    I'm surprised Unholy is getting nerfed o.O

    Icy Runes change was expected, but they didn't nerf BoS. Wow.

    These frost buffs are very near and dear to my heart. Hopefully it makes it competitive again.

    Unholy is arguably the strongest melee so a nerf wasn't particularly suprising. The hope is that this doesn't shake up our stat weights significantly!

    The usual force you to play the other spec and regear patch DKs get every expansion.

    The loss of Icy Runes glyph is ridiculous. BoS management was pretty fun to do as Blood

    I hope the increased gear levels from Hellfire Citadel raid make up for the loss of Glyph of Icy Runes for Breath of Sindragosa.

    NEED MORE MULTISTRIKE

    Unless there is no multi strike gear next tier we weren't really going to need it that much anyway to achieve good value from the talent. Having Breath at 50% uptime will be more then sufficient to have us pinned as the DPS tank.

    Good riddance to the chains of cancer playstyle.

    New sims by Skullflower based on the buffs. Said to "be taken with a grain of salt".

    oh look its the same buff frost get every patch/expansion, how about some mechanic changes instead

  17. #17
    All good changes.

    Frost buffs were incredibly overdue, and should have been hotfixed in. Very happy with the PvP special casing.

    Icy Runes glyph should have been hotfix nerfed too.

    Surprised they still aren't addressing blood's bonkers RP generation.

    Oh god of the dead, please not frost again. That..damn..spec.

    Had to put up with it for way too long before wod. It's somewhat expected, though. Unholy in its current state is a jack of all trades, guess they want to put us in a more cleavy spot with less aoe again.

    if the removal is next patch then I don't see the big deal... By then everyone should have enough multi on their gear to not need the glyph
