General Bug Fixes
Honestly, as a fire mage, I personally love the fire mage buffs. BUT! i would of much rather of had a more sustantial PvP buff to it instead of the general Damage Increase. Maybe something to living bomb thats similar to unstable affliction or vampiric touch in the way that when dispelled a debuff occurs. whether it be a silence or a fear or a disorient. Currently in fire pvp in arena or bg its simply a healer dispel fest and the /laugh at the mage. Even if you put pressure on the healer and the dps in 2s nonstop. a rest sham can simply spam dispel and heal all the way through it. But thats jsut my opinion.
EELIDAN!WHAT IS IN DAT VIAL!NO EEEEEELIDAN!
Guys dont you think that blizz should add an "Off specc button" in dungs and so ? =)I think would be awesome for a patch or in MoP =)Have fun Wowhead'ers =D

.....no DK Frost changes....meh death strike improvement is nice
FINALLY! fire mages get some boost ive been waiting for that for a long time! there dps have been really unstable but cant wait to see how there dps is gonna be now! :D
plz change Killing Streak blizz, it sucks to only have a 2-3 second window to use it.
i don't get it......why do paladins get 25% damage bonus from 2-handed weapon specialization while warriors get only 12% damage bonus from 2-handed weapon specialization?Aren't warriors supposed to be the masters of melee combat?
...So when can resto Druids have tree form back?
awesome so all classes are getting buffed except paladins which are getting nerfed. way to go blizzard
MrRemus - dont moan about the state of druids. Druids have viable dps (i.e. the potential to top dps charts). Very solid tanking. And not least the best damn healing spec in the game.Take a look at the worldoflogs rankings. Its basically just full of druids with the occasional pala. I'm not going to say any class is "OP" but resto druids are very close to it at the moment.
Why aint i'm seeing any cool Resto shaman buffs? like you could atleast give them more than 1 buff :L its a nice buff YES but still its somthing missing like water shield effect should never go away? reduce the mana cost of their greater healing wave? or reduce the cast time of it? Blizzard said that resto shamans were the weakest healers in raids. So why dont do somthing more about it? all I have to say. its my thoughts tho
Have they mentioned exactly why they're nerfing ret paladin burst? I would rather see a 50% nerf; something like 10/20/30% down from 20/40/60%. This is a 90% nerf. The 5% bonus to our Two-Hander damage doesn't nearly make up for this nerf. To me a 90% nerf seems a bit much.I do like the buffs to Fire Mage's spells. I felt that damage wasn't enough to compete with Arcane spec in a lot of cases.Holy Paladin's will have more gain from Spirit, won't have to judge every 8 seconds, and have more targettable AOE. Awesome.Feral Cats can increase Rip duration from both Mangle and Shred, very nice. Swipe (Cat) dmg was a bit overpowered, especially when TF is off cd.
Should add a "transmorg" button in dungeon/raids ^^ higher than greed, lower than need, but removes all stats on the item. Would be awesome.
Sanctified Retribution now increases the critical hit chance of Hammer of Wrath by 2/4/6%, down from 20/40/60%.Blizzard, all I got to say is /Facepalm
