    No Mistweaver changes... Clearly Blizz hates Mistweavers, refreshing mists, and weaving mittens.

    hmm quite unsure if this is actually a nerf or buff for brewmasters. atleast they scale less with vengeance whats a good thing

    I'm assuming that the red is the old spell and the green is the new? If so - my monk says awesome.

    And still nothing for Fury.

    The prophecy is coming true. Soon they will remove all hunter abilities except for arcane shot which will be buffed to deal 400% damage.

    yay rogues with nothing. no wonder its the lowest played class now. boring boring boring. same ol for 9 years

    Ehh the 30 focus cost of arcane shot is still going to suck for the damage it deals I think. MM buffs are always welcome though of course, I wish they would put the buff into something other than aimed shot though.

    Still waiting on those fury buffs you mentioned, GC.

    Hunter buffs are welcome, and it's about damn time Lynx Rush gets buffed... I remember the days it was the go-to talent in early pre-expac release

    edit:

    it's like the last builds' rogue buffs were completely dismissed. Also assassination is probably the best melee spec since 5.2

    You do realize that they just reverted a buff because it made Assassin just ridiculous, right?

    BOK change is only for Brewmaster if you read the tooltips!!

    Old: 256% MH DPS + 128% OH DPS + 64% AP
    New: 640% MH DPS + 320% OH DPS + 50.9% AP

    Anyone know why it was changed? Buff or nerf with raid vengeance levels?

    Joke's on you. He lied to make you angrier.
    Being angrier leads to more rage. It makes you FURIous, thus leading to better dps.

    They need to buff Chimera Shot. Aimed shot only needs to be buffed to keep it better to hardcast(with applicable haste) than spamming arcane shot.
