WoW Balance Changes and Patch Updates!
World of Warcraft’s latest expansion, Legion, just keeps on going strong ever since launch. We can conclude this by the mere fact of WoW Token’s (which you can buy with WoW Gold) price just keeps on increasing. This means that people are playing and the demand is high. As a player of World of Warcraft and as an observer of the game, the people’s hype will not die down. Not soon, anyways.
Updates are Keeping Players Busy
Blizzard will not stop in giving the players what they deserve. They just released recently new content for Legion and it is all good news for everyone! Aside from the new Karazhan Mythic Dungeon which is the greatest hype for me, the new content includes new Trial of Valor Raid, continuation of the Suramar Campaign and new world quests. That’s not all! There are class changes also and here are the changes for Death Knight, Demon Hunter and Druid:
- Icebound Fortitude has returned, reducing damage taken by the Death Knight by 30% (remains at 20% for Frost Death Knights).
- Frozen Pulse now triggers if you have fewer than 2 full Runes (was 1).
- Frozen Pulse damage reduced to 60% of Attack Power (was 72%).
- Glacial Advance now hits targets in melee range more reliably.
- Razorice now increases Frost damage by 3% per stack (was 2%).
- Obliterate damage increased by 20%.
- Howling Blast damage increased by 50%.

- Distance from which Soul Fragments can be used for Soul Cleave, Soul Barrier, and Spirit Bomb has been increased to 25 yards (was 20 yards).
- Demon Blades will now trigger while on the global cooldown (was delayed until after the GCD). This is not a gain to throughput.

- Living Seed now copies 25% of the crit heal (was 50%).
- Seeds of the World Tree now increases that amount by 8%/point (was 10%).
- Owlkin Frenzy will now only affect Lunar Strike (and not Solar Wrath or Stellar Flare).
- Swiftmend healing increased to 770% of Spell Power (was 700%).
- (Balance, Guardian, Feral) Druids how have Regrowth in place of Healing Touch.
- Regrowth is castable in Moonkin Form.
- Talents, artifact traits, and legendaries have been updated to affect Regrowth where appropriate.
- (Restoration) Regrowth has 40% additional chance to crit (was 60%).
- Activating Incarnation no longer triggers a global cooldown for any spec.
- Incarnation: Chosen of Elune once again provides the armored Moonkin model.
- Galactic Guardian:
