    Druids just lost the "The act of shapeshifting frees the caster of Polymorph and Movement Impairing effects." Live you can free yourself of a Polymorph by morphing in to Bear or Cat Form, and while you are on a Form, you are immune to Polymorph, in Cata while you are on a form you are immune to Polymorph, but you can't break Polymorph by entering a form.

    Last time I checked we had to be shapeshifted to be inmune to poly. And we can't dispel anything while in forms...

    If I understand it correctly, we are not able to break poly if we shift into any form (ie poly'ed caster form -> cat form). But we can't be polymorphed if we are already in a form.

    Am I right?

    The melee/ranged haste change is a bummer. They could at least increase the DK/Shaman personal haste to it's original amount, and leave the party version at 10%.

    As is, this is a decent nerf to Frost DKs first, and then to the raid second. One that isn't really needed.

    I really hope they change the feral back to polly immunity, otherwise it seems like blizz is just killing off each of my Fav class every expansion..

    Thank you for updating wowtal.com so quickly. There is a slight mistake in the description for ENLIGHTENED JUDGMENTS (Paladin-Holy-Tier4): the tooltip shows a range increase of 50/100 yards. According to your original post here, it should read 5/10 yards. Thanks!

    I will never use 'Word of Glory' Blizz stop trying to force that gimp heal on me. CS gets an extra 20%? wow!> lol. Art buff is nice.
  1. evonath's Avatar
    Loving the Word of Glory buff. Now when I'm ahead on threat by a good margin on single target, I can help the healers by protecting myself even further -> saving their mana. The uptime on Holy Shield just got increase, which is a huge bonus too.

    Still need to think about the balance between:
    Inquisition
    Shield of the Righteous
    Word of Glory

    If we get a boss fight where TPS is hard to manage due to random adds, we'll really be able to tell the good tanks from bad ones.

    Warrior changes are ridiculous, there's a reason why they weren't allowed to pummel in battlestance before. Absolutely brutal for every other class. Oh good lets just give warriors unhealable dps PLUS interrupts. Yup makes sense.

    Considering Mortal Strike only reduces healing by 25% now I don't think it is unreasonable for PVP. Fury Warriors and Rogues can also apply a healing debuff and have an interrupt so I'm not sure what would be wrong with the Arms warrior getting the interrupt as well.

    I dunno, those tooltips are telling me that Bear/Cat/Travel/Aquatic form still protect you from polymorph. O_O

    The nerf was very much needed (At least to the party anyways). Because haste now effects resources, it became too powerful of a buff in relation to other buffs. In turn this would require fights to be balanced against a strong buff such as this, and would require an individual in the raid who could provide the buff.

    Maybe it is because Rogues don't need anything new or tweaking to their skills.. You guys are solid.

    Still waiting for feral dps to get fixed.. Come on blizzard, make it happen!
