Patch 7.2.5 PTR - Build 24076
A new build is on the way to the PTR!

This week’s update doesn’t bring any major additions to the PTR, but does have a few changes worth calling out.

We’re enabling the Kirin Tor Tavern Crawl for some additional testing. While it’s not exactly new to 7.2.5, we’d still appreciate any testing we can get, as we want to be sure we’ve ironed out all the bugs. There should be an NPC in Dalaran who can direct you to the right place.

We’ll also be turning on Black Temple Timewalking again. As you’ve probably surmised, last week’s test had to be cancelled at the last minute, so this time we’re just going to open it up for testing on Friday and leave it open all weekend. We’ve done some difficulty tuning since the last time it was available, so please give it a look and let us know how it goes!

The Chromie scenario will not be available for testing this week; as we’ve been playing through it ourselves, we’ve been finding opportunities to add some additional polish and shine in a few areas, and want to have all of that in place before opening it up for feedback. We really like the direction it’s headed, though, and hope you will too once we’ve got it ready for PTR in the next week or so.

There’s another round of class changes in this build, including some fairly significant changes to Vengeance Demon Hunter meant to help clean up the rotation a little bit (particularly in regards to Soul Fragments). Not all of these changes will be immediately apparent from reading tooltips, so we’d love to hear your thoughts after spending some time with them in-game.

You’ll also see a few changes to set bonuses in this build. We’re continuing to make tuning adjustments to Tier 20 set bonuses, and a few of those will be in this build. You may also see a number of changes to Tier 19 (Nighthold) set bonuses. This is to ensure that the Tier 20 pieces are a reasonable upgrade over Tier 19, without having to make the Tier 20 bonuses blatantly overpowered. Please keep in mind when testing these changes that we’re still working on overall class balance for 7.2.5.

Thanks, and happy testing!

    It's lazy as hell. Instead of putting a little bit of effort into making T20 sets good they're just making T19 sets bad. How is that good?

    Being fair, if it was left as is, the legendary ring would become op in blizzards eyes and would be gutted like the helm was. Not saying the current set bonus is better, but as someone that only just got the ring this afternoon, I'd rather not see our best legendary nerfed for a stupid reason like before.

    lol I guess farming hks using patient sniper and piercing shot has finally been nurfed.

    Goodbye 1mill crits for mm :,(

    lol ikr I noticed my assasin set being nurfed and I had to really consider how sub ~3% of my damage would need to be nurfed.

    YES! Heirlooms which teaches new characters the flight paths!! I've been giving feedback on it for ages! Granted, I thought it would be tied to getting the Explorer achievement in each continent...

    But making t19 sets worse does not make the completely underwhelming t20 sets better. THAT is and has been the problem from the start.

    From what I've seen most classes are saying the t20 sets are a total miss on blizzards part. I can't help but feel this is only a response to that negative criticism instead of blizzard being concerned about balance, which is a convenient excuse.

    I feel like the new Shadow Priest T20 bonuses are OP. I liked the previous ones better.

    Ehm... did you notice the price? 15.000 for one of those? No thanks i prefer to run :P

    Edit: Since the legendary rings grant a passive talent. I suspect that the Shadow will be Fortress of the Mind 80% or Void Ray 20%.

    That's the resell value, probably will cost more. And considering inflation, I'd say worth it!
