • Gloomblade damage increased by 33%.
    • Master of Shadows moved to level 90 row: Gain 40 Energy over 4 seconds when you enter Stealth or Shadow Dance.
      • Developers’ notes: Pooling energy going into a Shadow Dance has long been the way to play Subtlety, and we’d like to bring that back. This design still gives you more energy for a Shadow Dance, but in a way that allows the Rogue to fully utilize pooling gameplay.
    • Nightblade now increases your damage dealt to the target by 15%, with damage over time component reduced by 35%.
      • Developers’ notes: Further pushes Subtlety away from maintaining Nightblade on all secondary targets and instead into focusing their damage into 1 target. Additionally, gives Nightblade a mechanical interaction with the rest of the core rotation that fulfills the “setup” feel of Subtlety.
    • Premeditation moved to level 100 row.
    • Relentless Strikes now causes your finishing moves to generate 5 Energy per combo point spent.
      • Developers’ notes: This improves Energy capping situations and an issue where with Deeper Stratagem (talent), you would sometimes get 80 Energy back on a 6-combo point finisher.
    • Shadow’s Whisper (Artifact trait) now increases Energy gain by 8 (was 5).
    • Shuriken Combo is a new passive talent available at level 70: Shuriken Storm increases the damage of your next Eviscerate by 10% for each enemy hit beyond the first. Stacks up to 5 times.
      • Developers’ notes: This aims to remove maintaining Nightblade on every target from your AOE rotation on 4+ targets. Instead, Subtlety will deal increased damage during AOE by focusing it into one target.
    • Sprint now allows Subtlety Rogues to run over water. This is only possible when running forward.

Shaman (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator / Artifact Calculator / PvP Talent Calculator)
  • Enhancement
    • Rockbiter damage increased by 77% and Maelstrom generation increased to 25 (was 20).

    • Hand of Gul’dan impact damage increased by 180%.
    • Infernal Furnace (Artifact trait) damage increase per point reduced to 8% (was 10%).
  • Destruction
    • Developers’ Notes: Soul Shards are now divided into 10 Soul Shard Fragments for Destruction Warlocks, in order to provide more reliable, granular Soul Shard generation, prevent random overcapping of resources, rein in Soul Shard generation slightly, and reduce the number of Chaos Bolts being cast.
    • All damage increased by 10%.
    • Cataclysm cooldown reduced to 30 seconds (was 45 seconds), cast time reduced to 2.5 seconds (was 3 seconds), and damage reduced by 25%.
    • Channel Demonfire damage increased by 56%, and cooldown increased to 25 seconds (was 15 seconds).

Patch 7.2.5 - Brewmaster Changes
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
Today's PTR build has Blackout Strike reduced to a 12sec cooldown, so that two Tiger Palms are enough to reset it, speeding things up noticeably. Please give that a try (in a variety of talent builds if you can), and let us know how that feels.

EDIT: Oh, and today's build also has Rushing Jade Wind's duration increased to 9sec/Haste for Brewmasters, making it more flexible on your GCDs, and less swingy on GCD utilization.

And continuing the curtain backpulling (Is that a word? It is now.), here's where our thoughts are right now:

We hear the feedback that the Tiger Palm -> Blackout Strike CDR mechanic isn't adding interactivity so much as restrictiveness and complexity, even if we get the tuning of it right. I last mentioned that we were considering a design that required (1 Tiger Palm + 1 Anything) between Blackout Strikes. That's still an option, but we're actually planning to try (2 Anything), between Blackout Strikes for next build, i.e. back to just a plain 3sec CD but unaffected by Haste.

We're also considering letting Blackout Combo reduce the CD of Blackout Strike even further, along with buffing the other talents on that row to compensate. There's some hesitance with that, due to how much power that would put in that row, but it's not totally unreasonable.

EDIT: Oh, and we're also leaning towards Spitfire replacing Chi Wave instead of Chi Burst. If you love Chi Wave, please speak up now!

Again, none of this is set in stone at all, and your feedback is really helping; keep up the focused and constructive posts!

    On a side note in regards to the Notes. At what point did blizz think it was ok to remove boulderfist from enhance? Pretty sure the range on that melee attack was the only reason I was able to catch ANY class was hitting frostbrand and boulderfist. If they don't add range to rockbiter they are ultimately destroying enhance PVP completely.

    I think it's you who don't understand here, your scenario isn't even touched these nerfs, aff isn't even good at multidotting anymore, and I don't care about wow pvp at all.

    Still nothing regarding shadow.. :rollseyes:

    And those holy changes make no sense. 1. CoH is never used and probably wont be even with this buff, secondly, why would you need to nerf divinity (AGAIN) to compensate. CoH has literally no interaction with divinity other than benefitting from the % increase like all other heals. CoH casts means less holy words, so what's the point in nerfing divinity?

    If it keeps heading in this direction its going to end up a dead talent. It's already looking pretty fucking grim.

    Guess you could go to another city..

    Any way you turn it, it's still a dumb and unnecessary feature. And did anyone really ask for this, or did they just misunderstand what people really wanted when they said "dance studio"?

    Wow, how can anyone be so salty about a class they don't even comprehend? Your post just demonstrated you're just an ignorant. And affli dots are weak af without malefic grasp.

    Affliction main here since the beginning of BC. Been my only main for over a decade.

    I am 100% in favor of the MG nerf.

    MG needed to be brought down.

    That talent alone made us feel way too much like a shadow priest. Affliction has never been about draining like a shadow priest until the last couple of expansions... and even in WoD we had to maintain our dots on multiple targets... the drain was just the filler.

    Now its even worse this expansion; and specifically in 7.2; where in order to keep up with the group in DPS, you essentially have to drop the "muti-target, dot maintenance" play style that we have had been used to for years until WoD.

    The up time that you need for MG is now overshadowing the core play style of dot management that affliction has always been known for. Now, if im not sitting in one spot and turreting the boss with MG and a 3 or 4 stack of UA; my output is shit.

    Maybe now, we can get back to feeling like Affliction warlocks and not shadow priests.

    A lot of Afflocks are crying over this nerf; but I welcome it. I wish it could go live today.

    While I agree with this, not giving us anything to compensate for the damage lost is not a trade I'd want

    so the glaives arent even a drop? Its a reward from achi?

    Not that I mind, but that means every tom dick and harry will get a set on their DH, I really, really hope they do the same with the rest of the legenderies even if we have to wait a while. I main a DH, but this totally isn't fair on the rest of the community who can equip the glaives / other legends,
