Oh no! An increase of 1 attack power on BoM?! What a buff, that needs to be nerfed this second!okay, sarcasm aside, this sucks, royally.JotW didn't need to be nerfed, short run yeah we are pretty good on mana, but longer fights wittles it down, specially in a raid where I'm helping with raiding healing a little with my insta-FoLs.Looks like I'm going to be forced out of using SoC now that they nerfed it, great.God, I dont see how all the seals needed to be nerfed either, or judgements for that matter.God, they might as well make crusader strike a baseline ability, it lost it's perk a while ago, and isn't worth a 41 pt talent, how about that for a talent change?

"JotW didn't need to be nerfed, short run yeah we are pretty good on mana, but longer fights wittles it down, specially in a raid where I'm helping with raiding healing a little with my insta-FoLs."I run around in greens and blues and a few epics, and I am able to keep on attacking endlessly. Literally. I tried a couple of times, on test dummies and other stuff. I left a 10 minute fight on 1400 dps and 95% mana.95 %.That is overpowered. I can keep DPSing no matter what. I shouldn't be able to do that.I'm glad that we are being balanced, although of course a little part of me wanted it to stay this way.I doubt the Replenishment nerf is going to have a huge impact, since everybody will be using Seal of Bloos/Martyr and get mana from Spiritual Attunement anyways.

The only exception is shamans, who get shamanistic rage to replenish mana. Melee classes are SUPPOSED to be able to spam abilities on every cooldown. It's choosing the ability to hit that determines DPS, not choosing whether or not to hit ANY ability in order to conserve mana.

Ret pallies still get plenty of mana with JotW, Seal/Judgement of Wisdom, Spiritual Attunement, natural mana regen, and any sort of raid buff (which non-mana users can't use).They can still heal themselves and others and do a ton of various stuff with mana that other melee classes cannot do. Perhaps except shamans, though their mana regen is still better than that of enhancement shamans.
