Patch 10.2.0: Guardians of the Dream is the second content patch of Dragonflight. It was released on November 7, 2023. It's the last major patch of Dragonflight.

New zones: The Emerald Dream[]

New world boss: Aurostor the Hibernating[]

Aurostor follows a strict regiment of sleep. Fyrakk's assault on the Emerald Dream has disturbed this cycle, rousing the Furbolg Wild God from his slumber too soon. In a sleep deprived state, this raging Wild God attacks any passersby in an attempt to wear himself out.

New raid: Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope[]

Having been carefully nurtured within the Emerald Dream, Amirdrassil is preparing to bloom and cross into Azeroth. But the fate of the new world tree cannot be secured until Azeroth's champions come together to face Fyrakk and his molten allies, before he devours the heart of Amirdrassil and bathes the world in flame.

  • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope features nine boss encounters: Gnarlroot, Igira the Cruel, Volcoross, Council of Dreams, Larodar, Keeper of the Flame, Nymue, Weaver of the Cycle, Smolderon, Tindral Sageswift, Seer of the Flame, and Fyrakk the Blazing.
  • Raid testing begins this Thursday, September 14. View the PTR raid testing schedule for more details.

Classes[]

Death Knight[]

  • Blood
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (2) Set Bonus – Now triggers from consuming Runic Power (was previously triggering on consuming Bone Shield charges).
  • Frost
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (4) Set Bonus – Chance to trigger reduced to 30% (was 40%) and reduces the cooldown of Empower Rune Weapon by 6 seconds (was 10 seconds).
    • Fixed an issue with Spell frost piercing chill [Chill Streak] not decrementing a bounce when it bounced off of the Death Knight.
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (2) Set Bonus: Set bonus buff duration increased to 12 seconds (was 10 seconds) and self bounces now also grant the damage increase.
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (2) Set Bonus: Fixed an issue with Chill Streak not bouncing to the Death Knight when used against enemies with a large hit box.
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (4) Set Bonus: Fixed an issue with self bounces not granting the bonus Rune or cooldown reduction.
  • Unholy
    • Developers' note: In Guardians of the Dream we are looking to redistribute Unholy's damage profile. Unholy has some of the highest burst in the game which means most of their damage profile needs to be tuned around that window. The goal with these changes is to reduce their 3 minute burst while increasing their rotational damage and giving more impact to their 45 second windows which should allow for an overall more healthy damage profile across a fight. We fully expect Unholy will still excel in their Gargoyle windows but they should now also have a little more impact outside of it as well.
    • Spell shadow unholyfrenzy [Unholy Assault] now increases all damage dealt by 20% (was granting 20% Haste for 20 seconds).
      • Developers' note: At the moment Unholy has access to multiple sources of Haste that can make their opener a little unwieldly which often leads to an abundance of wasted resources. While this change doesn't completely rectify the situation it should help reduce some of it.
    • Inv pet ghoul [Raise Dead] (Main Ghoul) damage increased by 10%.
    • Ability deathknight summongargoyle [Summon Gargoyle] damage reduced by 30%.
    • Ability deathknight soulreaper [Soul Reaper] damage increased by 20%.
    • Spell deathknight armyofthedead [Army of the Dead] damage of ghouls reduced by 25%.
    • Ghouls summoned by Artifactability unholydeathknight deathsembrace [Apocalypse] now have their own scaling from the Death Knight's stats separate from Army of the Dead.
      • Developers' note: This gives us the opportunity to tune Apocalypse independently of Army of the Dead and vice versa.
    • Apocalypse Ghoul damage increased by 12%.
    • Spell shadow deathcoil [Death Coil] damage increased by 12%.
    • Spell deathknight scourgestrike [Scourge Strike] damage increased by 12%.
    • Spell deathknight festering strike [Festering Strike] damage increased by 20%.
    • Festering Wound damage increased by 10%.

Demon hunter[]

  • Developers' note: Demon Hunter talent updates will be starting to roll in as they become ready, starting with Havoc tree changes in this week's PTR build. In some cases, talents may be missing or marked as a work in progress [WIP], but there are enough changes to the Havoc tree and individual talents that we'd like to get it in players' hands to begin gathering feedback. Vengeance and Class tree changes are coming soon.

Druid[]

  • Balance
    • Developers' note: In Guardians of the Dream we'd like to diversify Balance's talent builds in different content and provide more viable options. Wild Mushrooms was too expensive to compete with other talent options, so we combined it and Fungal Growth into a single point. Wild Mushrooms is now a choice node with a revised Orbital Strike that is no longer tied to Celestial Alignment – you can choose the steady damage of Wild Mushrooms or a less frequent, big burst of damage with Orbital Strike. We also removed the conflict between maintaining Rattle the Stars and maximizing Starlord – we like the “save resources and spend during Eclipse” gameplay of Balance and feel Starlord epitomizes it better.
    • Damage of all abilities increased by 2%.
    • Spell nature naturesblessing [Nature's Grace] now grants 10% Haste (was 15%).
    • Inv mount spectralwolf [Power of Goldrinn] damage increased by 20%. Moved to where Starlord was located in Fractures in Time.
    • Spell shaman measuredinsight [Starlord] has moved to where Power of Goldrinn was located in Fractures in Time.

    • Druid ability wildmushroom a [Wild Mushroom]'s damage has been reduced by 20% and the Fungal Growth damage over time has been reduced to 60% of Wild Mushroom damage (was 70%). Fungal Growth's damage over time now deals damage over 10 seconds (was 8 seconds).
    • Artifactability balancedruid moonandstars [Mastery: Astral Invocation] has been updated – Your Nature spells deal increased damage and additional damage to targets affected by Sunfire. Your Arcane spells deal increased damage and additional damage to targets affected by Moonfire.
    • Inv elemental primal mana [Friend of the Fae]'s tooltip changed to "When a Faerie Dragon is summoned, your spells deal 10% increased damage for 20 seconds."
      • Developers' note: This is a tooltip consistency change, not a functional changes. Balance spells whose tooltips say they modify your Arcane and Nature spell damage, like when you get the benefit of both Eclipses during Celestial Alignment, provide double their bonus to Astral spells. Friend of the Fae does not.
    • Wild Mushrooms damage increased by 10%.
    • The positions of the Ability druid starfall [Aetherial Kindling] and Spell arcane arcane04 [Lunar Shrapnel] talents have been swapped.
    • Spell arcane arcane03 [Starsurge] damage increased by 6%. This does not affect PvP combat.
    • Spell priest divinestar shadow2 [Shooting Stars] damage increased by 15%.
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (2) Set Bonus: Now increases the damage of Wrath and Starfire by 100% (was 60%).
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (4) Set Bonus: Now increases your current Eclipse's Arcane or Nature damage bonus by an additional 2% (was 3%), up to 10% (was 15%).
  • Feral
    • Developers' note: Some minor shakeups to Feral in Guardians of the Dream. Apex Predator's value varies a lot in single target and AOE, so we're evening that out a little. We're trying a new version of Ashamane's Guidance, as we don't love the randomness of the current version with the updated Berserk design – it's hard to optimize its damage and resource generation without using external tracking mods. The new version will have more consistent value and rewards you for maintaining your most important bleeds.
    • Ability druid primaltenacity [Apex Predator's Craving]'s chance to trigger is increased against a low number of targets and decreased against a high number of targets. Its chance to trigger is about the same as before against 4 targets.
    • Inv jewelcrafting gem 30 [Cat's Curiosity] has been replaced with a new talent: Saber Jaws – When you spend extra Energy on Ferocious Bite, the extra damage is increased by 40%/80%.
    • Spell druid incarnation [Ashamane's Guidance]'s effect for Incarnation: Avatar of Ashamane has been redesigned – During Incarnation: Avatar of Ashamane and for 30 seconds after it ends, your Rip and Rake each cause affected enemies to take 3% increased damage from your abilities.
    • Ability druid primaltenacity [Rampant Ferocity] damage increased by 10%.
    • Feral Druids can cast Spell nature lightning [Innervate] in Ability druid catform [Cat Form].
    • Ability druid predatoryinstincts [Relentless Predator] now reduces the Energy cost of Ferocious Bite by 10% (was 20%).
    • Apex Predator's chance to activate against a single target is reduced to 7.2% (was 9%), but the rate it activates against additional targets is increased.
  • Guardian
    • Developers' note: Guardian Druid's Rage generation scales exceptionally well with large numbers of targets, often resulting in resource saturation. This adjustment to Blood Frenzy is meant to tone down Rage income in scenarios with large target counts.
    • Spell druid thrash [Thrash]'s rage generation from Ability druid primaltenacity [Blood Frenzy] now has a target cap (was previously uncapped).
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (2) Set Bonus – Dream Thorns now absorbs 25% of the damage dealt to you while active (was 10%). Dream Thorns duration increased to 45 seconds.
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (2) Set Bonus has been slightly redesigned: Rage you spend during Rage of the Sleeper fuel the growth of Dream Thorns, which wreath you in their protection after Rage of the Sleeper expires, absorbing a percentage of damage dealt to you while the thorns remain, up to a value per Rage spent.
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (4) Set Bonus: Blazing Thorns value capped at 100% of maximum health.
    • Fixed an issue causing Blazing Thorns damage to be dealt twice.
  • Restoration
    • Ability druid treeoflife [Cenarius' Guidance]'s Incarnation: Tree of Life functionality has been redesigned – During Incarnation: Tree of Life, you summon a Grove Guardian every 10 seconds. The cooldown of Incarnation: Tree of Life is reduced by 5 seconds when Grove Guardians fade.
    • Ability druid improvedtreeform [Incarnation: Tree of Life] now additionally empowers Wrath, causing it to deal 20% more damage and be instant cast.

    • Ability druid cyclone [Circle of Life and Death] has been removed.
    • Inv relics idolofrejuvenation [Grove Tending] healing increased by 30%.
    • Ability druid forceofnature [Grove Guardians]' Nourish healing decreased by 16%.
    • Grove Guardian's Swiftmend healing reduced by 20%.
    • Grove Guardian's Wild Growth healing from Wild Synthesis reduced by 20%.
    • Achievement dungeon everbloom [Luxuriant Soil] now causes Rejuvenation to have a 1%/2% chance to jump to a nearby ally (was 1.5%/3%).

    • Regrowth heal over time effect increased by 42%.
    • Spell nature rejuvenation [Rejuvenation] healing increased by 25%.

    • Inv relics idolofrejuvenation [Swiftmend] healing increased by 30%.
    • Pandarenracial innerpeace [Inner Peace] now reduces the cooldown of Tranquility by 30 seconds (was 60 seconds).
    • Inv misc trailofflowers [Spring Blossoms] healing reduced by 25%.
    • Ability mage firestarter [Sunfire] now costs 1.8% base mana (was 2.4%).
    • Ability druid healinginstincts [Embrace of the Dream] healing reduced by 30%.
    • Spell druid wildburst [Flourish] now extends the duration of all your heal over time effects on friendly targets within 60 yards by 6 seconds (was 8 seconds), and increases the rate of your heal over time effects by 25% (was 100%) for 6 seconds (was 8 seconds).
    • Flourish procs from Convoke the Spirits now extends heal over time effects by 3 seconds (was 4 seconds) and lasts 3 seconds (was 4 seconds).
      • Developers' note: We are reducing the effectiveness of Flourish and increasing the power of rotational heal over time spells with the goal of moving more power into the baseline kit.
    • Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible (2) Set Bonus – Now increases the healing of Regrowth's periodic heal by 35% (was 50%).
    • Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible (4) Set Bonus – Now increases the rate of your heal over time effects by 26% (was 30%).
    • Flourish is now a 60 seconds cooldown (was 90 seconds).
      • Developers' note: We're increasing the availability of Flourish as its peak power level has gone down significantly.
    • Ability druid treeoflife [Cenarius' Guidance] no longer spawns an additional Grove Guardian at the beginning of Incarnation: Tree of Life.
    • Cenarius' Guidance now reduces the cooldown of Incarnation of Tree of Life by 5 seconds when a Grove Guardian fades (was 4 seconds).
    • Ability druid forceofnature [Grove Guardians] are now present on the totem bar.
    • Fixed an issue that caused Inv misc herb talandrasrose [Efflorescence] to slay Grove Guardians.
    • Ability druid flourish [Wild Growth] now costs 4% base mana (was 4.4%).
    • Spell nature resistnature [Regrowth] now costs 3.2% base mana (was 3.4%).

Evoker[]

  • Augmentation
    • Developer note: Augmentation's contributions to the party, particularly in Mythic+, are too impactful and are making it difficult for other compositions to shine. As a result, we're doing some targeted nerfs to their group utility by reducing the value of Aspects' Favor, Molten Blood, and Ebon Might.
    • Ability evoker aspectsfavor [Aspects' Favor] increases maximum health by 2/4% (was 3/6%).
    • Spell shaman spewlava [Molten Blood] absorption reduced by 50%. This remains unchanged in PvP combat.
    • Spell sarkareth [Ebon Might] grants 8% of the Evoker's primary stat (was 10%).
    • The above changes will be applied over the course of PTR via hotfix.
    • Ability evoker prescience [Prescience] now clears on raid encounter and Mythic+ start.
    • Prescience now has 2 charges.
    • Developers' note: Our goal with these changes is to reduce the power of stacking as many Augmentation buffs as possible on the same 4 targets in raid scenarios. We want to support having multiple Augmentation Evokers in a raid, but also prevent having 4 of them feel required to do maximum damage. By forcing these buffs to spread themselves out, it should still be viable to have multiple Augmentation Evokers without being overpowered.
    • If 2 Ebon Mights are already active on an ally, Ebon Might will now seek a nearby ally with fewer than 2 Ebon Mights.
    • Ebon Might's priority to apply to other Augmentation Evokers has been reduced and will apply to other damage dealing roles first.
    • If 2 Presciences are already active on an ally, Prescience will no longer be able to be applied to that ally.
    • When casting Prescience with an enemy selected, its priority to apply to other Augmentation Evokers has been reduced and will apply to other damage dealing roles first.
    • Shifting Sands now prefers to apply to an ally who does not already have Shifting Sands.
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope Set Bonus (4) Set Bonus: Trembling Earth now allows buff stacks to overlap.
      • Developers' note: With Prescience having 2 charges, there is now a case where you can lose a stack of Trembling Earth since you can cast Prescience twice in a row. To alleviate that, the stacks may now overlap so you don't waste part of the bonus.
  • Devastation
    • Developers' note: We are reducing the effectiveness of Mastery: Giantkiller and adding a health floor for the damage bonus. The goal is to bring some damage out of Dragonrage due to the talent Tyranny and make Devastation less reliant on hitting high health targets, while still retaining the flavor and gameplay of the Mastery. This makes them less bursty in PvP and allows them to be more flexible in raid and dungeon content. To compensate for the reduced damage during Dragonrage, we're increasing Devastation's overall damage as well.
    • All damage increased by 5%.
    • Ability evoker masterygiantkiller [Mastery: Giantkiller] reduced by 25%. For example at level 70, 180 Mastery rating now grants 1.5% Mastery (was 2%). In addition, damage no longer falls off once the target reaches 30% health.
    • Inv misc rubysanctum1 [Inherent Resistance] reduces magic damage taken by 4/8% (was 2/4%).
    • Ability rogue imrovedrecuperate [Attuned to the Dream] increases healing done and healing received by 3/6% (was 2/4%).
    • All spell and ability damage increased by 3%.
    • Ability evoker disintegrate [Disintegrate] damage increased by 15%.
  • Preservation

Hunter[]

  • Fixed an issue where Ability ensnare [Entrapment] didn't share diminishing returns with other root abilities.
  • Ability hunter markedfordeath [Hunter's Mark] now increases all damage taken by the target by 5% while the target is above 80% maximum health.
    • Developers' note: We like the idea of Hunter's Mark highlighting specific targets on the battlefield, so we have made an adjustment to Hunter's Mark to cause it to increase all damage taken by 5% on targets above 80% health. A few quick notes about this change:
      • When applying Hunter's Mark out of combat or before a pull, it continues to have no cooldown. If you apply Hunter's Mark while in combat, Hunter's Mark receives a 20 second cooldown. We don't intend for you to move this damage bonus around frequently.
      • Hunter's Mark is still on the global cooldown with this change.
      • Multiple Hunters can not stack this damage bonus on the same target.
  • Fixed an issue where several talents or set bonus effects that modified damage dealt or critical damage dealt did not properly affect the damage of the Poison Injection talent.
  • Beast Mastery
    • Developers' note: Aspect of the Wild and Call of the Wild have struggled to be compelling choices during Dragonflight. Both of these cooldowns were competing for similar design space to make you and your pets feel stronger in a way that feels different than Bestial Wrath. After evaluating these abilities, we have decided to replace Aspect of the Wild entirely and convert it into passive options on the talent tree. The removal of Aspect of the Wild allows us to double down on Call of the Wild being a strong pet summoning cooldown for the Beast Mastery spec. We're also lowering the number of talent points in the Thrill of the Hunt and Dire Command talent nodes from 3 to 2, which should give you some extra flexibility in your talent choices.
    • Spell nature protectionformnature [Aspect of the Wild] has been removed.
    • New Talent: Spell nature protectionformnature [Savagery] (Passive) – Kill Command damage is increased by 10%. Barbed Shot lasts 2 seconds longer. Replaces Aspect of the Wild.
    • Ability hunter beastwithin [Master Handler] has been redesigned – Each time Barbed Shot deals damage, the cooldown of Kill Command is reduced by 0.5 seconds.
    • Ability hunter callofthewild [Call of the Wild] has been slightly redesigned – Cooldown reduced to 2 minutes (was 3 minutes) and the base ability now also has the added functionality: Whenever Call of the Wild summons a pet, the cooldown of Kill Command and Barbed Shot are reduced by 50%.
    • Choice nodes for Call of the Wild updated:
      • While Call of the Wild is active, all of your pets are affected by Beast Cleave. Each time Call of the Wild summons a pet, all of your pets Stomp.
      • While Call of the Wild is active, each time you Kill Command, your Kill Command target takes 3% more damage from all of your summons. This effect stacks.
    • Ability hunter thrillofthehunt [Thrill of the Hunt] is now a 2-rank talent (was 3). Each point grants 2% critical strike chance, stacking up to 2/4 times (was 3%, stacking 1/2/3 times).
    • Ability hunter ferociousinspiration [Dire Command] is now a 2-rank talent (was 3). Each point grants 15/30% chance to trigger (was 10/20/30%).
    • Inv waepon bow zulgrub d 01 [Snake Bite] has been removed.
    • Bonus pets from Call of the Wild now spawn on top of your target rather than by your side.
  • Marksmanship
    • Developers' note: Windrunner's Guidance being unreliable has added too much variance to a hunter's performance on each dungeon or raid attempt. This should keep the Wind Arrow theme strong and useful, while being predictable and reliable for how it interacts with your other abilities and the Trueshot cooldown.
    • Ability hunter laceration [Windrunner's Guidance] has been redesigned – Each Wind Arrow fired reduces the cooldown of Rapid Fire by 0.5 seconds, and every 8 wind arrows increases the duration of your next Trueshot by 1 second, up to a maximum of 10 seconds.
  • Survival
    • Wildfire Bombs now correctly states that damage is reduced when damaging more than 8 targets.
      • Developers' note: This is not a functionality change for Wildfire Bomb, but rather a tooltip clarity update. This has been in effect since Shadowlands.
    • Wildfire Bombs now deal 40% increased damage to your primary target.
      • Developers' note: The Aberrus Survival set bonus increases the value of Wildfire Bomb while in single target encounters in a way that has worked out well. We want to keep this interaction going forward for Survival, so we are removing it from the set bonus and just making all variants of Wildfire Bomb, including any periodic damage effects, deal 40% increased damage to your primary target when using Wildfire Bomb.
    • Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible (4) Set Bonus – No longer causes Kill Command to increase damage taken from Wildfire Bombs.
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (2) Set Bonus: Fixed an issue that prevented the set bonus from affecting your pet's critical strike chance and critical strike damage.
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (2) Set Bonus: Fixed an issue that prevented the set bonus from affecting the first periodic event of Fury of the Eagle.
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (4) Set Bonus: Now causes your next Wildfire Bomb to not consume a charge (previously generated 1 charge).
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (4) Set Bonus: The set bonus Contained Explosion buff now refreshes per tick of Fury of the Eagle.
    • The empowerment buff from Inv coordinatedassault [Coordinated Assault] now lasts for 5 seconds (was 3 seconds).
    • Fixed an issue where the Coordinated Assault empowerment buff had the wrong spell description.

Mage[]

  • Arcane
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (2) Set Bonus – The duration of the Forethought has been increased to 20 seconds (was 15 seconds).
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (4) Set Bonus – Now requires consuming 3 Clearcasting stacks to empower your next Arcane Missiles (was 6). After consuming 3 Clearcasting Arcane Missiles, your next Arcane Missiles will deal 150% increased damage to the primary target and 100% increased damage to the secondary targets hit.
    • Fixed an issue with the Arcane Missile Volley reach extending far further than intended.
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope Set Bonus: Forethought and Arcane Artillery now clear on encounter start.
    • Fixed an issue where Spell shadow manaburn [Clearcasting] would trigger off non-Mage spells.
    • Fixed an issue where gaining Clearcasting from Inv misc gem sapphire 02 [Cascading Power] wouldn't correctly gain all the Clearcasting modifiers including Slipstream's channel while casting benefit.
    • Fixed an issue where consuming a Ability mage potentspirit [Concentration] proc would not also grant Nether Precision if talented.
    • Fixed an issue with Ability mage arcanesurge [Arcane Surge] not splashing beyond 5 targets as indicated on the tooltip.
    • Ability monk forcesphere arcane [Siphon Storm]'s tooltip has been updated to clarify that it grants 1 Arcane Charge.
  • Fire
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (4) Set Bonus – Fixed an issue that caused Time Anomaly to incorrectly trigger.
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (2) Set Bonus – Now increases Critical Strike damage by 4% per stack (was 3%).
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (4) Set Bonus – Now increases the Critical Strike damage bonus of Searing Rage by 150% (was 100%).
    • Developer's note: We're aware of an issue with the following Crit Damage bonuses not attributing the correct amount of damage to Ignite when an ability critically strikes: Overflowing Energy, Wildfire, and Searing Rage (10.2 Class Set Bonus). This issue will be resolved in next week's PTR build.
    • Fixed an issue with the following critical damage bonuses not attributing the correct amount of damage to Ignite when an ability crit: Overflowing Energy, Wildfire, and Searing Rage (Amirdrassil, the Dreams Hope set bonus effect).

Monk[]

  • Jade Serpent Statue's Soothing Mist healing increased by 40%.
  • Brewmaster
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (4) Set Bonus: Stagger absorb value capped at 100% of maximum health.
  • Mistweaver
    • Ability monk chicocoon [Life Cocoon] healing increased by 33%.
    • Ability monk soothingmists [Soothing Mist] healing increased by 40%.
    • Spell monk envelopingmist [Enveloping Mist] healing increased by 25%.

    • Invigorating Mist's healing is now reduced beyond 5 targets.

    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (2) Set Bonus – Chi Harmony now stores 20% of all healing (was 15%).
    • Ability monk jasmineforcetea [Healing Elixir] has been redesigned as a passive effect – You consume a healing elixir when you drop below 35% health and are not in a loss of control effect, instantly healing you for 15% of your maximum health. You generate 1 healing elixir every 30 seconds, stacking up to 2 times.
    • Ability creature cursed 04 [Unison]'s range increased to 40 yards (was 15 yards).
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (4) Set Bonus: Fixed an issue that caused some healing spells to not properly contribute to Chi Harmony.

    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (4) Set Bonus: Now accumulates up to 15% of healing done (was 20%).
    • Ability monk jasmineforcetea [Healing Elixir] now additionally heals if excess healing elixirs are generated.

    • Healing Elixir now automatically triggers at 40% health (was 35%).

    • Expel Harm healing increased by 550%.
    • Expel Harm now deals damage equal to 25% of the amount healed (was 10%).

    • Enveloping Breath healing decreased by 20%.
    • Ability monk vivify [Invigorating Mists]' healing visual is now only visible to the caster.
    • Ability monk risingsunkick [Rising Sun Kick] damage increased by 20%. Does not apply in PvP combat.
    • Inv misc orb 01 [Calming Presence] now reduces damage taken by 6% (was 3%). Does not apply in PvP combat.
    • Ability monk risingsunkick [Rising Sun Kick] is now granted by default.
    • The location of Healing Elixir and Ability monk forcesphere [Zen Pulse] has swapped.
    • Starter Build has been updated.
    • Fixed an issue that caused Ability monk uplift [Tear of Morning] and Ability monk thunderfocustea [Thunder Focus Tea]'s Enveloping Mist effects to not be properly increased by 25%.
    • Ability butcher heavyhanded [Bounce Back] now reduces damage by 20/40% (was 10/20%) and triggers when you receive 15% of your maximum health in damage (was 20%). Does not apply in PvP combat.
    • Ability monk soothingmists [Clouded Focus] now stacks up to 2 times (was 3) and no longer increases the healing of Vivify before its first application.
    • Ability monk vivify [Vivify] and Invigorating Mist healing increased by 12%.
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (4) Set Bonus: Chi Harmony now stores 20% of all healing done (was 15%).
  • Windwalker
    • Developers' note: We are continuing to monitor the set bonus and the feedback around it. As the auto-attack trigger was not accomplishing the intended goal of providing Windfoot only during lulls and quiet points in the rotation, we've updated the bonus to trigger off all melee ability damage and normalized trigger frequency.
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (2) Set Bonus – Blackout Kick damage increase is now 150% (was 100%).
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (4) Set Bonus – Cooldown reduction increased to 2 seconds (was 1 second).
    • Fixed an issue that prevented Windfoot from being correctly consumed when Ability monk cranekick new [Spinning Crane Kick] was used.
    • Fixed an issue that caused Windfoot to be consumed when Dance of Chi-Ji empowers a Spinning Crane Kick.
    • Fixed an issue that prevented Ability monk cranekick new [Dance of Chi-Ji] from granting Blackout Reinforcement.
      • Developers' note: The Windwalker changes above were applied to the PTR environment late last week.
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (2) Set Bonus – Windfoot now triggers off melee abilities in addition to auto-attacks and has been shifted to a normalized proc model.
    • Blackout Reinforcement's tooltip updated to reflect the updated cooldown reduction value.
    • Developers' note: We heard community feedback that the additional Spinning Crane Kicks granted by Windfoot were difficult to fit into the rotation and Blackout Reinforcement alone was not an impactful enough payoff. Windfoot has been removed and the set will now directly grant Blackout Reinforcement. Additionally, free Spinning Crane Kicks should now more reliably and consistently grant Blackout Reinforcement. As always, we will continue to monitor feedback around this bonus and appreciate the testing the community has put forth.
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (2) Set Bonus has been redesigned: Free Spinning Crane Kicks grant Blackout Reinforcement, increasing the damage of your next Blackout Kick by 150%. Melee abilities have a chance to grant Blackout Reinforcement.
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (4) Set Bonus has been redesigned: Blackout Reinforcement empowered Blackout Kicks reduce the cooldown of Fists of Fury, Rising Sun Kick, Strike of the Windlord, and Whirling Dragon Punch by 3 seconds.
    • Spinning Crane Kicks cast during Serenity now correctly grant Blackout Reinforcement.
    • Blackout Reinforcement is correctly removed at the start of Mythic+ dungeons and raid encounters.
    • Blackout Reinforcement can no longer be canceled. Usage of Cancelaura macros on Dance of Chi-Ji without casting a Spinning Crane Kick will no longer grant Blackout Reinforcement.
    • Developers' note: We liked the positive effect that Fangs of the Vermillion Forge had on Windwalker single target damage, and are transferring some of that power from the class set into the base specialization as players adventure into Amirdrassil and replace their existing gear. The net effect of these changes is an overall increase in character power.Additionally, we heard player concerns that the effort required to play Whirling Dragon Punch wasn't worth the resulting increase in power. We agree, and have increased the damage it deals as a result.We have also added additional damage to the Amirdrassil (4) set as the cooldown reduction, while fun, was not entirely meeting our goals for additional power granted by the bonus.
    • Ability monk risingsunkick [Rising Sun Kick] damage increased by 10%.
    • Monk ability fistoffury [Fists of Fury] damage increased by 5% and additional damage to primary target increased by 10%.
    • Ability monk hurricanestrike [Whirling Dragon Punch] damage increased by 10%.
    • Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible (2) Set Bonus: Rising Sun Kick bonus damage reduced to 5% (was 10%).
    • Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible (4) Set Bonus: Fists of Fury primary target damage reduced to 20% (was 30%).
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (4) Set Bonus: Now increases the damage of Fists of Fury, Rising Sun Kick, Strike of the Windlord, and Whirling Dragon Punch by 4%.

Paladin[]

  • Holy
    • All healing reduced by 5%.

    • Ability paladin toweroflight [Glimmer of Light] healing and damage is now increased by 4% per target (was 6%).
    • Glimmer of Light damage increased by 10%.
    • Spell holy vindication [Hand of Divinity] now increases the healing of Holy Light by 40% (was 80%).
    • Ability paladin savedbythelight [Saved by the Light]'s absorb shield increased by 50%.
    • Spell paladin inquisition [Blessed Focus] now increases the healing of Glimmer of Light by 40% (was 25%).
    • Spell holy blessedlife [Merciful Auras] healing is now increased by 20% (was 50%) while Aura Mastery is active.
    • Merciful Aura healing increased by 15%.
    • Achievment raid houroftwilight [Touch of Light] healing now increased by 500% (was 700%).
    • Inv helmet 96 [Word of Glory] healing increased by 10%.
    • Ability paladin barrieroffaith [Barrier of Faith] now creates an absorb based on 25% of healing done (was 50%).
    • Spell holy auramastery [Aura Mastery] now increases the effectiveness of Devotion Aura to 12% (was 15%).
    • Inv chest plate raidpaladin s 01 [Sanctified Plates] is now 40% less effective.
    • Ability ardenweald paladin winter [Blessing of Winter] now restores 10% mana over 30 seconds (was 15%).
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (2) Set Bonus: Holy Reverberation healing reduced by 25%.
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (2) Set Bonus: Holy Reverberation now correctly functions with Mastery: Lightbringer.
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (4) Set Bonus: Now increases Haste by 25% for 5 seconds, in addition to its current effect.
  • Protection
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (2) Set Bonus – Now grants damage reduction instead of Armor. Maximum stacks reduced to 5, each granting 2% damage reduction (was 10 stacks, each granting 1% Armor).
    • Fixed an issue causing misalignment between Spell holy innerfire [Consecration] and Spell holy holyprotection [Mastery: Divine Bulwark].
  • Retribution
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope Set Bonus – Divine Toll is now guaranteed to target at least one valid enemy with Expurgation.
    • Fixed a few targeting issues that caused Wrathful Sanction to trigger multiple times on one Judgment cast.
    • Fixed an issue causing unintentional Divine Purpose and Empyrean Power proc consumption.
    • Developers' note: Due to previous bugs with targeting issues on Wrathful Sanction, the ability was a bit undertuned. Following these bug fixes, we're retuning the set bonus to better hit our tuning targets for the set bonus. Additionally, with the amount of uptime that the 4-set bonus provides, it was overperfoming in tandem with a few of the Retribution talents located deeper in the tree. We appreciate everyone's feedback and playtesting and we'll keep making adjustments to this sets power as necessary over the course of PTR.
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (2) Set Bonus – Expurgation now deals 30% increased damage (was 50%). Wrathful Sanction now deals 50% of the main Holy damage to up to 4 nearby enemies (was 20%).
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (4) Set Bonus – Echoes of Wrath now causes your next Templar's Verdict and Divine Storm to deal damage a second time for 25% effectiveness (was 50%).
    • Ability paladin bladeofjustice [Blade of Vengeance] now functions as an addition to your single target Blade of Justice rather than replacing it.

Priest[]

  • Spell holy powerinfusion [Power Infusion] Haste reduced to 20% (was 25%) and duration reduced to 15 seconds (was 20 seconds).
    • Developers' note: Power Infusion has proved to be too impactful due to how it stacks with cooldowns on specializations that excel at dealing damage in a short window. We're reducing it's duration and amplitude to balance our burst classes and keep them more in line with steady-state damage dealers.
  • Spell shadow demonicfortitude [Shadow Word: Death] now deals 8% of the Priest's maximum health in damage when it fails to kill a target instead of the backlash damage being based on damage dealt.
  • Spell nzinsanity bloodthirst [Tithe Evasion] now reduces Shadow Word: Death damage dealt to the Priest by 50% (was 75%).
  • Shadow Word: Death backlash damage is now reduced by damage reduction effects.
  • Spell arcane massdispel [Mass Dispel] cooldown is now 2 minutes (was 45 seconds).
    • Developers' note: We're reducing the frequency that Priests have access to Mass Dispel as the value of the spell is exceeding the value of other utility at its current power level and cooldown. We're looking to allow for more situations where magic debuffs are applied to multiple players without having a Priest trivializing the intended difficulty of the mechanics.
  • Spell arcane massdispel [Improved Mass Dispel] is now a PvP Talent and reduces the cooldown of Mass Dispel by 60 seconds (was 20 seconds).
  • Improved Mass Dispel no longer reduces the cast time of Mass Dispel.
  • Improved Mass Dispel has been replaced with Mental Agility in the Priest talent tree.
  • New Talent: Spell holy dispelmagic [Mental Agility] – Reduces the mana cost of Purify, Purify Disease, and Mass Dispel by 50% and Dispel Magic by 10%.
  • Spell holy holynova [Rhapsody] now only highlights Holy Nova at max stacks while in combat.
  • Ability priest holywordlife [Power Word: Life] now costs 2.5% mana (was 0.5%).
  • Power Word: Life cooldown decreased to 15 seconds (was 30 seconds), but its cooldown is no longer decreased when cast on targets below 35% health.
  • Power Word: Life is now only usable on targets below 35% health.
  • Power Word: Life's healing increased by 500% and no longer increases its healing on targets below 35% health.
  • Discipline
    • Developers' note: The goal of these changes is to simplify Discipline's damage rotation as well as the number of stacking modifiers used when ramping up for burst healing. This should make it smoother to play by reducing the number of abilities pressed in sequence, allowing players to focus on managing Atonement and triaging their allies instead.
    • Spell warlock focusshadow [Schism] has been redesigned to be a passive talent – Now causes Mind Blast to fracture the enemy's mind, increasing your spell damage to the target by 10% for 9 seconds.
    • Spell shadow summonvoidwalker [Shadow Covenant] has been redesigned to be a passive talent – Shadowfiend or Mindbender enters you into a shadowy pact, transforming Halo, Divine Star, and Penance into Shadow spells and increasing the damage and healing of your Shadow spells by 25% for 15 seconds (7 seconds with Mindbender).
      • Developers' note: Shadow Covenant is another ability that must be sequenced correctly and is usually stacked with other damage modifiers. By merging this effect with Shadowfiend, we can streamline the damage rotation and make Shadowfiend a more exciting cooldown at the same time.
    • Spell shadow unholyfrenzy [Mind Blast] now has a 24 second cooldown (was 9 seconds).
    • Mind Blast damage has been increased by 30%.
    • Spell shadow unholyfrenzy [Dark Indulgence] no longer grants an additional charge of Mind Blast. Instead, Mind Blast has a 100% chance to grant Power of the Dark Side.
    • Spell shadow chilltouch [Inescapable Torment] damage increased by 60%.
    • Inescapable Torment now triggers from Penance in addition to Mind Blast and Shadow Word: Death.
    • Inescapable Torment is now a 1-point talent (was 2).
    • Ability priest flashoflight [Power Word: Solace] has been removed.
      • Developers' note: Power Word: Solace has a long history, but it was another example of a short cooldown damage button that cramped the rotation, so we're removing it.
    • Ability paladin handoflight [Harsh Discipline] no longer triggers after 4 spell casts of Smite, Mind Blast, or Power Word: Solace. Instead, Power Word: Radiance has a 30/60% chance to cause your next Penance to be free and fire 3 extra bolts.
      • Developers' note: While Harsh Discipline was fun to play with, it added another thing you had to do before paying off on your Atonements. By triggering from Power Word: Radiance, this will now automatically happen after applying your Atonements. This will also reduce the frequency of Harsh Discipline procs, and allow regular Penance to deal more damage and healing.
    • New Talent: Spell holy holysmite [Sanctuary] – Smite prevents the next 80% damage dealt by the enemy.
    • New Talent: Ability priest ascendance [Ultimate Penitence] – Ascend into the air and unleash a massive barrage of Penance bolts, causing Holy damage to enemies or healing to allies over 6 seconds. While ascended, gain a shield for 50% of your health. In addition, you are unaffected by knockbacks or crowd control effects.
    • New Talent: Spell holy penance [Heaven's Wrath] – Each Penance bolt you fire reduces the cooldown of Ultimate Penitence by 2 seconds.
    • New Talent: Ability crown of the heavens icon [Overloaded with Light] – Ultimate Penitence emits an explosion of light, healing up to 10 allies around you and applying Atonement at 50% of normal duration.
    • Spell holy penance [Penance] damage increased by 15%.
    • Penance healing increased by 30%.
    • Spell holy powerwordbarrier [Power Word: Barrier] now reduces 20% of all damage taken (was 25%).

    • Atonement healing is now increased by 50% when not in a raid.
    • Spell holy flashheal [Flash Heal] healing increased by 40%.
    • Spell holy powerwordshield [Power Word: Shield] absorption increased by 10%.
    • Spell holy devineaegis [Divine Aegis] is now a 1-point talent (was 2).
    • Inv staff 2h artifacttome d 01 [Light's Wrath], Inv staff 2h artifacttome d 01 [Resplendent Light], Spell priest divinestar holy [Wrath Unleashed], and Spell holy penance [Make Amends] have been removed.
    • Developers' note: We heard feedback that Shadow Covenant and the talent tree in general would be more flexible and interesting if Shadowfiend were a more viable option, so Shadow Covenant now grants a higher damage increase with Shadowfiend. We've also tied in the duration with the duration of Shadowfiend or Mindbender to make using Inescapable Torment more enjoyable. Finally, we've reduced the overall value of Shadow Covenant (particularly with Mindbender) and distributed some of the power into Penance, to nudge Discipline a bit closer towards consistent damage instead of heavy burst windows.
    • Ability priest ascendance [Ultimate Penitence] now takes into account your primary target and will prioritize healing bolts if an ally is selected, or damaging bolts if an enemy is selected. Damage and healing increased by 25%, and an initial tick has been added to the start of the channel.
    • Spell warlock demonsoul [Embrace Shadow] has been removed. Twilight Corruption remains in its location, and continues to increase Shadow Covenant's effectiveness by an additional 10%.
    • Spell shadow summonvoidwalker [Shadow Covenant] duration now matches the duration of Mindbender at 12 seconds (was 7 seconds with Mindbender).
    • Shadow Covenant now grants 10% Shadow damage and healing increase with Mindbender, or 25% with Shadowfiend (was 25% with either one).
    • Shadow Covenant's visuals have been improved.
    • Spell holy penance [Penance] damage and healing increased by 15%.
    • Spell shadow soulleech 3 [Mindbender] and Void Summoner have swapped locations in the talent tree.
    • Spell shadow shadowfiend [Void Summoner] reduces the cooldown of Shadowfiend by 4 seconds or Mindbender by 2 seconds (was 2 seconds for both).
    • Fixed an issue causing Mindbender to sometimes return to your side immediately upon being summoned.
    • Spell shadow shadowpower [Expiation] increases Mind Blast and Shadow Word: Death damage by 15/30% (was 10/20%).
    • Spell priest burningwill [Weal and Woe] increases Smite's damage by 20% per stack (was 12%) and Power Word: Shield by 10% per stack (was 5%).
    • Spell holy holynova [Rhapsody] now increases the damage of Holy Nova by 10% per stack (was 20%).
    • Ability paladin handoflight [Harsh Discipline] has been redesigned – Power Word: Radiance causes your next Penance to fire 1 (or 2) additional bolts, stacking up to 2 times.
    • Ability priest ascendance [Ultimate Penitence]'s damaging bolts deal 80% spell power (was 57.5%) and healing bolts heal for 330% spell power (was 206%).

    • Spell holy persuitofjustice [Holy Word: Serenity] healing increased by 30%.
    • Spell holy flashheal [Flash Heal] healing increased by 40%.
    • Ability priest archangel [Holy Word: Salvation]'s cooldown is now reduced by 15 seconds (was 30 seconds) by Holy Word: Serenity and Holy Word: Sanctify.

    • Spell priest divinestar [Divine Star] healing decreased by 25%.
    • Ability priest halo [Halo] healing decreased by 15%.
    • Spell holy greaterheal [Heal] healing increased by 40%.
    • Developers' note: With the Flash Heal and Heal buffs, Trail of Light was overperforming, so we're reducing its value to match its previous power level. We're also increasing the value of Pontifex since it was an unpopular talent. Finally, we're making Echo of Light's period faster so that it is more responsive to damage.
    • Spell holy prayerofmendingtga [Prayer of Mending] healing decreased by 5%.
    • Spell holy aspiration [Prismatic Echoes] now increases the healing of Echo of Light by 4/8% (was 6/12%).
    • Echo of Light healing decreased by 15%.

    • Spell priest pontifex [Pontifex] increases healing done by Holy Words by 20%, stacking 2 times (was 10%).
    • Echo of Light heals every 2 seconds and lasts 4 seconds (was heals every 3 seconds and lasts 6 seconds).
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (4) Set Bonus: Fixed an issue that caused the set bonus to activate Sacred Reverence less often than intended.
  • Shadow
    • Spell shadow shadowfury [Shadow Crash] damage is now reduced beyond 5 targets.
    • Spell fire twilightflamebreath [Surge of Insanity] now triggers from every 3 casts of Devouring Plague instead of every cast of Devouring Plague.
      • Developers' note: The rotation has a lot going on and much of that is due to the frequency that Mind Flay: Insanity and Mind Spike: Insanity are available, so we're adjusting the frequency of the effect.
    • Spell shadow siphonmana [Mind Flay] damage increased by 10%.
    • Spell fire twilightflamebreath [Mind Flay: Insanity] damage increased by 30%.
    • Ability socererking arcanereplication nightborne [Mind Spike: Insanity] damage increased by 20%.
    • Fixed an issue causing Deathspeaker to reset the cooldown of Shadow Word: Death to 10 seconds.
    • Fixed an issue causing Deathspeaker to trigger the cooldown lockout for Death and Madness.
    • Fixed an issue causing additional Shadow Word: Deaths from the Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope Set Bonus to not trigger Psychic Link.
    • Spell shadow chilltouch [Inescapable Torment] now triggers at 35% reduced effectiveness from additional Shadow Word: Deaths caused by the Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope Set Bonus.

    • Spell fire twilightflamebreath [Surge of Insanity] now triggers from every 2 casts of Devouring Plague (was 3).
      • Developers' note: The Shadow rotation slowed down more than we were intending for from our changes earlier this patch and we've seen similar feedback from the community. We maintain our goal to reduce how busy the Shadow rotation is, so we're not reverting Surge of Isanity to its Fury Incarnate state, and instead reducing the casts required. We're also increasing the Insanity generated from the associated spells to further distinguish their power from the base versions of the spells.
    • Ability socererking arcanereplication nightborne [Mind Spike: Insanity] now generates 8 Insanity (was 6).
    • Spell fire twilightflamebreath [Mind Flay: Insanity] now generates 16 Insanity over its duration (was 12).

    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (4) Set Bonus: Now increases the initial damage of Shadow Crash by 100% per stack (was 50%).
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (2) Set Bonus: Now triggers additional Shadow Word: Deaths at 15% effectiveness (was 20%).

    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (4) Set Bonus: Now highlights Shadow Word: Pain and Shadow Crash at 12 stacks (was 10).

Rogue[]

  • Developer's note: In Guardians of the Dream we are updating all 4 Rogue talent trees to bring them up to current standards. A sweeping pass was needed to make significant adjustments to address notable concerns, like: moving the first gate from row 3 to row 4 to match all other classes; improving pathing and increasing interconnectedness on every tree; removing 3-point nodes; and reducing the percentage of minor DPS talents taken in the Class tree to make room for more flavorful and robust utility options. We also wanted to use the opportunity where so many things are changing to rework or redesign some talents that needed the update, and also just to make some new talents to experience and (hopefully) enjoy. Let us know what you think!
  • Many changes have been made to Class talent positions and connections.
  • Ability sap [Sap] is now a baseline ability.
  • Inv throwingknife 04 [Shiv] damage increased by 20%.
  • Shiv now costs 30 Energy (was 20) and has a 30 second cooldown (was 25 seconds).
  • New Talent: Spell magic featherfall [Featherfoot] (Passive) – Sprint increases movement speed by an additional 30%, and duration increased by 4 seconds.
  • New Talent: Inv misc potionsete [Superior Mixture] (Passive) – Crippling Poison reduced movement speed by an additional 10%.
  • New Talent: Ability rogue ghostpirate [Graceful Guile] (Passive) – Feint has 1 additional charge.
  • New Talent: Ability rogue shroudofconcealment [Stillshroud] (Passive) – Shroud of Concealment has 50% reduced cooldown.
  • Ability rogue vigor [Vigor]'s location has changed and is now a 2-point talent, increasing max Energy by 50/100 and increasing Energy regeneration by 8/15%.
  • Ability rogue deadenednerves [Deadly Precision] is now a 1-point talent. Per point value has not changed.
  • Ability stealth [Nightstalker]'s location has changed and now increases damage while Stealth is active by 8/15% (was 4/8%).
  • Spell animabastion buff [Reverberation] now increases Echoing Reprimand damage by 100% (was 75%).
  • Ability rogue nervesofsteel [Deadened Nerves] now reduces physical damage taken by 5% (was 3%).
  • Ability bastion rogue [Echoing Reprimand] now charges a combo point from 3/4/5 (was 2/3/4).
  • Achievement bg killingblow berserker [Marked for Death] has been adjusted:
    • Cooldown adjusted to 40 seconds for all specializations (was 30 seconds for Assassination and Subtlety, 60 seconds for Outlaw).
    • Grants full combo points (was 5).
    • Now increases the damage your finishing moves deal to the target by 15%.
    • Lasts 15 seconds (was 60 seconds) and resets cooldown if the target dies during the effect.
  • Ability stealth [Nightstalker] damage bonus reduced to 5/10% (was 8/15%).
  • Ability racial ultravision [Elusiveness] now causes Evasion to reduce damage taken by 20% (was 10%).
    • Developers' note: This change will be deployed to PTR over the course of this week.
  • Ability rogue bloodyeye [Airborne Irritant] has been moved to the class tree (was in Outlaw) and has been adjusted – Blind has 50% reduced cooldown, 40% reduced duration, and applies to all enemies near the target.
  • Achievement bg killingblow berserker [Marked for Death] has been removed.
  • Inv misc herb 16 [Improved Wound Poison], Inv misc potionsete [Superior Mixture], and Atrophic/Numbing Poisons have shuffled talent locations.
  • Assassination
    • Developers' note: Assassination is known for having strong single target damage, but has two areas of concern we hope to address in Guardians of the Dream. First and foremost, their AoE has been notably weak and left them far behind the pack for M+ and certain raid encounter types. Secondly, Assassination's damage performance does not improve at a similar rate compared to most specs when players improve their play and coordination to take on bigger challenges, like when moving from Heroic to Mythic level raiding. We hope the changes here will raise the floor of Assassination's AoE, especially before reaching and needing capstone talents to do so, and that it will feel like a distinct Assassination-like way to deliver AoE damage and not just copy/paste of another spec's gameplay. As for the second concern, it's very important to us that we not completely rewrite the book and threaten to undermine what makes Assassination appealing for so many players from both fantasy and gameplay perspectives. That said, the changes aimed at addressing this issue are more subtle. We intend to create more room for players tackling high-end content to use their resources and encounter knowledge to get improved performance outcomes, while not increasing the number of hoops players at all levels need to jump through to get results similar to the past.

    • New Talent: Inv artifact bloodoftheassassinated [Path of Blood] (Passive) – Increases max Energy by 100.
    • Ability rogue disembowel [Envenom] duration reduced by 1 second.

      • Active version: 1 minute cooldown. Garrote, Rupture, and Crimson Tempest consume 10 Energy to duplicate 100% of any damage dealt. Lasts 10 seconds.
      • Passive version: While above 100 Energy your Garrote, Rupture, and Crimson Tempest consume 8 Energy to duplicate 40% of any damage dealt.
        • Developers' note: There are two updated versions of Exsanguinate available to test on PTR, located on the talent tree as a choice node with one being active and one being passive. Based on testing, feedback, and possible iteration, we will likely keep one to continue on for patch release and discard the other.

  • Outlaw
    • Developers' note: Outlaw's talent tree has produced some fun gameplay so far in Dragonflight, but it has significant issues with rigidity, lack of pathing options, high tension between early tree DPS and utility nodes, and far above average number of unskippable core skills. Some of those skills have returned to Outlaw baseline, creating room for improved pathing and interconnectedness. We have also reworked or redesigned some existing talents and introduced some new options, with the hope that it will expand the gameplay space and options available to popular Outlaw builds.
    • Many changes have been made to Outlaw talent positions and connections.

    • Ability rogue ambush [Audacity] now causes Ambush to replace Sinister Strike when the effect is triggered.
    • Ability rogue murderspree [Killing Spree] damage increased by 25%.
  • Subtlety
    • Developers' note: Subtlety and its talent tree have been in a similar position as Outlaw. The gameplay outcome has been mostly good during Dragonflight so far, but many talents are underused, and rigid pathing with insufficient connections have restricted talent options. We have changed, redesigned, and added new talents alongside improvements to pathing and interconnectedness that will hopefully add up to feeling like there is more gameplay diversity and flexibility in the tree. And while we noted that gameplay outcomes thus far in Dragonflight have been ‘good', there have been some negative trends we hope to address. To start, Subtlety's Energy and combo point resource economies have been overflowing, which creates a cascade of issues. Uptime for key cooldowns (predominantly Shadow Dance) has also been higher than expected, forcing overall damage tuning to result in a relatively flat damage profile, especially for a spec that is often known for having moments of increased intensity and burst within those frequent cooldown windows. So, in addition to the more general improvements and additions for talents, there are some changes that affect Subtlety's Energy and combo point flow that will reduce the floor of their steady downtime rate, and increase the relative value of effects that temporarily offer more resources. It will require tuning and iteration to get to the amounts of total resource generation and damage output in a good state, so any gameplay feedback you would like to share on these topics is welcome. Let us know!

  • Enhancement
    • Ability maldraxxus shaman [Primordial Wave] spell damage increased by 500%.
    • Developers' note: We have shuffled a few talents around the Enhancement Shaman tree to increase some available talent choices. We're also adjusting the functionality of a few talents to work with more melee abilities or elemental damage types to make them more attractive to a wider variety of builds. A new passive talent is available to choose rather than Elemental Blast to allow you to opt out of an extra keybind and Maelstrom Weapon spender to keep track of with Elemental Blast. We hope these changes give you some extra flexibility with your talent points and make some lesser used talents more impactful.
    • Several talents have been moved to a different place in the talent tree.
    • Starter build updated due to the pathing changes above.
    • Spell shaman improvedstormstrike [Elemental Assault] can now also generate Maelstrom Weapon charges from Ice Strike and Lava Lash rather than only Stormstrike.

    • Umbrafire Kindling now lasts 20 seconds (was 12 seconds).
    • Ability bossgorefiend gorefiendscorruption [Soul-Eater's Gluttony] has been redesigned – Soul Rot cooldown is reduced by 15/30 seconds.
    • Fixed an issue where Umbrafire Kindling would only increase the damage of Seed of Corruption to the main target.
  • Demonology
    • Developers' note: Demonology's damage profile is currently too reliant on Nether Portal and Tyrant windows. In Guardians of the Dream, we're redistributing this power to other parts of Demonology's rotation and decoupling the synergy between these two cooldowns so that they can stand on their own rather than being dependent on one another. We still want Nether Portal and Demonic Tyrant to be impactful, powerful cooldowns – just not the only source of meaningful output for a Demonology Warlock.
    • Achievement dungeon outland dungeonmaster [Gul'dan's Ambition] has been redesigned – When Nether Portal ends, you summon a Pit Lord that serves you for 10 seconds.

    • Ability bossdarkvindicator auraofoppression [Reign of Tyranny] has been redesigned – Active Wild Imps grant 1 stack of Demonic Servitude and active greater demons grant 3 stacks of Demonic Servitude, up to 15 stacks.

    • Inv demonbolt [Demonbolt] damage increased 30%.
    • Ability warlock handofguldan [Hand of Gul'dan] damage increased 25%.
    • Wild Imp damage increased 25%.
    • Inv implosion [Implosion] damage increased 25%.
    • Spell shadow shadowbolt [Shadow Bolt] damage increased 30%.
    • Spell warlock calldreadstalkers [Call Dreadstalkers] damage increased 25%.
    • Spell shadow summonfelguard [Grimoire: Felguard] damage increased 30%.
    • Ability creature felfrenzy [Immutable Hatred] has been redesigned – Your primary Felguard's Legion Strike deals 100% increased damage to its primary target. Your primary Felguard deals Physical damage after auto-attacking the same enemy 3 consecutive times.
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (2) Set Bonus has been redesigned – Demonbolt now applies a Doom Brand that explodes after 20 seconds, dealing Shadow damage to nearby enemies. Hand of Gul'dan reduces the duration of your active Doom Brands by 1 second per Soul Shard spent.
    • Doom Brand damage increased 35%.
    • The chance for Doom Brand to summon a Doomfiend has been increased.
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (4) Set Bonus has been redesigned – When Doom Brand explodes, you have a chance to summon a Doomfiend that casts 5 Doombolt Volleys before departing. Each Doombolt Volley deals Shadow damage to up to 4 nearby enemies.

    • Developers' note: Caustic Presence is doing exceedingly well in single-target situations and even more so when paired with Summon Demonic Tyrant. This reduction in damage is heavy, but Caustic Presence should retain its identity as a useful AoE-centric talent while not becoming the correct answer in all situations. Additionally, we want to keep the synergistic benefit of extending Vilefiend's duration via Summon Demonic Tyrant to capitalize on a stronger Caustic Presence. Lastly, we are increasing the throughput of Demonology's tier set to align with the throughput of other tier sets.
    • Vilefiend's Caustic Presence damage reduced by 50%.
    • Eye of Gul'dan now benefits from Haste and Critical Strike Chance.
    • Pit Lord now benefits from Haste and Critical Strike Chance.

    • Doom Brand is now only applied when consuming a Demonic Core.
    • Ability creature felfrenzy [Immutable Hatred] should no longer be lost if your Felguard is out of range. Instead, he will use it as soon as he is within range.
    • Fixed an issue where Immutable Hatred was still functioning as its previous iteration.
  • Destruction
    • Developers' note: We're removing Madness of the Azj'Aqir and introducing a new talent, Chaosbringer, that increases the output of Chaos Bolt, Shadowburn, and Rain of Fire. Additionally we are adding damage to Chaos Bolt baseline. We are doing this specifically to decrease how penalizing movement can feel as a Destruction Warlock while also making these spells feel more impactful.
    • New Talent: Inv shadowflames wave [Chaosbringer] – Chaos Bolt damage increased by 8/15%. Rain of Fire damage increased by 5/10%. Shadowburn damage increased by 5/10%.

    • Fixed an issue where Dimensional Cinders would benefit twice from Critical Strikes.

Warrior[]

  • Ability warrior rallyingcry [Rallying Cry] now increases current and maximum health by 10% (was 15%).
  • Ability toughness [Inspiring Presence] has been removed.
  • Arms
    • Developers' note: Skullsplitter's immediate expiration of Deep Wounds and Rend caused too much rotational impact and had unintuitive side effects. The redesigned Deep Wounds and Rend interactions should alleviate these issues while providing Arms Warriors a new way to interact with bleed effects.
    • Inv skullsplitter [Skullsplitter] now causes Deep Wounds to bleed out more quickly for a short duration (was expire instantly).
    • Spell shadow bloodboil [Tide of Blood] now also causes your Rend on the target to bleed out 100% faster for 10 seconds.
    • Developer's note: Ignore Pain's interaction with Rage spent mechanics has caused its use to deviate from the intent as pre-emptive mitigation into an offensive rotational ability. We are removing Ignore Pain's interaction with these mechanics to restore it to a purely defensive choice.
    • Rage spent on Ignore Pain no longer contributes to Anger Management, Tactician, and Test of Might.
    • Ability warrior decisivestrike [Slam] damage increased by 25%.
    • Ability warrior decisivestrike [Improved Slam]'s Critical Strike damage increase reduced to 10% (was 30%).
    • All ability damage increased by 6%.
  • Fury
    • Developers' note: Bloodbath's cooldown was not correctly synced with Bloodthirst during the redesign of Reckless Abandon for the Dragonflight talent system. This has led to unintended outcomes where certain builds can allow Bloodbath and Bloodthirst to dominate a rotation due to extremely short, unlinked cooldowns. We are correcting this oversight to allow other builds and rotation options room to breathe in Guardians of the Dream.
    • Spell fire incinerate [Reckless Abandon]'s Bloodbath now shares its cooldown with Bloodthirst.
    • Developers' note: The previous design of Reckless Abandon was influencing builds and rotations too heavily, encouraging players to focus entirely on either Bloodthirst or Raging Blow at the expense of the other. We want Fury Warriors to use both abilities regularly, so we are changing the design slightly so it only affects your rotation choice immediately after using Rampage to open up more build options. These changes will be applied to the 10.2 PTR via hotfix over the course of the week.'
    • Spell fire incinerate [Reckless Abandon] now only empowers your next 1 Bloodthirst or Raging Blow (was 2).
    • Reckless Abandon's Bloodbath and Crushing Blow bonus damage has been doubled.
  • Protection
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (2) Set Bonus has been slightly redesigned – Consuming bleeds now grants a damage taken reduction to the Warrior instead of applying a damage dealt reduction to the target. Now consumes 40% of the remaining Bleed damage (was 100%) when casting Shield Slam.
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (4) Set Bonus – Thunderous Roar cooldown reduction increased to 3 seconds (was 1).
    • Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope (4) Set Bonus: Consuming Thunderous Roar now deals 100% of its remaining damage.
