    Does anyone else notice the MASSIVE destruction damage boost? 55% more on immolate coupled with 100% conflags + glyph and talents could put out 33k crits at 80.

    Edit: Base damage lol, oops.

    Long needed Hunter changes, the only problem left is the ridiculous amount of time the flare needs to reach its target (since volley is removed now).

    What we need are mobile phones running Android inside the game

    You really think boosting base damage is a massive dps boost? I think it goes from 480 to 744 damage (direct hit) and dot's base damage is low anyway (so no big difference there either).

    It's base damage, scaling isn't changed. Therefor it's not 50%.

    ARENA SEASON 8 ENDING!

This process should take approximately one week. It's very important for players who feel that they may be eligible for the Arena-specific titles and/or the Relentless Gladiator’s Frostwyrm to refrain from transferring their character to another realm until after Arena Season 8 ends.

    The next Arena Season will begin for level-85 players approximately one week after the official launch of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. During the break between seasons, all rated matches will be turned off and only skirmishes will be available. All Team Ratings, Personal Rating, and Arena Points will be wiped when Arena Season 9 begins, but Matchmaking Rating and Honor Points converted to the new currency system will remain.

    It's the new trend to reduce the radius of every new balance spells to very small area ? 10 > 3 yards mushrooms and now 10 > 5 yards solar beam !

    Hey look they nerfed aff again.

    EDIT: the mind spike change is likely to prevent Spriests from having a quick ramp up.

    doesn't really suck that much that they reduced the solar beam diameter cause that would only be truly plausible if a bunch of casters just stood around all clumped up and you managed to get off an overgrowth roots, just more fine-tuning i guess :X

    What was it previously? Judging by cata-videos I've seen this was how it already functioned?

    I think it is actually to prevent it to enter our main rotation since evangelism gives us that ramp up time someone mentioned before.

    am I the only one disappointed that solar beam is not "the druid gathers up energy through the leaves on his oversized shoulderpads, and unleashes a blast of solar energy upon the target, dealing x to y damage.
