Yeah, and in PvP you can now exit the radius of DfA more easily.
area covered by a circle is 2*pi * r^2 so we have:
r=5 ; area = 157 sq units
r=8; area = 402 sq units
(units are meters?)
so the new AoE is 40% of the area of the old.
I haven't played 1.2 yet. No doubt it will be interesting PvPing with my BH merc.
Playing merc now in 1.2 will only make you frustrated and angry! i quit myself... Enough is enough.
