    Love how they're destroying Blood as a viable FC in RBGs because gankers complained they couldn't faceroll them by standing next to the DK and feeding them death strikes.
  1. Rokin's Avatar
    Is the "limit 10" referring to how many people can be frozen in it?
    Ring of Frost Limit 10.

    I've always felt that Monks have been really weak healers compared to other healers (druids, paladins and shamans). Pretty much every healing Monk I know has been whining about buffs, especially to healing spheres... but I guess they might just be bad.
