Patch 7.1.5 to Include Class Updates, Stat Tuning, Class Utility Returns

by - 1 year ago

In addition to many other changes, 7.1.5 will be Blizzard’s first “class update” patch for the expansion.

While previous hotfixes and patch releases for 7.0 have included tuning and tweaks, 7.1.5 will focus on:

  • Improving talent choice diversity
    • Talents that all players use may be turned into baseline abilities and replaced
    • Talents which are hardly chosen will be tuned, updated, or replaced
  • Improving “the feel” of class rotations
  • Secondary stats–will adjust the balance between competing ilevel with the overvalued secondary stats so new gear feels like more of an improvement and reward
  • Returning utility to some classes and specs
    • Now that the major pruning of the expansion is over, the team can look back and spot what could be re-implemented, as well as completely new utility abilities
    • Traps will return to all Hunter specs, although Beast Mastery will remain the king of traps
    • Shroud of Concealment added value to Rogues and will return for the class in 7.1.5
    • Other abilities are on the radar but not yet discussed
