The Darkmoon Faire trinkets were said to have seen the stat levels of their procs altered considerably, indicating that they had all been nerfed down to a default value of 2,682 from their current positions.
But datamining isn't always accurate. Lead Systems Designer Greg "Ghostcrawler" Street has tweeted in the past about this, and reiterated his message today with this missive:
.@wtsheals We didn't change the stats on the relics. We made a behind the scenes change to let them upgrade correctly. Data mining issue?- Greg Street (@Ghostcrawler) November 13, 2012
Blizzard Blue Daxxarri then added a similar message to the US forums:
While it's important that the Darkmoon trinkets weren't nerfed, the big message here is that datamined content is not always fact. Yes, dataminers get a lot right, but always take their information with a pinch of salt.
