Update, Feb 21st: Added Skagadin's Grade hotfix in testing.

The new tuning pass that's coming next reset is almost entirely focused on PvP, with the exception of Unholy Death Knights, who receive some buffs. Almost all other classes get changes for PvP, with only Demon Hunters and Monks staying as they currently are.
And if that's just not enough changes for you, you can check out our overview of the class tweaks in the latest PTR build here.

With the next weekly maintenance, we're planning a large round of PvP tuning changes, as well as a few PvE buffs for Unholy. Please see below for the full list of changes that are currently planned. As always, this may not be the final list - additional tuning may be added or removed before these changes go live.
