Prvi Izgled: Patch 2.1.0 PTR

Blizzard je napokon objavio prvi blog gde nam prikazuje Patch 2.1.0 PTR!

In the meantime, let's get started with a high-level overview of what you can expect from patch 2.1.0.
Table of Contents:
  • Seasons
  • Greater Rifts
  • Leaderboards
  • Combat Changes
  • The Cesspools
Please note that this is only a preview. The below information does not reflect all changes available in patch 2.1.0 and is subject to change. Some images represent works in progress, and may not be representative of the final product.

Seasons:

Similar to Ladders in Diablo® II, Seasons will offer players in Diablo® III a chance to periodically start fresh, leveling their level 1 characters and artisans from scratch. Season participation benefits include exclusive rewards and unique Legendaries as well as the the thrill of climbing all-new Leaderboards by completing achievements, earning Conquests, or running Greater Rifts.

  

Left: A Seasonal Hardcore Crusader gets ready to hop into the action.
Right: A full overview of your Seasonal characters will be available in your Character Profile.

Conquests:
With the start of each Season, players will have the opportunity to earn Conquests. Conquests are special Season-only achievements (offered in addition to the suite of non-Seasonal achievements already available in the game) that represent a variety of challenging goals. These goals can vary in terms of gameplay and difficulty, and some might be easier to complete than others. With tasks ranging from killing Malthael at level 70 on Torment VI to finishing Acts I-V in an hour or less, Conquests are designed to encourage and promote an array of different playstyles.
Conquests are considered "first come, first served," and the first 1000 individuals to complete a Conquest within a given Season will be immortalized on that Season's regional Leaderboard. Right now, we're looking to provide between 10-15 unique Conquests each Season, and each Conquest will have its own Leaderboard. Conquests will also provide achievement points and will count toward your Seasonal point total. These points will be provided regardless of whether your character placed in the regional Leaderboard. 
No Seasons? No Problem!
Not in the mood to start from scratch? You’ll still benefit from Seasons. New Seasonal Legendaries will roll over to non-Seasonal loot pool after a Season concludes. In addition, Greater Rift leaderboards will also become available to non-Seasonal characters, so you can compare the progress of your friends and clanmates with that of your most veteran heroes!

Greater Rifts:

Formerly referred to as Tiered Rifts, Greater Rifts are a special type of Nephalem Rift that are designed to provide players way to measure their gear progression and efficiency.
How to Access Greater Rifts:
To access a Greater Rift, simply complete a regular Nephalem Rift in any difficulty. When you defeat the Rift Guardian, they'll have a chance to drop a Greater Rift Key. You can then use this new key at the Nephalem Obelisk, similar to other Rift Fragments—this will open a Greater Rift. If you have members in your party, each player will be prompted to use one of their own Greater Rift keys to join the fun! 


Entering a Greater Rift requires its own type of Rift Keys.

How Greater Rifts Work:
While Greater Rifts are a type of Nephalem Rift, there are some key differences between the two features. In Greater Rifts:
  • You'll race against a clock to fill a progress bar by accruing monster kills.
  • Most monsters do not drop loot; rewards have been completely shifted to the Rift Guardian.
    • This removes conflicting pressure from attaining a better time versus picking up all your loot.
  • Monsters grant differing amounts of progress for your progress bar; the tougher the monster, the more they fill up your progress bar.
  • You cannot resurrect at your corpse or in town while in a Greater Rift—only at the last checkpoint.
  • You cannot use player banners or the Teleport option if the target player is in a Greater Rift.
  • Higher Greater Rifts levels are progressively more difficult. 
    • This difficulty is separate from the standard difficulty settings (Master, Torment I-VI, etc.)
If you complete a Greater Rift before time expires you'll advance to the next difficulty level. Should your time be exceptionally good, you might even skip a few levels! If time instead expires, you'll have reached the end of your current Greater Rift journey and your best results will be posted to the appropriate Leaderboards.

Your progress bar is a little different inside a Greater Rift, to allow you to gauge your completion compared to your efficiency.

Legendary Gems:
Greater Rifts are truly a challenge, and conquering such challenges should be met with great reward. To provide a unique and upgradable incentive, we're introducing Legendary Gems.
Legendary Gems are still undergoing significant iteration at this time, so you won't see them available on the PTR right away. The gist is that these gems are infinitely upgradeable, and provide special Legendary powers when socketed into the appropriate gear slot. They can only be socketed into Rings and Amulets, and can be upgraded by completing additional Greater Rifts. The higher you place in a Greater Rift, the more likely your gem will be successfully upgraded. We'll have more details in the future as we continue development on these powerful baubles, so stay tuned!
Coming to a Nephalem Rift Near You:
Some of the changes in Greater Rifts are also coming to regular Nephalem Rifts—like the way the completion bar will advance based on monster difficulty. In addition, we're slightly modifying the entry mechanism for all Rifts. All players will need to have a Rift Fragment in order to enter a Nephalem Rift; however, we’ve reduced the cost for entering a Nephalem Rift down to one Rift Fragment per character to compensate.

Leaderboards:

With so many ways to compete, we want to provide players with a quick and easy way to measure their progress. Enter our next big feature for patch 2.1.0: Leaderboards. Leaderboards will track progress for Greater Rifts, Seasonal achievement points, and Seasonal Conquests across a variety of game styles. Designed to be informative and detailed, Leaderboards will allow you to compare your progress to that of your gameplay region, friends, and clan members, and each type of board will track progress a little differently.

Leaderboards offer a variety of ways to compare your accomplishments to your friends and clanmates.

Greater Rift Leaderboards:
Greater Rift leaderboards will be split between both Hardcore and Normal gameplay modes as well as Seasonal and Non-Seasonal characters. To help encourage a variety of play styles and allow you to measure yourself against similar competitors, we've also broken up Greater Rift leaderboards into the following categories:
  • Solo play for each class (e.g. top players for Barbarian, Demon Hunter, Crusader, etc.)
  • 2-Player Groups
  • 3-Player Groups
  • 4-Player Groups
Season-Only Leaderboards:
Some Leaderboards will be Season-only. For example, Conquests are only tracked on Seasonal characters, so these Leaderboards won't have a non-Season equivalent. The same will be true for Seasonal achievement points. In addition, because Conquests and achievements are account-wide, their associated Leaderboards will not be split between Normal and Hardcore (even though some tasks may require playing a particular mode). 

Combat Changes:

Of course, with so many competitive elements hitting the PTR, we're also reviewing each class thoroughly to ensure no matter what you play, you have a fair chance at reaching your Seasonal goals. While we won't be getting into class specific details here, we wanted to share with you a few examples of overarching tweaks we plan on experimenting with during the Public Test phase. There are some mechanics that, over time, haven’t performed quite as we envisioned. We'll be making some changes in 2.1 to help address these concerns.
Dexterity & Survivability:
A major change is coming to Dexterity to benefit Demon Hunters and Monks. Each point of Dexterity will grant 1 point of Armor instead of Dodge chance. Dodge isn’t as reliable as Armor or Resistances and doesn’t protect you from some of the most dangerous monster affixes like Plagued or Thunderstorm. In light of this buff, the existing passives that grant 30% of your Dexterity as Armor (Seize the Initiative and Awareness) will be completely redesigned.
Healing:
The next change will be to Healing. Currently, Healing provided by gear isn't very valuable because you receive the vast amount of your healing from Health Globes. During internal testing, we discovered that as you reached higher Greater Rift levels, you really wanted more of your healing to come from your gear in order to survive. To facilitate this, we are reducing the amount of healing Health Globes provide, but buffing Life on Hit and Life Regeneration on gear to compensate. This change should make a more consistent experience when you turn up the difficulty (or reach a higher tier in a Greater Rift) in situations where you’re not killing as quickly and actually require the increased Healing.

The Cesspools:

While Seasons and Greater Rifts are definitely taking center stage with this patch, we're also providing some additional content to add more variety and flavor to your Adventure Mode exploration. Originally designed as the sewers of Westmarch, we weren't quite able to include the Cesspools in the list of playable environments in Reaper of Souls by the time the expansion launched.

 

Expect to encounter (and slaughter) a variety of creatures in the Cesspools!

Still, we loved the look and feel of this festering, dank underworld and we've spent some time polishing it up for use in Nephalem Rifts and Greater Rifts. You'll have a chance to spawn Cesspool levels while in a Rift, and we hope you enjoy this new randomized landscape! We may have additional treats on the horizon, but let's not get too Greedy. . . . You'll have your hands on the PTR soon enough to find out more.
We are incredibly excited to share patch 2.1.0 with you and can't wait to see your reactions once the PTR goes live. Be sure let us know what you think of the changes and features, and send any bug reports our way as you explore Seasons, Greater Rifts, Leaderboards, and more. What new feature are you most excited about? Are you going to climb the Greater Rifts leaderboard, or will you race to be the first to complete as many Conquests as you can? Let us know in the comments below, and we'll see you soon™ on the PTR!

Warlords of Draenor - Active Mana Regeneration
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Source)
As you may have noticed, the most recent update to the patch notes included the removal of the Active Mana Regeneration, and I'd like to take a moment to explain that a bit.

First, I'd like to dispel some misconceptions about what Active Mana Regeneration was. Due to the similar name, and how it had its own section in the patch notes, some people were under the impression that it was as significant a feature as Active Mitigation was for tanks; that was not the case. It was quite minor in its impact. We found, based on internal testing, that in order to make it impactful, we'd have to make it much, *much* stronger. As it was, most forms of it were only worth using when you had mismanaged your Mana and were trying to recover. Based on its low and unintuitive usage, we decided to remove it.

Now, a fair question to ask is, “Why not just tune it stronger, so it *is* worth using?” We considered that heavily. There is probably a design where most of your Mana regeneration comes from active sources, and all healers spend a significant portion of their time and ability usage actively regenerating their Mana. However, that is a gigantic change to healer gameplay, for all healers. Many existing healers would not enjoy that style of gameplay, and we're not even sure that it'd be better gameplay for a new player anyway. Overall, we think that, while that option does seem like it could potentially function, it would not be good for the game.

So where does that leave healers for Mana management? Rest assured, healers will still have significant control over their Mana. The primary method for doing that is through spell selection. We've tuned healers such that they have a mixture of high efficiency and high throughput heals. If you maximize efficiency, you’ll actually be spending less than you regenerate (as of about blue dungeon gear), so your Mana bar will actually be going up. The way you’ll spend that Mana is through high throughput heals, which will let you burn more mana for more throughput. As your gear improves, you'll get more and more Spirit, so that your Mana refills faster while casting efficient heals. And that additional Mana will translate into more and more of your spell casts being high throughput ones, as you get better gear. The key, as it relates to Active Mana Regeneration, is that if you find yourself at 30% Mana, and the boss is still at 50% health, you do have something to do to catch up: lean more on your efficient heals, until you catch up. You'll never end up in a situation where you run OOM and are unable to cast anything. Also important to note, all healers have some way to deal minor damage with no Mana cost now, so that they have something to do when there is no healing needed, if you're the type of player that feels compelled to always be casting something.

Warlords of Draenor Ability Pruning
One of our primary goals for ability pruning is to clean out things you rarely use, but still want to have keybound. Scare Beast, Hibernate, etc are perfect examples of those sorts of abilities. They're rarely (if ever) used in PvE, and only really usable in extremely niche cases in PvP. But you still want it sitting on your action bar, and filling out one of your keybinds, for those rare occasions in which you actually do want to use it.

It's important to remember that the point of ability pruning isn't to just get rid of spells for the sake of getting rid of spells. We want to free up action bar and keybind space. If we remove something that's kind of cool, but you wouldn't have bound (or maybe not even on your action bar), then all we've really done is removed something that's kind of cool. There is some value in clearing up extraneous stuff in the spellbook, but we don't want to remove anything fun to achieve that. Eagle Eye doesn't take up keybind or even action bar space for the vast majority of players, but it's still fun to use, even if you're just clicking on the icon in your spellbook to cast it.

Death Strike remains for all. Blood Strike is gone for all. (Celestalon)

Death Strike is a wast of resources for Frost/Unholy. Even in solo play. VR =/= DS
No, it's not, especially with baseline Dark Succor. (Celestalon)

Hunter
Kinda noticed the new RFK Blind Hunter Bat Model. Will Hunters be able to tame it? x:
Yes! (Muffinus)

Mage
Does the +5% of Enhanced Pyrotechnics get improved by Critical Mass?
Yes. (Celestalon)
Can I assume the same for the +15% from Improved Pyroblast?
Yep. (Celestalon)

Priest
Glyph of shadow and glyph of stars, are they here to stay?
Yes. (Celestalon)

Warlock
Will MS generate emberbits for destruction? Fury for demo?
Nope. (Celestalon)

PvP
I'd be very surprised if they were more then a passing craze; heavily used to start, then trickling down to lightly utilized ;-)
We're attaching rewards to them (honor, strongboxes) and they're solo queue. I expect more people will do skirmish then rated. (holinka)

Solo queue is also working as well.
The whole point is a more casual approach to arena. Playing alone or with friends. (holinka)
So does solo queue only face other solo queue? Otherwise it's an automatic disadvantage versus pre-made
Skirmish Matchmaking will never be perfectly balanced. I suggest rated if that's what you want. (holinka)
feel like it would be more fun to play with all randoms than to face an OP comp on Skype. I suggest rated if you want to group up.
I think you're missing the intent of skirmishes. It isn't for serious competition, it's for fun. Fast queues are most important. (holinka)

why are player health pools still so high. saw tank at 100 with 272k. by end of exp numbers will be back to normal. fail squish?
Player health in particular was squished by less to allow us to get rid of resilience. All other numbers are much more readable (WatcherDev)

Reputation / Questing
I have noticed that rare spawns turn gold on normal after being defeated and no longer give good loot. Only kill once?
Those aren't really what I'd call "rare" spawns. They're events you encounter while exploring, with a one-time reward. (WatcherDev)

Gorgrond Zone Preview i Blue Teme

Gorgrond Zone Preview
Gorgrond je nova zona predstavljena u severnom delu Draenora. To je kuća Blackhanda i njihovog Blackrock clan orkova koji služe kao kovači Iron Hordi. U ovoj zaoni nalazi se Blackrock Foundry Raid istanca. Posle Draenor eksplozije Gorgrond je transformisan u Blade's Edge Mountains.

Currently, yes. (Celestalon)

Any chance you could allow potions to not break stealth so it is easier to pre-pot and get an opener?
Yes. (Celestalon)

Death Knight
Without Heart Strike, what's going to make Blood DKs attacks different from Unholy in WoD?
I don't really understand. They have hardly any overlap at all. (Celestalon)
Aside from the passive fx of blood, using Pest and Death Strike, and filling with Death Coil doesn't really seem dif from UH
Death Coil is similar. Pestilence is shared but used in completely different ways. Everything else is completely different. (Celestalon)

Hunter
Do Aimed Shot MultiStrikes benefit from Careful Aim? Is this behavior consistent with similar circumstances?
Yes. Yes. (Celestalon)

Rogue
any chance that you combine recuperate n slice into a single spell to facilitate use rogue finishmoves, giving us a bit of surv
It's a good choice that you have to make between offense and defense. (holinka)

Warlock
are you taking out the warlock green fire quest in 6.0?
Nope. (WatcherDev)
And you get a Feat of Strength in 6.0 for having completed it before then?
Before Draenor unlocks, yes. (WatcherDev)

Art
With Garrosh gone, why are most of Horde buildings still following this horrendous "Ten thousand iron spike" idea?
Garrosh didn't invent spikes, WC3 orc farm was spiky before it was cool. (Muffinus)
But, not iron buildings, steel spikes, dried molten rooftops.. It was made with tents, wooden spikes... Tribal - not metallic.
Consider it the industrial revolution for the horde (Muffinus)

Warlords of Draenor Stats
Is Versatility not the best stat for fistweavers?
Not the best healing throughput stat; it doesn't double-dip. (Celestalon)

(1/2) If an ability critically hits and procs MS, does MS do 30% of crit or 30% of normal hit dmg. Seems that crit is the only
The damage (including crit or not) of the initial hit has no impact of the damage of the multistrike hit. Separate damage roll (Celestalon)

How will haste effect our GCDs in WoD? With OP gone our quick filler at 1 sec will make us feel clunky =/
Haste reduces your GCD. (Celestalon)

PvE
what gets me is, JP acquisition is TOO LOW pre nerf, wtf?
When is the last time either of you direct-queued (NOT random) for a Normal mode scenario? (WatcherDev)

when i tried grinding JP for heirlooms, I gave up quickly because of high costs, and low JP rates.
How long ago was that? Nowadays you get 100 JP per individual dungeon boss. (WatcherDev)

is it me or doesn't the tentacle showing up mean its part of the old gods
The Twilight's Hammer cultists are deeply connected to the Old Gods, and they're the ones who occupy BFD. (WatcherDev)

Will revamped BFD/RFD/RFK have level 100 H/CM versions, or just their existing low-level ones?
Low-level only; just showing some love to a few dungeons that felt a bit dated. (WatcherDev)

PvP
With all the requests for skirmishes through the years you all better play the ever loving crap out of them now that they're in game. (holinka)

Thought you guys were looking to improve PvP participation. Making the sets identical feels really lazy.
I love how people throw the word "lazy" around without any insight into how hard people are working. (holinka)

are we really going back to where the PvP gear is the same exact model as the PvE gear in WoD? If so why?
Armor sets have lost a lot of aspirational value at the high end. We want higher tier content to reward cooler looking gear. (holinka)
So to clarify the tier 17 armor sets are also the season 16 PvP armor sets?
Yes, but Mythic looks better than Normal/Heroic and Elite looks better than normal conquest. Also, it's Warlords Season 1. (holinka)

Any plan to add some missing old school pvp stuff? (first cata set, boot belt bracers,LK pvp and MoP weapon)?thx for answr
We'd like to, just a lot of other work that feels more important. (holinka)

.since it's been a bit over a week, any news on how the free faction changed has been working so far?
My understanding is that there hasn't been any significant problems with the process. (holinka)

So because Mythic difficulty gets different models, PvP gets gimped with re-used PvE models now? Come on
By your logic, you could say because Elite gear gets different models, PvE gets gimped with re-used PvP models. (holinka)
PvP is not getting the short end of the stick. Higher skill/commitment is being further rewarded in PvP & PvE. (holinka)
Mythic difficulty AND Elite PvP gear gets different models. This is a really strange attitude you're coming from (holinka)
I would rather see PvP get different models and Elite get a recolor of those models instead of PvE>PvP recolor.
that's what we have now and it's underwhelming. (holinka)
Better rewards for top players is awesome and i applaud it, but recolored PvE sets for 95%> of all PvPers is also underwhelming.
Calling them "recolored PvE sets" is a huge mis-characterization. (holinka)
I feel like this could use some clarification. Mythic and elite pvp use same model/different color or no?
different color (holinka)

is Ashran playable in the alpha yet? If not will you let us know when it is? WTB Ashran blog!!!
It isn't ready for public testing yet...but we're about to do our largest internal test to date. Does that help? (holinka)

I mean, do you plan to squish the entire thing more if necessary ?
We wanted to shrink base resilience down to 0% which meant inflating health pools more than originally expected. (holinka)

Is pvp power necessary with different pvp and pve ilvls?
Nope (holinka)

Reputation / Questing
Ah I still have so much to explore in Frostfire. Hit 92, think 4/6 story done, but so many things to still hunt down!
Exploratory gaming is huge for us this round, hope you're finding it fun! We're not nearly done though >=] (Muffinus)

when my pet kills a mob on its own, I don't get loot.. will this ever be changed? really annoying when soloing old stuff
Unlikely to change that; it'd expose exploits. (Celestalon)
is that the same reason it happens with other "non active" sources; lightning shield, etc?
Yes. Damage that you can do with no input should not count for loot rights. Prevents afk farming. (Celestalon)

World
Yes there are rare spawns, lots of them, more than ever before! (Muffinus)
If they are common, can they be rare?
Levelup rares are meant to be encountered, endgame are more rare. (Muffinus)
Currently in alpha once a rare is killed its respawn isnt rare to that character anymore. Is this what you meant by "encountered"?
Yep! You always get the reward the first time, no need to farm it for loot/XP (plenty others to hunt), visually represented. (Muffinus)
A lot of the alpha rares need their "no-tap" flag set, they should all operate like Timeless Isle rares. (Muffinus)

Warlords of Draenor Alpha Patch Notes Update - 13 Jun

  • Balance of Power has been removed. A new level-100 talent with the same name has been added.

Secondary Stat Attunements
A new concept that we’re introducing is each specialization having an attunement to a particular secondary stat. These take the form of a passive ability that grants a 5% increase to the amount of a specific secondary stat gained. This provides a good starting point for where to focus your secondary stats. Usually, it will be your highest throughput stat (not counting Spirit for Healers, and Bonus Armor for Tanks, which is an optimal secondary stat in most cases). There are exceptions, and raw throughput may not even be the biggest concern in some situations. Treat this as a guideline, not a rule, about which secondary stat to favor.

  • New passive abilities granting a 5% bonus to specific secondary stat bonuses received from equipped items have been added for all specializations.
  • Death Knight
    • Blood: Multistrike
    • Frost: Haste
    • Unholy: Multistrike
  • Druid
    • Balance: Mastery
    • Feral: Critical Strike

    • Demonology: Mastery
    • Destruction: Critical Strike
  • Warrior
    • Arms: Mastery
    • Fury: Critical Strike
    • Protection: Mastery

Active Mana Regeneration (Section Removed)
Another part of the changes to healing is providing a way for them to better manage their mana. There are ways to spend more mana for more healing but we’re also adding methods for healers to trade extra time, healing, or more mana to use later in a fight when they really need it.
  • Druid
    • Innervate has been redesigned to now have a 2-second cast time with no cooldown, and restore 2.5% of the Druid's maximum mana every 4 seconds for 8 seconds. Spending any mana on a healing spell will cancel this effect.
  • Monk
  • Paladin
    • Divine Plea has been redesigned to be instant cast ability with no cooldown, and consume 3 Holy Power to immediately regain 7% of the Paladin's maximum mana.
  • Priest
    • Atonement is no longer triggered by Penance.
    • Chakra: Chastise in addition to existing effects, now also causes Smite and Holy Fire to restore 0.75% of the Priest's maximum mana each time they are cast instead of costing mana.
    • Penance now also refunds 1.1% of the Priest’s maximum mana each time it deals damage.
  • Shaman
    • Telluric Currents is now a passive ability for Restoration Shaman and causes Lightning Bolt to restore 1.25% of the Shaman's maximum mana each time it is cast instead of costing mana.
    • Glyph of Telluric Currents has been removed.

Ability Pruning
We attempt to prune abilities with the intent to reduce the amount of keybind/macro bloat and merging abilities that served a similar purpose but are otherwise redundant together.

  • Death Knight
  • Druid
    • Barkskin is now available only to Guardian Druids, and no longer provides pushback protection, but its base cooldown has been reduced to 30 seconds.
    • Entangling Roots is now available only to Balance and Restoration Druids.
    • Faerie Fire is now available only to Feral and Guardian Druids.
    • Innervate has been removed (again). is now available only to Restoration Druids. Mana costs for Druids have been adjusted accordingly.
    • Hibernate has been removed.
    • Hurricane is now available only to Balance and Restoration Druids.
    • Lacerate is now available only to Guardian Druids.
    • Leader of the Pack no longer restores Mana.
      • Mana regeneration for Feral and Guardian Druids has been increased by 100%.
    • Lifebloom can no longer stack. Its healing has been increased to compensate.
    • Maim is now available only to Feral Druids.
    • Maul is now available only to Guardian Druids.
    • Might of Ursoc is now available only to Guardian Druids, and no longer automatically activates Bear Form.
    • Moonfire is now available only to Balance and Restoration Druids.
    • Nature’s Grasp has been removed.
    • Nature’s Swiftness is now available only to Restoration Druids.
    • Nourish has been removed.
    • Omen of Clarity (Feral) now affects all Druid spells and abilities.
    • Owlkin Frenzy has been removed.
    • Rake is now only available to Feral Druids and also stuns the target for 4 seconds when used while stealthed.
      • Pounce has been removed. Abilities which modified Pounce now modify Rake instead.
    • Regrowth now has a duration of 12 seconds (up from 6 second), but no longer refreshes itself on targets below 50% health.

Buffs and Debuffs
All specializations provide some common buffs and debuffs. These are important to the game because they encourage cooperation, make you stronger when you work together with others, and promote Raid composition diversity. However, we saw room to revise these buffs and debuffs. In addition to the above changes, we revised which buffs and debuffs are provided by Hunter pets. Please see the Hunter Pet Abilities section for a full list of changes.

Two new stats have been added that benefitted all players. Also added were three new debuffs (Weakened Armor, Physical Vulnerability, and Magic Vulnerability) that each benefitted only half of the group. While that could be interesting, the two physical debuffs were redundant, and felt that the two new stats would be better suited as raid buffs. So, we made that replacement.

  • Weakened Armor, Physical Vulnerability, and Magic Vulnerability
    • Physical Vulnerability increases physical damage taken by 5% (up from 4%).
    • The following abilities no longer apply the Weakened Armor effect.
    • Death Knight (Frost): Brittle Bones has been removed.
    • Death Knight (Unholy): Ebon Plaguebringer no longer causes Physical Vulnerability.
    • Druid: Faerie Fire longer applies Weakened Armor. now applies Physical Vulnerability, increasing Physical damage taken by 5% for 30 seconds.
    • Hunter Pets: Tallstrider: Dust Cloud, Raptor: Tear Armor (See the Hunter Pet Abilities section.)
    • Paladin (Retribution): Judgments of the Bold no longer causes Physical Vulnerability.
    • Rogue: Expose Armor no longer applies Weakened Armor.
    • Rogue: Master Poisoner has been removed.
    • Warlock: Curse of the Elements has been removed.
    • Warrior: Sunder Armor no longer applies Weakened Armor.
    • Warrior (Arms, Fury): Colossus Smash no longer causes Physical Vulnerability.
    • Warrior (Protection): Devastate no longer applies Weakened Armor.
  • Versatility
    • Death Knight (Frost, Unholy): Unholy Aura now also provides 3% Versatility.
    • Druid: Mark of the Wild now also provides 3% Versatility.
    • Paladin (Retribution): Sanctity Aura is a new passive ability for Retribution Paladins which grants 3% Versatility to the Paladin and all allies within 100 yards.
    • Warrior (Arms, Fury): Inspiring Presence is a new passive ability for Arms and Fury Warriors which grants 3% Versatility to the Warrior and all allies within 100 yards.
  • Multistrike
    • Monk (Windwalker): Windflurry is a new passive ability for Windwalker Monks which grants 5% Multistrike to the Monk and all allies within 100 yards.
    • Priest (Shadow): Mind Quickening now also grants 5% Multistrike.
    • Rogue: Swiftblade’s Cunning now also grants 5% Multistrike.
    • Warlock: Dark Intent now grants 5% Multistrike instead of 10% Stamina.
      • Blood Pact is a new passive ability for Warlocks which grants 10% Stamina to the Warlock and all allies within 10 yards.

Weakened Blows was a debuff that mattered almost exclusively to tanks, and that every tank automatically applied. We removed the debuff and reduced creature damage to compensate.

The following abilities have been removed.
  • Hunter Pets, Bear: Demoralizing Roar; Carrion Bird: Demoralizing Screech (See the Hunter Pet Abilities section.)

The Cast Speed Slow was a debuff type that mattered almost exclusively to PvP, and made combat much less fun for casters in addition to encouraging the use of instant-cast spells. We decided that it was best to remove casting speed debuffs.

The following abilities have been removed.
  • Hunter Pets, Core Hound: Lava Breath; Fox: Tailspin; Goat: Trample; Sporebat: Spore Cloud (See the Hunter Pet Abilities section.)

As part of a push to combine the different types of Haste in the game as much as possible, we merged Spell Haste and Attack Speed into just Haste, which benefits everyone.

  • Spell Haste and Attack Speed
    • The following abilities now provide a 5% increase to melee, ranged, and spell Haste to all Party and Raid members (previously they only increased spell Haste).
      • Druid (Balance): Moonkin Form
      • Hunter Pet (Sporebat): Energizing Spores (See the Hunter Pet Abilities section.)
    • The following Hunter pet abilities have been removed.
      • Hyena: Cackling Howl; Serpent: Serpent's Swiftness (See the Hunter Pet Abilities section.)

Some classes received new abilities to provide some of harder-to-find buffs/debuffs, increasing their utility to the Party or Raid.
  • Other
    • The following abilities now also increase magic damage taken by the target by 5% for 15 seconds.

Instant Cast Heals
  • Priest
    • Divine Star now has a 1.5-second cast time (up from instant cast), but can be cast while moving.

Tank Vengeance and Resolve
Then, to keep tank DPS meaningful, we'll be raising their damage, since it would be meager with no Vengeance Attack Power (Vengeance accounted for 70-90% of a tank's damage on high-tank-damage fights in Mists). To do that, we're increasing the damage of several prominent tank abilities, as well as having tanks also gain increased Attack Power from Mastery and Bonus Armor, in addition to the stat’s existing benefits. For plate-wearing Tank specializations, Riposte has been redesigned to convert Critical Strike into Parry, a defensive stat. That also helps keep secondary stats balanced in offensive value for them.
  • General
    • Bladed Armor is a new passive ability for Blood Death Knights, Guardian Druids, Brewmaster Monks, Protection Paladins, and Protection Warriors.
      • Bladed Armor increases Attack Power by 100% of the character's Bonus Armor.

Tooltip Clarity
Being able to quickly understand what an ability does by glancing at the tooltip is of paramount importance to learn how to play with a given class or specialization. We’ve taken an extensive look at the tooltips for all class abilities, and revised them to be as clear and concise as possible.

In some rare cases, we’ve removed mention of niche information that we don’t think is needed. If that's the case, please note that a change to the ability's tooltip does not mean that functionality has changed. If the change in question is not mentioned in the Patch Notes, there has been no change to the ability.
  • Tooltips for nearly all class abilities have been revised for increased clarity.

Self-Sustainability
Another area of gameplay that we polished is how characters are able to sustain their own health, primarily when frequently killing enemies, such as in solo questing.
  • Death Knight
    • Dark Succor is now a passive ability learned by all Death Knights at level 60 (instead of being a glyph).
  • Druid
  • Hunter
    • Kill Shot now heals the Hunter for 15% of maximum health if it kills the target.
    • Survivalist is a new passive ability learned by Survival Hunters at level 10:
      • Survivalist: After killing a target, the Hunter gains 15% health over 10 seconds.
  • Monk
  • Paladin
  • Priest
  • Rogue
    • Recuperate now heals for 5% of maximum health per tick (up from 3%).
  • Shaman
  • Warrior
  • Warlock
    • Drain Life now heals for 1.5% of maximum health per tick (up from 1.0%).
    • Harvest Life now increases the healing from Drain Life to 3% of maximum health per tick (up from 2.5%).

Glyphs
At level 25, the following Glyphs are automatically learned by characters of the appropriate class:

At level 60, the following Glyphs are automatically learned by characters of the appropriate class:
  • Dark Succor, Shifting Presences

Class Changes

Death Knight
  • Rune Tap now grants an absorption shield equal to 30% of your missing health. It also now has 2 charges, with a 30-second recharge time.

Druid
The loss of Symbiosis (see Ability Pruning above) will primarily impact druids’ survival, as many of the abilities received through Symbiosis were defensive cooldowns. To compensate for that change, and for the removal of Barkskin for non-Guardian Druids, we buffed Survival Instincts significantly and the ability is now available for all specializations.
  • Survival Instincts is now available to all Druid specializations. Survival Instincts now reduces damage taken by 70% (up from 50%) with a 2-minute cooldown (down from 3 minutes), and for Feral and Guardian specializations can have up to 2 charges (up from 1 charge).

Guardian Changes
  • Mangle now generates 30 Rage, and its cooldown is reduced by Haste.

Feral Changes
Feral Druids received one major change, and few tweaks beyond what's been mentioned above in Ability Pruning and Facing Requirements. Combo Points are now stored "on the player", meaning that when you switch targets, any accumulated Combo Points remain with you. Pounce was buffed significantly, in order to bring it up to par with Ravage.Primal Fury was changed to let it affect area attacks as well. Critical strike chance of Ferocious Bite was changed in order to increase the value of Critical Strike. Glyph of Savage Roar was reworked to better achieve its intended effect.

  • Mangle now generates 15 Rage (up from 5 Rage), and its cooldown is reduced by Haste.
  • Pounce damage has been increased by 100%.
  • Ferocious Bite now has double the normal chance to critically strike against bleeding targets (instead of having an additional 25% chance to critically strike).

Balance Rebalanced
  • Astral Showers no longer increases direct dmg. (Source)
  • Balance Energy system has been redesigned. Balance Energy is a bar that cycles back and forth between Lunar and Solar sides, like night and day, with a 40 second cycle time (from Lunar to Solar and back to Lunar).
  • Moonfire now has a base duration of 20 seconds (up from 14 seconds), but is no longer extended by Starfire and Starsurge critical strikes.
  • Sunfire now has a base duration of 20 seconds (up from 14 seconds), but is no longer extended by Wrath and Starsurge critical strikes. Additionally, Sunfire is no longer its own spell. Sunfire replaces Moonfire on the action bar whenever Balance Energy is on the Solar side. Enemies may still suffer from both Moonfire and Sunfire’s periodic damage components simultaneously.
  • Astral Showers calls upon greater Lunar and Solar energy to permanently empower the Druid's Moonfire and Sunfire spells.
    • Moonfire's initial damage is increased by 100%, and The duration of it's periodic damage effect duration is increased by 100%.
    • Sunfire's initial damage is increased by 100%, and its periodic damage effect is now applied to all enemies within 5 yards of the target.
  • Shooting Stars now adds 1 full charge of Starsurge and Starfall when it triggers, and now has a 5% chance to trigger when the most recent Moonfire or andSunfire deals periodic damage. This chance is doubled on critical strikes.
  • Celestial Alignment has been redesigned.
  • Euphoria has been removed. A new level-100 talent with the same name has been added.
  • Equinox has been replaced with a new talent, Balance of Power.
  • Sunfall has been replaced with a new talent, Euphoria.
    • Euphoria grants the Druid a deeper connection to the stars, causing Balance Energy to cycle 50% faster. Additionally, Lunar and Solar Empowerments also reduce the cast time of affected spells by 20%.
  • Several Glyphs and Draenor Perks will be redesigned in a future build, and so are currently TBD.
    • Glyph of Omens
    • Glyph of Sudden Eclipse
    • Empowered Starfall
    • Enhanced Mushrooms
    • Enhanced Starsurge
    • Enhanced Storms

Restoration Changes
Genesis and Wild Mushroom: Bloom fill a similar need for burst healing, so Wild Mushroom: Bloom has been removed, leaving Wild Mushroom to focus on the Efflorescence effect.

  • Genesis has been redesigned.
    • Genesis now consumes all of the Druid's Rejuvenation effects on party or raid members within 60 yards and applies the Genesis effect to them instead. Genesis heals the target for an amount equal to the remaining healing from the consumed Rejuvenation effects over 3 seconds. Healing from Genesis counts toward Wild Mushroom as if it was from Rejuvenation.
  • Wild Mushroom (Restoration) now has a 30-second cooldown, lasts for 30 seconds, provides periodic healing to nearby allies, and no longer collects Rejuvenation overhealing.
  • Swiftmend no longer causes Efflorescence. Instead, Wild Mushroom (Restoration) now causes Efflorescence to appear at the mushroom’s location.

And the Druid changes are capped off by merging Glyph of Stampede effects into Glyph of Stampeding Roar.

Hunter

Burst Damage Cooldowns
Each specialization received a revision to the burst-damage-cooldowns that they have access to. All specializations now have one burst-damage-cooldown available baseline, and can add to that through talent choices.

Beast Mastery Hunters retain Bestial Wrath. Rapid Fire is a good fit for Marksmanship, and we improved it. Survival opts to focus on sustained damage without burst cooldowns. However, if the situation calls for a burst-damage-cooldown, there are a few available via talents. we wanted to both increase the prominence of their traps, and give them a new damage cooldown. So, a new trap called Bear Trap has been created to fit that role. Note that Bear Trap's base cooldown can be reduced by other passive abilities and perks, such that it has roughly a 2 minute-cooldown afterwards.

  • Bear Trap is a new ability for Survival Hunters.
    • Bear Trap places a trap with duration of 1 minute that immobilizes the first enemy that triggers it for 8 seconds and deals heavy bleed damage over 20 seconds. Damage from other sources may break the immobilization effect. The ability has a 4 minute cooldown.
  • Careful Aim now also provides its effect against all targets when Rapid Fire is active, and increases critical strike chance by 60% (down from 75%).

Hunter Pet Abilities
  • Increased Multistrike buff Magic Damage Taken debuff: Basilisk, Bat, Chimaera, Core Hound, Dragonhawk, Fox, Rhino, Wind Serpent
  • Increased versatility buff Physical Damage Taken debuff: Bird of Prey, Boar, Porcupine, Ravager, Rhino, Worm
  • An ability that increases dodge chance of the pet by 30% for 10 seconds: Bat, Fox, Monkey


Mage
Presence of Mind was extremely strong for instant CC, which we wanted to curtail. Rather than completely remove Presence of Mind or make it not affect CC abilities, we made it a base Arcane spell, where we don't expect that it will be a problem, since Arcane has less CC than the other Mage specs already. In its place, we've added a new talent, Evanesce. It may seem out of place on a movement-focused talent row at first. In practice, we expect that the similarity will bear out as Mages use it instead of moving away from avoidable damage.

The right level-75 Talent slot is now filled by a new Talent that varies by specialization.
  • Blast Wave: Cause an explosion of fiery force around the target enemy or ally, dealing Fire damage to all enemies within 8 yards, and dazing them, reducing their movement speed by 70% for 4 seconds. If the primary target is an enemy, they take 100% increased damage. Replaces Frost Nova. Instant cast ability with a 25-second cooldown and 2 charges.
  • Ice Nova: Cause a whirl of icy wind around the target enemy or ally, dealing Frost damage to all enemies within 8 yards, and freezing them for 4 seconds. If the primary target is an enemy, they take 100% increased damage. Replaces Frost Nova. Instant cast ability with a 20-second cooldown and 2 charges.
  • Supernova: Cause a pulse of Arcane energy around the target enemy or ally, dealing Arcane damage to all enemies within 8 yards, and knocking them into the air. If the primary target is an enemy, they take 100% increased damage. Replaces Frost Nova. Instant cast ability with a 25-second cooldown and 2 charges.

Monk

Mistweaver Changes

Paladin

Holy Changes
We adjusted the critical strike chance of Holy Shock, to increase the value of Critical Strike for Holy Paladins.

  • Holy Shock now has twice the normal chance to critically strike (instead of having an additional 25% chance to critically strike).

Miscellaneous
We also revised how Eternal Flame interacts with Holy Power, and allowed it to once again trigger Illuminated Healing. One big change for Retribution that isn't mentioned here is the removal of Inquisition (see Ability Pruning), which will have a notable effect on their rotation.

  • Eternal Flame’s periodic healing effect has been changed. Its duration now scales with Holy Power, instead of its healing. Its effect at 3 Holy Power remains unchanged.
  • Illuminated Healing can once again be triggered by Eternal Flame.

Priest

Level-90 Talents and Atonement
To get back to a balanced place, we've reapplied the AoE caps to the level-90 Talents, making them consistent with all other AoE heals, and reduced their effectiveness across the board. We’ve compensated for this in the tuning of Priest baseline heals.

Holy Changes

Shadow Changes
The cooldown of Mind Blast has also been adjusted to make Haste more valuable for Shadow, and removes Haste breakpoints.
  • Mind Blast’s cooldown is now reduced by haste, but its base cooldown is now 9 seconds (up from 8 seconds).

Talent Revisions
Several talents were split into different versions by specialization. We revised the effectiveness of some of these talents to better balance talent choices on their row. We also swapped the Level-15 and Level-60 talent rows so players are presented with core Priest themed abilities earlier in the leveling process.
  • Divine Insight’s effects have been split based on specialization.
  • From Darkness, Comes Light has been split into Surge of Light for Discipline and Holy, and Surge of Darkness for Shadow for Shadow.
    • Surge of Darkness now has a maximum of 3 charges (up from 2).
  • Power Infusion now grants 25% Haste (up from 20%), but no longer increases damage (down from 5%).

Miscellaneous
We removed the Mana generation from Shadowfiend, in order to simplify it to being a burst-damage-cooldown.

  • Inner Focus: No longer provides immunity to Dispels, Interrupts, and Silence. This effect will be returning as a Major Glyph.

Shaman

Elemental and Enhancement Changes
  • Fire Nova now has a cooldown of 4.5 second (up from 4.0 seconds).
  • Flurry has been redesigned. Melee haste effects now reduce the global cooldown and cooldowns of Stormstrike, Lava Lash, Shocks, Unleash Elements, and Fire Nova.
  • Lava Lash now has a cooldown of 10.5 seconds (up from 10 seconds).
  • Stormstrike now has a cooldown of 7.5 seconds (down from 8 seconds).
  • Earthquake damage has been increased by 36%.
  • Frost Shock’s damage has been reduced by 50%.
  • Magma Totem’s damage has been increased by 100%.
  • Unleash Frost no longer deals direct damage, but now always snares the target by 70% (rather than only when the target is already snared by a Frost spell).

Warrior

Burst Damage Cooldowns
  • Heroic Throw is now a high-threat ability, generating 300% extra threat, has a 6-second cooldown (down from 30 seconds), but now has a 15 yard minimum range.

Haste for Warriors

Talent Changes
We adjusted the effects of a few talents in order to make them more competitive with the talents on their row.

Blizzard Radi na Auto-Pickup Gemova i Crafting Materijala
Grimiku je odgovorio na sugestije igrača da se implementira auto-pickup gemova i crafting materija. Blizzard uveliko radi na implementaciji takvog sistema.

I'm sure everyone in the community will agree to this one.
It would be fairly easy; remove them as inventory items and make the collection system similar to that of the gold and rift shards'.
/e
I'll add onto this list as long as I can.
2) Have an Icon next to all teammates using Unity.
3) Give the ability to inspect teammates even if they are in a different area but still in your game. Its silly that I have to go to the Profile first, then hit Heroes and then I have the option to Inspect. Too many steps.
This is a good suggestion, and it's actually been something that we've been planning to add since just before Reaper of Souls launched. It's still on the way, and subject to change, but here's what we had to say about it originally in case any of you haven't heard. 
I should point out that we won't be making any adjustments to the crafting resource management system in patch 2.1. The ideas we have about possible changes to crafting material storage and currency are just that: ideas. They're still subject to heavy amounts of change and iteration, and are not something we've yet decided to implement!
On the whole, we agree with your feedback and are currently working on some different ways to help streamline the process of picking up, storing, and using crafting resources.
Let me preface what I’m about to say with the caveat that any changes we make to crafting material management at this point would come after Reaper of Souls ships. With that in mind, here’s a few ideas we’re tinkering with to help get you thinking about some of the cool possibilities: 
All crafting materials would be moved to a currency-style storage in the UI. Think something similar to Blood Shards.All crafting materials would become auto pickup, except for LEGENDARY crafting material. (Legendary crafting material would still be automatically stored as a currency, but players must click on it to pick it up.)All crafters would pull crafting materials from this storage area for recipes.Crafting materials that the player doesn’t currently own would appear in grey text with a 0 counter.Players could mouse over the icons of all crafting material to get the full tooltip of the item. This includes greyed out ones.Currently, we do not intend to store gems in this way because it would make socketing items feel clunky.

Talador Zone Preview

Talador je nova zona u Warlords of Draenor koja se nalazi južnom centru Draenor kontinenta. To je Draenei zona, koja bi postala Terokkar Forest u originalnom vremenu (Outland). Ovde možemo pogledati kako je nekad izgledao Shattrath City, medjutim on je napadnut od strane Iron Horde, južno od grada očekivano nalazimo Auchindounn, pre njegovog uništenja.

Sa divljenjem imali smo prilike da pogledamo kako izgleda Zangarra, mesto gde ćemo verovatno naići na Khadgara.

 
Tu je i Teron'gor (Orc Warlorck). On je bio sluga Gul'dan-a i član Shadow Council. U glavnoj vremenskoj liniji on je promenio ime na Teron Gorefiend kako je postao Death Knight.
