Public Test Realm Patch 4.2.2 Notes

August 11th by Blizzard Entertainment

The next World of Warcraft: Cataclysm patch is in development and now available for testing on the Public Test Realms. This minor patch includes several updates that we were unable to apply via hotfixes. If you'd like to help us test out this patch and provide feedback, you can start by copying your character over to a test realm. Once you've had a chance to try things out, be sure to visit our Public Test Realm forum to discuss the patch.

Below you'll find the preliminary PTR patch notes.
