<DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I imagine implementing the /coercerchangeclass command is going to take them some time to code  :smileytongue:</DIV>

<b>To be fair they did set our beguile back to pre nerf levels the day before</b>That consumed the available time for coercers fixes for the next 6 months (was pretty clever anyway:do some big nerf, some smaller nerf, then when everyone complains fix the small nerf, everyone is happy) <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

<DIV>WEll to be honest I think I problems are going to tale more then 2 days of quick fixes to take care of. Though it would be nice to know the current status.</DIV>

<DIV>This isn't the full list of changes being made in the next Live Update.  Wait until they say that all the changes are in before continuing with the doom and gloom. <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>In the meantime, be happy for the maintained spell window boost.  While that helps many classes, it certainly is a big help for us with all our buffs/mezzes/etc.</DIV>

<DIV>I hope that these changes to test are to get the small changes tested and out of the way for the BIG (notice that no mage classes are listed except Wizard/Warlock) mage changes.</DIV>
