    Shouldn't that be venom and not poison?

    Yes. If you eat it and you die, it's poisonous. If it eats you and you die, it's venomous.

    But then, these are the team who can't draw bears or cats or horses, so I don't expect a lot.

    Long overdue, going from the most powerful to practically useless.

    A bit sad they have a tendency to take forever to realize their mistakes, could be worse though, at least they get there eventually.

    I see they changed some Conflict and Strife Essence on ptr now. All mages gets Temporal Shield instead of dmg-abilities. Not happy! For arcane that Arcane Empowerment would be handy, but now we get this instead. With Cauterizing Blink, bigger shield etc I don't really need more surviveability. More utility for doing damage please.

    Rogue poisons is ok to call it because it's not a venom. The rogue isn't biting you with his venom. He is stabbing you with weapons dipped in poison. Makes perfect sense.

    Snapdragons and their bite and calling it poisonous is incorrect tho.

    how so? a posion is something fatal if you drink
    a venom is something fatal if it goes into the blood stream

    hell you can drink snake venom. alkthoguh its not reccomended.

    but no, how is a rogue posion not a venom? its fatal when stabbed into you, the rogue is not as an attack poruing a vial of posion doen the persons throat, they are stabbing them with posion covered blades... like venom filled fangs...

    rogue posions are venoms, even though they are called posion.
    hell rogues have things called venoms, creeping venom, and passives that were called stuff like venom rush.
    they know they are venoms, but they were called posions, so they are still called poisions.
