Topic Wind Shear: Range needs to be increased.
It was 40 yards; however, somewhere in 4.0 it was changed and I am uncertain why it was. I found no discussion on this, so I made one.
I don't believe it was ever 40 yards. If there was a talent in Elemental to do so, please, feel free to correct me.
The glove bonus was removed, with no particular reason given. IMO, bake in that extra yards, and bring it in line with most ranged interrupts/silences. Yes, it's different, it has a 6 second CD, but it also doesn't have a silence component, nor does it lock out for as long as most interrupts. Not to compare apples to oranges, or say "Other spells have 30, so Wind Shear should as well", rather a 10 yard range in which I can't interrupt but they can cast is enough.
I like the idea that there's a 10 yard range where I can be outplayed. That's fine by me; If someone is taking advantage of that 10 yard range to get off their spells, that means they're playing well.
