Feb 24th 2009 9:07AM Considering we can use Exorcism on most mobs in Naxx I would say this is a definately a nerf. Allowing the use on the living creatures of WoW will help slightly, but not enough to compensate.
I remember hearing a rumor of buffing vengeance to 5 stacks. I am curious if we will see such a change to compensate for these nerfs.
Feb 17th 2009 10:09PM You could always try using http://www.wow-achievements.com/
This site shows you your rank among all the other people in your realm, or the world. I have no idea however, if it is possible to search by a singular achievement.
All I care about is that i'm 5th highest in my guild and in the top 500 of the realm last I checked =p
Feb 17th 2009 10:00PM Spirit works to assist healing in two ways. First it is a stat that increases the mana regen of the character. That was mentioned by Kemi.
However, there are talents that use your spirit as a modifier for spell power. I think most caster classes have a spirit related talent.
For Druids we have:
Improved Tree of Life Rank 3
Increases your armor contribution from items while in Tree of Life Form by 100%, and increases your healing spell power by 15% of your spirit while in Tree of Life Form.
Improved Moonkin Form Rank 3
Your Moonkin Aura also causes affected targets to gain 3% haste and you to gain 15% of your spirit as additional spell damage.
There are no spirit -> benefit (that I could quickly think of/find) for mages, or priests. Warlocks have:
Fel Armor Rank 4
28% of base mana
Surrounds the caster with fel energy, increasing spell power by 180 plus additional spell power equal to 30% of your Spirit. In addition, you regain 2% of your maximum health every 5 sec. Only one type of Armor spell can be active on the Warlock at any time. Lasts 30 min.
As of 2.4 the formula for spirit increasing your mana regen was Mana Regen = 5 * sqrt(Int) * Spirit * Base_Regen.
Because of this intellect is actually a large modifier of your mana regen as well. Spirit based regen only happens 5 seconds after your last spell was cast. There is also mp5 which acts similarly to spirit, but differently in that it is consistent through casting. There are talents that increase mana regen while casting as well.
