Le sigh, and warlocks get *!@# on again, and other classes get a few, interesting changes. So far i'm a bit iffy with these nerfs, I guess I'll just have to wait and see the final product.
It doesn't seem to even occur to Blizzard how terrible some of the Shaman talents are.
I absolutely love the change for Euphoria. I'm a happy Boomie \\o/
Elite and Heroic Elite items most likely drop in the Terace (iirc) which you can acces only after clearing the 2 others raids, hence a higher gear quality. This makes me think "sha touched" weapons for the legendary quest are Elite and Heroic Elite weapons. It makes even more sense since we'll be fighting Sha there.
Wow, new rogue buff, really?Yeah, let's make stunlock even more OP.
More mage nerfs? are you ^&*!ing kidding me?
What is that about WARRIOR TALENTS! Stop reducing Warrior's damage and stop changing "Enrage" effect.
There aren't too many unwarranted nerfs that I can see. They revamped the way Malefic Grasp and Drain Soul interact with Aff Dots which warranted a complete overhaul to their damage numbers. The way they work now is somewhat similar to the mechanics each had before, only now there's a chance with enough haste to make Aff quite powerful, hence the needed nerf. They also are more than likely trying to keep you from being able to dot everything in sight and rack up massive DPS without much effort. This way, you can choose to dot everything, however to get the absolute most out of your damage, you will have to cast either MG or DS in order to get the damage numbers up. If you do some math you'll notice that the "nerfs" are almost negated when you're casting MG one a target, and you get a decent damage buff when using DS. From what I see with the Nightfall nerf, we'll once again have to switch back to rotating out MG and DS to get shards back.
To people complaining about nerfs: I think every class got nerfed in this, so everyone's damage is lowered.
Yes! Shield block is finally down to 30 runic power!
Not happy about Warbot (originally Battlebot before receiving a name-change at some point) becoming a schematic. It was supposed to be a limited promotion. People can just buy Blue Clockwork Rocket Bot if they want a robot pet.
