If we are doing prepatch balancing, surprised some stuff didnt get addressed

sub rogue dmg
spriest healing
frost dk all around being worth less than a pet

It could be lot worse. You have a shield that gives you armor, a passive that increases your total armor, Devotion Aura to reduce all dmg by 3%, and you can passively block melee and spells with Holy Shield.

A Blood DK has no more armor than its dps counterparts, has no passive damage reduction, and can’t block anything because it has no shield.

Well I do like Glacial Spike gameplay a lot, because this extra layer of gameplay was what was missing from the 3 buttons rotation in my opinion.
But I do agree it have lots of downsides too

do you have to keep nerfing disc every time you do hotfix’s >.<

Since when have they ever done pre-patch specific balancing? I’m assuming this is just tuning aimed towards SL balance.

They have done it quite a lot actually.
Happened in pre-legion especially, when they added DH and there was no power behind it without artifacts.

My Alliance level 17 Mage lost a bunch of portals today that I already had just yesterday, including Stormwind.

Now it says you need to be level 21 to learn it - where was this ever mentioned?

I paid for these portals, and now more than a few of them are just gone.
I just need confirmation please.
