just wondering but...Does the facing requirement for howling blast mean the AoE only hits people facing you as well? Sort of like a cone attack

The AoE portion of HB is centered on your target, not your field of view. The facing portion aonly applies to the target you're casting it on.For example, if you have 15 mobs all around you (including behind), casting HB on the one directly in front of you will still do AoE damage to the ones behind you.

No. It doesn't mean that. It functions the same as the rest of your melée attacks but it has a longer range. Previously you could be running and someone could come up behind you and you could target them and damage them with howling blast. Now you would have to turn around to damage them. Bosses won't be facing you. And you will be able to attack them. In fact I can't think of any damage abilities which would require the victim to be facing you.
