It seems one set of class changes right before a new raid release wasn't enough and we're in for some more! A lot of the issues the community has been pointing out have been addressed, like Hunters and Enhancement Shamans getting major buffs and Shadow Priests and Demon Hunters getting nerfs. The changes will take effect after the next maintenance.

      Additionally, we’re planning to make some general changes to PvP balance, with the intent of lowering overall damage from a few overperforming specs and talents. Those exact changes have not yet been finalized, but we’ll share them as soon as we are able.

      A lot of much-needed changes. We'll see if the Hunter buffs are substantial enough; I certainly hope they are.

      Worried about those prot warrior nerfs, tons of people already saying we are dead now in 7.1.5, while I have agreed I feel like I taking way more damage then before. Now we getting a damage nerf a week later. I already doing less dps then all the other tanks. Really would love to know what blizz plans are here, right now feels like they are just trying to kill prot fully

      I feel same about enhancement shaman:/ After 7.1.5 it just is lagging behind... as i see fury of air being nerfed, the viable choise in talent... not sure how i feel about these... seems just to little atm, i hope they look this over critically.

      Don't fix Havoc's irritating resource generation or anything, Everybody loves having a rotation based on RNG.

      I mean, resource starving worked for Combat Rogues, right?

      I'm just now realising they literally buffed and then nerfed the same spells in the same week... kinda starting to look like they just don't really know what to do to Havoc. Maybe they should try listening to the community?

      Demon hunter guide for Blizzards:

      1. Create a new hero class

      "Oh no it can kill a paladin, it's op!"

      2. Nerf the shit out of it.

      3. Make it playable only when having mysterious, orange items, rare as a balanced paladin.

      4. Buff paladins.

      5. Accidentally make demon hunters playable in new patch. Oh no!

      6. Nerf his legendaries!

      7. Nerf the class again! Hurray, all the fun is gone.

      8. Buff hunters......

      The Barrage damage buff remains to be seen as to which it is, good or bad. The problem with Barrage isn't it's damage, it's the size of cone of fire, and that little issue seems lost on Blizzard. If it continues to not have the cone tightened, Barrage will remain to be a talent you should AVOID for BOTH MM and BM specs,  and using Volley or MoC instead will continue to be the right choice. IF Blizzard ever tightens that cone to a reasonable degree where it doesn't pull every add in a dungeon every time you use it, only then will Barrage become viable as the go-to talent again.

      Agreed... I don't know why they don't make it similar to the multi-shot mechanic... basically just making it an automatic multi-shot... the range on barrage is ridiculous... it doesn't have to shoot that far.

      How did you lose 100k with this patch? The general consensus I've seen is most hunters feel 7.1.5 gave them a buff and this is just gonna increase that to be off the bottom of the ladder. Hunters are just usually a lot better towards the end of the expac anyway.

      Honestly there's no reason to pick barrage now anyway, the damage is just too low for both specs. I think the whole reason it's staying the same because it forces you to have to know your class and how to position yourself not to pull additional mobs. The point of not having a narrow cone is so that you can hit mobs from far away, that's why there's a difference between barrage and volley. Making barrage a lot more situational than a go-to. 

      Personally I liked it better last expac, I haven't liked barrage since 7.0 hit and they completely changed it.

      Guys... double Demon Hunter was a thing in high rated arenas and they could kill in seconds.

      It was very clear that they were getting nerfed.

      Rogues getting nerfed again....what a suprise.

      Why the hell would they nerf agonizing poison? Makes no sense to me.

      I understand the nerf of duskwalkers but up to 65 is way to hard. 55 would be enough at first.

      I always feel like they take the stance of "overnerf and then buff" rather than having to nerf again.

      Yeah, it's nice when, after having such a bad legendary for a while, you suddenly have the most amazing thing :D Sadness to happiness faster than the speed of light!

          Following Blizzard's announcement that Destiny 2 would be exclusively available via the Blizzard app, caused prices of WoW Tokens to reach an all-time high in both regions.
          The last time we witnessed WoW Token prices spiking was when Blizzard launched the WoW Token to Battle.net Balance exchange.
          Europe
          Token prices are slowly going down, but in Europe they spiked at 251,000 Gold for a single token.

          North America
          America didn't see such a dramatic increase. Just a little above 140K Gold for one token.

          To stay up to date with latest prices, don't forget to follow WoWTokenNA for North America or WoWTokenEU for Europe.
