Week 4 Classic Season Of Mastery Beta Patch Notes

Blizzard has published new patch notes for week 4 of the Classic Wow Season of Mastery beta, which includes the start of many end-game fixes and updates.

Players have had access to the full leveling experience, and as of last week had premade characters open up for players to begin testing phase 1 raids Molten Core and Onyxia's Lair.

Raid testing will once again open on Thursday, 28th of October which will feature many new mechanics and changes previously announced by Blizzard earlier this week.

Blizzard has also made changes to prevent Rogue pickpocket farming in Blackrock Depths which has had a rampant botting issue since Classic.

Week 4 Classic Season Of Mastery Beta Patch Notes

Blizzard has also made adjustments to the PvP honor system in the Season of Mastery, which increases the rate at which players gain points and rank up.

The changes will make players gain honor 40% faster, although this does not change anything about the degenerate style gameplay the system promotes.

Players will still need to play long hours if they wish to stay in the top brackets and achieve rank 14 at a fast rate.

Many players predict it will now take 6 weeks of honor grinding reaching with a bracket 1 slot each week, instead of 12 weeks.

Many players are against the system as it means faster gear rewards, and with PvP now coming with the release of the game, means players will be in Ahn'Qiraj gear much earlier than they should, which could also see ranking become mandatory for many guilds early on.

We will need to wait and see if Blizzard thinks this is an issue, but if we can expect the Season of Mastery to release before the end of the year, there is a chance nothing will change until a future season.
