Blizzard have HAM OVER EYE!

So... Yesterday I'm stewing with anger over the fact that Blizzard was making changes which made WF non competive as a raid worthy imbue. I mean for Thrall's sake Windfury is our class defining mechanic, even more so than Totems in my opinion.The thought if using dual flame tongue and a fast caster weapon really just felt wrong.

Well it looks like we have gotten at least a temporoary reprieve. People are testing out the new glyph and while it appears that the proc chance was indead reduced to 2% bonus from 5% it appears that the original 40% ap bonus from the glyph has never been removed. Wether or not this is intended is certainly up for debate. Will it be fixed? Will the tooltip get corrected? Who knows. But for now, at least, I can not worry about taking the Torch of Holy Fire from a pure caster, and can go back to hoping Calamity's Grasp finally drops.

I do wish that we could get an official Blizzard statement on this though. Ghostcrawler has been very good about updating the community with both good and bad news, but this has not always been the case. Blizzard denied for a long time that WF had a hidden cooldown. I just want to be able to make informed decisions on how to gear.

PS. If you dont understand the title just google it. Epic forum thread from the EU forums a year or so back.

The irony here is that this post is now the 2nd google hit for its title, so googling it is one hit away from becoming a circular reference. :P
