Patch 4.3 PTR patch notes updated for Oct. 18

The patch notes for the patch 4.3 PTR have gone through a slight overhaul today. While the changes are not many, they're pretty significant. Some of these changes have already been noted by players, like Hurricane's new visual. Others are more of a surprise.
  • All healing debuffs are now up to 25%, from the current 10% on live. This includes the hunter pet abilities Monstrous Bite and Widow's Venom, rogue Wound Poison, and warrior Mortal Strike and Furious Attacks.
  • Paladins will now see Beacon of Light triggered by Holy Shock, Flash of Light, Divine Light and Light of Dawn at 50% transference and Holy Light at 100% transference. It does not transfer Holy Radiance, Protector of the Innocent or other sources of healing.
  • Added a feature to interact with NPCs, game objects (mailbox, mining nodes, etc.), and corpses on left-click as well as right-click. There is now an option under Interface:Controls to turn this feature off.
  • Finally, Dragonwrath users will notice that the chance for its effect to go off has been reduced.
Not sure why Blizzard decided to buff healing debuffs at this stage of the expansion or why it reduced Dragonwrath's chance to proc. Am interested in seeing if arms PVP feels better to me now, I will admit.

Brace yourselves for what could be some of most exciting updates to the game recently with patch 4.3. Review the official patch notes, and then dig into what's ahead: new item storage options, cross-realm raiding, cosmetic armor skinning and your chance to battle the mighty Deathwing -- from astride his back!
