An Indirect Confirmation

Wow, as anonymous pointed out in the post below, Nethaera basically confirmed supposed "leaked" patch notes on this website. How? Well, check these notes out from the text there:
Additional darkmoon cards can now be found on high level outland creatures. They can be turned in to the darkmoon faire to make powerful new darkmoon card trinkets. Look for Lunacy, Storms, Furies and Blessings cards.
And then you quote Nethaera's latest post:
You will now have the chance to find additional Darkmoon cards (Lunacy, Storms, Furies and Blessings) on high level creatures in Outlands, which you can turn in to the Darkmoon Faire to make powerful new Darkmoon card trinkets.
Balls. That is all I have to say. Balls.

Good quotes from this thread:
My biggest complaint is that this nerf - if true - is almost completely out of the blue, with no comment from a CM to the paladin class that they're currently looking into the healing tree. The last we heard they were concerned with the burst DPS of the retribution tree, there has been no communication at ALL about healing.
To me nerfing Illumination instead of buffing raiding Priests is like saying "We really don't know what to do for holy priests, so we're just going to make Paladins a less desirable option."
By the way, Tigole says the PTR might go up tomorrow:
...we're hoping by tomorrow or early next week...
Brace yourself for the incoming patch notes.

Nah, I wasn't implying she has balls, was just using it as a word instead of cussing.

There are rumors that Holy Priests will be getting a substantial buff as well, as can partially be seen by the boost to Circle of Healing in the "patch notes" that were posted.

Blizzard is not "nerfing Illumination instead of buffing raiding Priests." They're doing both. Still, I feel that Paladin problems in endgame won't be resolved until the weakest aspects of the class are made strong - namely the complete lack of real need for Paladins to be meleeing (and I'm not talking about tossing a judgment and hitting something once every 15-20 seconds to keep it up).

Yeah, I decided to quit a few days ago. Time expires Saturday.

For real.

It's not because of the nerfs or anything, it's just because the game is, in the long run, a waste of time.

I'd rather earn a few more bucks and spend em on the ol' ball 'n chain.

My just recently ran out.. and so has my patience. I'm tired of leveling up alts just to have something to do in this game that's very entertaining.
