    Why all the Northrend rep increases? I mean, it's nice and I like the precedent it's setting but every character who needs that rep also needs all the Triumph badges from 5mans to get geared so the rep would happen while you're there...

    Meh, my Death Knight will love it.

    nice mage buffs, specifically for pvp
    arcane still a little squishy, and has serious crit problems if you want any kind of haste in arenas
    just sayin'...

    Nice to see the enchants being BoA. No more grinding rep for alts. Thank you Jesus.

    This will make gearing alt even easier, I've always have my alts not very geared for this reason. I hate having to run Heroics mindlessly over and over.

    And...

    Will this decrease the amount of caster newbies that autoattack their way up to lvl 10 or even higher?. Anyways I like it; however, I see no reason to remove the water and food from new created toons, it makes no sense at all.

    Also, pleased to see the Burning Determination immunity time doubled. As it is it's a rather awful pvp talent. There has been a surprising amount of effort in making frost viable for pve and fire viable for pvp recently. I hope Blizzard keeps up the mage love.

    Re: Patch 3.3.0 PTR Notes Update - 10/16

    I really don't get it. If we are forced to do the heroic dailys, if new toons are forced to farm heroics from triumphs, there is no need to easy rep grinding.

    Re: Patch 3.3.0 PTR Notes Update - 10/16

    I'm pretty sure they said they were making it so 1-10 casters weren't going OOM after every two monsters. They've just made it necessary to have food and water at that level or for caster newbies to auto attack.

    Re: Patch 3.3.0 PTR Notes Update - 10/16

    Shadow Priests getting another 10% added to Mind Flay should prove to be a sizeable buff considering it usually makes up at least 45% of the total damage done.

    I agree. And didn't a Blue post about making some of those factions easier to grind in the expansion and some will be lost? I dunno.
