    Who cares about what you think? I'm comparing the staff others classes got to shamans.

    Druids:
    - Glyph to change their travel form into a stag, 2 player mount
    - several new looks for their other forms
    - probably some more..

    Mages:
    - Illusion spell, ability to turn into nearly every NPC/PC in game
    - 6 different polymorph forms
    - fun glyph to change your Portal: Dalaran to port people to Dalaran Crater
    - probably many more..

    .......
    ....
    ..

    Shamans:
    - Arctic wolf glyph, different skin, same polygon count and same animation as they were 8 years ago
    - A glyph that adds placeholders of inactive totems

    No, turning into an Ascandant(?) for 10 seconds is not a fun ability.

    Not entirely, if i charge twice withing a few seconds, im screwed for the next 20seconds THEN I get 1 charge back and have to wait another 20sec.

    In wotlk you had charge on a 20second cd, and intercept on 25seconds.

    I could charge and intercept then have both ready at nearly the same time.

    Just to clarify, the new charge works like DK runes. If you use 2 runes, they both come off CD near each other. If you use both charge charges, same thing.

    Use charge 1 at 0 sec and charge 2 at 10 sec, you'll get charge 3 at 20 sec and charge 4 at 30 sec.
    Use charge 1 at 0 and charge 2 at 3, and you'll get charge 3 at 20 and charge 4 at 23.

    No. If you charge second time after 3 sec (as example) then you get 1 charge back after 20 sec from first use, and second charge after 20 sec from second use (23 from first in this example).

    There are still going to be quite a few 'big' beta builds after this one, don't worry.

    Ghostcrawler already told priests that they're going to get a crap ton of mana cost reductions, as well as a change to Inner Focus. Hunter numbers are also going to be seeing buffs acrossed the board. Warriors/Dks/Monks haven't even gotten their sweeping damage tweaks/nerfs yet either.

    Once we see that stuff, then we will be very close to launch.

    Sorry to say but your logic is wrong. They reworked Double Time to work like Roll for monks. Each cooldown of charge is independent of each other. Example: You use one Charge, its CD begins and you use your second Charge five seconds later. By the time the first Charge's CD has finished (20 seconds after it was used) you will have five seconds until the second one is available.

    EDIT: Just tried it on the beta, seems you're correct. The second cooldown for Charge does not begin until the first one finishes. I'm hoping this is a bug, in all honesty.

    Minor class changes as reducing mana costs arent 'big' beta builds

    It may not look like much on paper, but the Priest changes are HUGE. Cannot be understated. 10% off of everything you do. Imagine if Sinister strike cost 10 less energy. Or if Heroic strike cost 10 less Rage. Its pretty big.

    it's not a bug. It's been working like that all beta. It's just like Guardian Druids savage defense and the 9sec recharge. Be happy you get it base and not like us who have to spec for our only charge over 15% movement speed to have it without charges.

    You're comparing 10% with 25% and 33% respectivly. lol.

    The point is, its a discount off something that is central to the class. The numbers are just an example.

    Hahaha, everyone knows that rogues don't get changes based on feedback! You just let the developers do what they want and play the results.

    Try playing a rogue on beta now for more than 5 minutes without wanting to die of boredom. It's the slowest and least engaging class out there.

    correct me if im wrong, but there are epic shouldre enchant listed that only for inscriptionists....

    does that mean that getting a shoulder enchant without inscription will not be possible in light of the recent changes blizzard made with head and should enchants?

    Ugh, so Arcane's conservation phase will do even lower damage and the burst phase is gutted due to the obscene mana costs and if you don't get AM procs you are SOL, neat!
