Dragonflight Patch 10.2 Development Notes from October 20th

The Guardians of the Dream PTR has been updated with the following:
  • Arathi Basin / Deepwind Gorge resource acquisition increased to 7/10/15/50/65 for bases held (was 7/10/13/20/80).
  • Eye of the Storm resource acquisition increased to 7/15 for bases held (was 5/12).
  • Into the Shadows movement Speed increased to 100% (was 50%).
  • Developers’ note: In addition to the below changes, there will be additional tuning changes planned that will be applied to the PTR over the course of this week.
    • Immolation Aura damage reduced by 8%.
    • Sigil of Flame duration increased by 2 seconds.
    • Havoc
      • Demon Hide magic damage bonus reduced to 4% (was 5%).
    • Discipline
      • Developers’ note: We’re happy with Discipline Priest’s healing throughput in Guardians of the Dream, but their damage contribution particularly in raid encounters is higher than we’d like. As a result, we’re lowering their overall damage and increasing Atonement to compensate. In addition, we are slightly increasing the damage of Shadow Word: Pain and Purge the Wicked to ensure they continue to be used in single target situations.
      • All damage done reduced by 9%.
      • Atonement healing increased by 9%.
      • Purge the Wicked damage increased by 5%.
      • Shadow Word: Pain damage increased by 10%.
    • Outlaw
      • All ability damage reduced by 6%.
    • Arms
      • Mortal Strike damage increased by 10%.
      • Overpower damage increased by 10%.
  • Bloodlust, Heroism, Time Warp, Primal Rage, and Fury of the Aspects can now be used in Rated Battlegrounds.
