New Ghostcrawler Blog: Threat Needs To Matter
2010/12/16 at 11:52 AM
In his latest developer blog, Ghostcrawler talks about the threat mechanic, how it's intended to work, and how you (and the development team) know when there's a problem. He provides a bulleted list which is the major thrust of the essay, which I'll reproduce here:
If a tank is trying to generate threat on a single target, and it runs off to kill a DPS class, that’s a problem.
If a tank is trying to generate area threat on a group, and the tanked things are running off to kill healers, that’s a problem.
If Vengeance falling off causes the tank to lose threat, that’s a problem.
For more details, check after the break for the full transcript.

Holy Paladin Nerfs Explained
2010/12/14 at 4:12 PM
Nethaera just jumped on to the official forums to let us know about a holy paladin nerf:
no longer generates Holy Power when used with
Light of Dawn
isn't healing for as much.
Looks like paladin healers were spamming Holy Light on the tank to build up Holy Power, then using Light of Dawn to heal the rest of the raid for free.
These hotfixes were intentional and we wanted to share more information about the "why" for you all here:
Mana is supposed to matter for healers, and in the case of Holy paladins, that just wasn’t happening. We were seeing raid groups attempting to learn new bosses where the other healers were out of mana while the paladins were still at 90% of mana. We also thought the experience of paladins healing harder heroic dungeons was inconsistent with that of other healers, or our design intent. We thought it was only a matter of time before groups started going out of their way to stack paladins for raids or recruit them for dungeon runs, which of course is not our intent. For this reason, we thought it was important to address this point now rather than sitting on it until a fut
