    Default Eradicate now 7 sec from 3 sec

    It wasn't in the patch notes, but was parsing 61 MM to check the difference. Good news is that damage has gone up, though just a tiny bit (2%).

    Bad news is when I moused over Eradicate, and saw that the cool down was 7 sec. Fired it, and sure enough it took 7 seconds to cool down.

    I was happy with MM having bad damage with great utility, and now it has still bad damage with less utility.

    With the improved interrupt from Ranger, sounds like there's barely any use for MM raids now.

    Yep, this was announced and put on PTS awhile back. Sorry it didn't get into the patch notes.

    I still dont get it 2% miore DPS vs. nerf on Eradicate...

    beside PvP, this change is killing the last use MM has in PvE.

    Eradicate has been rampantly overpowered for years. It's just subtle about it.

    Actually, with the CD going up, you'll need more people to purge on Goloch.

    And if you're not running this on Kyzan, you must not have Warrior DPS, or you happen to have a lot of clerics...

    Caelem -- Warrior Tank/DPS

    Perfect rogue should not be a purge bot - beast master is a lot better at that role.

    Cleric tank can spec for purge (not a grounbreaking loss and dream orbs will more than make it for). Mages can all put 6points in necro, viable mage builds with purge: chloro, necromancer, warlock, harb-archon gets instacasr purge as well. Warriors get purge in the tank and 1min CD purge on steroids, beastmaster with the change of pet is decent there as well and 1sec purge normal attack.
    You have a lot of options outside the purgebot marksman.

    Tell this to all the raid leaders who pretty much throw a fit if all the rogues don't go MM for the bosses that need a purge. With this change I am very hopeful that I will never have to play MM again. Now if the DPS was on par with other utility specs then I wouldn't mind so much.

    Did EE the other day and 8 warriors were in the raid vs. 3 rogues and we STILL had to go MM ... sigh.
