The following guide contains a comprehensive list of all class changes added in Patch 9.2.5.


Short Summary of Patch 9.2.5 Class Changes

Blizzard have now finalized a series of class tuning and PvP changes for the Patch 9.2.5 update. The update mainly revolves around PvP changes and overall buffs to multiple specializations, including Beast Mastery Hunters, Windwalker Monks, and more.

Patch 9.2.5 buffs threat generation for tank specializations, meaning all tanks will now generate more threat in combat.


Tank Threat Buffs in Patch 9.2.5

  • All classes now generate more threat when in a tank specialization.
  • Developers' notes: We have heard a lot of feedback about threat loss from the community (and our teammates) since the start of this season. Our design intent is that a tank who is actively directing their damage rotation at an enemy should be able to maintain threat on that enemy, but simple area of effect spells (like Consecration Icon Consecration or Death and Decay Icon Death and Decay) alone should not be sufficient. We have analyzed this situation and feel that a small adjustment to tank threat modifiers should help maintain that balance for the remainder of the expansion.
