Alright, now that I've gotten the facts out there: woo hoo! I couldn't be more excited about these changes. This goes leaps and bounds towards addressing the few Feral concerns I had left (which I guess says something about how minor my Feral concerns were). Armor-bearing jewelry has been bizarrely good for us for too long, and I'm glad I won't be desperately clinging to my Badge of Tenacity at 80. I don't PvP a lot, but I think Feral PvPers will be very pleased with the mana fix. And while I sort of liked the flavor of ProtP, it ultimately felt un-fun. Kudos for scrapping a very interesting idea in favor of fun.
What do you guys think of these changes? Anything left on your Feral wish list? And please don't say "bloat;" we're not supposed to be able to do great Cat and great Bear with one build, and it would be overpowered if we could. Besides, dual specs are coming.
