Blizzard released the patchnotes for the current PTR build of 4.3.2. Surprisingly short this time, Blizzard seems very content with overall class balance. Of course the main feature is going to be the cross-realm functionality. There are some much needed adjustments nevertheless, first and foremost buffs to the guys in green and nerfs to the guys in blue. Oh and I believe every PvP player will cry out in joy for the removal of Vengeance from damage caused by players. So guys, if you play a blood-specced death knight in battlegrounds: Get your zerg on as long as it lasts!
Vengeance is no longer triggered by receiving damage from other players.
The Tier 13 Balance Druid 4-piece bonus now also increases the damage of Starsurge by 10%, in addition to its current effect.
Aspect of the Hawk now grants roughly 35% more attack power.
Deterrence now also reduces damage taken by 30% while active.
Black Arrow now ticks every 2 seconds for 20 seconds, as opposed to every 3 seconds for 15 seconds. The total damage dealt by the ability is unchanged.
Lock and Load no longer benefits Arcane Shot, nor is it consumed by Arcane Shot.
Fireball damage has been reduced by roughly 6%.
Pyroblast damage has been reduced by roughly 6%.
Holy Radiance now costs 40% of base mana, up from 35%.
Mass Dispel should again prefer dispelling targets that have magic effects that can be dispelled.
Dungeons & Raids
You can now form same-faction raids with Real ID friends, allowing you to enter Raid Finder in groups larger than 5, run older normal or heroic raids, or participate in Battlegrounds. You will not yet be able to run normal or heroic Dragon Soul with cross-realm raids of Real ID friends.
Several typo fixes and clarified descriptions have been added to the Dungeon Journal entries for Dragon Soul.
Players can no longer win multiple copies of the same item on a single Raid Finder boss kill. For example, a player who chooses Need on two set piece tokens or two weapons and wins the first, will not be eligible for the second on that particular boss.
