4.3 Dragon Soul Raid Drops
2011/10/14 at 1:36 PM
Last night's PTR patch let us see what will drop from the new raid instance, as the dungeon journal was updated for the Dragon Soul bosses finally.
Some notes: the items themselves aren't entirely done nor is this by any means a final draft of the loot and its ilevels. We think the stats are fairly accurate; however, their names are obviously generated with the "Horrific" prefix and some of their text is erroneous, like the season 10 item or the multiple ones that require Avengers' of Hyjal reputation. Still, this serves as a great basis for what's dropping where--as well as what type of boss you'll be facing, lootwise. I mean, Spine of Deathwing is looking like a trinket boss to us!
Patch 4.3 - PTR Build 14849 - Spell Changes, Darkmoon Faire Replica Items, and More
2011/10/13 at 2:43 PM
A new PTR patch is out; here are the spell differences, icons, maps, and more. Note that while many of the changes are in the
PTR patch notes
, some of them were not (such as Windwalk or Ambidexterity changes).
Remember when they said Darkmoon Faire would, you know, bring back legacy items?
Well, they're back, baby: the original level 60 dungeon sets are making their return, both the blue and epic sets, such as
Replica Soulforge Breastplate
Replica Devout Gloves
Click here for a complete list of new (and returning) items!
There's also a whole slew of PvP gear, but most of it is available on the vendors right now, so we'll have to see if that means they moved its location. Still no word on tier 3 or season 3 gear, but I think there's a good chance it's coming.
And not to be outdone,
Elementium Gem Cluster
make a show--undoubtedly for making the rogue legendary. (As well as
Spectral Mount Crate
for those ghostly mounts so many people didn't like.)

Public Test Realm Patch 4.3 Notes: Updated 10/13
2011/10/13 at 11:52 AM
Some class changes in the PTR notes today: many classes had abilities buffed, especially Warlocks (for example,
lasts 20 seconds instead of 15), Warriors got new character attack animations, and low-level druids should find it easier to tank while leveling now with an armor boost. Another interesting change is the buff to
, making it an even more effective tanking cooldown.

4.3 Preview: Chromatic Dragon Pet and Loot Rule Changes
2011/10/07 at 11:44 AM
We wanted to post a few models up that Alayton found for us--mostly the Chromatic Dragon pet, which I am betting is the reward for the guild legendary for tier 13, since there already was a Deathwing pet a while ago. There are also the Lunar New Year rewards we speculated one as well as the Scarab pet from the next TCG edition (not archaeology as we had hoped).
As for the Fel Hippogryph, he's actually from the TCG (thanks to reader Nathanyel for the tip).
New Loot Rules in 4.3
In response to concerns regarding how loot will be distributed in the Raid Finder system, we are making some changes to how loot rolls will work when using the Need Before Greed system in the Raid Finder. When using Raid Finder for the Dragon Soul raid instanc
Patch 4.3 - PTR Build 14809 - Spell Changes, New Items, and More
2011/10/07 at 4:12 AM
There was a small patch last night. Nothing huge--just new maps for the 5-mans as well as some achievements for PvE encounters in 4.3. In any case, we also have a
new data push on the PTR site
so you can check out all the data we've acquired so far. A major thanks to everyone who uses the
as well during the PTR, it always helps us!
I'm tacking on some notable blue posts here as sort of a round up as well--heirlooms might be changing in the future and void storage pricing was changed considerably. Hopefully this stops some of the complaining we've seen about the prices!
We would like to share an insight on the approach that is the philosophy behind the heirlooms at the moment. This is still something that may change, so please do not take it as set in stone.
In short, the developers agree that the process of mailing heirlooms around constantly is a little annoying. We'd prefer to try and work ourselves away from the method of mailing out BoA items in the future, like pets, mounts, etc. To that end, we have some desig

<p><em>We like to tie a Hunter’s Tier armour in with an appropriate donor creature – it suggests the Hunter has actually <em>hunted</em> for the set! As there’s an awful lot of dragons in this patch, a draconic theme was the way to go. We wanted to reference but not simply reproduce the classic Dragonstalker set. To that end, we limited the use of dragon heads to the helm and chained leathery wings around the shoulders which gives the impression of a skeletal drago
