Old content doesn't need to be so punishing, so nerfs for accessibility are warranted. But is taking out instant kill mechanics needed? If you don't get the tank out of Magmaw, he digests you. The simultaneous chaining, while somewhat annoying if the timing gets off, seemed to be a key part of the fight. Actually, I guess that's the only change that really bugs me.Most of the other changes preserve the core of the fights, but just makes them a tad easier to accomplish. (If 20% can be considered "a tad".) Only the Magmaw change seemed to fundamentally change the fight, as you don't even threoretically need chainers, just a badass tank.And on mage changes: glad they took out the CD. A mana cost increase of 100% puts the price of Spellsteal at around 7k mana. That's about ~13 spellsteals before going OOM, not taking into account mana you need to protect yourself and do damage.

They kept the cooldown with frost though...look at the talent 'specializations'...more like you spec into nerfs...odd.

Read it on the official site, it's been crossed out, so the CD's no longer in effect.

Ooooh...thank you so much for alerting me...I haven't been taking the cooldown to spellsteal nerf too well...this is FAR more acceptable:)
