Twas more useful as a dispel guard, at least in pvp. Oh well.

I'm guessing the evo changes mean that one swaps in high +int gear instead of high +spirit. Meh, should be better for pvp mages at least.

Swirlyball is getting removed from the game overall, ITS A CONSPIRACY!

I have a swirly ball ability of sorts... unfortunately, it's reagent based and requires a trip to the Draenei starting area to obtain.

Sometimes the simple things are still fun, I guess.
