Torghast Experience Buffs Present In This Week's 9.1.5 PTR Update

The weekly PTR patch notes are up for patch 9.1.5 and have brought with it some more changes, including detailed Monk class changes, Nightborne hand customization, and buffs to the leveling experience for players who chose to play through the Threads of Fate and level via Torghast.

The Legion Timewalking Mage Tower still has not been added to the PTR, which means the possibility of it waiting until launch to be played is very high.

It has been over a month since the PTR has gone live, so players could potentially be weeks out of knowing a release date for the highly anticipated release date.
