    Is that a buff to Healing Rain? Instant??? I also imagine the scaling and base healing is just tooltip changes? Everything looks like tooltips, except Healing Rain saying "instant" and "100 yard range." Am I missing something?

    I got excited when I saw instant and then realized it must be a mistake if it says 100 yards.....sigh

    I see the data mined waterstriders from back when Mists was first coming out are going to see some use.

    Green text = datamined stuff. Mostly Tooltip fixes / remnants of old PTR Builds.
    Wait for official statements (Blue text) for confirmation before panicking.

    Hordebreaker
    Darkspear Revolutionary

    One of these titles is better than the other, and it's nothing to do with the Darkspear.

    Tooltip fixes. There are no damage changes. But, the new 4 pc for warlocks in PvP is +10% to dot spells. So, a buff, actually.
