Blizzard Entertainment has released an update to the Mac version of World of Warcraft. The World of Warcraft PTR Updater provides new features and changes that are applied to the test environment (realm) in order to more effectively test new features, making their way into the official WoW game. The test realm patch notes only apply to features that exist on the public test realms.
As usual, Blizzard has posted a mile-long changelog for the update. Speaking of the General changes, the developer reveals that the construction of the Crusaders' Coliseum is complete. “New raid normal and Heroic modes for the Crusaders' Coliseum can be toggled using the Dungeon Difficulty setting,” Blizzard says. “This applies t10 and 25-player versions. 10-player (normal), 25-player (normal), 10-player (Heroic) and 25-player (Heroic) all share separate raid lockout timers,” Blizzard explains.
Also, players with the Crusader title should be glad to hear that all their new Argent Crusader daily quests and rewards have been added. “Rewards include a new Argent Crusader banner and tabard (which can port players to the tournament grounds), a mounted squire (can periodically run bank, mail or vendor errands for the player), a paladin-exclusive Argent Crusader Charger mount, and new heirloom items,” according to the release notes.
Other General changes include:
· Trial of the Champion;
· Five-player (normal and Heroic mode) dungeon;
· Daily quest added to the Heroic daily dungeon quest giver;
· Trial of the Crusader;
· 10 and 25-player (normal mode) raid dungeon;
· Trial of the Grand Crusader;
· 10 and 25-player (Heroic mode) raid dungeon;
· New Dungeon Loot Feature.
Additionally, players will now be able to trade soulbound items with other raid or group members that were eligible for the loot. According to the makers of WoW, this system will work like the Item Buy Back system and allow two hours for players to trade an item after it has been looted.
