    New beta patch just got uploaded, these include our 3 level 75 abilities..

    A Murder of Crows: Summons a flock of crows to attack your target, if target is at 20% or less, cooldown is reset.

    Call Beast: Summons a powerfull Wild animal to assist you in combat for 12 seconds. Each time the animal deals damage you gain 2 focus.

    Lynx Rush: Your pet rapidly charges from target to target attacking 9 times over 4 seconds, dealing it’s normal attack damage to each target.

    Personally i chose Call Beast for now (as you can’t respec yet, choice matters for some time at least) And though it’s clearly not intended, i’m VERY happy with my desition.. It seems that blizzard forgot to impliment the 30 second CD it’s supposed to have, meaning that it is currently a spammable ability, spawning well in excess of 10(ish) animals before the first one starts to die xD spam arcane shot with the 2 focus pr hit*number of animals you get.. you do the math xD

    For Frost to get in beta, i think he needs to roll a night elf feral druids. That’s not really an atonement, but it would be sadisticly hilarious.

    Are we getting any new professions?

    I love Murder of Crows. It places a physical debuff with dispel immunity so the target keeps taking damage no matter what. Stealth classes will hate this beyond anything. On beta, crows were hitting for 4k each melee hit and they spawn in pairs of two in 2-3 second intervals. As BM, you can pop BW and this spell at the same time to reduce the focus required to use it as a little trick :) Of course this is beta and things are likely to change.
