Patch 3.3 – PTR Build 10571 – Neue Relics, Achievements, updated Patchnotes

Heute Nacht wurde wieder ein neuer PTR Patch 3.3 Build auf die Testserver aufgespielt. Viel Neues scheint nicht hinzu gekommen zu sein.

Insgesamt fällt jedoch auf, daß Blizzard dem Shadow-Priest etwas „Liebe“ zugesteht, denn wenn ich mir die Zahlen so ansehe, um wieviel der Damage gesteigert wird, könnte der Shadow demnächst, genau wie alle anderen Hybriden, ordentlichen DPS rausdrücken. Zumal nun auch endlich die Schattenpriester-Dots mit Haste skalieren, was nochmals einen DPS-Push bedeutet.

Hinzugefügt wurden ebenfalls die Relics für Todesritter, Schamanen, Paladin und Druiden:

Death Knight

  • Shadowform now let the periodic damage of your Shadow Word: Pain, Devouring Plague, and Vampiric Touch spells benefit from haste.
