Ooo... I had no idea this was coming so soon - NOW I'm officially excited about the patch. No more being 100+ points over the hit cap!

Also note that arcane mages may need (may have changed) an additional 10*26 or 260 hit tomorrow due to losing two 3% hit talents, the MiseryIFF and the Dranaei. Or not. we shall see tomorrow I hope. So in the short term, some people may no longer be over the hit cap.If you plan to level, being over hit cap may not be a problem. Level 85 Casters need over 1700 hit to be at 17%.

For those of you who think you are over the hit cap (arcane mages especially), be aware that all hit buffs and talents are **going away.**Yes, no more buffs like 3% from moonkin faerie fire, 1% from Draenei heroic presence.No more tree talents like mage's Precision or hunter's Focused Aim.Before you hit the reforger, open up your character screen. You'll see it's been enhanced to show you exactly what your stats do.Check out the hit section and see if you are truly at 0% for a level 83 boss.You might find you actually need a lot *more* hit!

Be sure to check first. +Hit talents have been removed and so have Misery/IFF so you're going to need some of that extra hit. But yeah, because of drops my Ret pally is 80+ over hit cap. He had no +hit talents in 3.3 anyway, so I'll likely turn some of that into Mastery. My mage will be hurting bad though. He was exactly at hit cap in Arcane (with misery) and struggling to reach hit cap in his 'fire' set. My hunter's going to be about 2% below cap as well. Gonna have to reforge some of their gear from stats to hit and use blue/purple gems for meta req's. (Spirit becomes useless for most casters.) ...and my resto shammy should have a somewhat viable Ele offspec with the spirit to hit conversion. And to top it off, it's probable that all of my handy-dandy calculation tools (rawr, etc...) will be borked for a while and I'm gonna have to figure this out the long way.

Well, if you ARE a draenei you still give yourself the +1% hit. You just can't share any longer.
