It looks like Community Manager Zarhym is clocking some weekend hours, as he's posted today with what should be a very welcome tidbit for most players: The patch 4.3 PTR is almost ready
and could go live with the next week. He also revealed that the PTR will likely have incremental changes. Transmogrification
, void storage
, and a few UI and balance tweaks will likely show up right away, but it may take some time for the new dungeon and raid content to go live.
What this means for the release of patch 4.3 is a little foggier. Will we be going to BlizzCon
with the PTR still chugging away? It sounds like Blizzard's not planning a rush job on this one, so it remains to be seen. Regardless, you'll want to keep it right here. When the PTR goes up, we'll be there with all the news and analysis you'll need to start planning your moves. Check after the break full for the full text of Zarhym's message.
