The FT change is so ridiculous, I'm laughing.

Really helps Shaman/Warrior in 2v2 against druids imo, lol.

Both targets get MS like effect, so target switching is easier, and hots won't get the ignored target back to full as easily.

As a priest, I've broken down on the inside and will be even more scared of enh shamans next patch.

They could have at least made it part of stormstrike instead of giving it to all shaman.  Jesus fucking christ that's dumb.

The screenshot isn't very clear on how it works imo. Can anyone confirm if it works like MS, reducing healing effects by 50% or if it reduces healing done or +heal on your target by 50%?

aye they should have it set to a skill like stormstrike or something so not every restoshaman/elemental can run around throwing an easily [I]refreshable[/I] MS on everything..hunters/war at least have to spend talents to get it annnd hunters have to cast for 3 seconds with horrible pushback to cast it.. i rather just wingclip it on or something  :p


toughness was def. needed though imo.

They don't know how to fix the Mind Vision bug that interrupts drinking, so they take it out of arenas entirely. Fun.

WTB SHAMAN FOR MY TEAMS BTW
