Dear Blizzard,Have you fixed the Sunfire macro bug yet?
Probably not, and it applies to Holy Priests and Affliction Locks as well. Macro parsing problems can't be fixed via hotfix.
Wish they'd also fix up the Trap Launcher one a bit more...yaknow.Oh well, can't have everything.
Miyari, wouldn't it be far simpler to have one large blog with the title of something like, "Cataclysm 4.0.6 Hotfixes (Updated (date)) and then just categorize them there? I'm sure there's some way to make the thread be seen. Possibly sticky each patch's list of hotfixes until the next patch?I just feel that having a new blog every day about 2-3 hotfixes is really.. obnoxious, and the thought of this continuing throughout the expansion makes my head hurt. On second, thought, has anyone on the Wowhead team thought of maybe just including a news board, sort of similar to mmo-champion? That would clear a lot of space. That way you could still have links to the blogs, and not take up the entire WoW General page.:P
Agree'd with HoleOfArt, I try to keep track of hot fixes as soon as possible but when I miss a day or two, there are suddenly a ton of tabs I got to open :P
I must say, the shaman buff was much deserved, and I have no idea why it wasn't in patch 4.06, because it should have been.Seems like more and more now, Blizzard is relying on hotfixes. I really hope this dies down as the expansion continues, because as it is its hard to know whats going on with your class and spec (much less others') unless you are keeping a close eye on blue posts. The worst part is that they can't update the tooltip in a hotfix, so its hard to tell what's up ingame unless you watch and calculate the output numbers.
Now PW:S is 25% base mana. At 85lvl priest have ~21k base mana. So it was around 5k to cast PW:S.With 33% increase it will be ~6.5k to cast PW:S.At 85 full T11 gear i have 110k mana.Now the funny part Rapture restores 6% once every 12sec. ~6.06k.Through those 12 sec you can cast 4 or 12 PW:S (if tallented) so it's = ~26k or 78k mana.Conclusion Rapture not enough mana return if PW:S will cost that mutch. Soul Warding no piont in having that at all :DDisc priest main spell is PW:S and now it seems that Blizz wants to change that cardinaly...
Three times hurray for new version of Purification . This will be a good boost for resto shamy. Thank you Blizz.
I'm confused Blizzyou give Disc the Mastery Mastery: Shield Disciplinebut you expect then not to use their only true bubble spell, Power Word: Shielddo you intend for Divine Aegis to be a mandatory talent?and you said you wanted to encourage them using other heals? what other heals do Disc priests use that are Disc and not Holy.sure you have done great for Holy in the past but Disc was just starting to feel viable again and distinct, when you decided that one of the two heals that make disc feel unique wasn't really what you want them to use.... what I think would be better was to balance it so that Disc has a number of unique heals that USE their mastery and make them feel like an absorption healer, instead of making them a Holy healer without the Holy talents to make it worth using and instead just has a slightly bigger panic button. (which is what a lot of us are reading from this) maybe make penance give a bubble for part of the move, or add a lot of other moves that will allow for Disc to use damage shields. If damage shielding is what they are intended to do then they should be able to do it well. If they are not intended to primarily do damage shielding then give them a different (and useful) mastery.I understand that you want them to feel fun and not just spam one move, so my suggestion is add talents or other base moves that allow them to use Disc heals instead of just Holy. I like the idea of penance being a big bubble. Though I agree they need to slowly be able to recover any health that is lost should their bubbles fail. But that should not be a primary concern, reinforcing bubbles should be the way they handle a situation, else (and I reiterate) they don't have a unique and fun play style.
I'm pretty sure Maloriak is bugged because our tank got Flash Freeze almost 5 times while trying to tank adds in our attempts on him last night. It made for a very hard encounter.
lol, yay moar feral nerfs :P
Im agreeWhy the hell blizz is doing that?Disc priest=absorbsHoly priest=big heals+AOEBlizzard is going to give to Disc priest some kind of AOE? NOOOOOOOOOODisc-Holy got two very diferent game play's, and now holy priest got a cheeper Shield and Disc? We got one more expensive hability, our primary hability...
Here's the rationale behind the PW:S change:
OMG whats with Disc priest hate Blizz, now that I finally have 93k mana and Im beginning to manage my mana, you go and make shields more expensive... I dont want to go holy, I have never liked it, I have always been disc and enjoyed it, stop sucking the fun out of healing!
So... I thought Blizzard fixed us, then I looked at the Priest changes and I don't think I'm seeing this right.Power Word: Shield had its mana changed to 34% for Disc priests. Holy Priests had PW: S lowered by 25% if the target is afflicted by Body and Soul. So you're telling me you want Holy Priests to shield more and Disc Priests to focus less on damage mitigation and more on being a busted Holy Priest? While Blizzard is at it, how about making the CD of Penance 30 seconds so we have no choice but to heal with our 3 basic heals .
