Update - The staff isn't final (and Lylirra is the most awesome Community Manager on earth for pointing out that we have no way to datamine it for the moment)

We did, however, hint at what the proc will be in our 4.2 preview: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/2685003

The great staff duplicates destructive magics, and also bestows upon its wielder the ability to transform into a member of the Blue Dragonflight.

Also, please keep in mind that some items on the PTR are still considered "works-in-progress," so certain aspects of their design -- including stats, on-use abilities, and appearance -- may change before the next patch goes live. :)

Oh! And just to clarify (since I saw this asked in another thread), Dragonwrath will not be BoE.

Patch 4.2 - PTR Build 14040
A new PTR build will be deployed on test realms today.

Tier 12 - Druid Model Preview
The Druid Tier 12 files are partially in this patch and I had enough to do a small preview.

  • The gloves are slightly bugged and will look a little weird.
  • The shoulders aren't in the game files yet.

    gonna love that for my fire mage! just wish we could see the proc already

    How big % of the player base will be able to use that staff ? 1 % ?

    Something maybe worth mentioning since the game just lost 5% of their subs in 3 monts ? And now they are focusing on keeping 1% happy with special questslines ?

    How about focusing questlines on each class ? To much work to think about 100% of the playerbase ? Seems so...

    ima so use it as healer to piss people off

    hmmm no special equip? :/

    What a terribly underwhelming legendary item. And I bet the casuals getting it are going to complain that they don't get to keep their gems as it upgrades.
  1. Xcuse's Avatar
    Yes hit was for granted, but why crit? Most of the classes prefer haste.

    Anyone else noticed the funny item level on it?

    edit: beaten

    And we can test the raids when?

    I'm guessing this legendary isn't finished. It would be the only legendary without some sort of interesting green text magic. No idea what to call that.

    Hit and Crit?! Why? Oh why?!

    Legendary. And the proc isn't there.

    no proc? how boring
  1. Ave07's Avatar
    The stats on that staff looks sweet!
  1. Geomatician's Avatar
    The proc is usually a mystery longer than the stats are.
