    ... Every 1 second... for 1.5 seconds.... that makes 100% no sense at all

    What's this? Blizzard changed their mind about nerfing the instance achievements? This put me in a good mood.

    Finaly they try to fix moonkin on pve. Lets see. Now next patch hope they fix pvp also :P

    Inner Rage now has a 1.5 sec cooldown.
    I think we have a error here. Maybe 1.5min ?

    I must say i'm a bit concerned with no melee buffs and slight nerfs on dps warriors... Baffling really.

    Lil' Alexstrasza. I hope she's in her human form, naked.

    hooray, Frost trap is a viable CC again, no more needing perfect timing or standing around waiting for the cooldown to wind down before triggering it.

    Dev 1: You guys, there's this one thing I wanted to talk about regarding Ice Lance...
    Dev 2: So yeah then I was like you know what'd really fit? Give melee a 5 second window to kill Druids before Thorns pops back up.
    Dev 3: mang you a fuckin genius
    Dev 1: You guys. Ice Lance? Anyone?
    Dev 2: What? For god's sake Jackson, we're developing a game here.
    Dev 3: yeah you blind or what bro
    Dev 1: It's Ice Lance. It's hitting harder than Frostbolt, I think it's really out of control.
    Dev 2: So buff Frostbolt. Jesus christ Jackson, do we have to do all the fucking work around here?

    Hmm i think blizzard might have made a tooltip error becuase it was already 2% hp every 1 seconds in past and ptr builds. It could be 2% every .5 seconds whoch would get you 3 procs like the current but that just seems alittle op 40% of your hp from 10 secs non stop draining when you have 100k+ hp *straches head* yea this is confusing.

    Does this mean Deathwing will be a world boss that goes around killing people or something? I've heard people talk about wanting him to go around killing random people, but this is the first time I've seen Blizzard say (well, imply actually) that they would do it.

    Stood in the Fire - Get killed by Deathwing.
    In Exploration category? So Deathwing will be flying around Azeroth, killing people at will? Holy s***!!!

    Edit: Damn you, Zoma

    Ok, it's obviously an error and it should be once every .5 sec for 1.5 sec, because otherwise the spell makes no sense. Far as I can tell that's a buff. You're going to complain that pvp actually got something buffed? Normally pvp gets everything nerfed to hell.
