Oh wow Frost mage got 19% damage nerf O_O

To expand on what others have said all specs in the game have what is called an "Aura" that effects all their spells equally. So instead of going through and buffing each spell one by one, they can turn the knob a little and change the value of every spell. From a technical standpoint it allows them to change things quickly by giving out flat buffs and nerfs.

Just think of it like they went through and buffed every spell by 3%.

I believe that most of these are already on the live servers, and that they are just getting ptr up to speed. I remember the 3% buff to frost mages from earlier patchnotes, and as far as i can tell, the moonkin empowerment buff makes it the same as it is on live.

The shadow priest and the warrior change is already on live as well. 

edit: I should probably mention that it's not because the other changes aren't on live, I just didn't bother to check.

Should probably know what you’re talking about before trying to be funny. That’s all star points. There is 1 bear ranked top ten on Taloc. No others in top ten for the rest of Uldir.

The warlock changes are already live as well (At least in regards to the base mana cost of fear to 5% mana and the demon armor pvp talent)

Yea, what do I know.

Its not like Monk isnt represented AT ALL in say... Zek'voz logs.  The top 100 of them.  Or Zul.  

Point being bears are perfectly capable tanks.  They just cant put out the damage the others can.

      Dragonriding has been extremely well received, and is probably one of the best additions to WoW since its launch, with players flying around and enjoying themselves immensely. However, with new highs must come new lows as well, and a new villain has shown their face (and it's not just the fact that dragonriding doesn't work outside the Dragon Isles). Forget elevator bosses, we have a brand new environmental hazard that's out to get us!
      That last turn to the camera is especially great.
      This seems to be a pretty wide-spread "problem", as the community is having some fun with it.

      Have you had any tree problems or have one specific tree-nemesis you keep running into?

      We're looking at how to get the Scrappy Worldsnail mount in Dragonflight.
      It will take approximately 2-4 hours to farm materials for the mount. The prerequisite is to complete one of the side-quests in the Waking Shores called "The Shadow of His Wings." Below, you will find a map with the exact coordinates for the starter quest.
      The intro quest can be found at 39.81 47.85.

      Once you complete four quests in this area, head to the Obsidian Citadel and pick between Wrathion or Sabellian, it does not matter which one you select.
      Now you must kill mobs near Obsidian Citadel and loot 30 Key Fragments along with 3 Key Framing to combine them into a Restored Obsidian Key. You must hand the first key to Wrathion, but any subsequent keys can be given to IIgys the Believer.
      Once you hand that in, you will receive a Twilight Cache. Inside the cache is Worldbreaker Membership which puts a buff on you and lasts for two days. The item does not have a guaranteed chance to drop, however. If you die, you will lose the Worldbreaker Membership debuff and must start from the beginning, so don't die!
      The debuff allows you to loot items from djardin NPCs called Magmotes; a currency used to purchase the mount. At this point, you can go to Premade Groups and search for Keys of Loyalty because there will be many people farming in the area.
      You should keep handing in keys and fragments, providing additional Magmotes. Once you have 1,000 Magmotes, head to Dealer Vexil and buy Slumbering Worldsnail Shell. The vendor is located in a cave with the entrance at 35.99 47.82 in the Waking Shores. You must first complete "The Shadow of His Wings" questline for the vendor to become Friendly.


      MrGM has uploaded a video guide for Scrappy Worldsnail that you can watch below.

      You can easily farm 2 Renown (or 5K reputation) with the Dragonscale Expedition by flying to select locations and clicking flags.
      Before clicking the flags, don't forget to pick up the +10% Darkmoon Faire buff.
      Zone maps from the Reddit post are not embedding, so we're including them below. The maps are a courtesy of Reddit user Gualtieris.
      The Waking Shores -- 5 Flags

      Ohn'ahran Plains -- 4 Flags

      Azure Span -- 6 Flags

      Thaldraszus -- 5 Flags

      A few moments ago, Doubleagent has reached Level 66 in Dragonflight.
      Four levels to go for Doubleagent, who's on the way to reach Level 70 without leaving the Wandering Isle or choosing a faction.
