    Patch 9.2 - Sylvanas VO, Set Bonus Changes, PTR Online, Sepulcher Encounter Journal

    Patch 9.2 PTR - Sylvanas VO
    Last night's PTR build added some spoilers from Sylvanas.





    Patch 9.2 PTR Server Online

    Thank you for your patience.

    Patch 9.2 PTR - Monk Set Bonus Changes

    • Mistweaver 4pc has a known issue which causes it to break Soothing Mist after drinking Thunder Focus Tea. This issue will be resolved in a future build.
    • Brewmaster 4pc will be redesigned in a future build. We’ve heard your feedback that you’d prefer a more focused bonus and will be acting on that desire.

    Patch 9.2 PTR - Shadow Priest Set Bonus Changes

    The Shadow bonuses, specifically the 2-piece bonus, are going to undergo some changes based off the feedback provided. To start, the 2-piece bonus will move its focus to Devouring Plague. As the only spender in the Shadow Priest rotation, and with the abundance of Insanity in the Shadow kit, it seems like a good hook to pivot to. The 4-piece will remain largely unchanged, however, Your Shadow will swap their current single target channel for one that favors AoE situations as well. Thank you for the feedback and we’re eager to hear your thoughts on the next iteration.

    Patch 9.2 PTR - Restoration Druid Set Bonus Changes

    Both the 2-piece and 4-piece bonuses for Restoration will be changed for a future build. Thank you for your feedback and we’ll continue to watch the ongoing conversations!

    Patch 9.2 PTR - Paladin Set Bonus Changes
    Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker)
    Hello Paladins,

    We’re looking into reports of the Protection Paladin 4 piece bonus not properly casting Judgment when it should be. The intent of this bonus is that it does cast a real Judgment when it triggers - debuff, Holy Power, and damage. Also worth noting, in a coming build, its internal cooldown will be increased from .1 seconds up to 1 second. This will help keep the bonus’s power from scaling out of control when tanking large numbers of enemies at once, while still rewarding the intuitive behavior of “trying to block as many things as you can.”

    With regards to the Retribution 2 piece, it is a bug that the set’s Seraphim overwrites an active Seraphim. The intent is that it will extend one, so the value of the 2 piece is consistent whether you are running Seraphim or not.

    Patch 9.2 Hotfixes - December 1

      • Fixed an issue where Pallid Command (Runecarving Power) would not trigger on hit and was instead triggering on cast.
      • Shadow
        • Fixed an issue where two Rattling Mages summoned from Pallid Command (Runecarving Power) could spawn unintentionally.
        • Fixed an issue where canceling the Pallid Command aura would not despawn the Rattling Mage.

    Sepulcher of the First Ones Encounter Journal
    The Sepulcher of the First Ones encounter journal was updated in this build, to include more boss descriptions and a more filled out description of the Jailer encounter.

    Soo, Sylvanas was "Mind-Controlled" is the redemption arc path they want to take? What a shit show... Why can't she just be evil and get her comeuppance?

    Because then they get rightfully memed for simply rehashing Garrosh writing. Though writing this is worse than if they did copy and paste and replace Garrosh for Sylvanas.

    You ever wonder if the employees are simply trashing the game to spite Activision?

    I mean, I know it isn't true but at least then something would make sense.

    uh can we just talk about how they rehash the same boss moves? Defile from The Jailer? Remorseless Winter from Anduin? That whole intermission phase being identical to the LK encounter?

    After re-releasing classic/TBC, they can't even come up with new boss moves?

    People still pay for this?

    The good thing is that the PTR is up, you can buy the tier sets and at the moment the PTR runs stable enough to test some things but some set bonuses don't work at all like the arms set.

    Oh look, no punishment.

    Yeah...

    I don't necessarily think that a character always needs to be punished for their sins, since that isn't the way in which the real world works nor do I think it should be how a fictional world works either.

    With that said...Sylvanas inflicted countless atrocities upon a great many people over a lengthy period of time. It doesn't matter if she is 'sorry' or 'wasn't in control'. There's some pretty good reasons for numerous characters to execute her. Be it through vengeance or to rid Azeroth of the possibility of Sylvanas somehow regressing back to her villainous self.

    Why are you even here? FFXIV does not have it's own forums?

    Lets be honest. Being forced to be a major character in Wow at this point IS a punishment.

    Where's the Jailers redemption arc? After this it's clear no one in warcraft should face any consequences for their actions, the only "bad" people in wow are people who don't forgive these characters immediately. "Genocide is good, being mad about genocide is bad" - blizzard

    Maybe Vol'jin will be returned to us when Blizzard remembers that trolls still have no beard customization

    For millenia, Zovaal manipulated forces throughout the universe to place him in this position of power. At this final step, the heroes of Azeroth rally to fight a cosmic being who has never known defeat.


    Surely Zovaal knew defeat when he was chained up in the maw by the rest of the pantheon of death and was replaced as arbiter

    remember when the blizz writers said sylvanas was going to make garrosh look like an amateur? when are we going to get that sylvanas? so far, i vastly prefer garrosh.
