We have a new PTR build today which focuses on PvP changes, but also has class tuning for Demon Hunters, as well as Mythic+.
10.1 PTR (Source)
Hello everyone! Here are the changes in today’s PTR update:
Serrated Glaive now causes enemies hit by Throw Glaive to take 20% increased damage from Chaos Strike, in addition to its current effect.
Accelerating Blade has been renamed to Accelerated Blade.
Accelerated Blade now causes Throw Glaive to deal 60% increased damage (was 20%) and its damage is reduced by 30% for each previous enemy hit.
DUNGEONS AND RAIDS
Updates to many non-boss enemies and all 3 bosses in the Vortex Pinnacle.
Update to improve spawn consistency for the Afflicted and Incorporeal affixes.
PLAYER VERSUS PLAYER
Gladiator’s Distinction (PvP trinket 2-set bonus) now provides 300 Stamina (was 2703) and 1600 primary stat (was 300).
Developers’ note: We are adjusting the bonuses from the PvP set bonus, Gladiator’s Distinction, to be percentage based so that it properly scales with new seasons. At the same time, we’ve noticed battleground fights and arena matches in Embers of Neltharion resulting in stalemates now that critical strikes are dealing less damage. To improve the experience, we’re reducing the primary stat granted to healers from the PvP set bonus. We also are aiming to give healers more opportunities to survive when being attacked, so we’re increasing the amount of Stamina healers receive from the PvP set bonus.
Gladiator’s Distinction now increases primary stat by 25% and increases Stamina by 5% for damage dealing and tank specializations.
Gladiator’s Distinction now increases primary stat by 15% and increases Stamina by 15% for healer specializations.
Decomposing Aura (PvP Talent) can now stack up to 4 times (was 5).
Grove Protection now reduces damage taken by 50% for affected allies (was 40%).
Dire Basilisk (PvP Talent) damage increased by 100%.
Flamecannon only applies to enemy players and NPCs. Pets and summons will no longer cancel the stacking effect.
Soul Rip souls are fractured up to 20 yards (was 16 yards) and now costs 1 Soul Shard (was 2).
Call Observer (PvP Talent) demon health increased by 100%, range increased to 30 yards (was 20 yards), and cooldown decreased to 60 seconds (was 90 seconds).
Call Observer (PvP Talent) damage increased to 10% of a player’s max health (was 5%).
Rapid Contagion (PvP Talent) duration decreased to 10 seconds (was 20 seconds) and now causes damage over time effects to occur 45% more often (was 33%).
Bodyguard (PvP Talent) now has a 20 yard range requirement (was 15 yards).
