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.

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 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.

      This year's Hallow's End comes with a new toy Headless Horseman's Hearthstone that can be purchased with Tricky Treats. The Headless Horseman should drop ilvl 335 gear.
      The meta-achievement Hallowed Be Thy Name is required for What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been and the Reins of the Violet Proto-Drake mount. You can find more details about the event in our Hallow's End guide.
      Blizzard (Source)
      It’s time for Tricky Treats, costumes, and—of course—the return of the Headless Horseman during this year’s Hallow’s End!
      Hallow’s End celebrates the break of the Forsaken from the Scourge.
      Fun and mischief reign as the Innkeepers of Azeroth give treats, and tricks, to whomever asks.
      The spookiest time of year has arrived once more, and the Headless Horseman rides forth to strike terror into the hearts and minds of Azeroth’s citizens.
      When: October 18–November 1
      Where: Trick-or-Treat throughout the inns of Azeroth, Northrend, Pandaria, Outland, Draenor, and the Broken Isles (Dalaran) for tasty treats and currency to buy Hallow’s End delights.
      All together now! —the Headless Horseman is back to set fire to Razor Hill and Goldshire once more. You’ll need to lend a hand on the bucket brigade to put them out and face the infamous rider.
      Prepare yourselves, the bells have tolled! Shelter your weak, your young and your old! Each of you shall pay the final sum. Cry for mercy, the reckoning has come!
      THE HEADLESS HORSEMAN It would be a lovely time of year to take a stroll through the Scarlet Monastery’s Graveyard if the Headless Horseman hadn’t decided to make it his new lair. If you're lucky and succeed in routing this menace from within, you may ride off with his steed.
      Throughout Hallow’s End, characters level 23-120 will be able to queue up for this ghoulish encounter in the Dungeon Finder.
      This year you’ll be able to exchange your Tricky Treats for a newly added toy:
      Headless Horseman's Hearthstone Head to Val’sharah to undertake a quest that begins with the Hag of the Crooked Tree in Bradensbrook. Follow the tale through to its culmination and you’ll receive some Tricky Treats and a chance of receiving one of four utterly bewitching hats.
      Hat of the First Sister Hat of the Second Sister Hat of the Third Sister Hat of the Youngest Sister ACHIEVEMENTS
      There are a total of 21 achievements that can be earned during this event. Completing the Meta-Achievement, Hallowed Be Thy Name, rewards the title: The Hallowed. The eleven Achievements that need to be completed to earn this title include: Trick or Treat!, Out With It, Bring Me the Head of...

      There's a fair amount of changes and buffs for Marksmanship that have arrived on the PTR. The first part of the changes are to enhance Marksmanship's tools for keeping a target at range, so we're seeing Bursting Shot and Concussive Shot buffs.

      There's also a change to Rapid Fire to bring it in line with most other channeled spells in regards to line of sight, so it will now continue to do damage even after a target has broken LOS, and you can also Disengage during the channeling of it. The other big changes are to Trueshot, reducing its cooldown and making it also reduce Aimed Shot and Rapid Fire cooldowns during its duration, as well as to Careful Aim, making it more consistent by having it always trigger.
      Marksmanship (source)
      The Public Test Realms (PTR) are seeing several changes for Marksmanship Hunters. Here’s some context on those changes.
      One goal of ours for Marksmanship is proficiency in keeping targets at range in PvE and PvP situations. Marksmanship plays best when you have distance from your target, so we’re emphasizing some of the tools that help you either move a target away from you, or keep your distance.
      - Bursting Shot has had its knockback range increased, can no longer be dodged, and snares targets for 6 seconds now.

      - Steady Shot will now increase the duration of Concussive Shot on the target by 3 seconds. This will work on a Concussive Shot from any friendly Hunter, not just your own Concussive Shot.

      Rapid Fire has had some usability problems in PvP. Most other channeled spells will continue to deal damage when your target runs behind a pillar and breaks line of sight, but Rapid Fire requires constant line of sight. We’re changing that, and now it will behave like almost every other channeled spell that players cast, and will continue to damage a target, even if the target is no longer in line of sight. We also think it’s cool to be able to use Disengage while channeling Rapid Fire, so now you can.


      Aimed Shot is a driving force behind a significant amount of the damage a Marksmanship Hunter deals. There are a lot of different stacking bonuses you can get from various Talents and Azerite Armor that can swing the damage of Aimed Shot by a huge amount. Some of these bonuses are entirely uncontrolled, which made Aimed Shot an unreliable source of damage. We want Aimed Shot to feel like an impactful and more reliable source of damage, so:
      - Careful Aim is now a guaranteed bonus to Aimed Shot damage against targets above 80% health or below 20% health.
       
      Trueshot has changed a lot over the years, but it’s currently not a very exciting button, and it could feel much more impactful when you use it. We like that it makes your Aimed Shot cast time reduced, so we’re keeping that, and it now additionally causes your Rapid Fire and Aimed Shot abilities to recharge significantly faster while Trueshot is active. The new version of Trueshot is a significant pacing change for its duration, allowing you to cast multiple Aimed Shots and Rapid Fires during its duration. We’re also lowering its cooldown from 3 minutes to 2 minutes.
