Lots of complaints lately about the addon spy. I think most of the complaints are in regards to stealth detection warnings (which was not directly addressed) but at least it can’t pull that information from more than 50 yards now. Probably a good change for upcoming BGs but TBH I’m not sure what the limitations to combat log range were prior to today’s hotfix.

Was hoping for a more significant "break" but this will have to do.

Never used spy and never will, but it's a good change. I also think not drastic enough but in the right direction.

Sure, technically it's just a very specialized weak aura or combat log tracker, but it felt like free track humanoids / hidden for anyone which is dumb and a not very indirect hunter / rogue nerf.

This fix does not affect text logs that the game outputs for raid parses.
Phew!

Used Spy for a while now, the range decrease is seriously noticeable. Also as a Hunter with Track Humanoids it's ridiculous. The beep lets you know someone is close, but the minimap will then let you pinpoint exactly where he is. It basically removes any need to actively keep track of your minimap to know if a juicy honor target is near.

This was important. Details is completely broken in raids now. In our MC run yesterday, it was wrong on almost every single boss fight. This, undeniably, sucks.

As a priest it's even better. Just Mind Vision the target and you know *exactly* where it is.
