4.0.6 Patch Notes, DK Cliff Notes Edition

Death Knights

* Icebound Fortitude now breaks stuns when used, in addition to providing immunity to them.  FUCK YOU ROGUES.
* Necrotic Strike’s absorption effect is now reduced by the target’s resilience.
* Talent Specializations
o Blood
+ Crimson Scourge has been redesigned slightly. Instead of a 50/100% chance to make the next Blood Boil free when Plague Strike is used on a target with Blood Plague, the talent now gives a 5/10% chance to provide a free Blood Boil when the death knight lands any melee attack on a Blood Plagued target.
+ Will of the Necropolis no longer refunds a Blood Rune when it resets Rune Tap’s cooldown. Instead it makes the next Rune Tap free while Will of the Necropolis is active.
o Frost
+ Howling Blast now deals 40% less damage to all targets other than the primary target of the spell.  Howling Blast: now less likely to make your warrior tank hate you.
+ Might of the Frozen Wastes now also increases all melee damage by 4/8/12% while wielding a two-handed weapon.  $5 says 2h Frost is still balls.
o Unholy
+ Desecration is now also triggered by Necrotic Strike.  Does anyone else miss the arms?  I kind of miss the arms.
+ Runic Corruption procs while the aura is already active now add 3 seconds to the existing aura duration, instead of simply refreshing/overwriting the existing aura.
+ Unholy Might (passive) has been reduced to a 5% Strength increase, down from 10%.
* Glyphs
o Glyph of Death’s Embrace no longer refunds Runic Power when self-healing via Lichborne

    They took away the arms?!? What the crap is that?

    I’ve been having too much fun with Frost to even bother with Unholy, but proccing hands of graspy doom was one of my favorite parts of being Unholy. /sigh

    Ah Howling Blast, I’ll miss your OP-ness. I won’t miss your aggro magnet abilities, however!

    Pretty quiet for DW Frost, I wonder how much of a different it’ll make for 2H.

    @Psyn – Dude, they’ve been gone for awhile! It made me sad. :(

    Lichborne + Glyph of Death’s Embrace: TO THE GROUND, BABY! Can’t say it is a surprising move, but still mildly disappointing.

    I’ve been playing unholy since the wrath beta, and I miss the arms, made it different from paladins’ holy flatulence. But these days I’m just annoyed at all the ground effects. Get your desecration + healing rain/priestly circles of light/druid green stuff + whatever the boss is doing that you’re supposed to be able to see…I’m standing in fire? What fire? *dies*

    The arms were the only good thing about desecration. Now it just looks like a smelly cartoon fart whenever you scourge strike, which is a totally gross and distracting graphic. Every now and then I’d forget what it was, flash back to Grobbulus and start running away. I eventually paid like 60 gold just to ditch desecration and pick up a shorter death grip cool down instead.

    I so hate that dead point in Unholy to move on to the third tier in talents. Why can’t I haz free interrupts?
