PTR Patch 3.2.2 Notes Released

The PTR patch notes for 3.2.2 have been released, and as we've mentioned, the big news is that Onyxia is being scaled for level 80 players to help celebrate the fifth anniversary of World of Warcraft.

One of the drops will be a rare 310%-speed mount modeled after Onyxia, and Boubouille of MMO-Champion already has some images of the mount, which can be viewed by clicking the picture to the right. Boubouille also has a list of some items that have dropped off Anyxia on PTRs, as well as information on other new mounts and pets coming in this anniversary patch.

You can discuss 3.2.2 in this thread started by NeithanTheWronged in our WoW general forum. You can read the full patch notes below.

  • The Brood Mother Returns

    • After years of lurking in her lair battling the many brave adventurers who travelled from afar to challenge her, Onyxia returns to commemorate World of Warcraft’s five-year anniversary.

      • Onyxia has been scaled to offer new challenges to level 80 players and is now available for testing in 10- and 25- player modes.
      • Adjustments have been made to the encounter to keep it fit for modern raiding, but the fundamental experience of fighting the Brood Mother will remain, as will the horror of the Deep Breaths!
      • Some classic items Onyxia offered level 60 players will have their stats adjusted appropriately for level 80 players.
      • Brood of Onyxia, a very rare 310%-speed mount modeled after Onyxia herself will be available for the luckiest of challengers.
  • Copied Test Realm characters will no longer be copied with their achievement history in order to better facilitate the character copy process.
