Don't like the dh changes. 20 fury for immo aura? What the hell is that going to do? The increase fury for demon's bite is nice, but some of those talent changes make me sad. Like they didn't even read anything in the forums and said they did. That's going to be the biggest problem with SL is that there are so many different systems around spells that it's going to be impossible to make any class changes because it'd take way too much re-calculating/fixing.

It's a baseline ability now with the talent it gives 50 or you have the option to pick an other fury generation talent.

I am a bit worrisome with Vengeance for the simple reason is I don't want another repeat of the early Raids of BFA (Uldir and BoD). Where mitigation with certain defensive cooldowns were basically nulled and you basically felt extremely squishy even though you are rotating through your skills accordingly.  Taking more than 2 stacks of a particular debuff per boss fight because your offtank forgot to taunt or missed their own cd and taking boss damage made DH tanking a bit challenging and sometimes downright difficult.  The skill changes listed in this thread seem somewhat promising but will have to try and play through once the expansion is released.

If anything I think Blizzard should take a hard look at stat priority/balancing with key skills.  And to be sure they are scaling properly when activated for self mitigation and healing once our borrowed power (Azerite Traits, Essences, and Corruption) go out the door when Shadowlands is released.  Another issue would be (not just DH Tanks but all Tanks) is fighting for aggro domination against dps classes.  Nothing is infuriating when your taunt is on cd from picking a mob that was bee lining to the healer and another 2 go to the highest dps of the party.

As for as Havoc I am not a big fan of picking traits that increase damage via by Fel Rush.  It's not my cup of tea nor part of my playstyle.  For the simple reason that I only use Fel Rush or Vengeful Retreat to avoid ground mechanics/cleave on a need to basis. And if needing to constantly use those key skills seems more problematic and a dps loss than anything else.   And since Blade Dance will no longer offer the chance to dodge damage if timed correctly character placement will be key.  I'll have to play around for pure single target damage and switch through traits to see raw numbers when simming.  Same goes for multi target trait selection.

      If you plan on buying the physical War Within Collector's Edition and live in Europe, you're going to have a bad time!
      Blizzard has ceased distributing WoW Collector's Editions through retailers with the release of Dragonflight, making the Blizzard Store the only place to buy them. However, the shipping costs could be a dealbreaker for many collectors eager to acquire the latest edition for the upcoming expansion.
      Reddit user katamai from Serbia posted a screenshot of their order, revealing that the shipping fees exceed the cost of the box itself—280 Euros for shipping compared to 200 Euros for the box, totaling 480 Euros.

      Additionally, Emi, a follower on our Facebook page, reported a shipping cost of 99 Euros to Romania, nearly ten times what it costs to ship to the UK.

      A practical workaround might be to order the Collector's Edition to a UK address and then use a shipping service to forward it to your address in Europe, potentially saving a considerable amount of money.
      How much does it cost to ship the box to your country?

      Dragonflight Season 4 is upon us and here's a handy visual gearing guide by Reddit user gandalin1306 to help you get started!
      If you're curious about the upgrade tracks for season 4 and the crests required for upgrades, look no further. Here’s a detailed visual guide created by Reddit user gandalin1306.
      Update: gandalin1306 updated the gearing guide, adding Whelpling Crest drops to Heroic dungeons. The image below has been updated.

      We've already talked about and taken a first look at the Delve-specific mount coming in the War Within, but now it's time to check out all of its customization options! 
      LeystTV has delved into the mount and shown off all the options, from the different colors to nose, wing, thruster, and top customizations, with glider, blimp, helicopter looks and more! There's even different versions of Horde and Alliance decals to choose from! 

      And these may not even be all the options present at launch, not to mention new ones Blizzard might add with later patches, making this one of the cooler mounts in the game.

      We have a Crest switch fix and weekly maximum increase, as well as a quest fix in retail, the big class tuning pass for Season of Discovery, and more in today's hotfixes.
      April 23 (Source)
      Items
      Season 3 (Dreaming) crests are now correctly removed from players' currency tabs. Players have received a small amount of gold for their unused Dreaming Crests. Players can now earn up to 120 crests of each type per week in Dragonflight Season 4 (was a maximum of 90 per week in Season 3). This will allow for up to 8 upgrades per week, per crest type (was 6 in Season 3). Developers' notes: For players who don't reach their maximum crest earnings in a given week, we've implemented the increasing-seasonal-cap system from previous seasons. Please note that this increase is likely applicable to Season 4 only. We expect the weekly maximum to return to 90 for The War Within Season One. Quests
      Resolved an issue where abandoning the quest "Something Worth Celebrating" could make it unavailable. Cataclysm Classic
      The dates for Children’s Week have been adjusted so that the holiday begins and ends three days later than previously scheduled. Season of Discovery
      Players who have completed the quest "Warranty Claim" but have misplaced their Pristine G-7 C.O.R.E. Processor before handing in the quest "Salvaging the Salvagematic" may now speak with the Lost and Found vendor Rix Xizzix in Booty Bay to recover the misplaced quest item. Fixed a Sunken Temple issue where the Atal'ai Defenders encounter would not reset properly. Druid The Natural Weapons talents now increases all damage done by druids in Season of Discovery, instead of just physical damage. The Gale Winds rune now reduces the mana cost of Hurricane by 60%. Swiftmend no longer consumes a Rejuvenation or Regrowth effect on the target when used. Developers’ notes: Please note that it does still require Rejuvenation or Regrowth to be on the target to be used. Hunter Rapid Killing now reduces the cooldown of Rapid Fire by 80% (was a reduction of 2 minutes). Chimera Shot weapon damage percent increased to 135% (was 120%). Explosive Shot base damage before attack power increased by 50%. Sniper Training has an additional new effect: while Sniper Training is at 5 stacks, Aimed Shot is instant. Serpent Spread now causes Multi-shot to apply Serpent Sting to its targets for 12 seconds (was 6 seconds). Steady Shot now deals 100% weapon damage (was 75%). Developers’ notes: There are more adjustments coming for Hunters. In general, we intend to improve the ranged playstyle and diminish the melee playstyle so that the two become more equivalent. Paladin Seal of Righteousness damage can now be critical hits. Sacred Shield’s duration is extended to 60 seconds (was 30 seconds). Crusader Strike has now gained an additional effect: Crusader strike now refreshes all judgement effects active on the target to a 30 second remaining duration. Seal of Martyrdom can now “twist” with other seals, including Seal of Command. Developers’ notes: Seal twisting was an interesting emergent effect that became popular during the original Burning Crusade, that utilized the slower server messaging system used in early versions of WoW to slightly extend the duration of the paladin’s active seal for a short time whenever a second seal was cast. This effectively allowed paladins to momentarily gain the benefit of two seals at once if they timed the application of a new seal to line up perfectly just before their weapon swing. We recreated this playstyle in Burning Crusade Classic and since then it’s been a popular request in other versions of original WoW, including Season of Discovery. As the game matures and we continue to listen to player feedback however, we recognize that for some, this is part of the charm and uniqueness of playing a paladin during those early eras of WoW’s history. We consider this change to be experimental and we will watch the performance and behavior of Retribution closely after this change. Priest Shadowform now increases all shadow damage done by 25% (was 15%). Rogue Saber Slash bleed now stacks up to 5 times. Saber Slash bleed now also increases the impact damage done by Sinister Strike and Saber Slash by 15% per stack for the rogue who applied the bleed. Saber Slash bleed now deals 3% of the rogue’s Attack Power in damage per tick (was 5%). Shaman Mental Dexterity now only triggers from dealing damage with Stormstrike and Lava Lash, and it now lasts 30 seconds (was 10 seconds). Burn now increases Flame Shock Damage by 100% and flame shock DoT duration by 6 seconds, and causes Flame Shock to strike up to 5 targets (was 3 targets). Developers’ notes: We’ve received a lot of feedback about the overall usability of mental dexterity, particularly for Elemental Shamans. This ability was not intended to be used by elemental, so the adjustments we’ve made are to help ensure its usage is a bit more enhancement-centric. To compensate, we’ve increased the output and usability of the Burn rune, with a slight quality-of-life improvement in the form of a Flame Shock duration increase which allows two Lava Burst casts to be used within a single Flame Shock duration.
