    TB nerf, sure why not. I got my achievement way back in the day, but now that they haven't offered upgraded rewards like in WG, I stopped playing. I was kind of lucky though, after the first couple of week, our faction won TB around 80% of the time and the alliance out numbered us 3:2, so we rarely missed a queue. The only times we really lost were in the dead of night and early morning where we actually were outnumbered in TB due to not having the 5 person minimum.

    Still think we have a while, after all the Darkmoon Island isn't in yet. I am expecting them to hold this off till Dec 13th to launch 1 week before Swtor comes out :P

    CL without cd, fine FTW scaling change, ouch .. okay guess that had to be done.. Destroy t12 2set .. *hoping for some dps exchange for it* Nothing.. Dont think another 4% to shamanism is enough sadshaman

    Just release the goddamn patch already, games boring as hell atm on live. People in my guild are playing the PTR more than they do live!

    The longer they hold off releasing it the more likely people will cancel subs out of boredom.

    They should really do the same Achievement nerf to Wintergrasp as with Tol Barad. Since it's annoying to do it now. Especially since your team never have the minimum amount of players (10 I think) so you can either have equal numbers on both sides, you can be outmanned or you can outman them.

    Totally agree... I got that achievement 2 months ago and it's really hard work... I feel like I wasted my time and effort on it. It's just unfair. They should at least scale it up like 50 Victories (10 points) and 100 Victories (10 points) like they use to.

    I changed servers and it reset my count on Tol Barad Veteran to 0. Which was highly annoying. Now, I'm back up to 54 wins. I guess I don't have to keep going. Nice!

    I like the changes to the healing potions, now that they don't use so many volatiles i can make a bunch for soloing stuff on my hunter ^_^

    The TB change is amazing. Now I can never set foot in that horrible zone again other than to do BH.

    Ok, if you are going to change the TolB from 100 down to 25, why not change it for WG as well?

    LoL at all the achievement whores complaining about TB veteran nerf. I can only advice them to actually do anything in WoW for fun. Not to make your e-peen bigger and bigger. It will not help you to sort out your poor real life.

    These are the type of comments that need to be kept to yourself. Constructive feedback is accepted, however - saying that a certain class or spec (especially one that has had major issues with balance due to quick-fixes from Blizzard.. ie; Tier Bonus) is not requiring buffs - is downright childish.
    Please backup your statement with evidence, rather than just ranting on about how "buffing elemental is not needed". It's people like you that contaminate the WoW forums with garbage posts.
    I for one look forward to these changes, and am interested to see how this MINOR buff will result in bringing the Elemental spec up on par with the rest of the caster specs.

    Lol shamans need defensive, mobility and utility buffs even then their dps still lacks compared to others - this isnt even a buff its just a drop worth...

    If the Change Tol Barad achievement I see no reason why wintergrasp one didn't receive as much love ^^

    So queueing every 2-2:30 hours, praying on RNG you get in and PVPing for 15-30 minutes is hard work? whut?

    OT: Elemental buff is needed but i doubt 4% will be enough, only time will tell...
