Some buffs and some nerfs that will be tested in the upcoming days at the PTR. Remember that these changes may not go through as they are right now. Blizzard clearly wishes to do something about the past tank-meta by nerfing Ana though. What are your thoughts on this patch? Let us know in the comments below!
