From MMO-Champion:"Misery (Tier 8 ) changed to 3 ranks and your Shadow Word: Pain, Mind Flay and Vampiric Touch spells also increase the chance for harmful spells to hit by 1/2/3%."The key word in that being "also increase" not "instead increase". Perhaps MMO-Champion is wrong but it's not as bad as you seem to think.

My interpretation of that is "also" meaning "in addition to the previous effect of those spells" (i.e. doing damage, etc). This is consistent with how many talents are worded; Misery in live says "…*also* cause the target to take an additional 1/2/3/4/5% damage."http://wowhead.com/?spell=33195

Touche, perhaps just wishful thinking on my part.As a warlock with 202 spell hit, I love being grouped with an elemental shaman so I can swap gear out and get more +dmg. I'll still like Misery if it's only +3% hit but I'd rather both =D.
