Sep 24th 2009 4:49PM That's because I am :) currently at 17939 (85.4%) and counting. Been at it since the beginning of July.
Aug 20th 2008 7:19PM I'm not sure what you mean about Earthliving having only one rank—my shaman currently has five ranks of it. True, the tooltip states the same amount of +healing and the same HoT strength on each rank, but I don't think that that's the case. Rank 5 Earthliving ticks for ~212 (with 1100 +dmg/heal; the +heal from EL isn't listed on my character sheet regardless of rank), and Rank 1 only ticks for 34. Though, I guess if you're talking from a pure +healing standpoint, it IS sort of hard to test, as there's no way to discern how much +healing (if any) you receive from it.
The downranking change is certainly making it harder to test spell proc strengths, I'll give you that :P
