    Re: Patch 3.3 - PTR Build 10571

    I knew it, the Death Knight helm looks very similar to the Lich King's helm. Although, the spikes on the top are larger and the helmet has green eyes. But I'm guessing that one of the other armor models has blue eyes for the helm.
    Undercity Champion says: "I punched a penguin on my way in here."
    Argent Confessor Paletress says: "Oh, my. Do you feel remorseful, at least?"
    Undercity Champion says: "Nah, not really. I just wanted to see the look on your face."

    That DK helm looks pretty badass, as does the new Lich.

    I wish I had some comment to make on the Class changes but I'm not big on any of those classes.

    Mr. Chilly is no longer named Oswald and got his old name back.
    Dear developers,

    please nerf Rock, it's too overpowered. Paper is fine, however.

    This is the first patch since tbc where i actually like all the tier sets. At least those we know. Awesome helmet.

    And nice to see shadow buffs. Oh and, can we have a patch that actually doesn't buff hunters? Thanks.

    What a beastly helm! I haven't been examing the new scourge strike that much, but I think it'll generally work out to be better damage.

    Very excite!

    Re: Patch 3.3 - PTR Build 10571

    Glyph of Quick Decay - Your haste now reduces the time between periodic damage ticks of your Corruption spell.
    Should be moved from DK glyphs to warlocks glyphs

    Re: Patch 3.3 - PTR Build 10571

    Curses! I was so looking forward to a penguin named Oswald. Oh well...

    Re: Patch 3.3 - PTR Build 10571

    That is some amazingly great looking armor. This is going to actually make me want to raid with my Death Knight again which I wasn't expecting!

    Re: Patch 3.3 - PTR Build 10571

    Glyph of Eternal Water - Your Summon Water Elemental now lasts indefinitely, but your Water Elemental can no longer cast Freeze.

    I haven't played WoW in a while, but how much damage does the Water Elemental deal now?

    Re: Patch 3.3 - PTR Build 10571

    That helm looks great!

    Re: Patch 3.3 - PTR Build 10571

    wow at mage changes
    scorch change makes scorching not suck as much as it does now

    frost changes might make frost viable for pve

    and just O_O at shadow changes, awesome
    Awesome since 1986 - Armory

    Re: Patch 3.3 - PTR Build 10571

    Clearly, Blizz doesn't care about shadow and will never buff them.

    ...oh wait!

  18. #18

    Re: Patch 3.3 - PTR Build 10571

    The DK helm looks very good, want to see with the other color themes, since that one is the ugliest of the color themes.

    I don't play a Priest, but it looks Blizz is making an attempt to buff the Shadow Priests.

    Gift of Earthmoon changed hum, 10% less on LB, Rejuv and WG, but 10% more on Nourish and Regrowth, seems like a nice trade, since they are changing the Rejuv to scale with Haste.

    Re: Patch 3.3 - PTR Build 10571

    i wish the DK armor was the Warrior armor
    Azeroth and Kalimdor and Northrend and Outland
