I see this as being a way for people who haven't to see content that they otherwise wouldn't. The DPS/HPS increases are substantial using the same gear and the change to threat mechanics enable classes (warlocks) to dps harder before threat capping if they do at all now.The concern about shadow priests is unfounded with replenishment buff effecting the entire raid. Will the rate of incoming mana go down? Sure it will, but having the buff for the entire fight and giving multiple classes the ability to proc it, everything works out fine. S.priests got a large DPS buff to make up for the loss of utility in the form of mana regen. Well geared s.priests will still have a place and the good ones now might even be top or close-to-top DPS.Also, Heroism/Bloodlust is not end-all for Sunwell. My guild does most encounters up to M'uru with 2-3. Never once have we used 5-6. However, I suppose we might if we ever had that many raid ready shammies simply because it would make things that much faster, but we don't and we get on fine without. Yes, I know that not every guild is the same, nor do they have the same make up and strategies. But, since it seemed a major crux of this article was about needing more shaman to progress and I just don't think that is true.
