So having read over the notes and having 2 characters I play primarily at the moment (Priest/Rogue), there are nice things and not nice things.For my rogue, where Imp Sap is not native (even though I just respecced to get it again *sigh*) and just the sheer fact that they didnt beat rogues down like usual. I do remember reading beforoe we were supposed to get new stealth animations or somethng of that sort in this patch....but no mentions of it. No more charges on poisons rock. The biggest hit that I hate is that the trinket was changed where we cannot get out of charmed now. I can now see warlocks using the succubus even more than they do now. I'll be honest though, before TBC it was always a close fight with warlocks depending on how they were geared due to dots so I could see a change maybe being needed.On the priest side, I am glad they changed the mana cost on Binding Heal. I honestly use it when I need to heal myself as well as the tank (though I tend to use renew on myself alot). I always hated it cost like 1.1k mana nearly for what was simply 2 flash heals in one, so thats awesome. Also Binding Heal works with Empowered Healing and Holy Concentration, which is great. I think they are trying to make a gimmicky heal become more of a tool that we use because most priests dont use it all that much as is (myself included). They are trying to make Circle of Healing viable, but I still dont like it. Still seems like a spell I wouldnt use just like Lightwell. Really wish they'd give us something else other than those.Its sad that instead of just buffing our actual class, they went to down on the other classes that heal (aka Paladin). I used to admire their Holy Tree and wish it was ours. The Illumination change, while not totally devestating, will hurt. Its also sad to see that, if these notes are word for word, Blizzard cannot figure out which are priests and which are paladins.
