Those Enhance Shaman changes. Damn shame. No one used them, after that even more reasons not to using them. And main goal to give some AoE power back is not here. What the point of that if you will deal the same amount of AoE DMG as other after 15 - 20 secs. After 20 secs pack is dead anyway. 

Resto Druid Mastery buff is good. Other Druid spec changes are not bad question is how they will be competing with current builds.

This is a bigger problem than most people realise. It basically makes you useless for AoE on any trash, adds, whatever. You are only good if there are multiple bosses alive for a decent amount of time, or you are cleaving onto something that isn't even a priority so it doesn't die quickly, which then means you're basically padding.

Can someone help me, I'm unable to view any of this content to an extent. Like I see all the detailed and everything but when i hover my mouse over, lets say a talent, to see the actual changes. Nothing happens. It doesn't display any information at all.

Thank you for the report. We are working to resolve this issue. Apologies for any inconvenience caused. Sometimes refreshing the article works and the tooltips will load. That's only a temporary workaround.

I've been having this issue with everything on the whole site for about a month now. I've tried other browsers too.

Left a reply for you in your Site Feedback post. Any extra information on the questions there would be great!

This entire list is just confusing. The links take us to ptr.wowdb.com and evidently just give us the changed version, but I don't know of anyone who has all their talents and percentages just memorized so you can do a comparison. In other words, there is no good reference to what IS and what WILL BE, just a tooltip with the projected change? Would be SO much better if it could be showing "this is what it is" and "this is what it will be." I'm just a simple guy, and the way it's laid out means next to nothing to me because I can't compare it to the current version easily.

Thanks for the feedback! I'm sorry to hear that it wasn't up to your expectations and hopefully the next time we try this, we'll be closer to hitting the mark. I'll tag @Stan so that he can take a look at your comments and fingers crossed you'll prefer the layout next time!

      Trial of Valor Odyn fix, Guarm Mythic tuning and Helya nerfs and fixes are the headlines for this batch of hotfixes, along with the usual class and quest fixes.
      December 6
      Class
      Demon Hunter
      Fixed a bug that sometimes allowed the leech from Soul Rending to persist after Metamorphosis ended. Hunter
      Freezing Trap will no longer cause the target's next cast to fail in certain cases. Mage
      Ice Block's cooldown will correctly reset at the end of an encounter. Priest
      You can now activate and deactivate Shadowform while mounted.  
      Class Halls
      Players who were unable to submit Artifact Knowledge Work Orders should now be able to again.  
      Dungeons and Raids
      Players in a dungeon during a server shutdown should no longer receive the Deserter debuff. Throne of Tides
      Fixed a bug that was causing Mindbender Ghur’sha to be non-interactable. Trial of Valor
      The Patient Zero achievement should now be obtainable, as intended. Guarm
      Increased the radius of Guarm's Multi-Headed from 8 yards to 30 yards on Mythic difficulty. Decreased Guarm's health by 5% on Mythic difficulty. Developers’ Notes: The Mythic difficulty change to the Multi-Headed mechanic is intended to require the use of 2 tanks on the encounter. We also slightly reduced Guarm’s health alongside this change in order to minimize the effect on groups that were accustomed to only using 1 tank. This is already active in the NA/ANZ region, and will take effect in other regions with their weekly restarts.
      Helya
      The magnitude of Corrupted Axion's healing absorb now properly scales down as the size of a raid decreases from 30 players to 10 players. Resolved an issue that would cause Fetid Rot from targeting more players than intended on non-Mythic difficulties. Reduced the health of several enemies in the Helya encounter on Normal and Heroic difficulties. On non-Mythic difficulties, Adjusted Orb of Corrosion no longer targets Helya's tank targets, similar to its behavior in Mythic difficulty. Odyn
      Fixed an issue that could cause Odyn to sometimes cast a lethal Unerring Blast during the final phase of the encounter.  
      Items
      Many trinkets available from Timewalking holiday dungeons and vendors have had their effects adjusted to more closely match the power level of Legion trinkets.  
      Player versus Player
      Mass Invisibility can no longer be cast on allies holding battleground flags and orbs.  
      Quests
      Havi's message when a player completes "Now That's Just Clawful" will no longer be displayed to all players in the area. World Quest map markers for Kirin Tor World Quests should now function correctly. During “Barrels o’ Fun”, a swirling holy light now radiates from the barrel that needs to be tracked. Players no longer get roadblocked if they teleport out of Well of the Forgotten after interacting with the Bone Pile for the quest "The Rite of the Executioner". Previous Hotfixes.

      Hello,
      Im long time lurker on class guides, and Id like to suggest and ask if you could add numerical stat weights in class spec guides. Pawn addon config string would be perfect but just numerical values would be also great. What do you think about it?
      Thank you in advance

      18 micro-holidays tested over the next 3 weeks, you're sure to find a few that you'll love!
       
      The micro-holidays that are being introduced in 7.1.5 are going to be tested in the next 3 weeks and, as a lot of them won't be seen on live for months and months after the patch launches, jumping on the PTR and taking a look now is a great way to see which you should look forward to or care about! With 18 holidays available you're sure to find a few that are just right for you - personally I'm betting on Call of the Scarab for those sweet "world server down" memories of opening the AQ gates.
      Lore (source)
      Beginning tomorrow, December 6, we plan to begin testing of the new Micro-Holiday events being added in Patch 7.1.5. One event will be tested each day for the next few weeks, and we’d love to hear your feedback on them.

      Tuesday, December 06: Call of the Scarab
      Wednesday, December 07: Kirin Tor Tavern Crawl
      Thursday, December 08: Love is in the Air
      Friday, December 09: Hatching of the Hippogryphs
      Saturday, December 10: March of the Tadpoles
      Sunday, December 11: Volunteer Guard Day
      Monday, December 12: Spring Balloon Festival
      Tuesday, December 13: Glowcap Festival
      Wednesday, December 14: Un'goro Madness
      Thursday, December 15: Call of the Scarab
      Friday, December 16: Kirin Tor Tavern Crawl
      Saturday, December 17: Love is in the Air
