I really hope Blizzard adds something like:Warlocks* Soulstones can now properly be used on party and raid members who have already died.I find it unfair that rebirth and soulstones share the same resurrection category without soulstones currently being usable on dead targets. With Deathknights now getting the ability too, it's time the soulstone change gets fully implemented.

DKs always had Raise Ally. However, they've put a heavy nerf on an already useless ability by making it share the restrictions as the other Combat resurrections.Essentially, what was useless before is now even more useless. And don't tell me that a ghoul that dies from 4 ticks of passive AOE from bosses and deals roughly 2k DPS in its maximum duration is useful.

As has been pointed out many, many times, Raise Ally is being re-worked to being a normal combat res.

@SR"Raise Ally has been redesigned to be a battle resurrection, analogous to Rebirth. It is instant cast, but costs 50 Runic Power to use, and has a 10-minute cooldown. It shares the same global battle resurrection cap with Rebirth and Soulstone."That change is on the latest patch notes, last updated February 28, 7:30 PM PST. The classes that will be capable of providing a resurrection while in combat when 4.1 drops are Druids, Warlocks, and Deathknights. All three share the same cooldown in a fight. As it currently stands, Rebirth and Raise Ally are able to be cast on dead opponents so you never "waste" a combat resurrection. Soulstones need to be planned out ahead of time and are almost insulting in a sense."Out of all the healers in the raid, I think you'll be the one to die first."Soulstones worked fine with their current design when they were meant to be a wipe recovery tool and a somewhat "if your guess is lucky, it's just as good as a Rebirth" aspect. But now that Rebirth, Raise Ally, and Soulstones are meant to perform the same function, they should all have the same basic benefits.

This might sound stupid, but where do I find the latest patch notes for this? I did not find wow insider as having the dk battle rez noted.
