    Well now we know something about the pegasus/Hearthsteed. Something related to Hearthstone will happen eventually and lead to the mount.

    Yeah, I don't know how this could even be possible. Buff DW, fine, but ALSO buff its cleave, which is the only thing it already did better than most? The hell...

    Maybe it's just a tooltip fix?

    Judging by the icons, yes.

    I do wonder about the Darkspear Rebellion achievement... Seeing it's been a FoS before and now again I wonder if it is an event you can only participate in during these few patches and will be removed in the next expansion. I suppose it'd make sense to phase it out somewhat so people aren't too confused, but I am curious as to how it'll work out.

    I was hoping to see that April fools has been moved to April 9th...
    Buff Mages and Buff DK aoe...seems legit

    How have they come to the conclusion that frost needs a buff? mind boffling at times.
  1. mcbubble's Avatar
    and wow, they buffed shuriken toss? wth?
    They didn't buff Shuriken. The doubled the damage, but doubled the energy cost too...so it'll hit harder, but will be twice as slow.
    Not sure on how I feel about it.

    So first a 20% nerf to atonement, and now PW:Sheild for disc is doing less than it's Holy counterpart??? Did I miss a memo?

    hadn't notice the energy change, anyway, I think thats still kinda of a buff, as youre not supposed to be spamming it anyway

    btw, I think the changes to frost are just tooltips fix

    Doubled ST damage but also doubled the energy cost. So actually results in a nerf considering less CP and poison procs from it.

    absolutely baffling (yeah, I see they doubled the energy cost, but I'm not sure how making it less sustainable while making it more bursty addresses anyone's complaints)
