Reading official notes right now for my Shaman... Seems they're completely rebalancing the top two tiers of talents, and it's almost certain based on the changes that they're doing this to make Enhancement switch from always using Unleash/Echo.

Elemental Mastery now has a 1 minute cooldown (was 2 minutes).
Ancestral Swiftness now increases spell haste by 5% and melee haste by 10% (was 5%/5%).
Unleashed Fury Flametongue now increases Lightning Bolt damage by 20% (was 30%), and Lava Burst damage by 10% (was 0%).
Primal Earth Elemental and Primal Fire Elemental now deal 20% more damage.
Elemental Blast now has a chance to increase the caster's Agility for Enhancement Shamans.


I really don't want to be adding more buttons to my bars (EM, EBlast) or using controllable pets...

Our T15 really looks ugly. Big disappointment after a good T14.
I though they'd understood that primary colors aren't pretty, but here we have pure yellow, cyan, and green glows. :(

  • Hand of Purity now reduces all incoming damage by 10% in addition to its other effects.
  • Eternal Flame's periodic heal now provides 100% more healing when self-cast.
  • Judgment now costs 5% of base mana.
  • Protection
    • The base damage of Consecration has been increased by 789%, and it now scales less efficiently with attack power by approximately 11%.


Source: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/822655 ... 12_21_2012

May need to do some Call to Arms testing on the PTR regarding the Consecration stuff.

UPDATE: There's also a paladin bug fix that affects our (in Knaughty's words) retardedribution brethren:

It is no longer possible to refresh Inquisition to a lower duration.


If they were gonna buffs us up, they had no choice but consecration... Specially if were are weakest in the aoe dept.

Sotr - single target, wouldnt help
As - not enough targets
Cs and J - single target, wouldnt help.
Hotr - if buffed, might as well get rid if cs
Hw - meteor effects makes the buff useless tbh

As an aded bonus, cons was like our third (possibly second) best damage ability on single targets.

We also got glowing crotches...

They also had to go with those colors as appsrently, we are wearing lei shi's corpse...

Remind me of the t9 horde set thread... We pretty much had to explain color theory to blizz in this huuug thread...

Good thing there is transmogrification then isn't it? :)

Meant to ask earlier, couldn't find the note with the change to Nimble green gems. Where did you find it?

So...Upped cons base damage from 109 to 860

But that 11% less scaling is 32 to 28 or 32 to 21?

Now I wonder if this is really a buff. Or rather, how big it is.

Exactly why i posted that

base damage is fine and all,but if they nerfed the scaling the hard way.....

Take 100k ap,do the 3 scaling and keep in mind that the buff to base damage is 751x9...I'm not seeing the buff tbh,even if it's there it's going to be so small...
Unless i'm missing something obviously

Well, before it was 81% of AP, now its 72% of AP...

The base damage went from 927 to 8226 tho...

So...using my 20416 AP unbuffed

before, [927 + (20416)(.81)] vs [8226 + (20416)(.72)]
That would be 17463 vs 22925

Over 9 secs, that is

157167 vs 206325

Of course, I could be completely wrong...

That's still over 5k dps though (49158 damage every 9 seconds).

But that's on base AP

If you factor in vengeance the difference will drop

Have I got this right? 927+(100000*0.81)=81927 vs 8226+(100000*0.72)=80226

I've got Cons doing less damage at 100000 AP after the change. Tell me I'm doing this wrong...please?

Maybe I'm smoking something, but I swear I read somewhere that they were adjusting it so that the melee haste would affect prot gcds.

The buff is to help us at low vengeance levels, which is when we get all our adds taken away from us with a single key smash...

Hahaha, NO

I tried to say that with a straight face and I couldn't , even if there is some truth to what I did say...

We'll see once this is on the ptr

THIS was exactly my first thought after reading the patch notes. Well, at least we get some love, and it makes it much easier to stay ahead of the DPS for when we opt to cast salvation on the co-tank :mrgreen:

I'd imagine the island hub explains a lot of the story. The basics will probably be Garrosh wanting to use the power of the Thunder King for his own purposes, with the Alliance trying to prevent that. If I had to guess the official winner of this tier will be the Horde (the Alliance was the official winner of who killed The Lich King) setting them up as a more powerful foe for the next tier.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

so they will finish invading dustwallow marsh and take back the barrens? :shock: :?

back to the tier sets for a min, the druid one looks more like a dk or lock set, and the rogue one is a decent looking assassins creed knockoff..but not too bad
the rest are eww - meh at best.

the season gear, i actually like the dk one. only 8 skulls! :lol:
time will tell if i grind out a bunch of honor on my dk for the pvp set, or stick with my current set of tmog - the green starting gear

oh and ty Halabar for this mental image..but look on the druid season set...
are those horns on your belt or are you just happy to see me?
