PepeHands still not fixing DK PepeHands
My man @ravenzx they will never show us love
Thank you guys
great changes, keep it up blizz. Frost mage snares are still crazy
Rosita's effect :(.
assa got nerfed? how am I suppose to get rating now? XD
Sooooooooo warlocks, DKs still unplayable? And no DH nerfs?
I told someone yesterday that any time enhance has ever been good in arena, Blizzard immediately nerfs them into oblivion, so do not use a boost on a shaman.

I really saved my friend some grief.
Add some boomkin nerfs into this list please. Boomkins are about to control the ladder.
Coo
No mare snare nerfs? Moonkin? DH?

Death Knights cannot be fixed in a hotfix.
Please, nerf Prot Paladins healing/damage and Boomkin damage, not just their azerite traits since the problem is on the templates, yeah they still exist. PepeHands

Also, fix DKs. FeelsBadMan

Why would they nerf demon hunter? It’s currently the 14th most successful spec 3v3 at 2k plus rating, and with only 2 specs one of which is no viable, it is on par with DK and lockas far as representation goes.
!@#$ DKS
yay back to shamans being trash again
