Build #38247 Datamined on D3Planner(1)Category: PTR FeedbackJuly-9-2016 9:18 AM PDT (10 months ago) Go to Blizzard forum post
Check out the new build datamine. Going from current build #38066 --> build #38247

http://www.d3planner.com/diff/items/38066/38247

So... does that say RoRG's legendary power has been removed in the next upcoming patch?? That has to be a bug... but I'm pretty sure, at least based on how D3Planner lists build changes, that RoRG's power is removed.

Wth is going on?

Edit: Btw, just remember datamines don't capture certain changes or all the information. Although this RoRG thing has me like o.O

"Datamined" information is oftentimes illegible and misleading, so I don't even bother reading it for spoilers.

As these comments suggest, it's important to take datamined info with a lump of salt - especially since data strings can refer to content that isn't in the current patch, or content that's not planned for release (i.e. it's only being used as a placeholder).

For example, some people have noticed a string suggesting a Diablo pet in the most recent PTR patch. Just to make it clear, this pet won't be in Patch 2.4.2.

This is also why we always encourage players to follow our official PTR patch notes to track changes; datamined info may be enticing, but it doesn't tell the full story.

Yes, datamine is a very poor source of accurate game information. I remember a few times in the past that the "patch notes" haven't quite told the full story either.

There's room for improvement, sure. We're human and make mistakes like anyone, and we'll always strive to improve and correct inaccurate info as soon as possible.

What I was getting at in my earlier post is that while we can and do provide clarity and context in patch notes and through our forum communications (like the earlier mention about the cosmetic pet), that information is often not represented by datamined info.

Just a helpful word of warning, that's all. :)
