Mists of Pandaria: Klassenänderungen auf dem PTR

Der neue PTR Build 16257 wurde aufgespielt und beinhaltet reichlich Änderungen an den Klassen. Überraschender Weise wurden viele der bisher angekündigten Klassenänderungen rückgängig gemacht wie z.B. die Änderungen am Pyroschlag.

Ursprünglich sollte dieser eine Abklingzeit von 3 Sekunden erhalten, um z.B. die Nutzung doppelter Procs zu unterbinden. Des Weiteren wurde der im PTR eingeführte Zauber “Kataklysmus” des Zerstörungs-Hexenmeisters komplett entfernt.
