    Oh hi, you must be new around these parts. Let me fill you in. Not every tree (lol tree) is viable for every class. Resto druids are so OP, you should enjoy the fact that you have your face roll to gladiator spec. You should be happy that Balance thanks to Blizzard purposely breaking Starfall has made Boomkins viable in 3's/5's. You have a class that has what is basically 4 different roles, don't expect them all to be viable in PVP. There are many classes that have one, READ ONE usable PVP spec. I'm trying to decide if Hunters or Druids are the new "MAGE QQ".

    The new name for pyroblast is a throwback to an ancient patch where the only new thing mages got was a new icon for Arcane Intellect. Every other class got something new, but mages got a new icon, and in those days the only reason to bring a mage was, decursing and water, because mages couldn't output any kind of competetive dps.

    4. SV was quite powerful when stacking mastery rating, tree bonus made mastery stat OP
    Dunno if u played recently at least on the ptr but other classes hit harder than pet does with 2 cds. 40k easymode mindblast word of death crits sp combo(while having 1500 resil). 30k starsurge with eclipse balance druid when all the stars align but who cares right(main is balance druid). You people need 2 learn to pvp which means treat the pet as a player opposed to y he should hit for nothing I'm just gonna let him hit me instead of running or ccing him.

    Guess the easiest way to fix all the excess dmg we got in wotlk is nerf everything to the ground. Seen some of tb's vids while he plays on his mage(lvl 85)18-19k fireballs with probably mastery ratings and all isn't that much.

    New form of balance is lower damage, more time to respond. At least this is what Blizz seems to be going for.

    Maybe so, but after so many nerfs they're prolly as bad as they are on live servers. And I hope BM would be a viable raiding build again.

    Kinda funny actually. Let Kill Command scale by 63%. No wait, let it scale by 35% instead. Or not, its too low. Let's put it back to 63%. Oh no, it's doing too much damage again. Lets put it back to 35% instead!

    all i can see is massive buff to MM u nab !!!!!!!!! ;p

    lol I love these changes, add a ! at the end and that is one change to add to the list!

    I mean come on, did they seriously need to tell us they put a ! at the end of pyroblast? O_O
    It's called a joke. It's humour. You know, that stuff that makes your face use never before used muscles to pull the corners of your mouth up?

    Warrior T11 looks well. Except for those huge stitches on the breastplate. Plate armor doesn't work that way, ugh.
    And now one of my professions won't suck at least.
