    Legendary weapons changed from "wielder" to "owner". Wonder if this change will go for the personal feats too. Already have the main hand glaive, wont be too hard to farm the off-hand too ^^ (note, I'm a druid).

    Unshackled Fury: Increases the benefit of abilities that cause or require you to be enraged by 11.2%. 44.8%. Each point of Mastery increases enrage effects by an additional 5.6%.

    I guess this makes Mastery even more useless for fury warriors.

    COLORS ARE HARD.


    red is the old text, and green denotes changes to the text.

    Fury mastery nerfed straight into the ground. Great. Another nerf because of balancing issues with PVP.
