PTR Patch 3.2 - Build 10147
ANother minor build, the live release is definitely getting closer.

TCG Mounts Changes
As I posted earlier this week, it seems that the Trading Card Mounts Bind on Pickup Removal is intended, all the spells used by the server to "create" the mounts in the player inventory have been changed and now point to new items.

This is probably to end all the scams going on with these mounts. I guess you will just get one mount for each code now, and will be able to use it or sell it at the auction house if you want to.

Spell Comparison
Quote from Blizzard staff

  • Blood Strike now has its total damage icnreased by 12.5% for each of your diseases on the target. (Down from 25%)
Hunter (3.1 Skills List / 3.1 Talent + Glyph Calc.)
Paladin (3.1 Skills List / 3.1 Talent + Glyph Calc.)
  • Exorcism now deals damage to any enemy target instead of non-player enemy targets only.

PTR Raid and Dungeon Testing (July 25)
Quote from: Daelo (Source)
Here's the current schedule for Trial of the Crusader PTR testing:

On the European test realms:

Faction Champions ? Monday Night, July 25, starting at 19:00 CEST. Normal and Heroic.

Some of the tests will have multiple bosses and difficulties available for testing, as noted above.

We?re going to try and have Test Patchwerks (Tank and DPS versions) available in the Argent Coliseum for testing. Instead of the previous tank test patchwerk that increased melee damage over time, the 3.2 tank test patchwerk will just hit VERY hard (as hard as Algalon) all the time to allow for more lengthy sustained tank parses. We're always interested in seeing combat logs and parses for all raid testing on the PTR, but especially test patchwerk logs. These are extremely helpful to our class team.

This schedule could change at a moment's notice due to server, bug, or patch status. I'll try to keep everyone informed as much as possible. The Trial of the Crusader and the bosses to be tested will remain also open a variable length of time. How long they stay open depends upon a host of factors including designer availability, bug status, etc. These bosses are very much a work in progress, and this is a test server.
