Upcoming Class Changes Set for March 5 Weekly Reset in WoW SoD Phase 2

If you’re having trouble with healing and mana conservation as a Mage Healer or are disappointed by your Hunter’s damage output, Blizzard has taken notice. In the latest, March 1 blue post on Season of Discovery class tuning, Blizzard listed several changes coming to runes and abilities with the next weekly reset. From what I can tell, Frost Mages seem like they’ll dominate in the Stranglethorn Vale PvP event. Here’s what’s in store.
