Feb 24th 2009 5:43AM STEALTH DPS NERF!!!!
Yeah.. The shadowform change is a HUGE nerf!!!
As it is now. If i have 25% crit chance, my DoT's do 25% more dmg.
With this change, if i have 25% crit chance, I only end up doing 12.5% more damage on average!. The reason is that the "normal" crit damage bonus is only 50% more dmg, not 100%!!!!!
This is a big nerf in DoT dmg for shadow priests.
Feb 2nd 2009 5:49PM It's not a matter of dumbing the game down and making it easier, it's a matter of making it more fair.
DPS can use the same gear they get when grouping with others for when they later do some soloing/questing.
So why should a healer class be forced to get an entire extra set of gear to feel the least bit viable when soloing/questing in between his healing duties with different groups? Anyone who has ever tried to kill a mob in healing gear know what i mean, its a very very slow and tedious process.
