    Don't think this is going live today, but the 2.1 patch notes are huge.

    Highlights:

    Black Temple (25-man w/ Illidan as the final boss, probably will never see him myself. :()

    New Level 70 solo and 5-man quest areas: Skettis, Etherium Prison, Ogri'La (not clear if there's any new instances with these)

    Nether Drake epic flying mounts are now available through quests. (still need the 5k for the training which in my mind defeats the purpose of questing for an epic mount other than to be cool)

    Hunters got buffed and can now kindly STFU about their damage. :p

    Rogues are very happy too, Sap no longer breaks stealth, no more need for the Improved Sap talent. They should also be happy that Glancing Blows have been reduced, and that mobs will no longer perform Sweeping Strikes and cannot "chain" Cleave players not in front of them.

    Ice Block now causes "Hypothermia" for 30 seconds, during which another Ice Block cannot be cast. To this I say, BWHAHAHAHAHA! Suck it Frosties. :p

    Lots of other stuff, a huge list of item changes.

    What happened to hunters that caused the need for a buff?

    The Darkmoon Card: Crusade looks interesting. (for mages: +8 spell damage for 10 seconds for each harmful spell that lands, stacking up to 10 times). A use trinket like Xi'ri's Gift would be better for short trash fights, but the Crusade card might outshine something like that on a longer fight.

    My spell haste was nerfed to shit. I gotta replace both haste items now. This is weird since they buffed spell haste in a previous patch, and now they are nerfing it back to less than it was before the buff.

    Well their logic was that now it effects channeled casts, so they have to reduce it a bit.

    So channeled spells benefit more from haste than casted? In that case, would it not make more sense to apply a haste coefficient to channeled spells rather than roll in a casted spell nerf with channeled haste?

    It is more likely that haste was just too overpowered, saying nothing of channeled versus casted.

    No, I mean that now Spell haste effects channeled spells. Apparently it didn't before.

    What does spell haste do exactly? Reduce your casting time?

    And that's why they nerfed haste? I don't see that they are related.

    Yes.

    Thats why they say they nerfed it. It wasn't "Where they wanted it to be".

    So the patch is today. How was your character affected?

    I got a robe (ugly), small iceblock nerf (hypothermia), spell haste nerf, 5% more frost damage via talents, and rougly 60 more damage via raised item levels.
