    Patch 3.3 - PTR Build 10747

    Updates
    07:30 AM CEST - The big update of the night is now available, the transcript of all the Icecrown Citadel sound files added with this patch (SPOILER! Do not click if you're not interested). Speculation time!

    Patch 3.3 - PTR Build 10747
    A new build has been deployed on PTRs, it looks like there are a ocuple of interesting changes here (but no Tier 10 set for Shamans ^^). Stay tuned!

    Icecrown Soundfiles Transcript
    In the following post you will find the transcript of all the sound files added to the game with this patch, some of them will reveal a few parts of the storyline and you shouldn't click it if you do not want to see spoilers.


    Companion Pets Models
    Perky Pug is the pet reward for running random dungeons through the new Dungeon System.


    Boss Models
    One more boss model in this build. This is an updated model for Lord Marrowgar.


    Mount Models
    We can assume that they are the models of the mounts introduced with this build ...

    • Invincible - Summons and dismisses the flying undead horse Invincible. This mount changes depending on your Riding skill and location.
    • Big Love Rocket - Summons and dismisses a rideable Big Love Rocket. This mount changes depending on your Riding skill and location.

    The Love Rocket will most likely be a rare drop from the Valentine's Day event and Invincible was Arthas' Mount before and after he became a Death Knight. The grave of his horse was in Balnir Farmstead in Tirisfal Glades. Last year during the Zombie Invasion world event, the grave was dug up randomly. (Thanks to War from Haomarush-US for the tip, you can also check the article on WoWWiki)

    Seriously, they couldn't have done this with 3.2.2? Woulda made HH so much easier.

    The question is, will there be a CAP on BG-earned arena points, or can you grind straight to 2600?

    tha woot? like.... now its only the rating that matters?

    we will see people with full best pvp set/weapon the first week... i dont want that :<

    hopefully they will add a arenapoint cap each week. if not, its ridicilous easy to get gear and no reason getting higher rating than 2,2k

    People will always complain. Even when you change the thing they're complaining about, they'll start to complain how everything was better before the change.

    arena points from bgs, hmz.. me lieks:3

    Might bring more people to bgs as well as keeping it objective orientated rather than mid-field zerg

    But than again I'm not especially "hardcore" and welcome such a change with open arms, even though I expect a lot of QQ regarding this from the slightly more serious parts of Azaroth^.^

      While it doesn't help Protection tanking, I'd mostly given up on that being used for us any more. Now we have four abilities that can't be cross-used. While Hand of Protection and Divine Shield certainly make sense (chaining bubbles would be loltastic) I half wish they'd remove Divine Protection from the list. Doesn't change from the "Can't use on yourself" much though, as far as Prot goes. For ret or holy, now it's DS to get out of OH SHI- moment number one, and hope the second doesn't kill you so you can full heal (after 2 minutes).

      EDIT:: Didn't notice the lack of Sacred Shield in the FoL HoT, at least as far as the language for the new IoL talent goes. If it really is baseline and not dependent on SS, that could be a nice little buff for spot raid healing.
    I stream many games! WoW, SC2, TF2, old SNES games and mods, and many more! Find my stream here! I also upload many of my stream VODs and many offline recordings (usually of SC2 casts) to my YouTube, found here!. Follow, subscribe, and thanks!
