Hey all,
Today’s alpha build is another smaller update, having been a mere 5 days since the last build, but still contains a few noteworthy things:

  • Class Status – We’re continuing to iterate on our class abilities and talents, based on testing and feedback. This build has many revisions scattered around the classes, but here are some highlights:
  • Guardian Druid – Swipe has replaced Lacerate, and several talents have been revised.
  • Arcane Mages – Mana costs have had a pass of tuning, to get Mana consumption rates into the right ballpark. Additionally, Arcane Explosion has been changed to add the ability for Arcane to have a ‘burn’ rotation in AoE as well.
  • Retribution Paladins – Several talents have been rearranged and revised.
  • Brewmaster Monks – Several changes have been made to Stagger, passive defenses, and Brew abilities.
  • The Arcway – A new dungeon will open soon. Give it a try, and let us know what you think!

Thanks, and we look forward to your feedback!
