Damage was getting buffed by 23%, instead it got nerfed by 18%, it's a start no? ^^

Isn't that just a reversion of the 23% buff though?

I think they reversed the 23% buff, leaving it as is, and then nerfing the dmg of it currently on live by 18%.

Yeah, this is a patch note as opposed to a spell difference from the previous build. Patch notes are relative to live, so it should be an 18% nerf from the live value.

They first thought Monks weren't awesome enough, but then decided they should actually be 33% less awesome than they had intended to make them?

from what i heard, they are, but when you pay per hour of time, any thing that speeds up your grinding will help get you to endgame faster and cheaper

No low to mid level grinding in WoW!

Hey if they want to pay real money instead of spending all of 15 minutes in the Barrens grinding enough charms to set you up for a month that's fine with me.

Plus with how shitty some of my toons luck has been with coining gear you'd end up buying gold in the end anyway.

Yeah, keep in mind it's lesser charms and not the actual extra roll items. They still get the same number of extra rolls, they just don't have to spend the small amount of time to grind up 50 charms.

Also remember that, as of the last thing I read at least, in asia WoW is competing with a lot of FTP/microtransaction games, which mean they may have to think outside of what they really would liek to stay competitive (remember those millions of subs lost were primarily asian)

The funny thing about WoW and it's player base is history repeats itself over and over again.

This same thing happened with the raid lockout thing where everyone and their mother was flipping tables and swearing to cancel their accounts over something that was never even intended for outside of the Asian market to begin with.

Everyone seems so excited to rush to make themselves look foolish.

I don't know...baseline interrupt is kinda significant.

The girl at the fast food restaurant. I wasn't hungry, didn't want to eat, but have to because of my meds. So I ordered the kids' meal size.

First, she tried to upsize the entree from the mini to the basket. "No thank you."
Then she tried to offer an additional side. "No thank you."
Then she reminded me that the mini is really really small. "That's fine."
Then she tried to upsize the drink from the mini to at least an adult sized small. "No thank you."

It was absolutely hilarious, the look on her face.

*shrug* The massive buff to Arcane Shot will probably make up for losing Readiness.
(Especially at stupid gear levels, i.e. T15+. Leveling not so much, but whatever.)

I wonder if TotH will be better than Dire Beast even for BM after that change to AS...

Just watched the latest Top Gear, with the taxi race-off segment.

After packing up laughing when our local entrant rocked up, I ended up booing it (because as Hamster said, they are indeed hated and despised), then packed up laughing again when it was driven in the same style as down here!

Arcane change isn't really a pure buff, since the focus cost is increased as well. They are talking about buffing Stampede for PVE, which will help. Have to wait and see what changes they make to compensate for Readiness.

For TotH, I'll wait for Zeherah to add the Arcane change to femaledwarf.

That wasn't in the patchnotes when I wrote my post :p

Not sure if I think its significant, we used to have that, then they changed around how we got our interrupt, then it was removed, and now its reintroduced.
Nice, but honestly not significant jus a blizzderp "what are we going to do abbout this"

As for Readiness, well they stated pretty definitively that they are thinking about removing it, but would reduced the stuff baseline or add charges or somesuch (charges is pretty interesting and would be a buff, as you would essentially have readiness for each ability independantly of the others).

But nothing big, like trying to change the playstyle.
