RE: PoH is a great spell but nothing I would ever spam but maybe there are people out there doing just that? I'm not sure. My guess is that this new arena thing is going to have more (yawn) intense AoE damage and they want to make it more "challenging" to heal. Why so much emphasis on healers needing challenges, I'm not sure...how about making DPS do a little more than move here and there? All joking aside, I'm pretty sure those numbers won't be so extreme in the final release of 3.2.Oh but...what happened to 'no more drastic class changes'? Time to eat those words, Bliz.

How is this a drastic class change for priests?They nerf everyone in replenishment. No class change there.MP/5 will still suck. The relative value of other stats has doubled while this will get a 25% increase. Not actually helpful.Inspiration was done to everyone and is not much of a change.Penance is a 51pt talent, and not a drastic change. Annoying, yes, drastic not so much.PoH is painful, but not exactly a drastic class change. Divine Aegis + glyph of PW:S is a good change. Made sense, not drastic.The Holydin changes are drastic, as are shaman. DKs had to be refunded talent points from how bad they got hit.But priests, not really.Tweaks here, some probably a little overtuned. But drastic class changes are elsewhere.
"I'm not sure...how about making DPS do a little more than move here and there?"I say this as a dedicated DPS player: Blizzard's only real options with DPS are "nuke that," "attack the other guy now," and "don't stand there." Really, the only time that DPS is hard is if the person playing it is retarded.

"DKs had to be refunded talent points from how bad they got hit."Not saying DKs weren't changed a lot, but a a talent point refund merely means that there was a rearrangement of talents done which means that it is possible that a pre-patch talent spec could become invalid. i.e. a talent was removed, or reduced in maximum number of points, or had its prereqs changed.

Threat of Thassarian: New 3-point talent. When dual-wielding, your Death Strikes, Obliterates, Plague Strikes, Blood Strikes and Frost Strike have a 30/60/100% chance to also deal damage with your off-hand weapon. Off-hand strikes are roughly one half the effect of the original strike.http://www.wow.com/2009/06/22/lichborne-patch-3-2-death-knight-changes-in-depth/
