@Muffin:I am glad that you have been wtfpwning people on teh BG's, really I am. I'm glad that you honestly feel that these changes were necessary.I agree to a point.I also agree that we were OP, although I was a little power-drunk when it first happened. I don't really PvP though and I saw the change as bringing some much-needed damage to my under-geared guild and my solo play. So Blizz made a mistake by upping the numbers... wait, they were already in place, the system just finally allowed us to take advantage of them. I can see if I were a resillience-capped whatever getting facerolled by a "n00b in teh greenz" getting extremely upset. But I heard a rumor lately that said that the resillience system was bugged as well, does anyone have any info on this to confirm or deny?If the resillience system was bugged, it would make sense that everyone's s3/s4 toon getting smashed would happen. That's what the stat was for, anti-crit. but with nothing to mitigate the crit, wtfpwning is sure to ensue.JoTW, that made me scratch my head, but I did run out of mana on occaision in 5-man groups. I had to take up the healing after our healer went down due to a poorly timed AoE. I ran out of mana pretty quick actually, as I only had about 5k to start with. I honestly agree that the amount given back by the "insta-judge mana regen" was too high and the change, although scary on paper, might not be so bad.The seals? ouch, that hurts everyone (all specs). I find it upsetting as I leveled off and on as holy/shockadin in order to take advantage of all of my abilities, but was still regulated to healbot. The only DPS I could do solo was maintained by my old seals, with all of the changes to the system, I don't know how that will effect everything.Its too late for all of us to blame anyone for anything although the constant "Ha Ha you suck retn00b" that happens in the forums and from a couple of the comments around here does suck. Yes, it was too high. I enjoyed it, it was nice to not have to drink after every kill. But when I'm running around Netherstorm killing 68-70 mobs 3 or 4 at a time with 75%+ of both health and mana at the end of the fight, it's too much. BUT. the extent of the nerfs seems too extreme, and I feel that this is a reaction to too many people not being able to handle the change. Some of the ret players have spent countless hours trying to min/max their effectiveness only to be overshadowed by the "ret-tard" who was able to epic himself or herself out by staying just north of AFK in a BG. When the buffs came, those of us who know what we're doing became extremely effective, if not nigh-godlike in out spanking ability. And it also became obvious that we were too well-off. So yes, the nerfs were bound to happen and it was OP, but I just don't want to see the whole class nerfed "to the ground".Maybe I will check out DK after all.
