4.3 5-man Dungeon Drops
2011/10/05 at 4:22 PM
We managed to get the loot tables for the 5-mans (prettied up by resident volunteer Neutronimity, thanks!)--this is probably a lot more helpful than our datamined list of items as these show what will drop from where and what stats you can start looking forward to picking up.
A quick rundown of the items: they're ilevel 378 and surprisingly solid stats. The trinkets were taken from Bastion of Twilight and Blackwing Descent in procs and on uses, making them equally solid; whose death knight alt wouldn't want to nab a ?
As a side note, there are also unique dungeon sets for these 5-mans. While they do not have set bonuses, they do have a noticeable style which

So before I get onto the cool stuff, a quick congratulations to the five
Diablo III beta winners
aceofangel, Jarrho, Arawethion, Rainemard,
! You'll have an email sometime this week about your keys.
Anyway, today was another PTR patch so Perculia and I checked it out after our raids tonight--and came up with some interesting stuff, not least of all, a whole lot of screenshots of another 5-man. We also discovered that the dungeon journal entries for Dragon Soul changed, in particular, Warmaster Blackthorn got a new entry which we have included at the bottom of this post.
Hour of Twilight 5-Man Preview
The final stage in this series of dungeons is set in the present-day Dragonblight, now under a full invasion by the Twilight's Hammer. Players must escort Thrall and the Dragon Soul safely to Wyrmrest Temple, where the assault on Deathwing is to commence. But the Twilight's Hammer forces are numerous, and their leadership remains strong. Those attacking the temple are commanded by a man known v
4.3 Valor Point Changes
2011/10/04 at 8:06 PM
<p>With the 4.3 patch we'll be introducing some changes to the way Valor Points (VP) are obtained, as well as the items that they can purchase.<br />
Changes coming in 4.3:</p>
<ul style="margin-left: 40px;">
<li>Looking for Dungeon -- 150 VP per run, with a cap of seven runs per week. All Cataclysm heroic dungeons introduced in 4.0, 4.1, and 4.3, will provide 150 Valor per run.<br />
<li>Looking for Raid -- 250 VP per run, with a cap of 500 per week. The 4.3 raid, Dragon Soul, will be split into two separate raids for the Raid Finder. While individual bosses do not drop Valor when using the Raid Finder, you will receive 250 Valor for completing each Dragon Soul raid. Each boss will only drop loot for you once per week, but you will continue to get the 250 Valor for completing each Raid Finder raid, up to the 500 cap.<br />
<li>10 player raid boss -- 115 VP. There are nine bosses per week, counting Baradin Hold.<br />
<li>25 player raid boss -- 135 VP. There are nine bosses per week, counting Baradin Hold.<br />
<li>Valor Points cap at 1000 per week.<br />

Patch notes are up, some pretty interesting stuff like ZG/ZA nerfs--players will no longer have to kill all bosses before moving onto the end boss which should speed it up quite a bit!

Patch 4.3 - PTR Build 14791 - Spell Changes, New Items, and More
2011/10/04 at 4:19 PM
There's a PTR patch that just hit, we're checking it out--might not be too big. Expect this page to be updated. For now enjoy the spell diffs.
The strings we pulled show some hints to the maps for the new raid. The 5-mans have them as well, but those aren't as cool (and you've already seen the first 5-man which had the majority of 'em).
DUNGEON_FLOOR_DRAGONSOUL0 = "Dragonblight";
DUNGEON_FLOOR_DRAGONSOUL1 = "Maw of Unmaking";
DUNGEON_FLOOR_DRAGONSOUL2 = "Maw of Ruin";
DUNGEON_FLOOR_DRAGONSOUL3 = "Eye of Eternity";
DUNGEON_FLOOR_DRAGONSOUL4 = "Skyfire Airship";
DUNGEON_FLOOR_DRAGONSOUL5 = "Spine of Deathwing";
DUNGEON_FLOOR_DRAGONSOUL6 = "The Maelstrom";
new items with today's patch including tons of new epic item level 378 gear! Some of these items currently feature placeholder names hinting at their sources, such as "Twilight Hour," "End Time," and "Eternity." In addition to all this epic gear, there's a handful of new weapons, too!
