May 17th 2011 11:38PM I've got a bit of a theorycrafting question here, but maybe someone will know.
As far as Hot/Dot haste plateaus go (Like how Resto druids go for 2,005 haste, as it lets them get another tick off from some of their hots), does the 5% haste buff (Shadow Priest/Boomy Aura/Wrath of Air totem) count TOWARD that? 5% haste is ~641 haste, so if I was trying to hit that 2,005 haste plateau and knew that I would always have the 5% buff, could I reforge only to 1,364, rather than the full 2,005, or does the 5% haste only count toward casting speed?
May 17th 2011 11:24PM I agree with what you said, but when I got to the second parenthetical about ICC spam healing, I had to take a double take to make sure I wasn't losing my mind, lol.
Other than that I pretty much agree. People see nerfs and instinctively feel attacked and think they need to be mad about it, but don't realize that without nerfs either things would not be balanced, or things wouldn't be fun and/or challenging anymore. I used to get mad whenever I saw a nerf but these days if I don't understand the reasoning behind it immediately, which I usually do, the devs explain the reason for it and I'm okay with that.

I feel silly now, as I read that shortly after I posted this comment. Still, my comment stands. I don't want the four-piece we have right now. I won't ragequit if we're stuck with it, but I will wear that tier set in a very unhappy manner.
May 14th 2011 3:14AM Actually if you do it correctly, using Drain Life as your filler puts out more dps than Shadow Bolt. Blizzard has never liked it, and they are finally putting a stop to it, lol. Never liked us locks being that much like spriests.
May 14th 2011 3:13AM The 2-piece resilience bonus from Cataclysm PvP sets no longer stacks. If a player wears 2 pieces each from 2 different Cataclysm sets, the player will only receive the 400 resilience rating bonus once. This change does not apply to PvP sets from prior expansions.
Cuuuuurses. I thought I was so clever, getting an extra 400 resilience because I don't care about a lower cooldown on Grounding Totem (If it wasn't obvious from that last statement, I really suck at pvp. I need all the resilience I can get).
Welp, guess I'll have to learn to use a fundamental part of my pvp arsenal *sigh*
May 13th 2011 4:55PM I really hope that is a sarcastic mockery of people who are overly dramatic of tiny changes.
If so: Well done, I lol'd.
If not: QQ MOAR
May 13th 2011 4:54PM You have a bad player on that shaman. That is the problem, not the freaking class.

WTB Useful Resto Shammy 4-Piece.
Please Blizzard, do not tell me that my four piece is actualyl like a 1k final chain heal hit that I will rarely ever see anyway (10 man healer). That's just messed up man.
May 11th 2011 2:32AM @Odin: I read that and made a strange squealing noise that I don't think I could ever reproduce again.
