... still no Lock changes or uptades
Seems like they'll be closer to releasing 6.0 maybe with little changes to patch notes?
Looks like a few things will change. In a good way though
There. There is the change that Chimera Shot needed to be viable again. Although doing frost/nature damage makes it sound more like a survival talent, I'll take it. Thanks devs :)
These patch notes are confusing and really need better redaction.Just look at the warrior changes:At one point it says:
Survivalist increases the Hunter's chance to Multistrike by 10%.Yes!
When should we expect to see the new character models in wowhead?
I Wonder, if im in combat with a single target, the "2 shots" of the Chimaera Shot will trigger and affect that single target
No changes for arcane mages ._. Regardless everything looks fine cant wait for WoD and yea i also think that with the little changes WoD is close to coming out.
I like the Survivalist buff. Since LnL is completely tied to BA Multistrikes now, this will give us that extra boost.Re: Chimaera Shot, I second Axmand's query. Will it hit twice if you only have one target, or will it function like the pre-Cata Multi-Shot?Also, I foresee this accidentally hitting CC targets.
Seriously. All classes get nerfed with the exception of mages...
Horray for fixing the mage 90 talents! My arm was so very tired from holding it up to cast Evocation over and over again until someone pulled. I think everyone is going to go for Mirror Images though. The alternatives require staying in one spot or waiting for charges, and MI has the additional benefit of dropping threat (it still does that right?). The other choices will have to be much stronger than images for me to want to take them over MI, but then I guess that becomes a balance problem. Maybe give the threat drop effect to the others?It's great that we're finally getting a unique raid cooldown. I was hoping for some kind of self-heal but oh well. I won't miss Alter Time cooldown juggling, AoE spells from other specs doing more damage than the one you specialize in, armor choices, or deep freeze/shatter in non-frost specs. I'm not sure about the bombs. I kind of got used to mutli-dotting, but agree that it did feel too similar to warlock play. The other options seem like it will actually be a tough choice.RIP PoM Portal.On a non-mage related note, if any Blizzard people are out there please reconsider the Fel Flame removal. The spell hardly did any damage as it was. My warlock friends love using it to kill critters, pelt people that are running away in PvP (and keep themselves in combat to fend off rogues), and stop flag caps. If frost mages get to keep instant Ice Lance, warlocks of at least one spec should get to keep Fel Flame.
hoped for a change in the death knight tier 17 boni for unholy...well i guess it will come
I'm not currently in the beta, what's the deal with the level cap being raised in Gilneas and Lost Isles? First time I've heard about changes in those zones in WoD.
@Shrugtal: They're referring to the Beta servers, not the in-game zones. :)Welp, confirmed by Bendak: the new Chimaera Shot does not have smart targeting and can break CC. Hopefully they iterate again on the ability as I'm not exactly cool on it; even Darkbrew comments that it still feels like a tacked-on skill that doesn't fit into MM's rotation or shot priority at all.
