Patch 4.3 is now up on the PTR, as well as the official patch 4.3 patch notes. With the latest build comes a rather large amount of changes for shaman of all three talent specializations. Some come as no shock; others were things I don't think many of us planned on seeing. Everything, though, see...

We've seen the live patch notes, pleasant patch surprises and the changes between PTR and live in 2.3. Now, the good citizens of Azeroth present the undocumented Patch 2.3 changes on WoWWiki and World of Raids. All the little changes are listed on the pages, so we've chosen to highlight the biggest ...

Another patch has gone up on the PTR, bringing new visions of a possible future for World of Warcraft players. We've read a lot of patch notes in our time, agonized over what nerfs might be coming to our class, and waited with great anticipation new features and dungeons. Once we even saw how to w...

After having had some fun on the PTRs, patch 2.1.3 has gone live this morning. It's still pretty much a small bug-fix patch; here are the notes: World of Warcraft Client Patch 2.1.3 General Read in-game mail will now be kept for thirty days instead of three. The Warlock spell Incinerate has h...

Patch 2.1.3, a small bug-fix release, is apparently now up on the public test realms. Here are the patch notes: World of Warcraft Client Patch 2.1.3 General • The Warlock spell Incinerate has had the performance of its graphical spell effect improved. • The "show launcher" option h...

Every patch has its patch notes listing changes. However, for reasons that are not entirely clear to me, every patch also comes with a bunch of undocumented changes, not listed in the patch notes. Thanks to WoW's tireless army of enthusiasts, many of these changes come to light, and are collected in...

As predicted by Nethaera, patch 2.1.2 is now available for download, although of course the realms are still down for a few more hours. The patch weighs in at 42 MB (at least the Mac version). Full patch notes are after the cut; here's the differences from the original PTR patch 2.1.2: Players w...

While I have to admit, I wouldn't normally have thought of the Shaman forums as being the party place to be lately, this thread claiming that it had the 2.2 Patch Notes has certainly lived up to that feeling more than most. Sure, some of it is pretty dark (such as the part claiming that they've j...

Not *quite* as short as last time, but 2.1.1 is not a major patch by anyone's reckoning (unless, you know, you're all about "The Fel and the Furious"). Clocking in at 1.84MB on the PC and 3.45 MB on the Mac, here's what you'll be getting: World of Warcraft Client Patch 2.1.1 Bugs Players will no...

Continued from part 1, part 2 Tempest Keep: The Botanica Bloodwarder Protector's Crystal Strike may now be dodged and parried. Tempest-Forge Peacekeepers now deal Physical melee damage instead of Arcane, and now longer perform the Arcane Blast ability on Heroic difficulty. The duration of V...

Continued from part 1 Items The majority of level 70 epic items have been upgraded to reflect their intended power. Armor: All Burning Crusade items that spent part of their budget on increased armor have been re-evaluated. Some gained additional armor, while others gained other additional...

The PTR has been patched again, and this time World of Raids diffed up the changes between this latest version of the PTR patch notes and the prevous version. Here's the changes that strike me as notable: Characters can now speak with Orphan Matron Mercy in Shattrath City during Children's We...

There was a sizable patch to the 2.1 PTRs today, but as usual, Blizzard just updated the patch notes without specifically highlighting the differences. A few new changes have surfaced in forum strife, like the nerf to the DPS tailoring sets (though that nerf has since been rescinded), but many seem ...

Even with such massive documentation, it turns out there are still undocumented and under-documented changes on the 2.1 PTRs. For instance, specific numbers have been discovered on a few things that were left vague: Circle of Healing now heals for an extra 25 HP at max rank (5% more) Primal Ne...

The 2.1 PTR notes have now been released for all to see. However, they are very long, at about 9500 words. For comparison, that's about 40% as long as Kafka's "Metamorphosis" (and almost as depressing, depending on what class you're playing). So I thought it might be helpful to make a condensed vers...

Here's the rest of them; first part here. Please leave comments back over on the first part. - Hellfire Citadel: Blood Furnace Shadowmoon Adepts on Heroic now double attack instead of triple attack on occasion. Laughing Skull Legionnaire no longer uses the "Sweeping Strikes" ability. Shadowmoon Te...

There are a few constants in World of Warcraft. Mages will pull aggro. People in the forums will complain about every class, build, area, and profession. And as patches draw closer, people will make fake patch notes. So normally I wouldn't even bother posting something like this (unless it was unusu...

I don't know if you could call this "Guide to Writing Fake Patch Notes" hilarious, but I think it is at least chuckleworthy. Flibble of Draenor (the realm, not the shattered world) has put together a quick guide on how to trick sites exactly like this one into believing your patch notes. And in doin...

Update: aside from being a dupe post, these are definitely fake. We posted recently about some potential patch notes for the upcoming 2.1.0 content patch, and now Ming's got vastly expanded "leaked" patch notes. I put "leaked" in quotations because these don't feel quite legit to me -- the language ...
