    Siege of ogrimar all over again, dragging our the PTR with class changes and no meaningful content.

    I think the intent behind the nerf is to make crit more meaningful in the long term. We're in the first tier of raiding and with BRF gear it's almost possible to hit 43% crit chance (crit depression vs bosses included, and past that would be useless or yield much less dps due to the careful aim crit bonus). Chimaera Shot got a giant buff at least.

    Why are people acting like 6.1 is the first time Blizzard has ever made a patch without raid content?

    Because it's not.

    Getting really pissed off and mad.

    It's not the first time, however when they do that they add a quest hub, more stories,... and patch 6.1 adds nothing like that.

    Some good changed here. I like it.

    So Arms doesn't get the Execute nerf if you're at 40 rage. Excellent!
  1. Alexanderjac's Avatar
    I think it's retarded how Blizzard is trying to tone down Arm's burst damage in PvP but consquentially fucks over warriors in PvE, specifically Fury. It just seems ignorant how we're not being compesated for this loss considering Fury isn't overpowered at single target.

    It's not the first time without raid content, it's the first time without content.

    Still no change to the mobility of Elemental. I'm starting to lose hope, Blizzard :/
