4.0.6 PTR Patch Notes Updated - New Meta Gems!

4.0.6 PTR Patch Notes Updated - New Meta Gems!: "Malgayne pointed it out earlier, but I wanted to draw more attention to the fact that, last night, Blizzard updated their Patch 4.0.6 PTR Patch Notes!

Notable changes include:
  • All guild banners now reward bonus reputation in addition to honor and experience.
  • Archaeology fragments now have a hard cap of 200 per race. Players will not be able to collect additional fragments until they complete artifacts to take them down below 200 fragments. Players with more than 200 fragments will not lose additional fragments in 4.0.6, but in a future patch we may remove any fragments above 200.
  • Meta gems with the Chaotic and Relentless prefixes now have a requirement of 3 red gems.
  • New meta gems have been added: Agile Shadowspirit Diamond (Agility/3% critical damage), Reverberating Shadowspirit Diamond (Strength/3% critical damage), and Burning Shadowspirit Diamond (Intellect/3% critical damage). These new recipes are unbound and can drop from any Cataclysm creature. The new meta gems have a requirement of 3 red gems equipped.
  • Quest turn-in NPCs have been added to Baradin Base Camp and Hellscream's Reach in Tol Barad Peninsula for the Tol Barad bonus quests. This will allow players to turn in these quests if the original quest givers in Tol Barad are not available.
  • Kill credit for the Tol Barad bonus quest bosses will now be granted to players who have helped attack them, even if they are not in the same group. These bosses include Problim, Archmage Galus, Warden Silva, and Svarnos.

We have updated our version of the Patch Notes, and you can check out the full list of additions after the break!

Blizzard Launching "War Games": PvP Practice Matches

Blizzard Launching "War Games": PvP Practice Matches: "Blizzard is implementing a War Game system—a system broadly similar to the old Arena skirmish system.

Basically, with a simple text command, you can now start a "War Game" against another group in a battleground, or another arena team, the matches don't actually count for achievements or currency rewards, and you can only initiate them against other people on your realm—but it's a great way to test out new players in PvP, or hold grudge matches against old enemies.

The new system opens up with Arena Season 9!

The full blue post is after the break, complete with a Q&A.
