So Blizzard has already started pushing new things to the PTR, since they apparently hate us guide writers and theorycrafters, and don’t want us to have free time. So here we go….

New Legendary

Blizzard has added another new legendary, although not much is known about it yet. All we know is that it is called The Sentinel’s Eternal Refuge and it is actually a crafted item. You can click the link for information on what its crafted from, but right now we don’t know very much. It doesn’t have any proc or bonus associated with yet, so that will likely come later.

New Mount

Blizz has rolled out new class specific mounts. Monk’s got: Ban-lu, Grandmaster’s Companion. The picture of it is the banner of this post. I personally love it and will take it everywhere with me.

New Tier

We’ve gotten our first looks at the next tier set for Monks: . I personally love the bottom 3, but I’m not a big fan of the top 3. Certainly if you’re a LSU Tigers fan (American college football), #3 is going to drive you wild.

New Artifact Traits

In addition to many, if not all of the 3 point traits going to a maximum of 5 (before relics), Blizzard has added a few new and interesting golden traits.

Split Personality: Reduces the recharge time of Storm, Earth, and Fire by 3 sec.

This is listed as having 4 levels. So that would mean that Storm, Earth, and Fire would be reduced by a maximum of 12s. If you add in Convergence of Fates, which takes around 30s off, you’re down to a 48s cooldown. Toss in Drinking Horn Cover, which increases it to a 25s, or so, buff, and you’re getting over the 50% uptime mark, which is pretty crazy. Its unclear if this trait will work with Serenity.

Master of Combinations: Triggering Mastery: Combo Strikes grants X Mastery to you and your four nearest allies.

There are some obvious questions, like if there will be a maximum range, if the buff will have a timer, whether having two WW will mean that 10 people will get the buff, whether its 4 new people each time you trigger Mastery: Combo Strikes, and more. Only time will tell what the answer to those questions will be.

Cestus of Storms: Strike of the Windlord grants you Thunderfist for each enemy struck. Thuderfists discharge upon melee strikes, dealing X Nature damage.

I had to look it up, but a “Cestus” is an ancient battle glove. From what I was initially told, it deals AOE damage within 5 yards, and is currently 110% Weapon Damage. Again, none of that may end up being true when its revealed, just what I’ve heard.

Hopefully, this answers more questions than it creates. As always you can find us on Discord to answer questions, and if you liked what you read don’t hesitate to scroll down or to the top and subscribe and support WtW.
