There’s always a disclaimer for patches and expansions on test servers that things can and will change over the course of their stay there. This is proving true for World of Warcraft’s Patch 7.2 this week, as the devs have decided to get rid of an order hall upgrade that would award relics with bonus traits.
“In the next PTR build, you’ll see that we’ve replaced the final order hall research (which caused relics to gain a second trait at random) with one that grants a chance for artifact power rewards from world quests to be doubled,” the team said. “We’re doing this for a few reasons, the largest of which being that we simply weren’t satisfied with the current state of the system.”
The build has several other adjustments to the formation of 7.2, including another pass at the new Nethershards currency system, tweaks to artifact traits, and a few buffs and nerfs for class skills. The devs will be focusing their efforts on play testing the arena over this next week and invited the community to join in with them.
Meanwhile, Blizzard has announced that it’s cracked down on guilds selling raids and dungeon-clears for real-world cash.
The studio requests that players who spy shady RMT report it.
