Didn't they nerf the Arena S3 Hunter Axe?

It was buffed.From the patch notes:"Vengeful Gladiator's Waraxe: The weapon delay has been reduced."If I'm reading that correctly... "delay" means attack speed... so it's getting faster for melee (from 3.60 to 3.00)... no biggie for hunters.However, they did reduce the damage of that axe(was 386-580 is now 321-483) , which brought the DPS down a negligible amount (from 134.2 to 134.0), even with the attack speed increase. DIDN'T MAKE THE PATCH NOTES.2.4 version:http://www.wowhead.com/?item=34014

That change is absolutely a nerf. Not one I care a ton about. If I have to use it, I want as much burst damage from it as possible. This change lowers the damage from a single hit. If I'm in range for the 3 seconds it takes to swing a second time, I'm already in trouble. I never want to take a swing more than once with this thing. This probably is a nerf to the damage from raptor strike as well (because it is based on the single hit damage of the weapon as far as I know).It is still a fantastic weapon, but I did enjoy the grief I was causing mages as soon as 2.3 came out and they poped in my face and I smashed it in with this axe. It's still great as a stat booster, and still good as a face smasher.
