    # Seal of Insight: Fills the Paladin with divine power for 30 min, giving each single-target melee attack a chance to heal the Paladin for [15% of AP + 15% of SPH] and restore 4% of the Paladin's paladin's base mana. Only one Seal can be active on the Paladin at any one time.

    My favourite change.
    Grammar...
    Paladins need most is to fix the capital letter of a tooltip text..........

    Warriors having damage nerfed: fair. Frost mges having damage buffed and having the same amount of control? not fair.

    This is horseshit.

    Wonder what this is about.
    Just a tooltip correction I think, the Roflcopter has been usable as a ground mount since 4.03 I believe.. at least I've been using it for a while!

    Basically means the mounts are usable as both ground and flying mounts.

    Not fair. Damage is fine. Burst is not.

    These look like simple tooltip fixes.

    I understand the survivability buff to Ice Barrier, but buffing Frost damage, really?
    your not getting ice lanced to death in 3 globals because ice lance doesn't hit for 40k

    These aren't new buffs, they're just putting the already announced buffs on the PTR.

    The whining about mages is getting old now. They only seem OP to low rated people, they dont do as well in high rating. That said i dont think ice lance was the right thing to buff, frostbolt buffs is the right direction
