These changes on beta ofc. I'm always happy if I see a healer nerf! Sub rogue nerf is acceptable cuz it's not soo huge. Dunno about the ferals, they are buffing the dmg and balancig(?) or nerfing the survivability... interesting. (source:

These changes are actually related to how they are changing abilities to start at lower scaling at level 1 and increase to reach the previous 'old' values at lvl 80, to help deal with the excessive dmg at 1-60 pvping. I believe they have also added a big increase to everyones base health, again scaling from 1-80, so that people on beta are now having around 40k health, naked at level 85.

Much of this has to be checked properly ofc, but it seems to be the case from a initial look
