World of Warcraft Version 10.0.7 PTR

This Public Test Realm (PTR) is a testing environment for the content coming with the Dragonflight 10.0.7 update.

Dragonflight 10.0.7 Update Development Notes

RETURN TO THE FORBIDDEN REACH

Return to the Forbidden Reach to learn more of the story of the dracthyr Evoker awakening now that the defeat of Raszageth has been secured. This zone includes new content for max-level players delving into the troubles left behind by the meddling of the Primalists and the chaos they’ve left behind among the elements. Players will discover hidden Treasure Rooms with the Dragonscale Expedition, encounter new bosses and objectives, more storms, new loot to add to their arsenal, and more.

  • The Forbidden Reach is now available for testing.
  • Treasure Vaults are now on their intended weekly timer (was daily for testing purposes).

WINTERPELT FURBOLG FACTION

  • The Winterpelt furbolg speak a language no one seems to understand. Learn to understand, and eventually speak, the language of the Winterpelt furbolg as you help Sonova Snowden crack their peculiar dialect and earn their trust.
  • Start the “Academic Assistance” quest by accepting it in the Adventure Guide. “Academic Assistance” will become available after completing the Winterpelt Hollow and Rustpine Den quest chains in the Azure Span.
  • Players can access their language progress in the Spellbook.

THE MONK CLASS EXPANDS TO NEW RACES

  • Lightforged Draenei, Worgen, and Goblin races have learned how to harness their Chi and can now become Monks.
  • Lightforged Draenei and Worgen Monk NPCs have made their homes in Stormwind, Goblin Monk NPCs can be found in Kezan, Bilgewater Cartel, and a Goblin Monk NPC now sells sage advice in Orgrimmar.

FACTION ENVOY

Represent a Dragon Isles Major Faction every day by visiting the envoys in the Forbidden Reach and earn a 10% reputation increase of the chosen Major Faction for the day. Envoys also occasionally offer quests for extra reputation and Elemental Overflow to spend at the Envoy traders for new rewards such as four new dragonriding customizations, the Buckie battle pet, and the Noble Bruffalon mount.

CLASSES

  • DEATH KNIGHT
    • Frost
      • Remorseless Winter has been removed from the talent tree and now learned at level 19.
      • Might of the Frozen Wastes has been removed from the talent tree and now learned at level 25.
      • Frostreaper has been removed from the talent tree and now learned at level 28.
      • New Talent: Fatal Fixation – Killing Machine can stack up to 1 additional time. Replaces Frostreaper on the talent tree.
      • Biting Cold has moved to Remorseless Winter’s old position in the Frost specialization tree.
      • Everfrost has moved to Biting Cold’s old position in the Frost specialization tree.
      • Obliteration now causes Soul Reaper to also grant Killing Machine and have a chance to generate a Rune during Pillar of Frost
        • Developers’ note: Frost will be seeing a few updates to their tree in 10.0.7. Currently Frost feels 1 or 2 points off from being able to make more meaningful choices within their spec tree. To help ease some of this we are shifting a few talents to be auto-learned on level up and replacing them with a new or existing talent. The new version of the tree should offer a little more variety and feel less linear when allocating your talent points and give you more choice based on the content you are running.
      • Breath of Sindragosa damage has been increased by 25% and Runic Power spent per second increased to 18 (was 16).
      • Frost Strike damage increased by 10% and Runic Power cost increased to 30 (was 25).
        • Developers’ note: Frost Death Knight currently has a surplus of Runic Power income which is leading to wasted Runic Power overflow in Obliteration builds and longer than intended durations in Breath of Sindragosa builds. In order to help address this we are increasing both the cost and damage of Frost Strike and Breath of Sindragosa. Maintaining a long breath can feel satisfying for many players but it can also feel disheartening when you lose it for reasons out of your control since so much of your damage becomes reliant on a very high uptime of Breath. The goal with this change is to bring the duration of Breath to a much more reasonable and compact window that allows you to deal the majority of your Breath damage in a shorter window.
    • Unholy
      • Epidemic has swapped places with Unholy Blight within the talent tree.
      • Pestilence implementation has been updated to better reflect the functionality of the tooltip.
      • Rotten Touch duration increased to 10 seconds (was 6 seconds).
      • Runic Mastery now also increases Runic Corruption’s Rune regeneration rate by an additional 10/20%.
      • Commander of the Dead has been updated to always buff your nearby Gargoyle (or Dark Arbiter) and Army of the Dead Ghouls for 30 seconds after using Dark Transformation.
        • Developers’ note: The previous implementation of Commander of the Dead had too many edge cases where it would not always buff your minions or the window was too tight and created less than ideal rotational impact. We have instead updated it to be an aura around the Death Knight for the duration that will always buff their Gargoyle or Army of the Dead ghoul regardless of when they were spawned in after Dark Transformation was used.
      • Developers’ note: There are additional changes for Unholy Death Knights coming in future 10.0.7 PTR builds that aim to address some quality of life concerns and underperforming talents.
      • Harbinger of Doom now also increases the damage of your next Death Coil by 20% or Epidemic by 10%.
      • Pestilent Pustules has been removed from the Unholy specialization tree.
      • Defile is no longer a choice node with Unholy Pact and has replaced Pestilent Pustules within the specialization tree.
      • Defile now works with the Pestilence talent.
      • Defile now has additional functionality - If an enemy is inside Defile, it grants 1% Mastery every second, stacking up to 8% Mastery.
      • Ruptured Viscera now has a 25% chance to apply a Festering Wound to enemies struck by the explosion.
      • Ruptured Viscera damage increased by 10%.
      • Feasting Strike now also has a 15% chance to grant Runic Corruption.
      • Commander of the Dead no longer only affects nearby Army of the Dead ghouls or Summon Gargoyle and should apply to any summoned ghoul or gargoyle regardless of their distance from you.
  • DEMON HUNTER
    • Reduced the range that Fodder to the Flame demons can spawn by 20%.
    • The Demon Soul generated upon killing a Fodder to the Flame demon will now land in front it (towards the Demon Hunter), whenever possible.
    • Havoc
      • Blind Fury now increases Eye Beam damage and duration by 10%/20% (was duration only by 25%/50%).
      • Improved Fel Rush and the choice node of Desperate Instincts/Netherwalk have swapped locations in the specialization tree.
      • Furious Throws and Fel Eruption have swapped locations in the specialization tree.

    • Balance
      • Stellar Flare now has an additional effect – If dispelled, causes a Star Burst to crash into the dispeller, dealing area of effect damage and knocking enemies dealing damage and knocking them back.
        • Developers’ note: We would like there to be some cost associated with dispelling Balance Druid damage over time effects in PvP now that their damage relies more heavily on having Moonfire, Sunfire, and Stellar Flare active on their target.
    • Feral
      • Merciless Claws now increases the damage of Swipe and Brutal Slash by 15% (was 10%)
      • Berserk: Frenzy now bleeds targets for 100% of damage dealt by combo point generators during Berserk (was 125%).
      • Shred, Swipe, Brutal Slash, and Thrash damage increased by 6%.
        • Developers’ note: Berserk: Frenzy consolidates a lot of the damage players deal with builders in their Berserk windows. This change is intended to spread more of builders’ damage to outside the Berserk window.
    • Guardian
      • Thorns of Iron has been redesigned – When you cast Ironfur, also deal Physical damage equal to 30% of your armor, split among enemies within 12 yards. Damage reduced above 4 applications.
        • Developers’ note: Implementation of these new effects will be added in a future PTR build, functionality for this week’s PTR might be a little buggy while we work on these new effects.
      • Thorns of Iron is now affected by the Guardian Druid specialization passive, and its damage values have been adjusted accordingly.
        • Developers’ note: This is a net neutral change to the Thorns of Iron ability.
      • Fixed an issue that was causing Bristling Fur’s global cooldown to not be reduced by Haste.
      • Fixed an issue that was causing Circle of Life and Death to incorrectly reduce Pulverize’s duration.
    • Restoration
      • New Talent: Tranquil Mind – Increases Omen of Clarity’s chance to activate Clearcasting to 5% and Clearcasting can stack 1 additional time.
      • New Talent: Deep Focus – When Moonfire, Rake, Rip, or Rejuvenation are active on a single target, their effects are increased 40%.
      • Embrace of the Dream now also triggers on targets with the Regrowth heal over time effect.
      • Regenerative Heartwood now also extends the duration of Ironbark by 4 seconds.
      • Natural Wisdom is now a baseline effect on Innervate for Restoration Druids. No longer increases mana regeneration by 5% and the additional Innervate’s effectiveness has been reduced to 50% (was 100%).

    • Dracthyr now know the Aerial Halt ability, like Dragonriding drakes, that allows them to significantly reduce their forward movement.
    • Draconic Legacy now increases Stamina by 3%/6% (was 2%/4%).
    • Foci of Life has been redesigned – Renewing Blaze restores you more quickly, causing damage you take to be healed back over 4 seconds.
    • Ancient Flame has been redesigned – Casting Emerald Blossom or Verdant Embrace reduces the cast time of your next Living Flame by 40%.
    • Ancient Flame has been moved to Roar of Exhilaration’s location in the talent tree.

      • When Lifebind is applied through a lower value Echo with Temporal Anomaly, its healing value is reduced to match the value of the Echo.
      • When Golden Hour is applied through a lower value Echo with Temporal Anomaly, its healing value is reduced to match the value of the Echo.
  • HUNTER
    • Developers’ note: Neltharax, Enemy of the Sky is going to be changed in this week’s PTR build. The bow has a bonus effect on it that was intended to be a boost to the Hunter’s auto-shot damage when shooting a single target, and we still want to keep it that way. The special effect from the bow was not intended to also increase the melee auto-attack speed of any summoned pets. The power gain from this special Equip effect, in addition to its rarity, has made a pretty big divide between Hunters who have this bow, and Hunters who don’t. We’re changing the bow to have an equip effect that increases your auto-attack damage, rather than auto-attack speed. This auto-attack damage bonus will only affect you, the Hunter, and your own auto-shot damage – nothing from your pets will be increased from having this special bow. We recognize that the power gain of this bow was very large, and are tuning up some Hunter abilities to compensate for the changes made to the bow. Below are the tuning changes currently planned:
    • Serpent Sting damage increased by 25%.
    • Death Chakram damage increased by 100%.

      • Barbed Shot damage increased by 12% (was 25%). Does not apply to PvP combat.
      • Kill Cleave now transfers 60% of Kill Command’s damage (was 50%).

      • Arcane Shot damage increased by 25%. Does not apply to PvP combat.
      • Chimaera Shot damage increased by 25%. Does not apply to PvP combat.
      • Multi-Shot damage increased by 15%.

      • Enveloping Breath is now visible on raid frames.
      • Lesson of Fear now increases Haste by 20% (was 25%).
        • Developers’ note: We are decreasing the high-roll potential of Lesson of Fear to disincentivize aggressive “fishing” for a favored buff. Moving forward, we plan to monitor the gameplay and community feedback around this talent change closely to ensure the outcome of adding a tracking buff is in-line with our goals.
      • Sheilun’s Gift healing increased by 20% (was 10%).

    • Developer’s Notes
      • We are hard at work on the updates to the Retribution tree and are close to being able to share it with the community and a set of in depth development notes to give an overview of what’s changed.
      • We’re also making some changes to the Paladin class tree, some of which you’ll see in today’s PTR update.
      • Retribution Aura in Dragonflight has functioned only as a personal throughput benefit to Paladins, locking them out of using other Auras during gameplay. We’re looking to change that, so Retribution Aura now grants 5% increased damage and healing for 10 seconds to all party or raid members whenever a party or raid member within 40 yards takes more than 50% of their health in damage. This can only occur once every 30 seconds.
      • In addition to the changes to Retribution Aura, Retribution Paladins will receive a baseline passive: Instrument of Retribution - When any party or raid member within 40 yards dies, you gain Avenging wrath for 12 sec.
      • Seraphim has been removed from the Paladin talent tree, in our previous developer notes we mentioned points regarding stacking auras and having an excessive amount of buttons to press. Seraphim is a fairly large factor in both and we feel it is better to take the throughput provided by this cooldown and build it into your core abilities.
      • As a result of the above, we’ve decided to move Divine Toll to the Paladin class tree to ensure there’s still a powerful and exciting node at the end point of the class tree as a goal.
      • We look forward to sharing more with you in the coming weeks and hearing to your feedback!

      • Developer notes:
        • Looking at talents early in the Affliction tree, Xavian Teachings feels overly mandatory to smooth out Affliction’s gameplay. Additionally, Harvester of Souls is difficult to tune to be competitive with other options on Affliction’s tree due to how it affects survivability. Due to this, we are making Xavian Teachings baseline and removing Harvester of Souls and in their place adding basic throughput increase talents, to avoid additional complexity.
        • Darkglare has been increasingly difficult to tune due to how they scale in multi-target situations. To remedy this, we are changing how Darkglare scales so that they contribute more in single-target encounters. This should also increase the effectiveness of Grim Reach, emphasizing Darkglare as a powerful AOE option when talented.

      • New Talent: Umbral Blaze – Hand of Gul’dan has a 8/15% chance to burn its target for additional Shadowflame damage every 2 seconds for 6 seconds.
      • Umbral Blaze has been added to the Demonology specialization tree in Hounds of War’s previous location.
      • Hounds of War has been removed from the Demonology talent tree.

      • Guillotine now lasts 6 seconds (was 8 seconds).
      • Stolen Power now triggers after 75 applications (was 100).
      • Developer notes:
        • Hounds of War has little room for further tuning due to it hooking onto rotational, frequently used spells in the Demonology toolkit. To replace it, we are bringing back Umbral Blaze as a choice to further improve Hand of Gul’dan.
        • Reign of Tyranny has continued to underperform. However, rather than put additional emphasis on the ramp up required, we are wanting to bring up its ‘floor’ value while retaining the skill expression aspect of the talent. Ideally, this makes Reign of Tyranny the more passive, friendly option compared to the frequent skill checks that Grand Warlock’s Design demands.
        • Lastly, Guillotine has been underperforming. To rectify this, we are increasing its overall throughput and decreasing its duration to make it a more competitive choice. In addition, we are adding a new capstone to the right side of the tree that focuses on improving Demonology’s contribution to single target encounters without adding complexity to their rotational gameplay.

      • Burn to Ashes now stacks up to 6 times.

Hello everyone. Here is this week’s update to the 10.0.7 PTR:

CLASSES

  • DEATH KNIGHT
    • Frost
      • Remorseless Winter has been removed from the talent tree and now learned at level 19.
      • Might of the Frozen Wastes has been removed from the talent tree and now learned at level 25.
      • Frostreaper has been removed from the talent tree and now learned at level 28.
      • New Talent: Fatal Fixation – Killing Machine can stack up to 1 additional time. Replaces Frostreaper on the talent tree.
      • Biting Cold has moved to Remorseless Winter’s old position in the Frost specialization tree.
      • Everfrost has moved to Biting Cold’s old position in the Frost specialization tree.
      • Obliteration now causes Soul Reaper to also grant Killing Machine and have a chance to generate a Rune during Pillar of Frost
        • Developers’ note: Frost will be seeing a few updates to their tree in 10.0.7. Currently Frost feels 1 or 2 points off from being able to make more meaningful choices within their spec tree. To help ease some of this we are shifting a few talents to be auto-learned on level up and replacing them with a new or existing talent. The new version of the tree should offer a little more variety and feel less linear when allocating your talent points and give you more choice based on the content you are running.
  • MONK
    • Mistweaver
      • Sheilun’s Gift now triggers Mastery: Gust of Mist exclusively onto its primary target.
      • Sheilun’s Gift healing increased by 10%.
      • New Talent: Legacy of Wisdom – Sheilun’s Gift heals 2 additional allies and its cast time is reduced by 0.5 seconds.
    • Windwalker
      • New Talent: Skytouch – Tiger Palm applies an effect which increases your critical strike chance by 50% for 6 seconds on the target. This effect cannot be applied more than once every 1 minute per target.
        • This has been added as a choice node on Skyreach for players that still want the benefit additional critical strike but do not want to dash to their target.
  • PALADIN
    • Seal of Mercy is now a 1 rank talent (was 2).
    • Divine Toll and Divine Resonance have been added to the class tree.
    • Removed Seraphim and Sanctified Wrath talents from the class tree.
    • Retribution Aura has been redesigned - now grants 5% increased damage and healing for 10 seconds to all party or raid members whenever a party or raid member within 40 yards takes more than 50% of their health in damage. This can only occur once every 30 seconds.
    • Protection
      • Sanctified Wrath has been added to the Protection tree.
      • Talents positioned around the 20 point gate have been adjusted.
      • Spellwarding has been moved below the 20 point gate.
      • Strength in Conviction and Faith in the Light have swapped locations in the Protection tree.
      • Faith’s Armor is now a 2-rank talent and now causes Shield of the Righteous to grant additional armor.
    • Developer’s Notes
      • We are hard at work on the updates to the Retribution tree and are close to being able to share it with the community and a set of in depth development notes to give an overview of what’s changed.
      • We’re also making some changes to the Paladin class tree, some of which you’ll see in today’s PTR update.
      • Retribution Aura in Dragonflight has functioned only as a personal throughput benefit to Paladins, locking them out of using other Auras during gameplay. We’re looking to change that, so Retribution Aura now grants 5% increased damage and healing for 10 seconds to all party or raid members whenever a party or raid member within 40 yards takes more than 50% of their health in damage. This can only occur once every 30 seconds.
      • In addition to the changes to Retribution Aura, Retribution Paladins will receive a baseline passive: Instrument of Retribution - When any party or raid member within 40 yards dies, you gain Avenging wrath for 12 sec.
      • Seraphim has been removed from the Paladin talent tree, in our previous developer notes we mentioned points regarding stacking auras and having an excessive amount of buttons to press. Seraphim is a fairly large factor in both and we feel it is better to take the throughput provided by this cooldown and build it into your core abilities.
      • As a result of the above, we’ve decided to move Divine Toll to the Paladin class tree to ensure there’s still a powerful and exciting node at the end point of the class tree as a goal.
      • We look forward to sharing more with you in the coming weeks and hearing to your feedback!
  • SHAMAN
    • Earth Elemental and Primal Earth Elemental no longer taunt or pulse threat to enemies the Shaman is not in combat with.
    • Earth Elemental and Primal Earth Elemental no longer taunt or pulse threat to enemies that are attacking a player with a tank specialization.
      • Developer’s notes: We have reverted this change to Earth Elemental and Primal Earth Elemental after reviewing feedback we’ve received.
    • Swirling Currents has been redesigned – Increases the healing done by Healing Stream Totem and Cloudburst Totem by 10%/20% for Restoration and 20%/40% for Elemental and Enhancement.
    • Fixed an issue causing the self-cast version of Earth Shield from Elemental Orbit to not increase the healing done by Healing Stream Totem or Healing Tide Totem.
    • Several talents have moved positions in the class tree.
    • Earthgrab Totem now replaces Earthbind Totem. Earthgrab Totem is now the left-most option.
    • Shamans that are in Ghost Wolf now display the Maelstrom resource on their Personal Resource Display instead of mana if they are Elemental specialization.
    • Elemental
      • Electrified Shocks duration increased to 9 seconds (was 6 seconds).
      • Fixed an issue that sometimes prevented Electrified Shocks from applying to the primary target.
    • Restoration
      • A choice node has been added below Mana Tide Totem:
        • New Talent: Resonant Waters – Increases the duration of Mana Tide Totem by 4 seconds and increases its radius by 20 yards.
        • New Talent: Spiritwalker’s Tidal Totem – After using Mana Tide Totem, the cast time of Healing Wave and Chain Heal is reduced by 50% and the mana cost of Healing Wave and Chain Heal are reduced by 50% for 10 seconds.
      • All healing done increased by 8%.
      • Acid Rain damage reduced by 20%.
      • Ancestral Awakening heals for 15%/30% of the amount healed (was 10%/20%).
      • Earthen Harmony has been redesigned – Earth Shield reduces damage taken by 3%/6% and its healing is increased by 50%/100% on targets below 75% health.
      • Cloudburst Totem healing no longer contributes to Ancestral Guidance.
      • Ancestral Awakening and Ancestral Guidance now contribute to Cloudburst Totem healing.
      • Earthliving Weapon’s proc sound effect has been lowered in volume.
  • WARLOCK

    • Developer notes: We are readjusting the tuning of Inquisitor’s Gaze and Summon Soulkeeper once more so that they are more attractive and exciting capstone options for players to path towards as they descend their class tree. In addition, we are removing some defensive talents that felt a bit niche and replacing them with basic throughput talents to avoid adding complexity to each specialization’s rotational gameplay.
    • Affliction
      • Darkglare has been redesigned – Summons a Darkglare from the Twisting Nether that extends the duration of your damage over time effects on all enemies by 8 seconds. The Darkglare will serve you for 20 seconds, blasting its target for Shadow damage, increased by 25% for every damage over time effect you have active on their current target.
      • Xavian Teachings has been removed from the Affliction talent tree and is now baseline.
      • Harvester of Souls has been removed from the Affliction talent tree.
      • Writhe in Agony has been moved to row 3 of the Affliction talent tree and is now a 1 rank talent.

      • Dark Virtuosity has been added to the fourth row.
      • New Talent: Kindled Malice – Increases Malefic Rapture and Seed of Corruption damage by 8/15%.
      • Kindled Malice has been added to the fourth row.
      • Developer notes:
        • Looking at talents early in the Affliction tree, Xavian Teachings feels overly mandatory to smooth out Affliction’s gameplay. Additionally, Harvester of Souls is difficult to tune to be competitive with other options on Affliction’s tree due to how it affects survivability. Due to this, we are making Xavian Teachings baseline and removing Harvester of Souls and in their place adding basic throughput increase talents, to avoid additional complexity.
        • Darkglare has been increasingly difficult to tune due to how they scale in multi-target situations. To remedy this, we are changing how Darkglare scales so that they contribute more in single-target encounters. This should also increase the effectiveness of Grim Reach, emphasizing Darkglare as a powerful AOE option when talented.
    • Demonology
      • Reign of Tyranny now increases the damage of Demonic Tyrant by 50% in addition to its original effect.
      • New Talent: Immutable Hatred – When your primary Felguard’s Legion Strike damages only 1 target, its damage is increased by 120%. Your primary Felguard deals Physical damage after auto-attacking the same enemy 3 consecutive times.
      • Immutable Hatred has been added to the Demonology specialization tree as a choice against Guillotine.
      • New Talent: Umbral Blaze – Hand of Gul’dan has a 8/15% chance to burn its target for additional Shadowflame damage every 2 seconds for 6 seconds.
      • Umbral Blaze has been added to the Demonology specialization tree in Hounds of War’s previous location.
      • Hounds of War has been removed from the Demonology talent tree.
      • Pact of the Imp Mother now has an 8/15% chance (was 5/10%) to cast Hand of Gul’dan a second time.
      • Guillotine damage increased by 200%.
      • Guillotine now lasts 6 seconds (was 8 seconds).
      • Stolen Power now triggers after 75 applications (was 100).
      • Developer notes:
        • Hounds of War has little room for further tuning due to it hooking onto rotational, frequently used spells in the Demonology toolkit. To replace it, we are bringing back Umbral Blaze as a choice to further improve Hand of Gul’dan.
        • Reign of Tyranny has continued to underperform. However, rather than put additional emphasis on the ramp up required, we are wanting to bring up its ‘floor’ value while retaining the skill expression aspect of the talent. Ideally, this makes Reign of Tyranny the more passive, friendly option compared to the frequent skill checks that Grand Warlock’s Design demands.
        • Lastly, Guillotine has been underperforming. To rectify this, we are increasing its overall throughput and decreasing its duration to make it a more competitive choice. In addition, we are adding a new capstone to the right side of the tree that focuses on improving Demonology’s contribution to single target encounters without adding complexity to their rotational gameplay.
    • Destruction
      • Burn to Ashes now stacks up to 6 times.
      • Mayhem is now tracked under the personal resource bar.

    • Mistweaver
      • Healing Sphere (PvP Talent) spell visual has been updated to be more noticeable.

USER INTERFACE AND ACCESSIBILITY

  • NEW FEATURE: REAL TIME CHAT MODERATION
    • Whispers that may contain harassing chat sent from a player you are not friends with will now be hidden. The recipient will receive a message warning them that they’ve received a whisper that may have disruptive content and will be prompted if they’d like to see it anyway. If the whisper is revealed, there will be a Report Player option directly in the message so the offending player can be reported easily.
  • Added a tag in the Chat typing bar to tell players what language they are typing in if they are not typing in Common or Orcish.

Here are this week’s updates to the 10.0.7 PTR.

FACTION ENVOY

Represent a Dragon Isles Major Faction every day by visiting the envoys in the Forbidden Reach and earn a 10% reputation increase of the chosen Major Faction for the day. Envoys also occasionally offer quests for extra reputation and Elemental Overflow to spend at the Envoy traders for new rewards such as four new dragonriding customizations, the Buckie battle pet, and the Noble Bruffalon mount.

CLASSES

  • DEATH KNIGHT
    • Frost
      • Breath of Sindragosa damage has been increased by 25% and Runic Power spent per second increased to 18 (was 16).
      • Frost Strike damage increased by 10% and Runic Power cost increased to 30 (was 25).
        • Developers’ note: Frost Death Knight currently has a surplus of Runic Power income which is leading to wasted Runic Power overflow in Obliteration builds and longer than intended durations in Breath of Sindragosa builds. In order to help address this we are increasing both the cost and damage of Frost Strike and Breath of Sindragosa. Maintaining a long breath can feel satisfying for many players but it can also feel disheartening when you lose it for reasons out of your control since so much of your damage becomes reliant on a very high uptime of Breath. The goal with this change is to bring the duration of Breath to a much more reasonable and compact window that allows you to deal the majority of your Breath damage in a shorter window.
  • DRUID
    • Balance
      • Stellar Flare now has an additional effect – If dispelled, causes a Star Burst to crash into the dispeller, dealing area of effect damage and knocking enemies dealing damage and knocking them back.

  • EVOKER
    • Preservation
      • Ouroboros has been redesigned – Casting Echo increases the healing of your next Emerald Blossom by 15% 30%, stacking up to 10 5 times (was Emerald Blossom and Dream Breath increase healing of Echo).

    • Mistweaver
      • Enveloping Breath is now visible on raid frames.
      • Lesson of Fear now increases Haste by 20% (was 25%).
        • Developers’ note: We are decreasing the high-roll potential of Lesson of Fear to disincentivize aggressive “fishing” for a favored buff. Moving forward, we plan to monitor the gameplay and community feedback around this talent change closely to ensure the outcome of adding a tracking buff is in-line with our goals.
      • Sheilun’s Gift healing increased by 20% (was 10%).

The 10.0.7 PTR has been updated with the following changes:

CLASSES

  • DRUID
    • Guardian
      • Thorns of Iron has been redesigned – When you cast Ironfur, also deal Physical damage equal to 30% of your armor, split among enemies within 12 yards. Damage reduced above 4 applications.
        • Developers’ note: Implementation of these new effects will be added in a future PTR build, functionality for this week’s PTR might be a little buggy while we work on these new effects.
  • EVOKER
    • Preservation
      • Temporal Anomaly absorption value reduced by 20%.
      • Resonating Sphere now applies Echo to the first 4 allies hit (was 6 allies).
      • Temporal Compression can now be gained from casting Tip the Scales.
      • Empowered spells cast with Tip the Scales no longer consume stacks of Temporal Compression.
  • HUNTER
    • Developers’ note: Neltharax, Enemy of the Sky is going to be changed in this week’s PTR build. The bow has a bonus effect on it that was intended to be a boost to the Hunter’s auto-shot damage when shooting a single target, and we still want to keep it that way. The special effect from the bow was not intended to also increase the melee auto-attack speed of any summoned pets. The power gain from this special Equip effect, in addition to its rarity, has made a pretty big divide between Hunters who have this bow, and Hunters who don’t. We’re changing the bow to have an equip effect that increases your auto-attack damage, rather than auto-attack speed. This auto-attack damage bonus will only affect you, the Hunter, and your own auto-shot damage – nothing from your pets will be increased from having this special bow. We recognize that the power gain of this bow was very large, and are tuning up some Hunter abilities to compensate for the changes made to the bow. Below are the tuning changes currently planned:
    • Serpent Sting damage increased by 25%.
    • Death Chakram damage increased by 100%.
    • Beast Mastery
      • Kill Command damage increased by 25%.
      • Barbed Shot damage increased by 25%.
      • Stomp damage increased by 25%.
      • Cobra Shot damage increased by 50%.
    • Marksmanship
      • Arcane Shot damage increased by 25%. Does not apply to PvP combat.
      • Chimaera Shot damage increased by 25%. Does not apply to PvP combat.
      • Multi-Shot damage increased by 15%.
  • PALADIN
    • Retribution Aura has been redesigned – When any party or raid member within 40 yards takes more than 30% of their health in damage in a single hit, each member gains 5% increased damage and healing, decaying over 30 seconds. This cannot occur within 30 seconds of the aura being applied.
      • Developers’ note: Implementation of these new effects will be added in a future PTR build, functionality for this week’s PTR might be a little buggy while we work on these new effects.
    • Wake of Ashes, Execution Sentence and Final Reckoning now contribute to Blessing of Dawn if they are providing Holy Power.
    • Various abilities are no longer providing extra triggers for Blessing of Dawn.
    • Various abilities no longer incorrectly benefit from the damage bonus provided by Blessing of Dawn.

    • Virtuous Silver Cataphract (Set Bonus) now works with Justicar’s Vengeance.
    • Mastery: Hand of Light now provides less Holy damage bonus per point in Mastery.
      • Developers’ note: We’re currently experimenting with this as Retribution Paladin’s damage is made up of both Physical and Holy damage, this leaves their Physical damage in a fairly bad place which we’d like to amend.

    • Burning Crusade now also increases the damage of Divine Storm, Consecration, and Divine Hammer by 10%
