    So what's up with the Heart Strike change? It's not like it already hits for around as much as Blood Boil on secondary target and less than a disease tick on 3rd, now it's gonna deal even less damage? I hope it's a mistake, or that they gonna change it that it deals more damage per additional target (like Ele Shaman's Lava Beam in Ascendance), otherwise I might as well remove it from the bars whatsoever...

    I've always wished Blizzard would create a standalone cross-game Battle.net Chat client. Sometimes I'd rather just chat with friends or guildmates than actually play. The Phone App is ok, but I'd like a full-fledged desktop app. This has nothing to do with anything of course, but I just felt like tossing it out there now that these browser strings have shown up.

    No, havn't logged into GW2 in weeks. I assume that's what you meant considering I was exalted with the Sunreavers weeks ago and havnt touched a daily since.

    Exactly why are you here? I mean, surely if GW2 is so amazing, surely you'd spend your time playing it instead of trolling and lurking on a WoW forum?

    Words cannot encompass how many things are wrong with your understanding of what's written, and by extension, your post. They rearranged where the damage lies on a talent no one used because it was far inferior to it's counterpart(s). A buff would be if it didn't hit like a wet noodle on explosion in addition to this change... As it stands, it's a tweak.

    Why exactly are you here trolling if all you harp on about is how good GW2 is supposed to be shouldn't you be playing it if you say it is so good?
