Not real happy with the disease duration nerf. Rather displeased with the Killing Machine/ Howling Blast nerf. the change to presence switching is interesting. The biggest issue I can see with losing all your runic power when switching is on those occasions as a DPS I have to quickly swap to Frost presence because the tank goes down or just gets overwhelmed. Question, perhaps better for the queue, With all the nerfs to AOE damage across the board how is a level 80 group supposed to do Heroic Halls of Reflection? Maybe Sylvannas will tie the Litch Kings shoe laces together so he can;t come after the party anymore.

Darasen,In Cataclysm you will be switching to Blood Presence to tank, as they've tied the trees and their function to the appropriate presence.As for H:HOR if I understand correctly Blizzard has no intention at this moment to balance anything around Wrath content. With the increase in health and damage output we're going to see, it's likely you'll out gear that content anyway so the nerf to AOE shouldn't effect you. If that's not the case and you still want to do it for the sake of doing it, you'll just have to out level and out gear the content.Heck, there's still some BC content that's dangerous for many classes at 80.

When H HoR was new and people didn't severely outgear it (and before it was heavily nerfed), the easiest way to actually finish the place was not to AoE everything down, but to CC and focus-fire adds down. You didn't use CC in the tunnel part, but focus-firing the caster adds down first meant many less shadow bolt volleys to heal through, and focusing down the aboms meant a whole lot less vomit on the tank. When everyone was in mostly 232 gear or lower, it made a difference.With the level of gear most have now it doesn't matter too much anymore, and in addition the place has been pretty severely nerfed.
