3.3.3 discussion

Two changes I don't understand:

ferals:
Quote from: mmo-c
# Mangle now increases the damage of bleed effects for 1 min. (Up from 12 sec)

I'm not understanding the point behind this buff.  Is it a cat thing or a bear thing or both?

warriors:
Quote from: mmo-c
# Revenge damage has been slightly lowered, it now deals [ 31% of AP + 1636 ] to [ 31% of AP + 1998 ] damage at max rank. Down from  [ 31% of AP + 2181 ] to [ 31% of AP + 2665 ] damage. (That's still much higher than the live version)
# Improved Revenge now Increases damage of your Revenge ability by 30/60% (up from 10/20%) and causes Revenge to strike an additional target for 50% damage.

Well, losing the stun is sad for shutting down spellcasters.  I'm not sure I get why the stun was taken away for +1 target: is this supposed to buff new warriors with their multitarget threat?  Or are raiding tanks not getting any mileage from the stun, so might as well throw in more damage?  Or a nerf to warriors in heroics?  (HoR, I will sometimes cycle through Conc Blow, SW, and Revenge on the Mercenaries so they don't shadowstep onto a clothie.)

The mangle change is a quality of life improvement for kitties who are stuck as the bleed-bot.

Make cats happier when they don't have a bear/arms-warrior in raid.  Also a minor pvp buff.

Sounds like a PvP change to me.  Make it so warriors are a little bit more killable by melee.

Yeah, sounds like PvP adjustment, currently, engaging a prot warrior in melee combat  is an invitation to perpetual stun ending in death.
