As testing continues for the upcoming World of Warcraft patch 4.3, Blizzard continues to update fans on recent developments. Blizzard has highlighted some of the updates to the 4.3 patch notes for October 18th. While some of the changes include aesthetic changes, others may not be so noticable, but that doesn't mean they aren't significant.
The following are some changes in the World of Warcraft 4.3 patch.
- Dragon Soul is now available for limited 10-person testing. Your participation and feedback is appreciated. For the latest testing schedule, please visit the PTR Discussion forum.
- Spells which have an effect broken by taking damage past a threshold (Entangling Roots, Fear, Frost Nova, etc.) now count damage that was prevented by damage absorbs or other damage reducing effects.
