I can't believe Blizzard doesn't automate testing of this stuff. When we can hit target dummies and see changes, they must be able to automate the same thing... take every class and cookie cutter spec - have them dps against a target dummy for long enough that random crap like crit strings average out. Apply a reasonable set of 5, 10 and 25 man buffs - rinse and repeat. Do some variations on the specs... rinse and repeat. Do some variations on gear (or put people all in T7 and T7.5)... rinse and repeat. This can all be scripted and run in parallel on multiple machines - it's not like they need hundred of live bodies to do this. It's silly that a player can hit a target dummy and see the difference yet Blizzard actually releases this and then goes... oops, our bad, we missed that.
