I've read all the PTR patch release note, get prepared guide, and everything else I could get my hands on, and I can't find anything that say's Blizzard intended to remove guns/bows from all classes except Hunters, but that appears to be the one of the outcomes of 5.0.4.
Yes, I can equip bows and guns in the main weapon slot, which suggests to me that as they're not Redd'ed out as 'un-equippable by class, that I should still be able to use them.
Problem is, that characters such as my Rogues and Warriors have lost their <Shoot> ability, so they have no way to use them. Primary attack functions all require/apply-to melee weapons only.
There is nothing in the know issues list, but there appears to be a problem of some kind.
Either it was the intention to remove these ranged weapons from these classes, in which case they should be marked as RED and shown as un-usable by class (and the Patch release notes updated to include something this dramastic), or the <Shoot> ability has been left out of the Spell Book UN-Intentionally, in which case I wish someone would aknowlege that it is a problem to be addressed.
If I'm missing something very basic, could someone please point me in the right direction....
