    Patch 4.3: Tier 13 Set Bonus Update
    Last night's PTR build changed a couple of Tier 13 Set Bonuses, it seems that they're more recent than the latest update of the official preview but you might want to wait for an official confirmation just in case! For a complete list of the T13 Set Bonuses, check out the official preview:

    Originally Posted by MMO-Champion

    • Feral, 4P -- Frenzied Regeneration also affects all raid and party members. This effect cannot be triggered if you have been in Bear Form for less than 15 sec. In addition, using Tiger's Fury will cause your next Ravage to cost no energy, not require stealth, and have no positioning requirement for 10 sec.

    • 2P -- Steady Shot and Cobra Shot generate double the amount of focus.
    • 4P -- Your Arcane Shot ability has a chance to grant 30% haste to you and your pet for 15 sec.

    • 2P -- Your Arcane Blast has a 100% chance and your Fireball, Frostfire Bolt, and Frostbolt spells have a 50% chance to grant Stolen Time, increasing your haste rating by 50 for 30 sec and stacking up to 10 times. When Arcane Power, Combustion, or Icy Veins expires, all stacks of Stolen Time are lost.
    • 4P -- Each stack of Stolen Time also reduces the cooldown of Arcane Power by 7 sec, Combustion by 3 sec, and Icy Veins by 6 sec.

    • Healer, 2P -- After using Power Infusion or Divine Hymn, the mana cost of your healing spells is reduced by 25% for [10|23] sec. (10 sec for Discipline, 23 for non-Discipline.)
    • Healer, 4P -- Your Power Word: Shield has a 10% chance to absorb 100% additional damage and increase the mana granted by Rapture by 100%, and the duration of your Holy Word abilities is increased by 33%.

    • Protection, 2P -- Your Revenge ability now also grants a physical absorption shield equal to 20% of the damage done by Revenge to its primary target.
    • Protection, 4P -- Your Shield Wall ability now grants 50% of its effect to all party and raid members.

    Void Storage Updated Costs
    Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
    I just recently got back from a meeting with Ghostcrawler and have an update to share regarding the prices for Void Storage. Instead of charging 1000g to unlock a Void Storage vault and 100g to deposit and withdraw items, we're looking at only requiring the following amounts for each transaction:

    Unlock - 100g
    Deposit - 25g
    Withdrawal - Free

    We agree with the suggestions we've seen that placing a higher fee on withdrawals would create a stronger deterrent for using Void Storage as a secondary bank. That said, we don't want players to find themselves in a situation where they are unable to retrieve an item simply because they don't have the gold. This is why we're leaning towards a more expensive deposit (to differentiate Void Storage from a normal bank) and allowing all withdrawals to be free. Please keep in mind that these prices may not hit the PTR and are, of course, subject to change before the release of 4.3.

    Rather than potentially having my statements in this thread come back to bite me at some point in the future, I'm going to risk being confusing or sounding dumb.

    In short, they agree that the process of mailing heirlooms around constantly is a little annoying. We'd prefer to try and work ourselves away from the method of mailing out BoA items in the future, like pets, mounts, etc. To that end, we have some design goals in mind that would improve this sort of item distribution system. And with those design goals have come some ideas for changing heirloom mechanics. This is sort of contrary to the idea I stated in this thread about just designing the system to allow players to mail their heirlooms all around their accounts without realm restrictions.

    That's all of the information I can share at the moment, but I feel like it's worth pointing out that the design philosophy I stated earlier isn't so set in stone -- we're reevaluating these types of systems as we look toward the future. I apologize if I've caused any confusion. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

    Lightwell as the trigger, really? *sigh*

    Well, void storage change should appease all the qq'ers about it being too expensive. And daily blink was meh...hardly got me to even crack a smile.

    I feel really bad for Zarhym. Having to eat your own foot is pretty horrible.

    The Daily Blink is so true...Killed LK 3 times back in Wrath. Got 5 (out of 6 items) Tainted Twigs of Nordrassil. Guess which guild didn't have a hunter or feral druid? >.>

    Looks like increased QQ activity on the PTR forums caused Ghostcrawler to release the Kraken!!!

    Also simple solution to the BoA problem. When you buy a BoA on a character, a copy is mailed to every other character on the account and appears in the mailbox of all newly created characters.

    Lightwell? Really? Why? I like and use Lightwell, but I don't think makes for an equivalent trigger to Power Infusion. EDIT: Hmm, seems to have been edited now. But still Divine Hymn vs Power Infusion? Really?

    Why the fuck is fire getting the weakest 4-set effect and arcane the strongest? Fire of all specs needs a buff. :/

    I'm much happier with the void storage costs now. But I will probably still keep my primary "look-alike" sets in my main bank where I can control the layout* & have free withdraws.

    * Thank you, Baggins & libPeriodicTable!

    love that change to void storage but 1000g as a one time cost is just fine with me.god i hope they do like suggested and flag us by account so we can buy across realm at a single heirloom vendor.

    While the original cost of void storage did bother I think it was a good move to lower to cost for those who are gold challenged

    Oh Daily Blink, you hit the nail on the head once again.
    Loot should be on some sort of rotating table so that the same crappy item can't drop every single fucking week.
