Patch 4.2 PTR updates for June 6


Patch 4.2 PTR has been updated with a few new numbers on some spells and some minor rewording. Of note, hunters are getting a Black Arrow buff, mages are getting a minor Arcane Blast damage nerf, and Brazie's Sunflower is now updated to let you know that it, indeed, sings.

A new staff, Sho'ravon, Greatstaff of Annihilation, has been found as a drop from Ragnaros. Looks like Sho'ravon is every other caster's consolation prize for not getting Dragonwrath.

Hit the jump for all the changes.

  • Thrash: Deals AP*0.0982+932 to AP*0.0982+1150 damage, and causes all targets within 8 yards to bleed for (AP * 0.0167 + 581 * 3) damage over 6 sec.
  • Black Arrow: Fires a Black Arrow at the target, dealing 2850 Shadow damage over 15 sec. Black Arrow shares a cooldown with other Fire Trap spells.
  • Arcane Blast: Blasts the target with energy, dealing 1625 to 1887 Arcane damage. Each time you cast Arcane Blast, the damage of Arcane Blast and Arcane Explosion is increased by 10%, Arcane Blast casting time is reduced by 0.1 sec and Arcane Blast mana cost is increased by 150%. Effect stacks up to 4 times and lasts 6 sec or until any Arcane damage spell except Arcane Blast or Arcane Explosion is cast.
  • Hemorrhage: An instant strike that deals 155% weapon damage ((155 * 1.45)% if a dagger is equipped) and causes the target to take 30% additional damage from Bleed effects for 1 min. Awards 1 combo point.
