PTR Development Notes for Build 23578, Artifact Curve Changes, Nighthold Bosses Drop AP
Another 7.2 PTR build is on the way later today. Here's the development notes and some upcoming changes to the 7.2 Artifact Power Grind. Of particular interest in the development notes:
New content open for testing includes the
Cathedral of Eternal Night
Broken Shore World Bosses
Mythic+ has received a variety of improvements such as new affixes, the removal of Overflowing, and adjustments to Artifact Power rewards. Longer dungeons now reward more AP!
Blizzard has also confirmed that their initial Artifact Knowledge and Artifact Power curves were not final in the data - the build after next should see more accurate values. Our PTR Artifact Calculator should automatically update with those values, whenever they are added.
Edit: following the Artifact Power discussion, Lore revealed that Nighthold bosses now drop Artifact Power in 7.1.5.
