Starting promptly at 3:00 p.m. PDT, Blizzard employees will be testing our 15th Anniversary rendition of AV on the PTR, and you can join us for some strife in the Field of Strife.

Please log into the PTR by that time and then open your Group Finder (default hotkey: i) and switch to the Player vs. Player tab. You’ll see Alterac Valley waiting for you to join.

Afterward, please return to this thread with your feedback.

Thank you!

    20.5% AP CP? I'll take it.

    To bad/Good thing that's pretty much guaranteed to be a data error.

    Wait didn’t they just say they were buffing Destro Locks? Cuz those are both literal nerfs.

    is that an unholy nerf?

    I feel like the "decreases" is a typo?? Why would choosing a spec make spell's base damage go down?

    Its a "type" of buff for Deeper Strat and "spammable" FoK" it needs further testing, because it could end like Shuriken storm and being nerf later. Probably they want the Azerite trait to be usefull, because right now... just go Outlaw for AoE.

    Sadly there is nothing for Sub spec

    Does this mean you are no longer gaining combo points from fok ?

    It's not, it's an increase to the damage aura decrease

    If they legitimately nerf Unholy I'll declare Blizzard insane. Why? Seriously why?

    Its 1% nerf tho, from negative 2% to negative 3%. So taken in concern last round of buffs this brings Unholy to about 4% buff instead of 5% since negative aura increased from 2% to 3%.
