Greetings, monastic adherents. As you test the set bonuses on PTR, some notes and known issues:

  • Mistweaver 4pc has a known issue which causes it to break Soothing Mist after drinking Thunder Focus Tea. This issue will be resolved in a future build.
  • Brewmaster 4pc will be redesigned in a future build. We’ve heard your feedback that you’d prefer a more focused bonus and will be acting on that desire.

Patch 9.2 PTR – Shadow Priest Set Bonus Changes

Greetings priests,

The Shadow bonuses, specifically the 2-piece bonus, are going to undergo some changes based off the feedback provided. To start, the 2-piece bonus will move its focus to Devouring Plague. As the only spender in the Shadow Priest rotation, and with the abundance of Insanity in the Shadow kit, it seems like a good hook to pivot to. The 4-piece will remain largely unchanged, however, Your Shadow will swap their current single target channel for one that favors AoE situations as well. Thank you for the feedback and we’re eager to hear your thoughts on the next iteration.

Hey there druids,

Both the 2-piece and 4-piece bonuses for Restoration will be changed for a future build. Thank you for your feedback and we’ll continue to watch the ongoing conversations!

Patch 9.2 PTR – Paladin Set Bonus Changes

Hello Paladins,

We’re looking into reports of the Protection Paladin 4 piece bonus not properly casting Judgment when it should be. The intent of this bonus is that it does cast a real Judgment when it triggers – debuff, Holy Power, and damage. Also worth noting, in a coming build, its internal cooldown will be increased from .1 seconds up to 1 second. This will help keep the bonus’s power from scaling out of control when tanking large numbers of enemies at once, while still rewarding the intuitive behavior of “trying to block as many things as you can.”

With regards to the Retribution 2 piece, it is a bug that the set’s Seraphim overwrites an active Seraphim. The intent is that it will extend one, so the value of the 2 piece is consistent whether you are running Seraphim or not.

    • Shadow
      • Fixed an issue where two Rattling Mages summoned from Pallid Command (Runecarving Power) could spawn unintentionally.
      • Fixed an issue where canceling the Pallid Command aura would not despawn the Rattling Mage.

Sepulcher of the First Ones Encounter Journal
The Sepulcher of the First Ones encounter journal was updated in this build, to include more boss descriptions and a more filled out description of the Jailer encounter.
