With todays PTR update, the following changes have arrived for the new Augmentation specialization:

  • EVOKER
    • Emerald Blossom’s flower now grows immediately on cast and heals after 1.5 seconds (was 2 seconds).
    • Augmentation
      • Pupil of Alexstrazsa now only launches 1 additional Living Flame when Leaping Flames is active (previously, it was casting an extra Living Flame for every Leaping Flames charge).
      • New Talent: Dream of Spring – Emerald Blossom no longer has a cooldown, deals 35% increased healing, and increases the duration of your active Ebon Might effects by 1 second, but costs 3 Essence. Emerald Blossom will now benefit from and consume Essence Burst.
        • Developer’s Note: In a future PTR update, Dream of Spring will be moved to be a choice node with Prolong Life.
      • Activate Weyrnstone is now usable while moving.
      • Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible Set Bonus has been implemented:
        • 2-Set Bonus: Ebon Might increases the damage of your empower spells by 30%.
        • 4-Set Bonus: Ebon Might grants an additional 1% primary stat to each ally.
        • Developer’s Notes: Augmentation’s set bonus for Vault of the Incarnates will be added in a future PTR update.

Hello Evokers.
The following Augmentation hotfixes have been made to the Fractures in Time test server:

  • Fixed an issue where Deep Breath would not cause Eruptions to be cast, via the Overlord talent.
  • Fixed an issue where Breath of Eons’ final damage would benefit from damage taken modifiers such as Chaos Brand.
  • For Warriors, the Armored to the Teeth talent will no longer benefit from armor granted by Augmentation Evoker’s Blistering Scales spell.
    • Developer’s note: As a part of Augmentation’s utility/survivability kit, Blistering Scales is intended to be one of the main bonuses they give to tank-specialized characters. While it can be used on occasion to help save a non-tank character (especially with the talent Molten Blood), Warrior’s Armored to the Teeth too strongly incentivizes leaving Blistering Scales on DPS characters for extended periods of time.

The following changes have been made to Motes of Possibility:

  • Motes of Possibility now reduce the cooldown of Invoke Niuzao instead of Fortifying Brew for Brewmaster Monks.
  • It now also reduces the cooldown of Dancing Rune Weapon for Blood Death Knights and Pillar of Frost for Frost Deathknights, and no longer affects Empower Rune Weapon.
  • No longer reduces the cooldown of Aspect of the Wild for Hunters.
  • No longer reduces the cooldown of Survival Instincts for Druids.
  • No longer reduces the cooldown of Recklessness for Fury Warriors. This is not live yet, but it will affect Avatar for all three Warrior specializations.
