Patch 7.1.5 comes out Dec 13 (US) Dec 14 (EU)

Legion PvP season one will close on December 13 followed by Legion PvP season 2 the same day (2 hours later) at 8 a.m PST. This was announced today by Blizzard (see original post here).

If a patch is on its way, it “always” comes out the same time as a new pvp season starts. So get ready boys and girls, patch 7.1.5 will most likely come 13th Dec in US and 14th Dec in EU.

Class Updates

Class abilities talents etc.
Some examples are
* Increasing talent diversity
* Haste vs Mastery vs Crit (balance it so all are interesting)
* Adding/returning utility (For example: Hunter traps will return for all hunter specs)

"Legion featured one of our biggest class overhauls yet, and since launch we’ve been listening to feedback from the community and making balance adjustments—but we’ve been somewhat limited in terms of what we could change in our hotfixes and first patch. Most of the changes up to this point have been constrained to hotfix-based numerical tuning. Patch 7.1.5 is when we’re really trying to tackle some of the broader class issues.

We’re taking a look at are talent rows, so we can increase the diversity of talents. For example, in the Barrage row for Marksman Hunters, it feels like there is only one option in the row that you must take regardless of your play style. There’s room for fine-tuning, and we to make it so everyone feels like they can customize their character to their liking.

We’re also looking at the relative weightings of secondary stats such as Haste, Mastery, and Crit. These are often pretty disparate for different specs and this disparity can sometimes make it feel as if an item that should be an upgrade with a higher item level isn’t as desirable as we would like. We want to make sure the gaps between best and worst aren’t so large that they distort gameplay. We’re going to be making a lot of efforts toward that end in patch 7.1.5."
