You mean +hit, right? They are unifying melee and spell hit as well, I think.This is a major boon to e.g. elemental shamans, who currently are the only casters wearing mail -- they often need to go down to boomkin leather or cloth to get spell hit on their gear.The other difficulty is that some stats are more powerful for some casters than for others, at least traditionally. +crit for druids? Yes for Moonkin, no for Resto (HoTs can't crit). +crit for for priests? Not terrible for Holy, but lousy for Shadow. Spirit for Paladins? Not too useful, because they can't regen mana from spirit while casting, and their mana-regen model is based on chain-casting and critting a lot.

"This is a major boon to e.g. elemental shamans, who currently are the only casters wearing mail -- they often need to go down to boomkin leather or cloth to get spell hit on their gear."Since when do elemental shamans find themselves in need of major spell hit? A 70 shaman with a standard raiding 41/0/20 build had 12% while nakes - 6% from elemental precision (elemental - 3 points), 3% from nature's guidance (resto - 3 points) and a further 3% from Totem of Wrath (elemental talent fire totem ability), meaning they only need 50-odd hit rating to cap out. You can get 50 hit rating by accident!My girlfriend's shaman achieves hitcap with a glyph of power and the T4 gloves and pants. Also note that totems of wrath stack, so two elemental shamans with their totems out will each need only 1% (which you will pick up from the Draenei racial if you play Alliance)
