Select Tier 8 set bonuses updated in latest PTR build

As I mentioned when the Tier 8 set bonuses were first revealed, some of them will probably change before patch 3.1 hits live realms. Better ideas come up, bugs are fixed, things are rebalanced, all of that. It's proven true so far, because tonight's PTR build has changed a few of them, most notably the ones that had incorrect or missing values in the tooltips. Here are the set bonuses changes we've seen so far in this build:

  • Balance 2Piece Bonus -- Increases the bonus granted by Eclipse for Starfire and Wrath by 15%.
  • Protection 2Piece Bonus -- Increases the damage done by your Seals of Vengeance, Corruption, and Righteousness by 10%.
  • Protection 4Piece Bonus -- Shield of Righteousness now increases your shield block value by 225 for that attack and for 3 sec afterward.
  • Holy 4Piece Bonus -- Your Sacred Shield can now trigger its effect every 4 sec instead of every 6.

Tier 8 set bonuses hit the PTR

A new build has hit the patch 3.1 PTR, and with it has come something that many people have been waiting on most of all: Tier 8 set bonuses! We have all of them listed below, but keep something in mind while you read them: They are probably not finished, just take this as a preview. Set bonuses always shift and change before they go live, and I can guarantee that some of these will. At the very least, they'll have some typos and grammatical issues cleaned up, and we'll find out where the missing percentage symbols are supposed to go.

Death Knight
  • DPS 2Piece Bonus -- Increases the critical strike chance of Death Coil and Frost Strike by 5%.
  • DPS 4Piece Bonus -- Increases the bonus damage done per disease by 20% on Blood Strike, Heart Strike, Obliterate, and Scourge Strike.
  • Tank 2Piece Bonus -- Increases the damage done by Rune Strike by 5%.
  • Tank 2Piece Bonus -- Increases the damage done by Rune Strike by 10%.
