    Mistweavers were not nerfed.

    Renewing Mists jumps one less time, yes, but it tics 50% faster.

    The haste bonus on Stance of the Wise Serpent does not exist on live. Chances are 150% was a typo from a previous beta build. That's still a buff, either way. It doesn't exist on live, so when it hits live, MWs get 50% more haste from their gear.

    Their mana costs were bumped up a bit, but not enough to matter.

    And Healing Spheres... no one used them anyway.

    They realized balancing PvE around PvP is a stupid idea. While pvp is a legitimate play style, it is by no means prevalent.

    Yes!!! They listened to us and added the Wakener title

    These seem to be Valentines Day event items so expect 5.1 early next year?
    They often add tweaked things for later world events in random patches much before they come out.

    Blizz has put a huge emphasis on putting out content faster, and 5.1 contains zero raid content so theres no reason to stagger its release to preserve the current tier of content. I'd expect 5.1 to be out in a matter of weeks (3-4) not 3 months lol

    Basically, what this does is spit in the faces of any rogue every played... I can't believe the pyroblast cd was removed... but when a rogue gets a 45 sec cd on his sprint, OH GOD NO WE CAN'T HAVE THAT, increasing it back to 1 min.... (like sprint really does that much...) and the same with blind..... ugh god, sometimes I wish I could punch blizz in the face (yeh you heard me, I want to punch blizz in the face if a company has a face)

    With the nerf to both Chi Wave and PvP power no longer increasing healing done for hybrids, I doubt we will see any serious WW in arena after this update.

    What the fuck on these MW nerfs. How about buffing up other healers to MW level, you know, the only class that can keep up with the retarded damage being thrown out by heroic fights right now?

    Meanwhile, no nerfs to blood DKs. Seriously.

    Increased range on atonement! I won't have to ask ranged classes to step closer in 5 mans anymore. Yes I am that lazy.

    Arent MW monk like weak in healing right now? is this nerf justified ?
  1. donal's Avatar
    I just arrived home and i don't see any rogue changes. Maybe the next step from Ghostcrawler is to delete the class.

    They are fairly strong in AOE healing but extremely weak on single target. They also have massive mana issues. These nerfs basically hit them where they are weak, which means that pretty much every MW is going to be forced to spam SCK for Chi just to pop Mana Tea enough to heal anything.

    How about you learn to interpret why some words are in green color and other words are in red color?
