According to MMO Champion’s latest patch 4.1 update:
x Swipe (Bear) cooldown has been reduced to 3 seconds, down from 6.
What else can I say? Except about bloody time!
No, wait, there is ONE other thing I could say…
Why the hell are obviously needed things like Swipes’ cooldown being reduced left as something to go live at some future date, but they can completely jerk Priest healers around on a whim every other day on hotfixes?
Never mind, happy Bear is happy that of my two AoE abilities, Thrash and Swipe, one of ’em might be useable against trigger happy DPS in pugs a touch more often. (No I don’t call Maul an AoE any more, lol)
Just you wait, though… next update on the PTR will be a 50% reduction in Swipe damage output. Just sayin’.
Oh, and Death Knights… grats on your new Rebirth!
