Patch 7.2.5 PTR: New Class Legendary Rings

13 posts in this topic

28742-legendary-drop-rate-clarifications

 

The new 7.2.5 build is up and running and we're getting a look at the class-specific legendary rings that were mentioned in the Q&A. They aren't finished yet and not all of them have been implemented, but for now it seems like each class (and probably each spec) is getting a free talent from of the rings (and, less relevantly, a socket), with the Soul of the x nomenclature.

More rings will be added with subsequent PTR builds, and possibly even in this build, but their purpose seems clear already.

Maybe that can do what they originally intended with legendaries and give us a totally utility based talent and just let this be something we actually work towards. Hunter one is DEFINITELY unbalanced between the specs.

For those wonder what effects the talents have:

Hunter: Soul of the HuntmasterSoul of the Huntmaster

Survival: Animal InstinctsAnimal Instincts

Demon Hunter and Mage items are currently pointing to the incorrect talents.

They already have this as a talent to chose, so no gain there then?

no what it means is you get that talent by default and can choose a second one. they are basically giving us 8 talents instead of 7. so while they are choosing which set we get the talent from, getting 2 options in one row is actually amazing and im happy to see them doing it. the dps charts though are going to be insane XD

that being said im super excited, i was getting pretty burnt out on this expac, but this is some refreshing new stuff :D

lets just see what fresh hells we have to go through to get them though, is it same deal as random drop or will we be farming 10 thousand whatevers or rep?

Sorry, but though this looks cool and having an eighth talent will obviously be a nice boost, there in lies the problem. Once again, you will need RNJesus on your side if you want to be relevant in high level raiding. I didn't get my shoulders, as a BM Hunter, until a few weeks ago. Because of that, I could not seriously compete for spots in great mythic guilds. It is not that I could not do enough to be viable, but there were so many others, with the right legiondaries, that I simply had no chance against. Now that I finally have the shoulders, it appears that they will be nerfed to the ground and the belt will be BiS, which I do not have. Adding items like this, based on RNG, is simply terrible for this game. Those who have are fine, those who don't are behind the curve. One more thing I need to worry about getting to stay competitive.

Hmm by the name of those rings it sounds like they could be a reward for Orderhall campaign?

If not and they drop rng they can easily be yet another "must have of get the *beeep* off" item. Exactly what they tried to "fix" the last few patches..... World of RNGJesuscraft again it seems :(.

I think it's a safe bet they'll be from a quest like or something similar, basically helping people out that have a shitty 2nd legendary or none at all.

I love it how Blizzard said that they didn't want to make legendaries that would switch powers between specs... and then they go and do just that.

They didn't seem to have gone for the really powerful talent rows though, at least not for Hunters (I can't tell for other classes), so these new legendaries seem unimpressive to me.

Honestly if they're going to introduce another legendary like that, I think it should be for a 3rd slot, but your third slot can only be that ring. The hunter one especially seems fantastic (maybe the BM talent needs to change though, if you've got any of the top legendaries you already spend most of the fight with too much focus anyway).

Would also make sense to gate this legendary behind quite a long questline, maybe something similar to balance of power. Won't even consider it worth my time though if it counts towards your two legendaries though.

I also think these rings should be for a third legendary slot. At this point everyone should have at least three legendaries, which was one of the reasons they said they didn't want to add the ability to wear a third legendary. Make it a questline to unlock the ability to wear them and to get them.

      Tier 21 set bonus tuning continues for Restoration Druids, Mistweaver Monks and other classes as we approach Antorus testing on PTR.
      This week's 7.3 PTR build is now live and Blizzard has started the usual communication revolving around Tier 21 set bonuses. To check out the most recent changes, visit our Patch 7.3 Build 24651 Overview.
      Restoration Druid
      The most recent T21 4P bonus will be changed in a future patch to a 100% chance to grant the Awakened buff for 10 seconds.
      Item - Druid T21 Restoration 4P Bonus - Ysera's Gift Heals Faster - When you cast Wild Growth, you have a 50% chance to cause Ysera's Gift to heal a target 400% more frequently for 10 sec. Blizzard (Source)
      I'm unsure if the build that went up today has this change or not, but I recently changed the 4-piece bonus to be a 100% chance on Wild Growth to grant 5 seconds of the Awakened buff (instead of 50% chance for 10 seconds).

      If that is not in the build that went up today, it should be in the next build. Mistweaver Monk
      T21 2P (Item - Monk T21 Mistweaver 2P Bonus - Gust of Mists Applies Absorb) has been fixed and the HoT can now critically hit. T21 4P (Item - Monk T21 Mistweaver 4P Bonus - Renewing Mist Casts Heal Gust of Mist Targets) is a flat % proc rate and i doesn't use a deck of cards. Blizzard (Source)
      I just fixed the 2 piece HoT to correctly be able to critical strike.

      The 4-piece bonus does not use a deck of cards, it is just a flat percentage proc rate. Holy Paladin
      In a future build, there will be an entirely new T21 4P for Holy Paladins. The most recent one is
      Item - Paladin T21 Holy 4P Bonus - Blessing of Sacrifice Reduction - When a target with your Beacon of Light on them falls below 50% health, the cooldown of Blessing of Sacrifice is reduced by 20.0 sec. This can only occur once every 10 sec. Blizzard (Source)
      In a future build you will have a different 4-piece set bonus. Discipline Priest
      For the sake of simplicity, Smite will be removed from the T21 4P bonus (Item - Priest T21 Discipline 4P Bonus - Power Word: Radiance Buffs Smite/Penance).
      Blizzard (Source)
      I will remove Smite from the set bonus for simplicity sake. The next PTR build should have that change. Arms/Fury Warrior
      Item - Warrior T21 Arms 4P Bonus - Mortal Strike Buffs WW/Slam & Item - Warrior T21 Fury 2P Bonus - Rampage Damage Over Time are currently bugged and will be fixed soon.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Arms: 

      2 Piece: Quite smooth from a playstyle perspective.It's quite similar to IFTK in providing an 8 second buff. Can be maintained regularly, but I'd suggest that it be triggered by Warbreaker as well, just as IFTK does.

      4 Piece: Broken on PTR as of July 26, 2AM PST. Might change in the future.

      The 4P makes me think of a reverse Focused Rage where MS is the one buffing the filler. My only concern is that a single stack of the buff from MS is enough of a damage increase to Slam/WW, which is mostly a tuning issue. The 4P fits seamlessly into the the Arms rotation without making me go out of my way to cast anything extra. 

      Fury: 

      2 Piece: The tooltip seems wrong, it's currently doing 10% of Rampage's dmg in bleed form instead of 30%. 

      It's effect screams the Valarjar Berserker and Soul of the Battlelord. A simple passive that could be quite powerful. 

      4 Piece: The damage multiplier is broken right now. Though the tooltip says 0% buff to next Rampage after casting BC, it's several hundred percent. With that being said, the damage from Rampage would need to be enough for us to recover from the loss of CoF, which means less overall casts of BC.
      I am investigating the issues with the Arms 4p and Fury 2p. I corrected the tooltip for the Fury 4p bonus. Thanks for the reports.
      I believe all of the problems listed in this thread will be fixed in the next PTR build. Thanks again for reporting the problems.

      After the maintenance's over in your region, there are several hotfixes that will come into effect. The third LFR Wing of the Tomb is now available with Maiden of Vigilance and Fallen Avatar. There's a new PvP Brawl and you can get up to 50% more reputation from World Quests.
      Hotfixes & Tomb of Sargeras Mythic Nerfs
      Many hotfixes related to PvE & PvP will be live once maintenance ends in your region. The Tomb of Sargeras nerfs make the final two encounters easier, so expect a lot more Kil'jaeden Mythic kills in the coming days. Tomb of Sargeras LFR Wing #3
      Chamber of the Avatar opens with Maiden of Vigilance and Fallen Avatar. Mythic Keystone Affixes
      Teeming // Quaking // Fortified World Quests Bonus Event (July 25 - August 1)
      For the duration of the event, reputation gained from World Quests is increased by 50% (Sign of the Emissary). This is great for farming reputation Paragon caches / mounts or unlock flying. The weekly quest "The World Awaits" rewards 5,000 Order Resources once you complete 20 world quests. PvP Brawl: Arathi Blizzard (July 25 - August 1)
      Put away your bathing suit, pull out your parka, and enter a winter wonderland as the Arathi Basin you know and love gets a fresh coat of ice and snow. You'll be racing your way between the farm, stables, mine, lumberyard, and blacksmith through piles of snow and over a - mostly - frozen lake. One more thing: the weather forecast calls for a bit of fog of war. We hope you're prepared for the weather. (Source) Don't forget to complete the weekly quest "Something Different" to get Brawler's Footlocker, 3 Marks of Honor and Soldier's Legacy (AP token). Kirin Tor Tavern Crawl (July 31)
      The mages of Azeroth like to relax, too. Hop into a portal at your watering hole and join the Tavern Crawl. The micro-holiday is centered around inns. You talk to a NPC that will teleport you to various inns across Azeroth where you can interact with unique objects. You stay there for a short period and teleport to another tavern. It's the first time Tavern Crawl's up, because it was disabled in the past. The event was suffering from issues that couldn't be hotfixed. Find our more about Tavern Crawl in our micro-holiday preview. World Boss Drugon
      Look for the epic World Quest "The Frozen King" in Highmountain.

      In the latest 7.3 PTR build, Validated Doomsayers now appear in Dalaran giving players various pamphlets heralding Azeroth's demise, citizens are dazed, can't be cured or talk gibberish.
      The event is very similar to Cataclysm and those creatures are obviously a Hearthstone reference (Validated Doomsayer). Concerned and Scared Citizens are curious about what's going on. Terrified Citizens are affected by fear (Frightened), other citizens do not feel well (Inexplicable Feeling).
      Some interesting conversations from Dalaran:
      Validated Doomsayer yells: The Light has forsaken us!
      Validated Doomsayer yells: Our time ends, the cleansing is nigh!
      Dalaran Citizen says: They say it's all in your head, but this... this is different. I swear!
      Olisarra the Kind says: Pretty soon, we'll have to send people off site for help. I just don't think we have the resources here to maintain any semblance of order.
      Dalaran Citizen says: Is it normal to see stars?
