Condividi su WhatsApp  WhatsApp

WoW PTR & Retail – Nuove ed importanti modifiche sono state presentate alla community di World of Warcraft dagli sviluppatori Blizzard, impegnati non solo ad intervenire sulla versione live del gioco ma anche e soprattutto sul PTR che sta in questo momento ospitando la nuova patch 9.1 Chains of Domination.

Iniziando proprio da questa, segnaliamo che la recente fase di test sul nuovo raid Sanctum of Domination è stata purtroppo annullata a causa di alcuni problemi con i server (la sessione era prevista per ieri sera), e che quindi bisognerà aspettare qualche giorno prima di scoprire quando verrà fissato un nuovo appuntamento per testare l’incursione ed i suoi boss.

Sempre nel PTR abbiamo poi anche visto l’introduzione di una nuova e corposa patch che serve a bilanciare molteplici contenuti, tra cui anche le classi del Demon Hunter Havoc e del Rogue Subtlety. Entrambe ricevono infatti dei sostanziali buff ai danni di alcune abilità, con il Demon Hunter che vede ad esempio aumentare del 15% la potenza del suo Demon’s Bite, ma anche del talento Demon Blades, del Chaos Strike e dell’Annihilation.

Anche per il Rogue sono in arrivo dei buff, che servono a potenziare (oltre al resto) anche il suo Backstab ed il talento Gloomblade, entrambi aumentati del 20%.
Ecco tutti i dettagli:
