Nerf bat a swingin


Rather than try and address multiple threads, I'm just going to plop our current thoughts in this one post. Please excuse the brevity.

1) We think Fury, Arms, Feral cat and Retribution dps is too low and we will be buffing them.

2) We think mage dps is too high, especially Fire, and will be nerfing it.

3) We think Shadow priest dps is too high, but that's largely a result of Shadow Word: Death spam, which is tough on healers. We'll be fixing that.

4) We think Destro warlock dps is too high, but that's largely a result of Searing Pain spam, which is tough on tanks. We'll be fixing that.

5) As we suspected, PvP dps is just too high given that the health pools of Cataclysm haven't kicked in yet. While competitive PvP is over for the moment, we still want the environment to feel better so we will be buffing resilience. This change might be reverted at level 85.

There will probably be more changes after another night of raiding and BGs. Many of the bug fixes we have made today will affect dps as well. Stay tuned

I don't really read the forums, but when I was reviewing the patch changes it seemed to me that Fire spec would be top on the mage dps list. On the practice dummies it also seemed to prove out.

Maybe its just me being out of practice with the fire spec, but I just couldn't generate the numbers with fire that I could get on arcane in a live fight. Fire needs a really long fight to shine. Its completely worthless in instances, for sure. But once I get into an ICC fight, I'm afraid to "try" fire and find out that I stink, so I stick with arcane. Fortunately, I'm still either topping or close to topping the charts... but I'd still like to try fire.

Maybe I'll try it in a pug... but the way the lockouts work now, I can't pug w/o locking myself out of the raid team I've been running with.

Has Lisa been running arcane or fire?

Her off spec is Fire. She stuck with arcane as well. It been a struggle for her to nail down new rotations because as you know the old way of magin is out the window.

She also find that burst dps lacks in fire but sustained dps has increased in a fire build.
