UPDATE: Patch 8.2 PTR - Glimmer of Light Slight Nerf

BlizzCon 2019 Commemorative Collectibles - Presale Ends June 19

Patch 8.2 PTR - Holy Paladin Glimmer of Light Minor Nerf

Revisiting the original post–as it suggested, we’re going to pull back a small amount on Glimmer of Light healing, but not enough to upset its status as the “in” build. Numbers to be determined for an upcoming PTR build, but probably around a 10-12% reduction to the Glimmer proc only.

Patch 8.2 PTR - Frost Death Knight Changes

As people have noticed, a few changes on PTR, mainly intended to respond to concerns about the level 100 row:


This is still a net buff to Breath in the patch, due to the addition of the 4 Runes. But the damage buff to Frost Strike primarily improves the other two talents. Icecap/Icy Citadel builds should also be a good bit more competitive.

Patch 8.2 PTR - Arms Warrior Changes

Pretty straightforward–the Deep Wounds buff is largest to boost the value of Mastery somewhat.

    There are no Classic news. Anything and everything about that game was known 15 years ago.

    they work these little changes in as an afterthought not long before the patch comes out, kinda shows their priority overall. I'm glad to see any changes though and hope it helps.

    You don't have ANY alts? 1 char for 15 years is crazy! Kinda applaud you for your dedication but damn, I'd be so bored playing the same character day in and day out.

    @Raelyn I have alts which sit around low levels. I managed to level a shaman to 110 but really I might as well delete it. Nothing entices me more than my Tauren warrior. I fell in love with their voices in warcraft 3, when they shout ; Bring it on! and then slam their tree trunks in to some poor alliance footmen's face. good times.

    Want to read the reasoning behind the Frost Mage nerf.

    What are you talking about? Do some tests on ptr and you'll see frost mage is op with their new essences stuff. The nerf was needed.

    Deep Wounds in itself is a terrible mechanic.

    It was added to reduce the burst of Arms Warriors while Blizzard at the same time gave every other class improved burst >_>

    imagine still doing % base buffs/nerfs when your class design is utterly screwed OMEGA

    the best one was the "buff" to rend, who the fuck talent that garbage talent? seriously delete it or make it baseline, is worthless as a talent

    That's not the point.

    Any and all Classic news gets the hype rolling.

    Remove all the new crap they added back in mop or wod I can't remember. Bring back the *OLD* arms warrior design.

    At least you're willing to admit that its a hype train. That train will eventually crash

    Let's see, all specs of mages and hunters are bottom tier. Unholy DK is also struggling.

    Blizz response: Let's work on buffing Arms Warrior and Frost DK!

    /facepalm
