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!

There is a simple way to tell what the old version is compared to the new one.

The new ability tooltip is displayed on the main part of the page.  In the upper right corner of the page there is a selection that says "live" and "ptr", if you put your mouse over the live selection it will show you the ability tooltip for what it currently is on live servers.  It actually works out really well because you can see both descriptions and compare them without clicking through multiple pages.

I seriously hope those fury nerfs arent pushed into live, we already have issues keeping up with arms if we dont have the warrior legendary ring. IF anything, nerf arms crit dmg.

I'm hoping that Nighthold gear might narrow the gap, even with the nerfs

I hope so too.

With us having to sacrifice all mastery and crit to try and hit 50% haste is ridiculous.

Also, I would be fine if they kept the Frothing Berserker, Reckless Abandon, and Wrecking Ball changes but didn't reduce the Dragon Roar damage bonus. That would close the gap a little bit more.

At least in the past, Fury did always seem to surpass Arms at higher item levels, just because of more stats to budget. A massive Haste trinket with  a big proc could seriously help out Fury.

      Redditor Vorsa believes to have found the potential location of N'Zoth's prison in Battle for Azeroth by studying the maps!
      It's kind of an open secret that there will be moderate to heavy Old God involvement in the plot of Battle for Azeroth, potentially even later being revealed as the spark for the renewed Alliance/Horde animosity. N'Zoth and the Void Lords were expected to be the next expansion after Legion for quite a while, but with BfA it seems like we're either getting a mixed bag with PvP focus and Old Gods, or, which I think is more likely, BfA will be the bridge expansion between us fighting the Legion and then full on fighting the Void Lords in the next one.
      However, redditor Vorsa has delved into some old maps and thinks he found the potential location of N'Zoth's prison/Ny'alotha on the Battle for Azeroth map. It makes perfect sense if we'll be getting to see the old god/his city in BfA, as it's positioned smack down in the middle between Zandalar and Kul Tiras:

      So, is Ny'lotha going to be BfA's Argus type final patch? Is it going to bridge over into a full-on Old God/Void Lord expansion or will be dealing with N'Zoth himself directly in BfA? Will the whole Horde/Alliance scuffle turn out to be a complete Old God manipulation?
      What do you guys think?

      In order to improve the AoE performance of Shadow Priests in short duration multitarget situations, changes are planned for the class with next week's maintenance.
      Blizzard (Source)
      With the next weekly maintenance, we'll be shifting around some of Shadow Priests' damage sources with the goal of improving their AOE damage performance in short-duration multitarget situations - namely dungeon trash packs.

      The nature and lifetime of dungeon trash packs makes it hard for Shadow Priests to ramp up to their full damage potential as part of their rotation. These changes should improve that situation, with a mostly neutral effect for overall performance in longer-duration raid fights.  Void Eruption No longer deals a separate damage event for each of your Shadow Word: Pain or Vampiric Touch on each target. Instead, deals a single damage event to all targets that have EITHER your Shadow Word: Pain or Vampiric Touch. Void Eruption damage increased by 700% Shadow Crash Cooldown reduced to 20 sec. (down from 30 sec) Insanity generation increased to 20. (up from 15) Missile speed increased by 60%. Mind Sear (Passive) Damage increased by 50%. Heart of the Void (Legendary) Increases Void Eruption’s damage by 75% (down from 300%) and heals you for 25% (down from 40%) of the damage done. Developers Note: This is compensation for the Void Eruption buff. The overall effect is mostly neutral. Shadow Word: Pain/Vampiric Touch Damage reduced by 4%. Developers Note: This is compensation for the Void Eruption buff in extended fights.

      World of Warcraft is currently on discount and redditor Gankeros pointed out an interesting fact; a level 100 boost costs just $25 and that's not the only thing!
      Level 100 Boost for $25
      Up to 8 World of Warcraft licenses can be attached to a single Battle.net account. The best thing is that the level 100 boost is account-wide, so after you activate the secondary game license, you can use the level 100 boost on your main (primary) license.
      Go to Account Management and under "Game Accounts", navigate to World of Warcraft and select the "Play for free" option to create a new World of Warcraft license. You should be then offered a WoW bundle for $25 / 25 EUR.
      Other Benefits of 2 World of Warcraft Accounts
      The standard Battle Chest comes with 30 days of game time and Black Friday is the ideal time to buy another WoW copy in case you've ever wanted to try out multiboxing. ISBoxer should be your go-to multiboxing software for World of Warcraft. They even offer a trial and it's really easy to set up. Don't forget to recruit yourself before doing any of this!
      If you don't need Legion, it's still good to least buy the Battle Chest for gold making. The first account is obviously your main and the second can be used for sniping. It gets even better if you have two monitors and you log in simultaneously on both accounts. Sniping is well worth it and the account will pay for itself in the long run. What exactly is sniping? The process of constantly checking the last page of the Auction House for cheap deals using preset filters. The main issue with a single license is that you can't be logged in on two characters at the same time. With two accounts, you can have one constantly sniping the Auction House, while you're playing your main.

      Did you miss any matches played at BlizzCon 2017? No problem! Blizzard uploaded a recap video of the WoW Arena World Championship with all important highlights.
      Congratulations to this year's world champions - team ABC! For more BlizzCon coverage check out our BlizzCon 2017 content hub.

      Miss any matches? Forget the final? Wonder who won? Look no further! We have all the action from the Arena World Championship world finals at BlizzCon 2017 right here.
      WANT THE TL;DR? WATCH THE RECAP VIDEO
      HOW CHAMPIONS ARE MADE
      In the opening week, ten teams descended on Anaheim in the run-up to the finals, with two teams eliminated on day one.
      Panda Global took down Rockets Eclipse with relative ease, to be met by defending world champions Method: Triforce. Panda Global were on fire, with the fever-pitch energy of the crowd fanning the flames. They beat the champions 3-1 in the semi-final to win their place in the final.
      EU VS NA
      Across the bracket, the top-seeded North America team—Method Synergy—faced Europe’s second seeded team, ABC. ABC’s tried and tested formula of Alec on Mage and Niksi on Rogue, seen the previous year, worked like a charm taking down NA’s #1 team 3-2.
      ABC EASY AS 123…4
      The finals in 2017 were once again NA vs EU. The comeback kids on Panda Global looked a little shaky and struggled to hold form, testing the limits of their passionate fans’ patience and creating a tense, exciting atmosphere throughout the arena. Sensing victory, ABC took full control; beating Panda Global in a nail-biting set of games 4-0—earning them their rightful place in World of Warcraft Arena history.
      CONGRATULATIONS TO ABC: WORLD CHAMPIONS!

      ABC Crowned World Champions
