Patch 4.1 PTR - Build 13707
A new build might be deployed on test realms soon apparently, it's a fairly minor build and I had time to have fun with something else, more on that a little later ...

Strings Changes
A few interesting things again in this patch.

    Nor rogue.

    I'm most interested in this SPELL_FAILED_EXCEEDED_WEEKLY_USAGE.

    just minor balace changes then. I like the dk ones though, means howling blast should have less of a linear progression with gear than before, ie more dmg at higher gear lvls, always a good thing (except for the tank)

    That's one way to give feral some more mobility. =p

    It seems that they just want to make fury the "afk" spec while on arms you just have to spam all the time you can (refreshing rend is going to be free = more HS/SLAM)

    Maybe a special cast to start a raid encounter that can be done X amount a week. But a dreamcloth like item is also a possibility.

    Curious too

    At first glance thought the efflorescence change was a huge nerf, but it actually says 4% every second for 7 seconds instead of 10% over 7 seconds. So thats 60% swiftmend healing spread out over 6 people changed to 84% spread out over 3, maybe even more since thats rank one? It definitely looks better in most situations though.
