    World of Warcraft Patch 6.2.2 PTR

    Updated: August 19, 2015

    Flying on Draenor

    Flying has been enabled on Draenor for characters that have attained the account-wide achievement, Draenor Pathfinder. To help facilitate testing of this feature, accounts that have not yet obtained the achievement will be able to purchase a Manual of Rapid Pathfinding from Flaskataur in their Garrisons on the PTR.

    • Please note there may still be areas or pockets on Draenor where flying has not yet been fully implemented. These areas will be tracked and listed in a forum thread titled "Flight in Draenor – Reported Bugs Thread" on the PTR Discussion forum.

    PvP Mercenary Mode

    Players will be able to act as a mercenary for the opposite faction in PvP whenever your faction is experiencing a long wait time to get into Ashran or unrated Battlegrounds. Agents of the enemy faction will appear in your base in Ashran (Stormshield for the Alliance, Warspear for the Horde) and allow you to enter Ashran or Battlegrounds disguised as an enemy player, and actually fight as the opposite faction. While competing as a mercenary, players will automatically have their race changed into one appropriate for the opposite faction. Players will still be able to earn all the same rewards as winning or losing as their original faction (with the exception of faction-specific achievements).

    • This feature is still in development and is not available initially on the PTR. Mercenary Mode will be enabled later in the PTR process.
    • See the blog “In Development: PvP Mercenary Mode” for more information.

    New Timewalking Rewards

    L'arena fa schifo
    Boh ti sei risposto da solo.
    io se gioco hunter posso swicciare in un altra spec che fa dps, non certo posso swicciare in una spec che cura o fa da tank.
    il prete può swicciando, cambiare completamente ruolo.vogliamo riconoscere l'immenso vantaggio che questo comporta.
    Questo significa, essere una classe ibrida.
    Io come gm o come raid leader tra gildare/portarmi un dps puro o portarmi un ibrido che può fare dps o curare questo lo valuto già, se poi una classe ibrida mi fa anche lo stesso dps di un dps puro, solo un emerito imbecille porterebbe o gilderebbe dps puri.
    Giochi da tanti anni ma non abbastanza, Medivh ha fatto un esempio calzantissino, per anni chi faceva il doppio ruolo si smazzava per avere due set equipolenti per poter giocare entrambe le spec ed a quei tempi se un ibrido ti faceva la richiesta di essere un dps equivalente ad uno puro, chi + chi meno si era tutti d'accordo visto quello che dovevano passare. Oggi cambiano solo i trinket e l'anello leggendario e sei pronto a swicciare da dps a healer in un raid (i druidi, poracci loro, invece si devono smazzare di +)
    Ti ripeto parla con qualcuno che gioca il prete in raid e che ha anche altre classi, io ho un prete e gioco anche altre classi e con preti che raidano con me e che lo hanno di main o lo hanno di alt, ma ci raidano, abbiamo tutti concordato che con qui buff il prete diventa toppo sgravo, diventando in singolo pari ad un arca mage ed in multi distanziando tutte le altre classi e di parecchio.

    Non entro nel merito del prete shadow, perchè credo che basti dare una letta ai simcraft da qui e cata per avere un quadro generale della situazion pve della classe.

    Quello che non comprendo bene è il discorso "classe ibrida". Sappiamo tutti di cosa si parla, ma trovo abbastanza patetico pensare che un ibrido, in quanto tale, dovrebbe curare meno, o fare meno danno, o tankare peggio, per giustificare il fatto che possa switchare.

    In sostanza allora qualunque roster solido e competitivo avrebbe convenienza a cercare sempre ruoli puri piuttosto che ibridi, e piazzare l'ibrido solo quando non si sa bene se possa servire un healer in più, o un pò di dps in aggiunta...ma è poco intelligente anche pensare che su questa scorta poi qualcuno giocherebbe una classe ibrida, consapevole di dover per necessità di cose "essere meno performante" in qualunque ruolo il suo ibrido possa specializzarsi.

    Tra l'altro, mi sfugge il principio per il quale lo switch di spec è considerato un grande vantaggio, quando con un alt si fa la stessa cosa. Forse c'è qualche piccolo vantaggio sul gear, ma nemmeno troppissimo e non certo per tutti gli ibridi...

    Poi oh, ognuno liberissimo di avere le proprie idee, ma paragonare maghi e preti shadow boh, ma lascia quella sensazione di trolling...
