Blizzard has released an update to their Shadowlands pre-expansion notes for World of Warcraft, with classes as the primary focus.

The patch notes (via Wowhead) heavily focus on updates for various classes. They touch on the Death Knight, Demon Hunter, Druid, Hunter, Monk, Paladin, Priest, Rogue, Shaman, Warlock, and Warrior. Priest, for example, sees several changes across Discipline, Holy, and Shadow. In Shadow, for instance, the duration of Dark Thoughts has increased to 10 seconds. Mind Flay and Mind Sear damage have both been reduced by 15%.

The notes also outline items and rewards, PvP, and the WoW Companion app. Regarding items, characters won’t hold the camera in selfie mode in an attempt to fix a few issues with the camera. In PvP, you’ll see a 25% increase to the damage required to break root and fear when you’re in combat.

The app has seen several changes specifically for Shadowlands and fixing various issues. If you missed it, be sure to check out our guide on how to speed up your leveling. Shadowlands is set to release on November 23.
