The next patch is going to hit some classes hard in the raiding dept. Several classes are getting their stat values modified (enhancement shamans especially), and some classes have had their entire raid-spec destroyed (21/40 warlocks). While this might be a good thing in the long term (mashing a single button is silly) it means for four weeks, these classes' gear is essentially going to be gimped. I haven't heard whether enhancement shamans are getting int added to their gear, but all those strength gems they've been stacking are now worth half as much. Same goes for 21/40 warlocks - all that carefully stacked +shadow gear is now worthless, since destruction is now, at its core, a fire spec.I think some classes - especially ones that formerly brought buffs to raids - will understandably be worried that they will be undesirable for raids as their current gear gimps them - and damage may be all they have to offer now.
