World of Raids
is reporting lots of small fixes in the latest PTR build of Patch 2.3
, but with a few surprises as well. There's a good amount of class changes along with some Badge of Justice loot tweaks and a new Hunter volley animation seen above.
Highlights for the class changes include: Feral Druids getting their single target and group based taunts buffed by their +hit rating; Rogues getting Hemorrhage buff as well as a redesign of Shadowstep; and Priests receiving the Focused Will buff as well as Druids getting the Natural Perfection buff even buffer than we reported on earlier
Chest spawns in Hellfire Ramparts, Karazhan: Chess Event and The Mechanar will not
be lootable by anyone absent for a significant amount of the boss fights near the chests. On the upside, Heroic Ramparts and Heroic Mechanar chests will contain a Badge of Justice
for every member in the party and the Karazhan cache will contain two! I can tell what two Heroic dungeons are about to get very popular.
Finally, special Engineered goggles are no longer necessary to see the gas clouds in Netherstorm for mote extraction. However, the goggles will now allow the gas clouds to be seen on the minimap in addition to whatever other tracking the player currently has up.
With Patch 2.3 background loading this week, one can only hope Zul'Aman
will be available for all of us to enjoy soon and Patch 2.4
introducing the Sunwell Plateau will be served up on the PTR right after.
