7.1.5 Class Updates: Unholy Death Knights and Marksmanship Hunters
2016/12/21 at 10:09 PM
Several class updates were posted in response to 7.1.5 feedback including Unholy Death Knights and Marksmanship Hunters. Note that while the term "hotfix" is used this doesn't mean it's a live hotfix visible in 7.1--it means that updates are being made to the PTR outside of formal builds with datamining.
Class Design on the 7.1.5 PTR, Mythic Keystone Leaderboards Now Available, November 22nd Hotfixes
2016/11/22 at 3:59 PM
For blue posts today, Blizzard clarified some of their recent class balance changes and the design approach behind them. This included the much anticipated traps for Survival Hunters, which was teased during several BlizzCon interviews, as well as an explanation on what they are trying to do with Fire mages.
Blizzard also added keystone leaderboards for Mythic+ dungeons. You'll now be able to see who has the best time by realm and dungeon.
Class Design on the 7.1.5 PTR
2016/11/18 at 9:25 PM
When the 7.1.5 PTR went up earlier this week, we had
spell changes from datamining
but no specific class changes in the
official patch notes
. As such, there was some confusion as to the intended changes and class directions for specializations that seemed unfinished.
Today, Blizzard explained that the 7.1.5 PTR so far only shows roughly half of the mechanical changes, with more of them coming in the next build. Once the mechanical changes are in a good place, adjustments to overall performance will follow.
You can read up on the spell changes so far in our

Patch 5.4: Dev Watercooler on Upcoming Class Changes
2013/08/12 at 12:04 PM
Yeah, I know, long time no watercooler. I’ve been busy.
I wanted to take a moment to provide context for some of the Patch 5.4 class changes that we’ve been making. If you haven’t already, you’ll want to get acquainted with the
5.4 PTR Patch Notes
, as this watercooler is going into detail on the changes listed. I’ll discuss the changes to each class, but here are a few things to keep in mind before we get started:
The team made a lot of changes to glyphs that weren’t working out well or were just to provide some new choices. There were a lot of changes so to keep this blog manageable, I’m not going to go into them in detail.
I’m not going to get into specific damage or healing tuning unless it requires extra explanation for some reason. In general, you can assume that your damage was too low or too high if you see generic buffs or nerfs to abilities.
As I write this, Patch 5.4 has not shipped yet, so if there are changes yet to come, I’m obviously not going to be able to cover
