spell power? what does that mean for current game items? which of these will have +heals and +dmg for those of us not living in some future-crazy land but instead living with the actual stats used in the game?

All items are being converted to spell power in the next patch to prepare for the expansion.
These items are being implemented in patch 3.0, before Wrath comes out. So, the "spell power" stats are correct.

Spellpower is going live in 3.0.2.The future is now, and we're all getting nerfed.

If by nurf you mean the best talents to ever come out. Than yes nurf away Blizzard. The game won't be so much about equipment anymore. It will be about skills, talent points, and the like.

I see. the future is arriving sooner than I thought. I am afraid.and yes, this does nerf us. healing bonus cut by 1/3? sounds like a nerf to me.I put my dude on the beta and my bonus went from 1800 to 700. so I'd call that a nerf.

"and yes, this does nerf us. healing bonus cut by 1/3? sounds like a nerf to me."Its not. They are upping the base healing of each spell a bit so that the final healing numbers stays roughly in line with what you have now.

u sir are an idiot.Yes your +heals went down 1/3 but you will still heal the same. Learn to read.They changed everything to spell power to allow healers to level easier. Damage went up and heals...stayed the same.Go play warhammer and GTFO my WOW!!

terry, if you would actually CAST a heal, you'd notice that they're hitting just about as hard as they currently do. My healing went from well over 2k to something in the neighborhood of 1k-ish. But my heals are hitting for approximately the same. And that's actually without putting talent points in, b/c they reset them every time i login to the damn PTR.They made all healing spells hit harder and scale better, basing it on the new spellpower system.

my healing numbers on PTR and the wotlk beta were up pretty substantially, actually. alongside of the whole spellpower change, blizz tinkered with the coefficients of heals in order to smooth out the transition and so you shouldn't see a drop in healing at all -- as i noted before, my numbers actually went up.
