Patch 7.2 Continues to Develop on the PTR
Despite some technical issues, development of the next major Warcraft patch continues apace on the PTR server. Some of the most notable changes include:
- The Obliterum Forge and its associated ‘unlock’ questline have been removed
- The first stage of the new Broken Shore Quest hub is live
- A new Southshore v Tarran Mill PvP Skirmish has been introduced
Blizzard also went on record to clarify how the changes to Artifact Power (and unlocking of new traits) will function once the Patch goes live:
There was also suggestions from data-mining that certain holiday items may become transmoggable, but only when the relevant holiday event is live on Servers.
