Only one Battle Rez per fight?

Druid
I am sure this has already been addressed and I missed it, so I'm sorry in advance. I question this because sometimes my battle rez does not work, but the thing is, it doesn't work even if I haven't used it yet. I've had to reload my UI to get it to work, and that doesn't always do the trick. So, someone heard that we can only use one per fight. Is that true? It doesn't say on the tooltip, and also, if so... does that mean if we are battling Sindragosa and it happens to work on our first try, but we wipe anyways.. two tries later I can't use it even though its not the same "fight" but we are still on the same boss? That doesn't make sense to me. Goodness, it has a half hour cooldown. Thanks guys.
It is one battle-rez per fight so if another druid uses it thats the one, also i believe soulstone/reincarnation might be included in the 1 battle rez per fight mechanic but im not sure on that.
That would make sense.
Does anyone know where I can read on this? I read the patch notes and find nothing in there about this.

Last I heard, it's supposed to be one Brez/Soulstone per 10man encounter, 3 per 25man encounter.

Of course, this doesn't work correctly all the time. :|
I love how all the comments in that blog post are like OH NOES WAT ABOOT MAI AHNK?! when the post says specifically "rebirth and soul stone."

People seriously need to get an effing grip.
The reason shamans are concerned about Ankh is before this discussion was moved to the new Blog/Forums a blue responded he would have to check whether Shaman's Reincarnation was included as a Battle Rez limited in an encounter or not. That thread was then locked since the discussion was redirected to the new forums.

Since then I've seen no confirmation about Reincarnation's interaction with druid's battle rez or lock's Soulstone.

Oh and today for the first time I noticed in Version 4.0.3 during a 10 man ICC boss fight that after a druid battle rezzed a dead tank I was then killed by said mob he was tanking. My normal buttons appeared saying Release Spirit or Reincarnate and when I clicked Reincarnate I was unable to rez. I recieved the new error msg you get when too many Brezzes are used in a boss encounter.

So yes Shaman's are concerned and in a bit of a panic waiting patiently for confirmation if its working as intended or is a bug.
My biggest concern is whether or not they've fixed the bugs associated with this mechanic. Until today, the behavior of Rebirth was very unpredictable, occasionally allowing multiple Rebirths per encounter (in a 10-man) and occasionally not even allowing one. I also saw at least two distinct error messages associated with Rebirth failures.

And yes, if Reincarnation is included in the "battle rez" category, that would be extremely disappointing since it's self-only and already limited by a long cooldown.

Maybe you need to get an effing grip and learn to pay attention to what is wrong about it instead of trolling people about it. The reason Shamans, Druids, and Warlocks are so uptight about the Ahnk, well any of those classes that pays attention to Blue posts is on the main blue about the subject Ahnk was brought up but never said yay or nay as to whether or not it counted.

it adds/added (has it been fixed?) such an exciting element of spontaneity to raids! will we get to battlerez this time? will half the raid rez outside at 1hp to be oneshot by a priest's holy nova? flip a *%##ing coin!
Sorta makes soulstones useless. Brez is the only option since you can pick which player to rez based on the situation. Guaranteed raid spot for at least one druid...
If you don't die its not an issue Zarjanu......

I'm guessing its bugged and that they will fix it if they feel like it but in the mean time just don't rely on your Brez to save the day and you should be fine
