PTR Development Notes - Build 23708

This week’s update contains more tuning and tweaks for several of the new features and content pieces in 7.2.

We’ve taken an initial pass at setting the rate of income for Nethershards, as well as the cost of items they can be used to purchase. While we’re planning to do some additional tuning next week once we’ve got a better handle on how it’s playing out, these numbers should be much more in-line with where we want things to be.

There are several tweaks to Artifact Traits, and a few adjustments to a couple Legendaries as part of our overall goal to bring them more in line with each other in value. We’ve also removed the mechanic that allowed Relics to have a second, randomized Artifact Trait bonus; we’ve shared more info on that change here.

We’re also planning to do another focused test on our new server technology this week. Tomorrow (Wednesday, March 8) at 3 PM Pacific we’ll be spawning in Withered J’im in Aszuna and asking as many players as possible to go fight him. We need to put as much strain on our servers as possible, so if you have the time, please join us! We'll have a blog post later today with more details.

This week will have another Play with the Blues event, this time focused around Arena Skirmishes. On Thursday, from 3 PM to 5 PM Pacific time, we’ll be on the PTR queuing for Skirmishes. We’re looking forward to seeing you in the Arena, and getting your feedback on how they’re playing.

Thanks again, and happy testing!

    It feels like they're just doing nothing interesting with Havoc... Like whatsoever. Hell even its animations could do with some polish, most attack trails just looks like green fart dust instead of actual fel.

    Hey chaud the hotfixes you posted are the ones from last week, not the ones from this week.

    Looking forward to another all-green raid. (bleh).

    Have people been in ToS yet? Can we get any confirmation of non-green colors?
  1. Beefkow's Avatar
    It's offical.

    Unholy dks have to pick bursting sores according to blizzard.

    Talents providing choices is just a myth, still yet to be debunked.

    Those attack beacons are interesting. I wonder if there is going to be any in-game lore justification for summoning a legion invasion on these poor NPCs?

    I wonder when that patch reveal.

    I hopped on the PTR and I think there's some poor wording going on with this:

    Earth Elemental Calls forth a Greater Earth Elemental to protect you and your allies for 60 sec until cancelled. Shaman - Elemental Spec. 30 yd range. Instant. 5 min cooldown.
    The 60 second timer still exists, but we get the added ability to cancel/kill both the Fire and Earth elementals. So it should read:

    Earth Elemental Calls forth a Greater Earth Elemental to protect you and your allies for 60 sec or until cancelled. Shaman - Elemental Spec. 30 yd range. Instant. 5 min cooldown.

    It's gotta be really soon. If I had to guess, I'd guess a month or less.
