Patch 2.2

Word on the interwebs is that 2.2 will go live tomorrow. Here is the Druid section from the patch notes:

  • Cat Form (Night Elf) melee attack range was too short compared to Tauren Cat Form and other attack ranges. It has been increased.
  • Cyclone: It is no longer possible to Cyclone two targets at the same time in the outdoor world.
  • Cyclone: Paladin Auras, Trueshot Aura, and Aspect of the Pack will now be automatically reactivated when Cyclone wears off of a victim who had one of the abilities active.
  • Enrage: If this buff is clicked off early, the armor penalty it causes will now be removed as well.
  • Enrage and Furor should no longer initiate combat, though it will prevent rage decay for the duration.
  • Entangling Roots: It is no longer possible to have Entangling Roots on two targets at the same time in the outdoor world.
  • Entangling Roots: It is no longer possible to have more than one rank of this spell active on a player.
  • Force of Nature: Using this spell in a neutral town will no longer cause its victim to be attacked by town guards. It also will no longer cause nearby party members to lose stealth.
  • Hibernate and Entangling Roots duration against PvP targets has been reduced to 10 seconds.
  • Hurricane: This spell is now affected by area damage caps. Its bonus damage coefficients have also been increased.
  • Hurricane: A tooltip error in rank 3 has been corrected.
  • Lacerate: The damage from this ability will now stack properly when two different characters are applying Lacerate to a target.
  • Mangle: The duration remaining graphic will now display properly for Mangle after it has been refreshed on a target. It will also no longer sometimes apply the Mangle debuff to nearby targets when the Mangle victim is killed by Mangle.
  • Nature’s Grasp: This ability can now trigger while the Druid is sitting.
  • Tree of Life: The party aura from this shapeshift now extends the full 40-yard radius as stated in the tooltip.

Looks like a lot of PVP-oriented changes, although the increased melee attack range for cat form is most welcome. I can’t count the number of times I have chased a running mob, running right on top of it, and still not hit it. Or prowling up behind something and spamming pounce but having the mob see me before I hit it.
