All the Class and Artifact Trait Changes in Patch 7.2.5
Patch 7.2.5 has more class changes than Patch 7.2, so we've started up our usual compilation of overall class changes from the PTR - talents, abilities, set bonuses, artifact traits. Every week Wowhead posts a list of the datamined changes from each 7.2.5 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, as well as blue posts in one place.
We've gone through the spell data from every update and organized all the changes by spec, noting overall 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:

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:

tab; this allows you to see the complete history for a spell.

new and changed legendary armor in 7.1.5
