    [Question] Patch notes vs. Implemented

    Hello everyone!

    I was checking out the patch notes (http://www.mmo-champion.com/index.php?page=818) and I read the message saying that some abilities and changes will be implemented at a later time, due to balancing level 70 versus level 80.

    My question was, Mind Melt is the replacement talent for Shadow Resilience, and allows 2%/4% extra crit on our spells that can crit. However, all the patch notes are silent on this, and even show it as the old "reduces physical damage taken by 2%/4%".

    Is anyone able to check on the live 3.0.2 version whether this spot has Mind Melt or Shadow Resilience?

    I am at work at the moment so I cannot check it, but I would like to know this as I prepare the talents I will take this evening. ^_^

    Thanks for the help!

    Dont trust the patch notes.

    for every PTR build. the exact set of patch notes has been used continuosly for paladins.
    i havent read into anything else, but it would seem that blizzard are too lazy to update them, even for the final release

    So while the notes may be complete and/or correct, dont trust em

    theres different patch notes out there at the moment, for example:

    http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/patchnotes/ are not the same as


    and http://www.mmo-champion.com/index.php?page=818 is the same as the above.

    you can VERY safely assume at least the priest bit is not completely right, as it still includes
    Force of Will (Discipline): This talent now increases your spell damage by a flat amount, rather than increasing your spells by a %. (Now increases school %, rather than selected spells damage %). In other words, your spell damage gained from this talent is now reflected on your character sheet, rather than the skill tool-tips.
    a talent which got the shaft, enlightenment took its place, and the top link can be VERY safely assumed to not be correct EITHER as it still includes
    New Talent: Twin Disciplines (Discipline) - Increases your damage and healing by 1/2/3/4/5%.
    a talent thats been changed a couple of times since that incarnation.

    so all in all.. we dont have the slightest clue what the final patch notes are, wish for the best? ???

    Thanks for the info.

    I was afraid that the answer would be inconclusive, so I probably will have to dig through my skills and talents once I get home to make a list of what really changed and how much of what was communicated is really going to be implemented.

    Not really a big issue, just a bit inconvenient.

    with any luck, by the time you (me) get home there will be a list of what was really implemented, and my patch download will have finished ;D
