    Please keep in mind these are not real patch notes. Also, reductions in HoT/DoT times do not mean reductions in their tool-tip values. 100/10 = 10, but 100/5 = 20. This means that HoTs and DoTs would tick for higher values.

    I love these changes. Except for the dok stuff bro. Not cool, not cool. Rend soul only healing others? No plz.

    if u nerf AW from WE,try to put to this class weapon skill tactic like choppas or armor debuff like WL/Maras. WE/WH atm are the worst mdps in game for party (who preffers a WE in party instead choppa/slayer/mara/wl,sorc/bw?)this is not balance,this is senseless nerf to decent/no OPtard class.and m8, WE/WH’s are rogues,wont thougness buff,simply fix stealth 😀

  14. July 2, 2011 at 11:48 PM

    I prefer the white lion as a real war lion. I also don’t want to reduce any healer effectiveness. Then again, I’m a healer. It is touch and go as it is to get the heals on deep strikers like melee dps, lets not make it that much harder to do so :).

    * AddOn: Jungles of Lustria
    * New pvp realm: Lustria
    * Third faction: Lizardmen/Slaan
    * New level cap: 50.
    * Renown level cap removed, though exponential grow (so its unlikely to get beyond rr150)
    * 3 new pve dungeons (with invasion mechanic)
    * Tons of new gear

    • July 9, 2011 at 9:17 AM

      This doesn’t exactly have anything to do with class balance and is rather ambitious for a 1.5.x patch which would be around January 2012. I am highly skeptical that this is a reasonable expectation for such a short turn around time.
