Yes, the extra crit was there for a reason. Most likely, to reward players that took all 5 points in that talent. No, it wasn't a bug, and Blizzard has never claimed it was. Stop saying that, you only make yourself look even more ignorant.It's a design philosophy change. Make every rank be worth the same. Look at warrior talents, Improved Revenge used to be something like 10%, 30% and 40%. They normalized it to 15% per rank. Your flawed example doesn't really apply, considering each rank of Fel Concentration gives the same 14% pushback resistance. And guess what, Blizzard has every right to change anything in their game for whatever reason they feel is appropiate. Despite what the masses of soapbox kids claim, Blizzard knows what they are doing. They have a much better idea than any of us. Ever occured to you the 4 piece arena set bonus nerf might be related to a future buff? Maybe shammies are finally getting a talent that grantes them pushback resistance for their lightning spells? No, I doubt that is conceivable to your paranoid, over inflated ego.I'm surprised there has barely been anything related to the much awaited built in totem UI, a huge feature in my opinion. But a small consistency change has everyone whining as if it were the end of the world.

I'm confused. What are Shamans so concerned over, is it PVP or PVE? I don't know much about their PVP, but they perform damn well in PVE as ELE or Enhancemen. We bring an alt Shammy into our raid and he gets within the top 8% dps (and no, we all don't suck, he just knows how to play the game) and he is in greens and blues while most of us are at least 2/5 T5. Is it different in the T6 level?Also, you must remember you are like a SP (but a little more focused on DPS). You bring HUGE buffs to your group, whether it is melee, casters and/or healers) in PVE at least that is HUGE, as well as focus on DPS. Granted you will not be at the top of the charts with the rogues/mages/fire locks/hunters, but you enable those in your group to be there x4 others so it is a HUGE increase in dps. Like I said, I don't know the PVP aspect, but in PVE you are golden... but if you really wanted to roll a top DPS class in PVE then you should have rolled something else, because you are a DPS with a strong emphasis on party buffs.
