    Prayer of Mending: Places a spell on the target that heals them the next time they take damage. When the heal occurs, Prayer of Mending jumps to a party or raid member within 20 yards. Jumps up to $n1 times and lasts $d1 30 sec after each jump. This spell can only be placed on one target at a time.

    What is $d1?

    That Subdued Seahorse better not be a mount that drops from Poseidus. I happened upon that rare spawn by chance one day and would hate to think I missed out on a mount just because it didn't happen later.

    i know nothing of tricking clueless barbers into believing they have accidently cut of someones ear and then have them handing me a sack of money to pay to the "customer"

    In regards to the Aspect of the Fox change, wouldnt "them" be a more suitable change?

    Hand of Gul'dan: Summons a falling meteor down upon the enemy target, dealing 1405 to 1660 Shadowflame Shadow damage and erupts an aura of magic within 4 yards, causing all targets within it to have a 10% increased chance to be critically hit by any Warlock demons. The aura lasts for 15 sec.

    I cant believe it , devs actually listened to my request on official warlock forums o.O

    Moar Frost Mage damage! Because being Ice lanced to death in 3 globals was just too slow.

    I understand the survivability buff to Ice Barrier, but buffing Frost damage, really?

    obliterate nerf. sigh.

    More Mage buffs, what is this? World of Bastard Mage-Craft?! Wasn't there a blue post about Blizzard getting rid of Mages control? Surely more damage to Frost Bolt and Ice Lance, then even a buff to Ice Barrier is just going to make them even more controlling?

    Rolfcopter & winged lion mount : This mount changes depending on your location.

    Wonder what this is about.

    Actually, it is in game. You have to be a gnomish engineer and talk to the gnomish engineer trainer.

    Glad it's finally fixed.

    Blizzard wants frost mages to be the best spec ever obviously. Thats why they nerf the classes that arent very good and buff mages more, its to make sure that other classes can never kill a frost mage under any circumstance.

    Considering the fact that it says PTR Patch 4.1... that should be obvious.

    I play arms as a secondary spec and now I am sad I hope the changes don't impact the output too badly, but I'll adapt like always I guess.
