    Patch 4.2.2 Official Notes

    Update - Added today's blue posts, not much happening on the WoW side but hopefully things will get better now that september is here and 4.2.2 is live!

    Patch 4.2.2 Official Notes
    As I mentioned earlier this week, Patch 4.2.2 is now live and Blizzard posted the final version of the patch notes on the official site. This is mostly a hotfix consolidation patch without any game balance changes, see the datamined changes for details.

    Technical
    • Players using multiple accounts should now be available to be invited to a Real ID Party.

    I also might have made it sound like the older Battlegrounds will never change again. That's not what I meant to get across. We've redone AV several times throughout the years, and it may see more changes in the future. I just wanted to note that the emphasis is going to be shifted a bit, that's all.

    I believe the word you're looking for is "stalling".

    Yeah because a larger hitbox makes the fight faceroll right? /facepalm

    If this is true, I'm a very happy healer.

    What about Warlock pet bar constantly disappearing after entering the instances? They did PTR testing for this? >.< Idiots.

    So why did they need a PTR for this 5 (?) bugfixes....

    They should have tested 4.3 during this period of testing 4.2.2

    I don't get it.

    Does it matter? Does it really puzzle you that much? 4.3 will be on ptr when its ready, not when you want it to be there.

    It's pretty much all up to the developers. They have a word with QA to bring up the PTR so they can throw the patch to the general player for generalized public testing.

    They have their own QA team that can test things just fine but unfortunately they can't always replicate the conditions you get in the Live environment simply because of economies of scale - a possible test bed of over 10 million players will always trump w/e size of QA testing team Blizzard can field.
