    Must hunters really suffer more ion?

    I guess Hunters were useful in M+, and that isn't allowed.

    Wait... i am confused. Binding arrow is a stun, not a root.
    So, am i getting this right that it will now be a root AND will break with damage?!
    Holy moley... they took it to the back and vandalized it with the nerf hammer.

    This cannot be. It has to be a PvP thing.

    If I look at the m+ statistics, Frost Mage really needs a buff, not

    Good to know that Feral Druid still doesn't get any love.

    The fact that hunters could capture flags while Feigned Death is hilarious. Don't mind this corpse over here close to the flag.

    They seriously do not care - it has to be entirely intentional at this point that they don't do anything for it.

    Warrior
    Fury
    Auto attack damage has been increased by 43%
    Pretty big auto attack buff hurr.

    It is pretty evident, they have no clue what they are doing anymore. Really, buff frost mages?????? Are you looking at the Mythic logs at all?

    Well, are you? Frost mages are at the very bottom of the dps chart. They are probably the best ranged dps for M+, but their single target damage is pretty bad and they have been bottom tier for the whole raid.

    Some of these changes... I just don't understand. Melee already rules M+ in AoE settings, even before this. Now it's going to be out of control. No ranged class will be able to keep up unless they get some love too. Poor warlocks are going to go from, yeah alright you can come, too... absolutely not. Hope you gents have friends.

    they do because 99% of groups dont know how to pulls mobs to utilize frost mages dmg.

    most people/groups would still benefit much more from playing arcane/fire
