After running a few dungeons with some pre-patch 'meta' builds, I haven't noticed a significant change on my Ele or Warrior. If anything, the lower level dungeons (AC and TA) seem a bit easier. Or maybe I've been getting better PUGs.

As a long bow ranger, it was a big hit to long range damage.
Anet was smart to nerf it amid a blizzard of other changes.

Ferocity cut my Critical Damage in down by 1/3. I had 120% crit damage, now I have 75%. That's a bit bigger nerf than I was expecting.
6 points in your Ferocity trait now gives 20% crit damage instead of the 30% we were getting before. Crit damage food like Sweet and Spicy Butternut Squash Soup and Butternut Curry Soup give less than 4% crit damage whereas before they awarded 10%. Exotic Jewels barely give 1% crit damage now; they gave 3% before (and any gem less than exotic quality doesn't even give a full 1%).

AC especially is much faster to complete now, and killing Kholer now takes only a single fiery rush from an FGS. We only do wurm attempts on Saturdays, so I haven't gotten the chance to see it yet, but I imagine they're going to burn down much faster now with these changes.

With that being said, there's a definite notice in loss of damage in level 80 areas. Not enough though to dethrone Zerker/Assassin as Kings of the PVE meta though.
