A few changes for an upcoming beta build.
- New talent: Sins of the Many. Your damage is increased by up to X%, diminishing for each ally with Atonement.
- Likely location is L75, pushing Lenience to L100, and removing .
We agree with trying to find a talent that calls to having a smaller number of Atonement
s out, but are trying a version that still provides some benefit in all situations.
's concept was generally subsumed by the new mastery (which is seeming successful so far), and stacking Grace on top of mastery led to huge variance in the strength of Shadow Mend
and Power Word: Shield
casts. Making that choice with mastery is a better place than making it with a talent that was essentially required in some types of content.
The talent rearrangement should leave L100 as a row of talents that most show their strength when effectively healing a large number of targets, and L75 as a row of talents less focused on that situation.
So that Power of the Dark Side
remains neutral as to your choice of which mode of Penance to use.
It has been unintentionally strong ever since the squish, as many people have observed.
At the moment, there's some baseline compensation on Shadow Mend and Power Word: Shield, which were so often buffed by Grace in the situations where they were most important. The final amount that will be appropriate is still somewhat up in the air after all the changes (including having mastery affecting them). In any case, the main goal is that the ability to focus healing on one target shouldn't be so dependent on a specific talent. That was also a problem with L100 as it was.
