    Furthermore, season 2 is introducing a Mythic zero only megadungeon. It's within reason that they'd potentially want to include it in the valor system!

    They're still buffed from where they are on live my dude. Blizzard is doing this thing called "balancing."

    Also, why the fuck are you playing BM anyway?

    Iunno, a part of me is glad Blizzard finally made the spec whose rotation isn't equal in complexity to a Fisher Price Puzzle Book meta again. I guess some people find BM's brain activity agnostic rotation "fun," but I only ever played it out of necessity, not because I actually enjoyed a spec that is intentionally hindered by Blizzard's dogshit pet AI.

    Not questioning its performance and fully know it's a simple and mobile spec to play, some people just prefer the concept of a pet-based style. People play BM hunter, survival hunter, demo locks, 2h frost, etc. they do so knowing it's a mathematical gimp compared to fotm specs for a simple reason: fun.

    If you're playing a spec for "fun" then you probably wouldn't care too much about how Blizzard balances its Legendaries. Unlike the guy I originally quoted who seemed upset that BM Hunter isn't a Fire Mage.

    There's thing, some people do care.

    I play BM for fun and min/max outside of Raid/PvP for fun. I love to push my favorite spec as much as I could with what available to me with limited play.

    What they're doing to BM is overall very upsetting for me. I really HATE to have to respec just because Blizzard would rather you play their favorite spec of the month. I hated MM playstyle and SV is melee when I just want to be ranged hunter.

    I don't mind being behind a little, but this is too much, BM are literally at bottom of the barrel. It's heartbreaking to keep playing with it when the gap is very obvious.

    12 levels of upgrade? How much is each upgrade? And at what cost? And how much Valor do you earn for the upgrades?

    Cat-Eye Curio Name changed from "Cat-eye Curio" to "Cat-Eye Curio". Clearcast abilities generate 35% 30% of their Energy cost, and your maximum energy is increased by 60.
    Typical Blizzard.... Upgrading an "e" to "E" calls for a for a nerf..

    This is proof that Blizzard use every chance they get to nerf Druids.

    How can they nerf something which was never in the game. It's not a nerf. It's a reduction to the buff they are going to give. But it's still a buff. You guys seriously need to calm down.
