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.

7.1.5 PTR: Build 23244 Spell and Legendary Updates
A new PTR build is here with spell and legendary proc updates!
Many legendaries were buffed or nerfed
; Blizzard explained that the goal was to nerf the power of legendaries that were strong in all situations. We also have a brand new datamining format for legendary procs and stats, we hope you like it! We have also updated our
7.1.5 Legendary Guide
with a compilation of all the changes from past builds so you can see how things overall change from live to PTR.
More specs received Aura Damage updates including +12% to Retribution Paladin, 3% to Unholy Death Knight, 4% to Destruction Warlock, +7% to Survival Hunter, and +5% to Arms Warrior.
New spells include the Shadow Priest Talent
while Greater Blessing of Might has been removed. Remember though that Retribution Paladins received a 12% damage increase to their remaining abilities.
Many Vantus Runes have been buffed from 1000 to 1500; while the costs have been halved!

Patch 7.1.5: Build 23194 Spell, Legendary, and Spec Aura Changes
7.1.5 Classes Q&A
, Blizzard has pushed a small PTR build with some class changes. This follows a
large build from Monday
with new talents, Nighthold loot rebalancing, and micro-holiday testing.
Blizzard also buffed several specs via "auras" which allows many spells in a spec to be changed quickly at once. These affected spells do not show up via normal datamining but we have added spec changes and the related spells to our spell diff. For example, the traditional spell diff only shows a nerf to
for Shadow Priests, but the aura
buffed many other Shadow Priest abilities by 25%.

: Apply Aura: Modifies Damage/Healing Done Value: + 15%
: Apply Aura: Modifies Damage/Healing Done Value: + 12%
