Feb 21st 2012 6:58PM The problem you get if you *don't* nerf the heroics as well is one of granularity. If you tune the heroics for Paragon, what happens when you get a guild like, say, ours? We're good by the standards of MMOChamp's "who has beaten Dragon Soul" stats. Even though we're not even within *sight* of the world-first race, apparently we're in the top 5% of the playerbase. But we won't bench people or stack classes to beat individual encounters; we play with the people we've always played with on the characters they want to bring. The current system without nerfs gives us a choice between clearing the entirety of normal DS in one sitting and nothing to do for the rest of the week, or hitting the wall with no prospect of moving on.
Feb 21st 2009 7:25PM @Taldan: A lot of paladin offensive spells scale with AP and SP *simultaneously*, including ones for both Prot *and* Ret. This is why something like Fish Feast is good - the AP and SP bonuses *both* increase damage done.
