Tons of changes in latest MoP beta build

Then newest build for the Mists of Pandaria beta test sees a whole host of changes, both large and small, with warriors taking up the biggest chunk.
With the MoP beta test in full swing, changes are coming thick and fast. Almost every class got some tweaks in the latest build, but warriors certainly take up most of the class change notes. Perhaps the biggest change is that changing stance will now trigger a three second cooldown on further stance changes. There are also some talent tweaks, mostly numbers, but the health cap on Vengeance is being removed in favour of a 20 second duration. Finally, several prominent glyphs were altered, including a 10% buff to Glyph of Overpower (20% increased damage, up from 10%) and a nerf to Glyph of Sweeping Strikes (granting one rage instead of two).

Warlocks also received a few significant tweaks. Unstable Affliction is receiving a pretty large buff, with 25% more scaling from spell power. On the other end of the scales, though, Unending Resolve will now reduce 40% of damage for eight seconds, instead of the previous 50% for 12 seconds. Paladins also receive quite a few changes in this build, like a huge 80% increase to the healing on Stay of Execution and a generous 56% damage increase on Execution Sentence. Protection Paladins are also receiving the same Vengeance change as warriors.

Elsewhere, other classes received some number fixes and maths tweaks. There were also over 20 profession changes, all of which you can find here.
