Sorry I’m late on these changes, and I know a lot of you are already discussing these in the comments. I’m out in San Diego for the next six months for work and been pretty busy (the beautiful weather also makes it hard for me to want to stay indoors). As such, I’ve taken a break from raiding and am just taking the time to blog right now.
First, I’ll start with the positive:
- Worgen/Troll Flight Forms!
- Typhoon mana cost has been reduced by 50%.
And now, with the final stake in Moonkin PVP, the additional changes were announced:
- Glyph of Entangling Roots redesigned. It now reduces the cast time of Entangling Roots by 0.2 seconds, rather than making it instant cast.
- Shapeshifts: Entering or leaving a shapeshift no longer cancels root effects. It continues to cancel movement slowing effects.
I have a feeling the Glyph of Entangling Roots was nerfed due to the heroic Nefarian encounter, but this really breaks ANY kitability that Moonkin have, and again, the Shapeshift nerf I think is aimed at ferals (who are completely overpowered), but totally breaks any survivability Moonkin have. I really think they need to find ways to nerf resto and feral without breaking the basic tenants of being a druid (polymorph immunity, root snaring immunity, etc). Those were the ONLY things that balance druids had to rely on.
Sound off here!
