A day before World of Warcraft’s big 7.1.5 update, Blizzard has release the full patch notes for the game.
All of the major new features were already known, which include: Mists of Panderia Timewalking, the Brawler’s Guild, and micro-holidays. These patch notes focus more specifically on the many class and profession-specific changes that have been discussed more broadly until now. The goal has been described as improving class balance and providing more viable talent choices.
There are also new Legendary items (and changes to existing ones), a way to use the quest tracker to find premade groups, and updates to Artifact Knowledge. It should be easier to level up Knowledge on your alternate characters (if you are already level 110) or on your main if you are just reaching level 110 for the first time.
One change that has already attracted a considerable amount of negative feedback involves Artifact traits. Those at or above 35 points have been enabled for use in PvP, which will provide certain players with a dramatic, potentially game-breaking advantage. This, however, remains to be seen.
Patch 7.1.5 launches tomorrow, January 10th.
