BUFF e NERF per classi e Congreghe annunciati da Blizzard sul PTR con la 9.0.5

Condividi su WhatsApp  WhatsApp

PTR Blizzard – Gli sviluppatori di World of Warcraft hanno pubblicato una lista di interventi sul forum ufficiale, che riguarda specificatamente il reame pubblico di prova, e che quindi sbarcherà presto anche sul live una volta superato il periodo di “test”.

Stiamo parlando dell’aggiornamento 9.0.5, patch che introduce svariati bilanciamenti per Classi e Congreghe, ma anche dei più leggeri fix come quello fatto a livello grafico sulla resa del mantello indossato dai personaggi Forsaken (che ora si presenta con uno squarcio al centro della schiena, come mostrato poco sotto).

Finiscono quindi sotto il mirino dei devs il Demon Hunter Havoc (buff al talento Unbound Chaos), il Druido Resto (buff per Rejuvenation e Wild Growth), ma anche il Monaco Mistweaver (che riceve uno sconto al costo in mana di Vivify e Renewing Mist), il Paladino Holy (l’Holy Shock costa un pochino di più rispetto a prima), ed i Sacerdoti Discipline ed Holy.

Inoltre, ricevono interessanti modifiche il Rogue Assassination, lo Sciamano (che vede un nerf per il Resto, ed un buff per Elemental ed Enhancement) ed il Warlock Demonology. Corposo anche il reparto modifiche alle Congreghe (comprese le modifiche alle abilità di classe), che secondo quanto riportato da Kaivax andrà a colpire sostanzialmente tutte e 4 quelle presenti su WoW.

Ecco i dettagli (troverete qui la fonte ufficiale) svelati da Blizzard sul PTR:
