Uhh... i'm sure I won't be the only one to ask... but the enchant changes? o.o
they are getting ready for beta testing i would assume. Can't wait to get a chance to get a key to play
Im super confused by the shoulder changes... hopefully its just bad mined data.
Next expan is item/number squish.So the shoulders make sense and probably is for future when it's just something to save up downloading later.
Oh, so the stats are getting changed... its like low level items ( like 10 intellect gives 100, and 100 gives 1,000 )If they're getting ready for the "Stat Squish" I think I understand it now :3
Have you folks noticed at all, that those shoulder inscriptions are the ones from Storm Peaks (level 80) and Therazane (level 85)? And roll over the enchant, and see that the original one says level 90, and the new one level 80/85.
I think it's for protection against people who still have enchants applied to old gear. Imagine having those enchants following the stat squish.
From blizzcon they said they were getting rid of a lot of enchants and I think they making the old ones less effective now, the item squish will come in one go so that it is balanced and you can still solo old content.

Pretty sure the comments about stat squish on the shoulder enchants are wrong. What's happened is that the enchant has been downgraded to level 80, and now will likely scale to 90. If those stats were at level 90, I'd agree i's squich, but since they're for 80, I think it's a move to scaling enchants, just like the other professions (e.g. LW bracer enchants).EDIT: Squish probably won't happen until 6.0, maybe 5.5. To introduce it now would cause all sorts of problems.
