New Icecrown Citadel PTR Build: Bug Fixes and Adjustments

icecrown citadel ptr build

A new build of Phase 4 of Wrath of the Lich King Classic has been deployed on the PTR, bringing with it numerous bug fixes as well as a change to Glyph of Omen of Clarity that was quickly reverted.

Fixes include several bosses in the Icecrown Citadel raid as well as an issue with the quest The Purification of Quel’Delar and some errors with mounts and pets that were no doubt caused by moving them to the new Collections interface.

The patch originally included a change that would have the Glyph of Omen of Clarity reduce physical damage dealt by 5%. This change was reverted shortly after as announced in a blue post by Aggrend.

The raid testing period will end on September 29th at 5:00 PM PDT. Phase 4 is due to launch on October 10th, and Icecrown Citadel will open for raiding on October 12th. You can get caught up on what will be included in Phase 4 in What We Know So Far. In the meantime, you can take advantage of the Joyous Journeys buff to level up your characters and get ready for the new phase.
