* Chain Lightning now jumps to 4 targets but does less damage. We wanted to make the distinction between Lightning Bolt and Chain Lightning more clear.
* Storm, Earth and Fire this talent now increases all damage done by Flame Shock, not just periodic damage.
* Spirit Weapons now reduces all threat, not just melee threat.
* Unleashed Rage reduced to 2 ranks, now also increases your critical strike chance with melee attacks by 1/2%.
* Totem streamlining: The Mana Spring and Healing Stream Totems have been combined. The Disease Cleansing and Poison Cleansing Totems have been combined.
* We are also working on giving Enhancement and Elemental more PvP utility.
* Glyph of Windfury Weapon -- Increases the chance per swing for Windfury Weapon to trigger by 2%. (Down from 5%)

Anything unexpected/uber-interesting?

I think the totem 'utility' improvement attempt is rather cheap, it's nice and all, having to 'twist' (does that even still exist) less, but it looks like the requested suggestions in the 'Totems Totems Totems' topic are once again pretty much useless and for the most part ignored, at least for this 'huge' patch.
Good thing on the PvP utility, but I'm not cheering untill there's actually some hard facts.

Discuss.

Alright, messed up the topic title, my bad.
