    Good job Blizzard. Buff the classes that top the DPS and nerf the ones who are at the bottom.
    You honestly expected anything different?

    A little annoyed by Chain Lightning's reduced damage, and I'd really appreciate a solid reason behind this specific nerf.

    Let the nerfing of the warlock begin

    I really don't understand some the warlock nerfs. There are still mid-table dps class beside Affliction that is a tad better...and then they further nerf Demo / Destro...hum

    Does-not-make-any-sence. And Void Ray is really crap already xd

    Final build before Mists patch notes:

    Warlock: All damage and abilities reduced by 20%. Because quite frankly, we don't like you. Mages are so much prettier.

    Blizzard doesn't give a shit about your damage on live. Why should they?

    I'm already having to set my mind on not playing destro if I want to make some serious raiding... but destro is bad enough already, so any nerf instead of buff makes as much sense as GC posts. I bet they were testing some raids, the Blizz team lock out skilled GC and he sent him to serve coffees and started a set of nerfs to make sure an unskilled mage will always out dps a skilled lock.
    I'm fine with locks overburden rotation and cd's/procs controls, but keeping those and still let us under perform damage wise is just nonsense (demo and destro, since aff seems to be ok if u play flawlessly, which locks always need to do if they don't want to hug the bench).

    We just know priest mage rogue will be good.

    Oh boohoo, mages are fine. Hunters were doing redic. damage and so were locks. You deserve these nerfs and mages deserve the ice lance buff, Deal with it or go play some other game, because frankly, blizzard doesn't give a shit about you.

    My only comment would be: good news on Min Sear buff. My main is a shadow priest, and althought I'm already used to every other changes, on heroic madness for the Congealing Bloods, no time to dot and MS was so terribad! So many bloods hit Deathwing our very first time, he had 24% health...

    After 1 wipe we were able to kill him though (had the 2 mounts dropped, rolled 97 for the Life-Binder's Handmaiden, got beaten but a guildy with a 100! I was shocked!).

    Level 90 scaling not level 85 scaling. Most of the balancing is due to certain abilities scaling better than others at 90 in epic gear. Until everyone is in epic gear in pandaria they cant really fully gauge what needs buffs but they are trying there best for now.

    Looks like the "bug" with Dragon Roar's knockback being useless on Live isn't a bug.

    Also, more Ret nerfs when Holy is running around gibbing people on live in PVP. Honestly, did anyone think our AOE was overpowered in beta at all? I was just getting used to doing as much AOE DPS as, well, everyone else finally.
