    Patch 4.2.2 on Test Realms soon

    Patch 4.2.2 on Test Realms soon?
    A wild Patch 4.2.2 appeared on the test realms download servers a couple of hours ago, and it looks like we'll go through a bugfix patch before we get to see Patch 4.3.

    Important - Most of these changes are nothing more than tooltip fixes to reflect Patch 4.2 Hotfixes already active on live servers. I'm mostly documenting them for the sake of it.

    Apparatus of Khaz'goroth (H) now increases critical strike, haste, or mastery rating by 508, up from 306. Shouldn't it be 575 for the H version?

    Glad to see the trinkets getting buffed. Some people still proffered trinkets from T11. Heroic Heart of Rage for example is still the third best trinket in the game for retris.

    This is likely preliminary notes for a PTR patch, rolling out fixes for current content before making changes.

    I nearly choked on my soda when I read 4.3 on Test Realms Soon.

    These look like datamined changes, not official notes. Note that "originally posted by MMO-champion" at the top. I agree that if all it does is fix tooltips, it's unclear why it would go to the PTR in the first place.

    Looks like a huge nerf to the BS sword.

    And finally the rag shoulders are now actually worthy to use as a tank.

    the apparatus changes are just tooltip updates btw, there were supposed to provide 508/575 rating but the tooltip was showing it as lower so this isnt a buff its jsut tooltip changes
