To me this looks like a MAJOR nerf to PVE Elem shammies, a break even for PVP Elem shammies, and a HUGE boost to PVE/PVP Resto shammies.Unfortunately, the game does not allow Elemental Shammies to actually gear up in the 70 man raids. Sure, Tier sets are fine (even tho the t4 and t5 set bonuses are very questionable), however, an Elemental PVE shammy will end up wearing cloth most of his/her life.To me the math seems simple:I currently have +1000 spell damage -> hit LB for 1700.With the LB nerf: 0.5s/3.5s * 1000 spell damage = 143 spell damage per LB lost (means I know hit for 1557).Lightning Overload buff:New: 20% x 0.5 = 10%Old: 5%Difference: 10-5 = 5%Now combining the two:1557*1.05 = 1635SUMMARY:NOW: 1700 damageFUTURE: 1635 damagehmmmm...i guess it is a typical Elem shammy buff....cuz it's pointed downwards.....i hope we get nerfed one day...then i might wake up and actually win a mail piece of caster gear in a raid dungeon.we r going to see a lot of hybrid classes form because of this.....20/0/41
