7.1.5 PTR: Compilation of All Class Changes From All Builds
The 7.1.5 PTR has been active for many weeks now, and a popular request we've gotten at Wowhead is to present an overview of the class changes from Patch 7.1 to 7.1.5, aka "unofficial patch notes." Every week Wowhead posts a list of the datamined changes from each 7.1.5 PTR update, but some players would also like to see the changes from the past few months to get an overall sense of how the classes evolve.
We've gone through the spell data from the last five builds and organized all the changes by spec, noting multiple changes to a spell if it was modified several weeks in a row. Not interested in a particular class? Just click the toggle button to hide that class and jump to the next section.
Notes for each specific build can be found here:
. On each spell page there is a
tab; this allows you to see the complete history for a spell.
