List any items that have been changed on the Test Realms... I'm personally most interested in the 'overpowered blues' (such as Timewardens below). Overall, the tier 4 and 5 items have only recieved minor polishes upwards. These are the items I can list so far:
+57 Stamina (-12)
3 sockets (unchanged)
Equip: Increases defense rating by 18 (-8)
Equip: Increases your dodge rating by 11 (-8)
Breastplate of the Lightbinder
22 Stamina (+1)
36 Intellect (+2)
79 +Healing (+6)
11 Mana/5 Seconds
Breastplate of Many Graces
40 Stamina (+16)
28 Intellect (-5)
62 +Healing (-13)
11 Mana/5 Seconds (+1)
I was very disappointed to see neither the blue plate legs from the Dimensius quest or the epic legs from chess event changed considering the blue legs are still on par or better depending on what stats you prefer.
The famed Junior Technician 3rd Grade bracers got nerfed, they are now:
+24 Stamina (-18)
Equip: Increases defense rating by +11
Equip: Improves hit rating by 11.
Bracers of the Green Fortress got mildly tweaked. They are now:
Equip: Increases defense rating by +17
Equip: Increases dodge rating by +10 (new)
(+10 Strength removed)
Bulwark of Kings was slightly buffed. It is now:
+51 Stamina (+3)
Socket Bonus: +4 Critical Strike Rating
Equip: Improves hit rating by 20. (+2)
Equip: Improves critical strike rating by 34. (+2)
Use: Temporarily Increases Health by 1500 and Strength by 150 for 15 sec.
Those buffs seem rather decent. The JR tech greens are/were amazingly good, I sorta expected a change there. I really wonder why they keep juggling around the stats on endgame crafted gear like those tank bracers though.
Speaking of which, did anyone actually file a GM ticket for a mats refund after the first itemization change a couple of weeks ago?
Here's hoping for a BGoTD proc on hunter T4 gloves!
Warrior T4 Legs/Gloves not having sockets is a joke. You can't get 4pc bonus without doing a downgrade. It also means by wearing them, you pretty much have to break socket bonuses on every other item you wear just to get the 5 blue gem requirements for the +18 sta meta gem.
