Trilynne - if this stuff wasn't evident on the PTR, then they're really wasting time and money running the server in the first place. Did anybody spend more than ten minutes playing on patch day without running across a half a dozen severely broken mechanics and numbers?People have been reporting for months that the numbers on all the spells were severely broken, but it would all be ironed out before release. Blizzard would have had to have their heads buried so deep in the sand they could see China if they weren't prepped for this possibility (maybe they were, which is why they were able to turn around phase 1 of fixes so fast, but I doubt that's the case really).Maybe they are doing the best they can, but you'd expect the leading subscription MMO in the west to be able to manage better, really - especially since half the ratings changes, the rage changes and the DK spec changes were all made with the express purpose of making them easier to balance.Again, to balance the QQ - there are plenty of patch elements which I think are quite nice, such as mob tracking, being able to see party member quest completions with the default UI, the new talent tree bonuses, will all be great once they've fixed the numbers. They just could have held the good stuff back until they were ready with the gameplay itself.
