Wowhead's Patch 5.4 Interview with Lead Game Designer Tom Chilton
2013/08/18 at 10:24 AM
Patch 5.4 is coming very soon
, bringing with it a variety of innovative content from Flex Raiding to the daily-free Timeless Isle. This past week, we got to sit down with Lead Game Designer Tom Chilton and ask him about popular upcoming content--the unique nature of the Timeless Isle, legendary questline development, Proving Grounds, and more.
Read on to find out more about the most-anticipated features coming in Patch 5.4!
I've had a lot of fun with the
on the PTR--finding all the hidden events, getting the vanity loot, participating in the Pet Tournament, etc. What were the inspirations in designing a hub that's so radically different from past ones, where the emphasis is on participating in fun vanity content instead of daily hubs for reputation epics?

5.4 PTR: Build 17314, Spell Changes, Spec-Specific Legendary Proc Values, and More
2013/08/17 at 9:40 AM
Amidst all the
yesterday, there was a pretty small new PTR build. There were no new items in this build--just a bunch of spell changes as part of Blizzard's tuning pass and a
handful of new spells
. For the most up-to-date official changes, check out the
5.4 PTR Patch Notes
One cool addition we found in this build was that the proc rates for legendary capes have been assigned unique values for each spec. You can check out what values each spec's proc is by visiting a cape's page and clicking on the various radio buttons. In addition, all of the proc rates scale with item level, so if you click on the Upgrade buttons, the proc will increase correctly as well.

Talk Azeroth: Episode 11, Battlefield Barrens and Eternally In The Vale Removed in 5.4
2013/08/16 at 11:25 AM
Today's newspost is about prepping for 5.4--things you should be stockpiling for the patch, as well as things you might want to get done before they're removed!
This week Olivia's taking you on a voyage into patch 5.4 as we recently found out when it was going live on servers. She tells you just exactly what you ought to be thinking of stockpiling and what you ought to be spending, and theorizing on reasons why there might not be a Valor reset with the patch.
The main topic she wants to talk to you about this week, though, is heirlooms. Olivia's got a wacky theory she wants to share on just how the personal loot system might interact with these new heirlooms.
Then she moves onto loot equality, trying to reassure LFR-only raiders that things will turn out OK, while also waxing lyrical on the reasons why these items should and shouldn't be in LFR in the first place.
Removed Content in Patch 5.4
Along with the announcement that
PvP Season 13 is ending soon
, some other content will be changing in Patch 5.4.
