Blizz did go a little too far on the nerf. I do however think a nerf was necessary, but how do you balance it out? I'm a healer for our guild. Pre patch we were motoring along 3/4 tk and 4/5 in hyjal and hadn't stepped foot into bt yet. We put bt on the schedule a month ago for wed. well before anyone knew when the patch was dropping. I felt we could do 3/9 in there pretty easy considering most guilds that begin t6 can get to 3/9 with some work. However, we went in and one shot najentus, two shot supremus, shade and gorefiend. The dps numbers are obviously way up, but if you go in without a strat, guns blazing you will still wipe cause healers start going oom from the raid damage. Hence the balance issue with the nerf. The dps is mowing down bosses like crazy, but healers are struggling with mana at the same time if the proper strats are not used and even if they are you will still be close to oom before its all said and done with. If you bump up the hp too much then healing will become ridiculously hard with the regen nerf, but the dps will get some of the challenge back. Or you can leave it as is and it becomes a joke for dps and a little tougher for healers. Don't really know how they would balance it out to fix the issue. Just for reference on the regen nerf. I personally went from close to 1k regen os5 and 450 is5. Now im down to 120ish is5. I understand the reason behind it because running around in northrend with 1.5k spirit pre-nerf you will be a walking mana fountain, but the nerf has created an unsettling situation for raiders, casual and hardcore here a month before wrath.
