Carrot before the nerf bat?It's pretty clear their intentions are to leave us as is or buff ourdamage further, as they say flat out that our damage was low, censurewas a tweak, and they'll do more if needed.Increasing all our damage a bit (like buffing 2h-wep spec another 5%),or playing with HoW's mechanics would both do the job. If they wantedto truly "fix" the spec, they need to lower our RNG, which is a resultof DP and AoW procs, not just increase it.The best option is probably to stop auto-attacks from proccing AoW.Instead, make 3-HP and DP Templar's Verdicts give AoW, with a 10sinternal cooldown. This ends up getting AoW once per 3-CS cycle, whichruns about 13 seconds long. You'd get 5 melee swings in that same timeframe, for 1 AoW proc. The difference is that you won't waste it withchain procs, it fits nicely into the rotation, and removes the randomaspect almost entirely. We'd gain a small amount of dps, and a lot ofpredictability.Our rotation would become CS, filler, filler, CS, filler filler, CS,TV, Exorcism, which ends up being incredibly smooth. If they loweredHW's cooldown from 15s 12s, it would fit that rotation as well,leaving you with 2 open globals per HP-cycle, and one would be filledby TV on average.Those small tweaks ends up adding a lot of stability to the rotation,while a slight buff to 2H-wep spec would cover our needed dps gain.
