    I believe the latest round of ptr patch notes were tweaking the troll racial numbers. So highly unlikely that it goes in stupid strong as it is now.

    Yeah, ele force is still going to be strong for a lot of things. Going from stupid OP to good. We might see healers shy away from it and switch to +9SP. Coastal surge also got nerfed, but something like FC resto druid is going to like it for that extra self-healing. And other healers still might want to extra HoT. I can see ele force still being useful for healers with a dot (priest/druid/shaman) as it will still be a lot of damage for a single GCD. Monk/Pally I can see switching away from it.

    Feral might like to weapon swap. Use ele force when dotting/bleeding and switch to 12agi for the finisher. For all 3 of the feral druids out there.

    Survival hunter will be the most interesting. 12agi might be the preferable 2h weapon enchant. Dual wielding will obviously see a nerf as its based a lot on double ele force, but we'll have to see if its still viable.

    Multi-dotters may actually want to look at PPM options. For boomkins and affliction who can spam a lot of dots on a lot of people, something PPM could proc a lot more. Single target dotting you would prefer ele force. But if you're dotting 5 people up, its the same 10 RPPM for ele force. Will need some testing to see if something can proc enough (with a good enough buff) to compare.

    can anyone bring a Black Widow band into ptr and see if there are any changes ? its a green item, so technically even if it doesnt change, relative to the new items, would this no longer be the BIS for intel users ?
