We need to file this post under pure speculation. The problem is that the spell tooltip doesn't read:"while moving the hexed target cannot attack or cast spells."It reads:"while moving, the hexed target cannot attack or cast spells."That comma creates a great deal of grammatical ambiguity. I suspect that it ought to read:"while MOBILE, the hexed target cannot attack or cast spells."...which would mean the hexed target can move but cannot cast or attack. But the poorly-worded tooltip makes it tough to really understand the spell.

This was my understanding as well. The player will retain his freedom of motion, but will not be able to attack or cast spells.

I agree with this interpretation, that definately seemed to be what they were getting at. Its just that its been poorly worded that seems to have caused this confusion.
This seems to be what I thought it was then, basically the same spell that Shadowpine Hexers put on you - you turn into a chicken and they beat on you.I am however wondering how (or if) this will be categorized in PvP diminishing returns, as this technically does not make you lose control of your character. Therefore I'd have to assume this would not be affected by Medallion of the Alliance/Horde at all. Seems like a pretty powerful spell to me.

I thought the panel at WWI actually reinforced this concept of the spell, whereas the tooltip was very ambiguous prior to that.
