PTR Notes: Changes for 8/28

Eliah Hecht

The PTR's been refreshed once again. By way of World of Raids, here's what's new for 2.2:
  • General
    • Haste: Haste has been rebalanced. It has returned to the ratios from the launch of Burning Crusade. Melee attacks and spell casts will now benefit at identical rates from haste. This change results in a reduction in the benefit of haste for melee attacks and an increase in the benefit for spellcasters.
  • Items
    • Increased the duration of the Mystical Skyfire Diamond's cast speed buff to 10 seconds.
  • Professions
    • Alchemy
      • Flask of Shadow Fortification will transform into the Flask of Pure Death. This new flask increases Frost, Fire, and Shadow spell damage.
      • Flask of Arcane Fortification will transform into the Flask of Blinding Light. This new flask increases Holy, Nature, and Arcane spell damage.
      • A new flask that increases all resists and stats has been added to the Violet Eye reputation vendor.
And I agree with the sentiment of this commenter on the WoR post; Flask of Pure Death is possibly the best name for any game item ever. On a related note (and as you can probably guess from the fact that a new PTR build just went live), Drysc informs us that the patch is indeed not coming this morning. Anyone have a PTR client installed and can go check out what the new Violet Eye flask is?
