I rolled a troll druid to check out the new quests and zones and also because trolls are awesome and I noticed something disturbing. The mangle tooltip goes so far as to saw "this ability is better than claw in every way and should replace it on your action bar." Now, I understand helping newer players out but it that level of help really necessary? It honestly sounds like you think we're all stupid. This sort of "advice" crops up in most of the tooltips but it really irked me while I was leveling my druid.

Anger aside, tooltips are notoriously late in getting fixed. What happens when a balance change makes the information wrong? You're just going to confuse new players instead of help them.

You can turn beginner tooltips off if you feel so belittled.

Really now? I can? Actually didn't know that...

Never mind then. My nerd rage just got pwnt.

Although that doesn't change my point that balance changes are really going to hurt newer players who need the tooltips because tooltips rarely get updated in a timely manner.

I think it would bring more shame than anger. Like do they think we're all 10 year olds?

No problem. Had the exact same post on the Wowhead Forums a week or so ago.
