8.1.5 PTR Development Notes - Feb. 5

(Kaivax) #1

This week’s update to the PTR includes some new content that we haven’t publicly tested before. Please join us in:

Warlords of Draenor Timewalking

Check out six memorable dungeons:

  • Auchindoun
  • Bloodmaul Slag Mines
  • Everbloom
  • Iron Docks
  • Shadowmoon Burial Grounds
  • Skyreach

New Micro Holiday – Vashjir Diving Day

Look out for the whale shark!

New Professions Questlines – Tools of the Trade

All 8 of the crafting secondary professions now have new questlines to acquire a tool of the trade that is unique for that profession. Note: Your test character will have to be at max level in the Kul Tiras or Zandalari segment of the profession to get started. Each questline begins at the profession’s main trainer in Boralus or Dazar’alor.

As always, thank you for your feedback. Feel free to post about bugs encountered while testing in the 8.1.5 PTR Bug Report Forum.

WoD Timewalking List

Please add Everbloom instead of Iron Docks! No WOD dungeon is more iconic than that one!


Can you earn towards What a Long, Strange Interdimensional Trip It’s Been in a Timewalking Dungeon?


yes because they’re considered “heroic variants” of the dungeon, as if they were current.

Thank you for adding Grimrail to the list.

(Kagh) #7

Or Grimrail…

But yeah, Everbloom was cool. Not sure why it’s left out.

I know it makes be a bit presumptuous of me…but when will we be getting to the class changes in this PTR cycle?




Any news on Worgen fixes yet?

So are we just giving up on classes for this patch?

What about all the dead talents across basically every single spec in the game? What about the gameplay issues with Enhance Shamans and Arms Warriors? What about more utility spell and movement gcd reversions? What about the expansive offensive cooldown changes to make those gcds feel better?

Class team has a lot of work to do. It’s not all gravy.

I’ve updated the OP! Sorry…

Yes, Everbloom is featured in WoD Timewalking. The list above is now correct.



Yay! Hopefully I’ll get to play in that one, didn’t get a chance to while I was leveling.


I don’t understand how places like Slag Mines makes it to the list, but the most iconic train dungeon isn’t…like…this is like every other timewalking the worst dungeons are picked and the ones people had least fun in.


uh, Grimrail Depot is on there.

Edit: No wait, they replaced it with Everbloom, NOOOOOO!!! Take it back!


Check again

Well lets see where to begin. Mage Tower Portals still feel like an afterthought. Ironforge is missing (Edit: also missing Blasted Lands and Stair of Destiny, Outland portals.) I checked Broken Isles Dalaran sub-portal room and all that’s there is the Wyrmrest temple one. Need to restore Caverns of Time and Karazhan portals at the very least. I can see why Shattrath isn’t needed since it is now available in Stormwind Mage Tower. But definitely restore those others in Dalaran, or add them to the Mage Tower. Whatever happened to that design philosophy two years ago about making the travel convenient? Especially since you make us wait so long for flying each expansion. I do not approve of the recent changes, which seem deliberately done in order to increase the time sink.



Grimrail. Depot. Pretty. Pretty. Please.

Gods why… Hated that place.

At least fix the skips.
