I wrote this post to highlight the real problems with Eclipse. In no way do I think Eclipse is the only problem in the moonkin spec at the moment. I completely agree that Nature's Grace is broken, and Starfire and Wrath are to similar. However, I wrote this post to focus on Eclipse.On another topic, I want to disagree with Tyler/Murmurs for a second (big surprise. :P). I don't think we are to blame for the current state of Eclipse. Talents are not valued in binary terms. They are not "good" or "bad". There is tons of gray in the middle. When Eclipse was first seen in the Alpha it was a horrible talent. You, I, and several other people did the math to show that it was true. They revised it several times and we eventually got to a talent that was acceptable at the start of WotLK. Blizzard could have stopped there, but they didn't.I don't remember any prominent theorycrafter calling for them to buff Eclipse in 3.2. There were a lot of people calling for buffs, but I don't think anyone wanted them to happen to Eclipse. In 3.3, we needed a buff again, but both you an I called for something other than an Eclipse buff. This issue is all Blizzards. They didn't want to do anything to risky or boring to buff us so they kept going to the well that they new a lot about. Now that well is dry.
