Haha, the amount of complaining astounds me. Personally I never had a problem with soul shards, you work with what you got. Only having 4 bags never bothered me as it's all my lock ever knew. I'm just wondering, do you still get shards when a target dies? When I grind shards on a regular mob I hit drain soul at the end and it often time doesn't damage them. However, I guess I could only use drain soul to damage said mob, maybe get three or four shards off one mob. Depending on how you grind shards this could make it alot quicker.I believe the amount of shards you can hold should be determined by how much your soul shard bag can hold. If you have a 12 slot shard bag you'd end up throwing away alot of shards, the max you should be able to carry is 12. The same goes if you have 2 32 slot bags, your cut-off on shards should be 64.The best part of this is learning new bosses. Before you only got a shard when you finally killed the boss(not counting adds) so you could go in with a full bag, use every shard on healthstones, soulstones, summonings, soul-shatter, and not be able to get on in return as you still havn't killed the boss. Now when the raid leader calls for a wipe you just hit drain soul and wait for the inevitable. Depending on how high you are on threat and the proc rate you could get 2 or 3 shards back for every failed attempt. Now you don't have to worry about running low on those hard boss fights. Being in a crappy guild that wipes alot I applaud this change, just like I think those warlocks fighting the hardest bosses for hours on end should applaud it.
