  1. Nice list. Doing 25s we should never have a problem hitting all of these but I have seen some complaints about the limited number of specs bringing spell haste. Oh, also shaman can bring weakened blows with Earth Shock.

    • I’m not sure why they made made all the abilities that provide spell haste spec-specific, but I agree we won’t have a problem getting all the buffs covered in a 25. Added Earth Shock, thanks for pointing it out.

  2. Retribution Paladins and Arms and Fury Warriors add Physical Vulnerability now with resp. Judgements of the Bold and Colossus Smash.
