    Not sure on how I feel about it.
    And they say they don't like burst damage.

    and wow, they buffed shuriken toss? wth?
    they buffed its dmg output to compensate for nerfing its ability to stack combo points, rogue were abusing this and destroying primal direhorns that drop 17-21 bones in no time at all due to how fast they could stack combo points with no drawback to use deadly throw for craptons of dmg really quickly and effortlessly

    People that complain about class mechanics that they clearly don't understand are just adorable. This will not affect the Mage single target game at all, Nether Tempest will remain superior for that. Nor will it be useful in mass AoE. It may be a slight buff to our 2-4 target game at best, but that could use one, which is obviously the point.

    Nope. Should be the same damage, less burst. More DoT, less Kaboom at the end.

    Warrior pvp set first bonus , which means we go back to chain i assume!
    Maybe they'll make 10% battle stance standard?

    Or they could give us the Weapon Mastery talent from BC back which made us immune to disarm, or at least 50%.

    Hmm... I'm interested in that Pegasus mount. I hope the promotion is something kinda like the Mountain Dew/Warbot one was.

    Wait in that Xan'tish's Flute right? 60 seconds and only a 5 min CD that is so getting nerfed I mean think about you could ALMOST have fun with that item I see a nerf down to 10 seconds or 3 hour CD coming.

    when I saw the pegasus mount i thought it would wither difficult to obtain or be part of blizz store. The Hearthstone promo has given me hope to own this and play that kick ass game

    must be a fantastic game, since you spend time in a forum talking about WoW. Shouldn't you be playing GW2? people talking about how something is better than their competitors on their site always sound like they have serious inferiority complex cases. If you like GW2, go play and stay there. We don't go to your forum pulling this kind of retarded stunt, it's quite sad.

    and lol at everyone QQing about Living Bomb, anyone even read what the change is about? it's not a buff. geez.

    the Hearthstone promotion sounds really promising, I hope we get it for playing it, which I was totally going to do!

    Whoever thinks that Holy is doing more healing than Disc should get their brain checked. Disc is getting a nerf for a reason and it's because they are super powerful.

    I'd rather it was something to do with being in the beta. We never got the Mountain Dew/Warbot one in the UK xD
