1) Major Changes like this NOT appearing in the Release notes is sloppy, stupid, incompetent, and unacceptable.
2) Nerfing Ranger Spellpower across the board, which affects all levels of Rangers including lowbies, in order to control some different ability, cocoon, which is only available to epic level characters, is sloppy, stupid, incompetent, and unacceptable. Emphasis on Stupid.
3) Through all my complaining over the Stupid Fudging Spit your team has done, I've never seriously considered cutting off the money, until now. Get your act together.
