Changes to Tier 20 Arcane Mage & Assassination Rogue set bonuses are coming, developers discuss possible changes to Mistweaver Monks, Shaman class mount will switch tints between specs and the crafting reagents for Paladin & Warlock class mounts will be re-evaluated in a future 7.2 build.

Arcane Mage Tier 20 2P Set Bonus

Item - Mage T20 Arcane 2P BonusItem - Mage T20 Arcane 2P Bonus will be redesigned to work with other spell than Greater InvisibilityGreater Invisibility to avoid spamming utility buttons for a DPS increase.

We're considering making the set bonus work with some spell other than Greater InvisibilityGreater Invisibility, to avoid overloading a utility button with a rotational DPS benefit.

Mistweaver Monks & Mythic Raiding

The MW community feels their spots in Mythic raids are jeopardized and progression hampers their class. No immediate changes are planned, but Sigma drafted possible future changes.

Much like the Disc post in the other thread, Mistweaver is more in a state of thinking ahead for possible refinements, but no immediate shake-ups. This is preliminary, but a possible direction is that some things could be smoothed out by reducing the emphasis on Essence FontEssence Font. That could help with, for example, drawing out more of a regular ongoing decision between Enveloping MistEnveloping Mist, VivifyVivify, and EffuseEffuse, rather than having that so often pushed out by Essence FontEssence Font. Also, making the value of mastery more stable, and reducing the importance of churning as much mana into Essence FontEssence Fonts as possible. For fair warning, a cooldown on EF is not out of the question after seeing how it's played out, but that would come alongside seeing how other heals might have to be strengthened.

Rising ThunderRising Thunder has wound up underperforming which we would likely look at at the same time. It would likely be helped regardless by changes that made it easier to spend mana and GCDs on Rising Sun KickRising Sun Kick, without always taking away from something like an Essence FontEssence Font.

Paladin & Warlock Class Mounts Requirements

Both classes need expensive materials to craft their class mounts. Requirements will be re-examined soon.

Why do only the Warlock and Paladin class mount quests require obscenely expensive mats? Its a bit ridiculous we alone have to spend tons of gold to get our mounts and no other classes do.

I posted this in the main thread, but cross-posting it here for visibility - we'll be re-examining the rare material requirement for the Paladin and Warlock class mounts, we don't want the gate for these to be an expensive tradeskill material. 

Tier 20 Assassination Rogue 2P Set Bonus

The bonus to GarroteGarrote would only make sense while picking ExsanguinateExsanguinate or in a situation where you keep up two GarroteGarrotes. It's needless to say that after multiple RuptureRuptures are up, GarroteGarrote may not be worth using.

The 2-piece will get some single-target benefit. That said, part of the benefit of the bonus is the improved multi-target capability that GarroteGarrote has with a shorter cooldown.

Shaman Class Mount Adjustments

Currently, Enhancement Shamans have a fiery appearance for their class mount (Farseer's Raging TempestFarseer's Raging Tempest), which will be fixed in a future update. The spec will switch mount tints with Elemental.

 In the next PTR build, elemental will be fiery, and enhancement will be stormy.

We are also making changes to the resto version to make it more watery, and remove the strobe effects.

      The Darkshore Warfront is available now on Heroic difficulty for Alliance players, meaning it's time to get your piece of gear that is equivalent to Heroic Ny'alotha loot (item level 460).
      Alliance players have access to the Warfront: The Battle for Darkshore quest in Boralus that rewards 15 7th Legion Service Medals, one item level 460 gear piece, and Artifact Power.
      You can purchase the Sandy Nightsaber mount if you completed the Battle for Darkshore on Heroic difficulty (Heroic: War for the Shore) and have spare  350 7th Legion Service Medals.
      "A rare color for a nightsaber, and rarely seen, they are prized amongst huntresses."

      You can find out more information on all mounts by visiting our 8.3 Mounts Compendium.

      The beta opt-in support page has been recently updated and now would be a good time to opt in for Shadowlands Beta if you haven't done that already.
      Blizzard (Source)
      To put your name into the pool of candidates interested in beta testing for Shadowlands, sign up on the Shadowlands home page using the Beta Opt-In link at the top of the page.

      Signing up for beta does not guarantee you will be chosen to participate, but players who have not signed up to indicate interest cannot be chosen. Customer Support is not able to provide access to beta. Blizzard has released the first encrypted Shadowlands Alpha build earlier this week and added the forthcoming expansion to the Battle.net App Catalog, suggesting that Friends & Family Alpha is really close. Opt in for Shadowlands Beta by visiting the link below!

      Blizzard has shipped an encrypted build for Shadowlands Alpha, meaning it cannot be datamined just yet, but we're getting really close to the F&F Alpha announcement. 
      Earlier today, Blizzard added Shadowlands to the Battle.net App Catalog and now the first build has been shipped. Unfortunately, it is still encrypted, so it cannot be datamined at this time. You can learn more about Shadowlands in our overview in the meantime and stay tuned for Shadowlands Friends & Family Alpha!
