A big round of PVP changes will go live after today’s maintenance

Without much fanfare, Blizzard posted about a round of PVP tuning that will go live after maintenance today. The PVP adjustments affect Druids, Demon Hunters, Monks, Paladins, Shaman, and Warlocks. I have good news and bad news regarding the changes.

The bad news is, if you play one of the above classes, most of the changes are nerfs. The good news is, if you hate fighting against one of the above classes, most of the changes are nerfs. In fact, Mistweaver Monks were the only class above to come out without any nerfs (although Warlocks did receive one buff).

To see the full list of changes, check out the notes below:
