Dev Tweets On 6.1
A couple of interesting things have been tweeted out in the past day!
- It’s seems class changes are coming in the next PTR build!
- The BRF raid missions will appear alongside the Highmaul ones
Class design is often 85% talking about what to do, 15% actually doing. Today was the 15%. Next PTR build should spur lots of discussion.

@Tnillz Patch 6.1 adds new Blackrock Foundry missions; they’ll appear alongside Highmaul missions and not in place of them.
