    This. Two "charge" skills can't compensate the loss of sheep immunity against frost mages, I already feel like every melee hit I do freezes me, not to mention the manual freezes a pvp frost mage has. Other melees have more stuns, interrupts or ranged shit, but the feral? Meh.

    The fine tuning begins!

    And Pummel in Battle Stance is amazing.

    I for one, welcome our Arms overlords back to their thrones.

    Has no one else noticed;

    'Also protects the caster from Polymorph effects.'

    Really?

    Flight Form doesn't have it anymore, but I'm not too concerned about that.

    Thank god, I was really getting worried people might want a Ret over a warrior because we had a more reliable interrupt.

    I guess warriors are stealing that too. Can we please give them bubble too?

    Those big crits you've seen is not actually KC but a pet basic attack like claw etc.

    Are they seriously going back to the BC BM Hunter? Ugh... boring rotations. I don't want.

    I foresee many Paladin rerolls in the future.

    Then when all the Paladin fotm'ers have rerolled/quit, the class will get buffed back to where other classes will be.

    Thank you very much for all the work and effort you are giving to the rogue class, Blizzard, the community is very well aware of that : http://www.warcraftrealms.com/weeklyactivity.php

    No rogue changes?

    Nothing at all?

    I don't like where this is going. First GC rants a forum poster about feeling neglected about Rogues, and now there aren't any changes to begin with.

    This looks bad.

    Actually, I'd say that really good warriors are amazing to see. Yes, there's certain aspects that make so-so players more effective than they probably should be (brostorm, etc), but top players definitely stand out from the pack.

    Do you like pulling numbers out of the air?

    I just tested Survival out on my ICC25 geared (some 277, most 264) hunter on Beta (same as PTR, except I can fly)
    RAP: 6745
    Crit: 67.48%
    Mastery: 11.92 (+29%... less than your 50%)

    On a lv81 mob:
    4320 Fire damage from Explosive Shot (Critical)
    4229 Fire damage from Explosive Shot (Critical)
    4319 Fire damage from Explosive Shot (Critical)

    Level 85 premade hunter with terrible gear and no enchants:
    RAP: 4788
    Crit: 17.23%
    Mastery: 13.33

    On a level 85 mob:
    3795 Fire damage from Explosive Shot (Critical)
    2140 Fire damage from Explosive Shot
    2127 Fire damage from Explosive Shot

    So if I had 9000 RAP, 50% Mastery like you claim to have I would be probably hitting near 10k crits per tick.

    Because having low latency and copy/pasting macros from elitist jerks is skill.

    Boub, what's the go with this patch? The PTR realms came back up a few hours ago, but there was no patch. Explanation?

    Don't worry, this is a classic Blizzard bait-and-switch, whereby they introduce a change that gets everyone riled up (e.g., no feral immunity to poly), and then "give in" to what they really wanted all along. In this case, that would be leaving us immune while in forms, but if caught in caster, we can't shift out of poly. The intent is simply to deal with the problem of resto druids being able to nullify mage's cc.

    The PTR was updated, but they didn't (maybe forgot to?) release the patch yet. The realms show up as red but online, meaning there's a version conflict. I'm able to play though I get occasional crashes.
