The only real odd thing about this... why did they only remove it from Ferals? I'm confused...

Yeah, so this patch is also a nerf to the already weak frost mage AoE. Along with the single target dps nerfs, it looks like blizzard wants frost to be the pvp spec.Frost = pvpFire = pveArcane = don't even try
I was wondering about this Strength of Soul change as well. How would this work? Does Inner Focus just allow you to simply ignore Weakened Soul or something, or is this just a horribly worded typo? Otherwise, I can't make heads or tails of that.
Dude how are you going to list spells from all three mage specs to compare to one druid specThe only viable PvP spec is Frost. What's Frost getting from this?Oh look, a 7% reduction in cost for one of their spells. And their buffs are now free, okay, big deal. They'd put on the buffs BEFORE the battle, so the mana cost does not affect their usage of mana in-battle at all; and a 7% reduction in one spell is not going to make a big enough difference to do anything.Why don't we look at Arcane spec? Arcane Blast is being reduced by 12%. That means it goes from 8% base mana to 7% base mana. Oooooooh, that is SUCH a big difference. And Arcane Barrage gets reduced from 12% to 11%. Again, wow, that's... so much, it's like almost free now!Fireball gets a 7% decrease (obviously to keep it with Frostfire's cost) and Living Bomb goes down to 17%. So basically, mages got an overall buff of maybe 1.5% less mana usage. If that.So explain to me how this is amazing buffs for mages in any way? And how does this affect your class, which is also getting buffed, in fact? Balance druids... well, let me check.Double length of Fungal Growth, Moonkin gives damage reduction, Shooting Stars gets +33% duration, Starfall goes faster, Sunfire's cost is halved (once again, to be in line with that 9% cost they used before), you get a +33% Mastery bonus, Typhoon's mana cost is halved, and this Wild Mushroom thing is instant now.So basically, all you got is buffs and you're complaining that mages got buffed too? What a joke.
Nerf the damned frost mages please.
