Recent 9.05 changes to the World of Warcraft PTR bring several tweaks to covenants, classes, and more.

Many classes see some adjustments, either minor or slightly more significant, in this latest update to the PTR. These classes include the demon hunter, druid, monk, paladin, priest, rogue, shaman, and warlock. Some classes received some slight buffs, while other saw slight nerfs.

Covenants received a bunch of changes. The Necrolord, specifically, saw significant changes with Fleshcraft being redesigned:

  • Fleshcraft has been redesigned – Form a shield of flesh and bone over 3 seconds (was 4 seconds) that absorbs damage equal to 40% of your maximum health for 2 minutes. While channeling, your damage taken is reduced by 30%. Passive effect – Moving near an enemy’s corpse consumes their essence to reduce Fleshcraft’s cooldown by 1 second.
  • The slime creatures within the Plaguefall dungeon will now grant their buffs when their corpses are consumed by Fleshcraft’s passive effect (was when Fleshcraft was used on their corpses).

The notes also touch on dungeons, raids, items, legendary items, rewards, PvP, the Maw, Torghast, and more. You can read the full release notes here.
