Patch 4.3.2 PTR official patch notes

Patch 4.3.2 is going to be a relatively minor patch, with one or two big changes -- the 64-bit game client we mentioned earlier today and the cross-realm Raid Finder feature. This is not a content patch, it's a patch with new features (rather than new dungeons or raids). That said, there's still a handful of class changes also going live with patch 4.3.2, and the official patch notes posted earlier today helpfully point them all out.

  • In the Raid Finder, players can no longer win multiple copies of the same item on a single roll.

  • Vengeance will no longer be triggered by taking damage from other players.

  • Hunters, Aspect of the Hawk will now grant roughly 35% more attack power.

  • Priests, Mass Dispel should now be working correctly and prefer dispelling targets that have magic affects that can actually be dispelled.


World of Warcraft Patch 4.3.2

Classes: General
Dungeons & Raids

  • Vengeance is no longer triggered by receiving damage from other players.

  • The Tier 13 Balance Druid 4-piece bonus now also increases the damage of Starsurge by 10%, in addition to its current effect.

  • Aspect of the Hawk now grants roughly 35% more attack power.

  • Deterrence now also reduces damage taken by 30% while active.

  • Black Arrow now ticks every 2 seconds for 20 seconds, as opposed to every 3 seconds for 15 seconds. The total damage dealt by the ability is unchanged.

  • Lock and Load no longer benefits Arcane Shot, nor is it consumed by Arcane Shot.

  • Fireball damage has been reduced by roughly 6%.

  • Pyroblast damage has been reduced by roughly 6%.

  • Holy Radiance now costs 40% of base mana, up from 35%.

  • Mass Dispel should again prefer dispelling targets that have magic effects that can be dispelled.

  • You can now form same-faction raids with Real ID friends, allowing you to enter Raid Finder in groups larger than 5, run older normal or heroic raids, or participate in Battlegrounds. You will not yet be able to run normal or heroic Dragon Soul with cross-realm raids of Real ID friends.

  • Several typo fixes and clarified descriptions have been added to the Dungeon Journal entries for Dragon Soul.

  • Players can no longer win multiple copies of the same item on a single Raid Finder boss kill. For example, a player who chooses Need on two set piece tokens or two weapons and wins the first, will not be eligible for the second on that particular boss.

Brace yourselves for what could be some of most exciting updates to the game recently with patch 4.3.
