    a little buff for frost nice! I like the fact that frost might be actually viable for PVE. Not sure if that is enough though, but it's a step in the right direction.

    They should quit this crap. And use the setting from live.

    Unless you have extensive amounts of level 90 raid DPS logs.. please stop posting this stupid stuff. At what point do morons realize that these are not nerfs from live, these are nerfs from the last beta build... so like I said, unless you have mounds of dps logs like the devs have, you have no clue what you are talking about.

    What's the deal with the mana buff for mages? I am currently incapable of running OOM on live.

    Good job Blizzard. Buff the classes that top the DPS and nerf the ones who are at the bottom.

    DS didn't need a nerf, neither does pala mastery. I may not have the new rotation 'down' yet but my numbers are in line with what i was doing pre-patch. Unnecessary nerfs are unnecessary.
