The change to Binding Shot’s root to break from damage is intentional, and there’s some history with this ability. As many probably remember, it was briefly changed to break from damage in Shadowlands, but that change was reverted.The launch of an expansion is a good time to change things where necessary, as it’s almost a reboot for many parts of the game. Binding Shot is intended to root targets who move too far away from the center point. Root effects from players in the game such as Druid’s Entangling Roots or Mass Entanglement, or Mage’s Frost Nova, traditionally break after taking some amount of damage. Roots that don’t break from damage are inconsistent, and consistency is important for understanding rules within the game. Binding Shot was an unintended exception to this rule, the root effect not breaking from damage was never intended to be part of its identity.This does reduce the potential power of Binding Shot, yes. With the amount of change coming in Dragonflight, and options for new control abilities such as Scatter Shot or Hi-Explosive Trap being available, we feel this is an appropriate time to make this change.
