Actually, if you go through GC's posts in that thread about this "stealth nerf", you'll see that Blizz hasn't the faintest idea about what is causing this decrease in DPS. There are many factors that may be leading into this (bugs with talents, buff, glyphs, or spells) because there aren't ANY clues pointing at what the problem could possibly be.Think before you say something like "LOL DEY NERFD US BUT DEY WONT TELL UZ LOL". Blizzard has NEVER done something like that. If they nerf someone or something, they will admit to it outright. They do not fear us, they listen.

Moonduh, that's not entirely true. They have a history of nerfing and tweaking without telling the players, at least when it comes to Shaman.The most recent example was the removal of the AP bonus on Windfury glyph, which was never mentioned or acknowledged in patch notes. Enhancement players will also remember that the AP bonus on the Emblem-bought totem (relic) also went missing for a couple of months without an explanation. In fact, up until patch 3.1, the best-in-slot relic for Enhancement was a level 70 item that came out in 2007. I'm not joking.I don't follow Elemental changes much because I don't spec Elemental, but I know they often get the short end of the stick.And while I'm not convinced it's malicious, I tend to think it's because Shaman tweaks are low on the priority list. While we were running around with broken glyphs, missing AP bonuses and our 2007 relics, there were dozens upon dozens of tweaks to Paladins and DKs. And let's not forget that for almost the entire life of TBC, there were some very smart people from EJ and the shaman forums, posting solid math and irrefutable proof that Elemental did not scale the same as other casters. That was never fixed until WotLK, as far as I know, but those who use Elemental as their main spec could speak to that better than I can.
