"Druids have had their defense skill cap increased to 175."

Druids have a defense skill max of 200 already. So pfft! Honestly, this wasn't too funny. Shame, I've been hoping for some funny stuff lately.

Playing my Gnome Rogue [of DOOM!], Melvyn, if you wanna say "hi" or something. I have no idea how that cross-server /tell stuff works, Bralan uses it to sexual harass me all the time though...

It's a bad joke. Nothing changed or is planned to change with the cleric epic or the duration of cleric buffs. If we were to change that though, we'd probably try to at least spell Resurrection correctly in the patch message. ;P
