The new patch!

Wellp we got our expansion pre-patch and gosh, I think so far so good.

Priest: no more plea, and bubble spam is back, yay!  We also got something called Luminous Barrier that replaces PW barrier that feels like old school Divine Aegis.  I like it, I am quite happy.

Druid, we lost displacer beast and dash and now it’s something called Tiger Dash I think, that doesn’t blink but you run really fast.  I’ll have to see how that goes.  We lost Healing Touch which seems like the way all healers are going but it feels weird.  My keybinds always called for the big heal to be on E, the quick ‘oh shit’ heal on G, and alternate heals like Penance, Swiftmend or Riptide on F. Well Disc priest lost Greater Heal or whatever it was in Legion I believe and now druid lost Healing Touch.  What am I going to do with E now?  E has always been my key for skills  that needed to be hit a lot but we’re kind of losing that in general.  I guess Regrowth will take that spot now.  I just wish refreshing Lifebloom was still a thing.  And of course losing healing touch means we can’t take the series of talents that let us spam INSTANT PROC healing touches all over the place.  Damn it.  I only got to enjoy it for about 2 weeks.  Ugh.


All in all though, on the two characters I plan on playing, the changes look good.  I still have to test out feral though.
