WotF Nerf

"Will of the Forsaken now shares a 45-second cooldown with similar effects, including the Medallion of the Horde, Titan-Forged runes, Insignia of the Horde, etc."

Seeing how I just changed my rogue from a Blood Elf to an Undead this change is somewhat upsetting at first.  But, then I got to thinking about it.  Being able to break a fear, charm or, sleep affect and still being able to trinket immediately afterward was a bit unfair to fear classes.  And this will not go into effect until 3.3 anyway if it makes it out of the PTR.  I tend to believe that it will.

Now a 45 seconds cool down really isn't that bad.  I haven't run into too many occasions yet, where you need to go back to back with WotF and trinket.  I would still prefer WotF over any other racial for a rogue for the simple fact that it is now a second trinket for most situations on a 45 second cooldown and a 2 minute wait before you can use it again.  I know that sounds odd but, you know what I mean.

I'm sure you'll read a lot about this change both people praising it and condemning it but, in the never ending pursuit of 'balance' it is a change that had to be made.  And remember that with Cataclysm most racials are going to be changing anyway.
