WoW 5.3 PTR Patch Notes - Updated April 22

Date: Apr 22 2013 Views: ( ) Comments ()

The 5.3 PTR Patch Notes were updated today. Big changes include the following:

  • Experience needed from 85-90 was reduced by 33%.
  • Pandaren Spirit Pet Supplies now has a chance to drop a family specific rare Battle-Stone.
  • Completing the Challenge mode daily quest now awards a Heroic Cache of Treasures with a chance to contain an epic item!
  • Protection for bad luck streaks have been added to Battle-Stones from pet supplies bags and wild battles. Each bag or battle that does not provide a stone has a progressively better chance to award a stone to the player.
  • Reduced the number of Lesser Charms of Good Fortune needed for the Mogu Runes of Fate weekly quest to 50, down from 90. Edit: Seems like the Lesser Charms of Good Fortune change got sped up a bit--it's a hotfix happening late tonight!
  • Numerous class changes, including Tranquility now targeting 12 raid members when used in a 25-player instance.
  • Many trinkets have had their on-use effects reduced, but their duration increased, when used in a Battleground or Arena.

Lesrms and Worser Chald Boss Loot Hotfixes

Two big changes are coming via hotfixes soon--Mogu Runes of Fate require 50 Lesser Charms, down from 90, and players from other realms can get loot from Oondasta and Nalak once more.

We're deploying a hotfix late tonight that will reduce the number of Lesser Charm of Good Fortune required to purchase 3 Mogu Rune of Fate from 90 down to 50. Meaning when you log in Tuesday and purchase your 3 Mogu Rune of Fate, which are used for 5.2 raid boss bonus rolls, it will only cost you 50 Lesser Charm of Good Fortune.

We recommend waiting until after the scheduled Tuesday maintenance to ensure this change has gone through before purchasing your Runes. Maintenance is currently scheduled to begin Tuesday, April 23, at 5:00 a.m. PDT.

Back in early March we made a hotfix to remove loot and bonus roll eligibility for players that defeated Oondasta and Nalak while visiting from a different realm. At the time, the change was made to address realm stability issues. Since then, we've address those issues by making tuning adjustments for Oondasta such as increasing the spawn rate, and reducing Oondasta's health by 50%.

In an upcoming hotfix, players coalesced from a different realm will be eligible to receive loot or use a bonus roll after defeating Oondasta or Nalak once more. Keep in mind, players are still only eligible to receive loot or use a bonus roll once a week.

This change will take effect in each region after their scheduled weekly realm maintenance.
