Recent 5.3 PTR changes for DKs and Legendary reward for Blacksmiths

dk-symbolFor Death Knights the May 14 tweaks have some relevance, and the new “Reborn” style weapons can now apply the Legendary upgrade.

As I said, it was very disappointing that the Reborns were same as the LFR drops – and they still are disappointing. This brings a 30 day crafting slog up to the scale of a random LFR drop. I’m seriously contemplating dropping Blacksmithing for Enchanting or some other profession with regular solid buffs beyond Bracers and Gloves socketing.

More after the break.

Death Knight

  • Blood Plague no longer benefits from the damage increase granted by Tricks of the Trade.
  • Frost Fever no longer benefits from the damage increase granted by Tricks of the Trade.
  • Necrotic Strike’s healing absorption effect has been increased to 225% from attack power, up from 200%.

OK no worries, noted. Nothing shattering here at all.

Blacksmith “reborn” items / Legendary Quest

  • Eye of the Black Prince can now be used to apply a prismatic socket on Reborn weapons.

Now given that the Reborn items can be used by anyone (BoE after all) this tweak is to the advantage of everyone. I’m using a Reborn Bloodmoon as two handed DPS in Frost spec and will get stamping the Eye of the Black Prince on it asap. I don’t think the buff goes far enough still, but more is better.

Happy Killing, TyphoonAndrew. Murder, kill, main, and destroy.
