[Holy-PVE] Light's Grace 3.2

Postby Nemuria » Mon Aug 10, 2009 2:16 am

Since 3.2 some pallys have reported that Holy Light cast time has increased.
It looks like Light's Grace is now scaling with haste. I read up on wowikki and this is the intended behaviour with talents. However it wasn't the case in 3.1 you still got a flat 0.5 reduction.
I made some quick test with swapping gear (rounded values)

    haste LG reduction
    0% 0.5s
    6% 0.47s
    10% 0.45s
    15% 0.42s

With 560 haste I am able to cast below 1.5, while a pally with 650 haste can't. This mean the more you gain haste the less you get from Light's Grace. Went on the EU forums and some sites without finding more infos about this change.

Sounds like they changed the coding on this talent from reduces HL's cast time by .5 sec to reduces HL's cast time by 20%. This makes the tooltip plain wrong and weakens the talent. I'll bring this up on the EJ holy thread if it hasn't been brought up already.

If that's the case, that's not just an undocumented change but downright criminal. You don't change something like that and not document it or mention it at all.

I haven't found myself casting HL enough since the patch to notice just yet. The only raid healing I did was a Naxx-10,OS-10,EoE-10 badge run and I could have done that in my sleep and probably did since I don't remember most of it. I'll take note if I have to heal when we go back into U-10 or our next CC run.

Thanks. It has been noticed by this pally http://eu.wowarmory.com/character-sheet ... r&n=Azaram
He's got quite a good gear and some insane 635 haste. It was hard to believe at first until more were coming with the same concern.

It's easy to figure out: just stand and cast HL with haste gear. Note the delta. Then remove some pieces and repeat, until you got naked. It's a matter of 0.2s you won't notice in a run.

EDIT: you can check the explanations on EJ. Especially haste doesn't get you stuck at 1,5 which I already verified back home (trying to find a function which decrease, increase and stuck at 1,5...). According to them haste always worked after talents and it's coherent with wowwiki. I keep the text as is, since it's still bugging me. The most plausible is we have wrongly counted a -0,5 flat reduction while it wasn't.
