First of all, there won´t be any more hotifixes until they launch it, i don´t care a bout patch notes, i know everything from wowhead, they won´t make any huge changes not even a week before launch. I don´t have a single reason to be hyped for 7.1.5. They didn´t change ANYTHING, unholy is still sh*t and no changes to it´s gameplay, just buffing bad talents. Survival hunter is now useless spec in terms of diversity, all hunters now have traps, survival is the only melee spec with no stun, AND the lowest dps :)

I have no reason to look forward to the patch except AK catchup so i can reroll :)

I'll have to agree that although unholy isn't amazing dps wise, it's way better than playing frost. However if you have the gear and know how to play unholy you can easily out dps frost even without the bracers. 

I had no problem doing just that last night in heroic EN.

I don't know what you're reading man but there are definitely some buffs coming for unholy in 7.1.5

Actually, Survival is dead last for 75-percentile for Normal, Heroic, and Mythic Emerald Nightmare, and again last for 75-percentile Normal and Heroic Trial of Valor.  At 50-percentile, the only spec Survival beats is Arcane Mage on Normal and Heroic EN, Frost and Arcane Mages for Normal and Heroic ToV, and again is last for Mythic EN.  Just because you can beat other people in a given group does not make a spec better or worse.  What does is the aggregate statistics of hundreds and thousands of parses.  This shows how the spec does compared to others.

Unlike a bunch of people on this post, I am actually excited for 7.1.5.  The micro holidays look fun.  Being able to catch alts up on AK is great.  Really looking forward to Brawler's guild again.  Loved MoP dungeons so I am glad to see their return.  We should be glad that content is being pushed out at a staedy rate as opposed to Warlords.

I don't think they're raising the cap in 7.1.5, that's coming in 7.2 along with the new traits and all that. I could be wrong though.

I feel like you're torn between the lack of a new cap and the fact that you're now capped. You seem unsure about whether to be happy or not :p

      Mythic+ scaling, major Arms Warr changes, another brawl with the blues and more on this week's PTR.
      Another new week on the PTR and another batch of development notes. Mythic + difficulties will scale a little more steeply as the buff to mobs health and damage will go up by 10% instead of the 8 so far. We also have some significant changes to a few classes again, with Arms Warriors getting the biggest and Marksmanship and Beast Mastery Hunters getting Honor Talent tweaks. There are also new legendaries and T20 tweaks, a new concert at the Darkmoon Faire and there's another skirmish with the blues this weekend. We also got the raid testing schedule for the weekend, featuring 4 mythic bosses and an open LFR.

      Hi everyone! There’s a few things to call out for this PTR update:
      First, we’re continuing iteration on 7.2.5 class changes, and this build has some pretty substantial changes for a couple of specs. Arms Warriors in particular have a lot of updates and revisions, and both Marksmanship and Beast Mastery Hunters have several changes to their Honor Talents.
      We’re also continuing to iterate on Tier 20 set bonuses, and have added several new Legendary items in this build. Once the PTR is up (or shortly thereafter), you should be able to find the new Legendaries on Flaskataur in Dalaran if you’d like to give them a try.
      We’ve turned on the Darkmoon Faire for this week as there’s a new band in town! The concert event starts every hour on the half hour. We’d like to get some testing and feedback, so please let us know what you think!
      This build also has a tweak to Mythic Keystone difficulty. Specifically, the amount of health and damage that enemy creatures get from each additional difficulty level is increasing from 8% health and damage to 10% per keystone level. When we increased the overall difficulty of Mythic+ dungeons in 7.2, we didn't fully account for the increase in power that players would get from their new Artifact Traits. That hasn't been a major problem just yet, but once the Tomb of Sargeras raid opens and the maximum item level from drops increases, everyone’s going to get a LOT stronger in a hurry, which will quickly compound the issue. We're making this change to ensure that things don’t get too out of hand at the top end of the spectrum.
      Lastly, we’d like to do another Skirmish with the Blues this week to gather some data on where PvP balance currently sits on the PTR to assist with PvP tuning. We’re scheduling this for Friday, May 26 from 2 PM to 4 PM Pacific time (5 PM to 7 PM Eastern). Any data we can get at this stage will be extremely helpful, so we hope you’ll join us.
      Thanks again everyone, and happy testing!
      Previous dev notes (May 16).

      Last weekend's raid testing was cancelled, but it's back this weekend! Four Mythic bosses will be checked out in Tomb of Sargeras and the raid will be open in Raid Finder on Saturday and Sunday.
      You can also check out our own previews and videos of the bosses getting tested:
      Goroth Demonic Inquisition Sisters of the Moon Mistress Sassz'ine
        Skordyn (source)
      On Thursday and Friday, May 25-26, we will be conducting Mythic raid testing of Tomb of Sargeras bosses.
      Thursday, May 25
      Goroth - Mythic Tomb of Sargeras
      13:00 PST (16:00 EST, 22:00 CEST)
      Demonic Inquisition - Mythic Tomb of Sargeras
      14:00 PST (17:00 EST, 23:00 CEST)
      Friday, May 26
      Sisters of the Moon - Mythic Tomb of Sargeras
      13:00 PST (16:00 EST, 22:00 CEST)
      Mistress Sassz'ine - Mythic Tomb of Sargeras
      14:00 PST (17:00 EST, 23:00 CEST)
      After testing concludes on Friday, we plan to open Raid Finder Tomb of Sargeras over the weekend.
      As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a PTR environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.
      Q: How do I get into the raid zone?
      A: In Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade Sr. in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.)
      Q: What character should I use to test the raid?
      A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players' effective level to 110 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested. For 7.2 raid testing, we'll be granting players all the new 7.2 artifact traits IF players have done the quest to reveal those new traits. Complete the Broken Shore intro experience in order to access this quest.
      Q: How long does testing last?
      A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we're satisfied that we've received that information for a given boss, we'll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees.

      The 7.2.5 class changes are ongoing and the next big thing to get hit is Draught of Souls, but only for Arms and Fury Warriors as it was over-performing. 40% sounds like a lot, but there will be some compensation for the nerf, however, as Fury gets a 5% buff overall and Arms is in the middle of some mechanics changes so it'll definitely get back to even as well.
      Kaivax (source)
      For Arms and Fury Warriors, we’re going to scale down the damage of Draught of Souls in the next build for the 7.2.5 PTR.
      Specifically, we’re aiming for a roughly 40% reduction in the effectiveness of Draught of Souls. For those two specs, it’s a trinket that is extremely valuable due to its interaction with Battle Cry. We’ve already tuned other forthcoming on-use trinkets that drop in Tomb of Sargeras for Arms and Fury with the same modifier to compensate for Battle Cry’s effectiveness in boosting trinkets of this kind. Our goal is for new trinkets to have more similar power levels between various specs, while leaving Draught of Souls in a place where it remains competitive for Arms and Fury.
      We’re making sure to consider this trinket change as we update Warriors in Patch 7.2.5. With this in mind, Fury damage has been increased by 5% across the board. Arms is currently in the middle of receiving some heavy mechanical changes which will require a deeper look into their overall performance, and we’ll account for this change when we do our final tuning.
      We don’t want Draught of Souls to define DPS Warriors for the remainder of the expansion, but we do want Warriors who have one to be able to make good use of it as they progress through Tomb of Sargeras.
      Thank you for all of your feedback!
