    Don'T really see the point of a PTR build for an Occuthar achievement and a load of tooltip fixes...

    No wonder the download turned Red instead of Yellow after I restarted. I was like wasn't this on Yellow before I tried to login? Didn't noticed it started on 4.2.2

    That would be the reason im curious to see what this one has in store. I can't really believe all they would do is that :/

    There's now a Portuguese option language in the PTR Launcher. If you select it and press OK, the launcher becomes full of TRANSLATE ME.

    Rets are fine. Give them more dmg and they will dominate in PVP again and then will be nerfed back. PVE'ers be happy that some of the BEST guilds are still using Rets on heroic Ragnaros, check Flash from Vodka, for example.

    Probably a PTR for bugfixes plus anything new they're planning on doing/adding for Brewfest/Hallow's End this year. If there's anything client side they need for those events they might want to get it dealt with before they move onto the 4.3 PTR series.

    Thank the lord for that Raid frame fix. I was getting really, really tired of them popping up every single time I join and raid or BG.

    The PTR testing is most likely for the guild rename features that we're shown in the last news post. Or the BR language pack 'testing'.

    Anyways, This still keeps happening, Anyone know of a way to get the PTR launcher to reconfirm whats needed to download? This doesn't seem right. Can't download 7.8 gigs worth of data on a unstable, 100 kB/s wifi connection... ;_;

    EDIT: Found a way to reduce the amount needed to download to about 1.8 gigs... only works though if your PTR and retail build are the SAME exact build number I think. Gotta rename the data folder in the PTR folder temporarily till you're done. Than, copy your /Data/ folder over to the PTR installation (which should have 'Data_OLD' folder or something. Give it ~5 mins to copy the ~23 gigs, then copy the contents of the old realmlist.wtf in the Data_OLD folder into the new Data folder (so that you can connect and patch with the PTR), than delete launcher.wtf in your WTF folder. If it works, relaunching the launcher will have it down to ~2 gigs worth you need to download. (which is still high i think, but better than it was for me). By now, you can delete your old Data folder if you wish.

    class balance for the love of god. based on my exp limited to 2 firelands hc 25 kills.. pve balance is decent not in need in much attention except maybe for arms taste for blood bugged gcd talent. pvp wise this game needs some serious attention.

    I am hoping to get a revamped AQ20 with this one, anything alternative to ZA/ZG, yet has greater availability(LFD tool) compared to raids would be nice
