    Can someone explain the change to the mechanics of Tarecgosa staff? Is that a nurf or a buff?

    Good to see 10man raiders being given a fair crack of the whip.

    Does this mean it can no longer proc off for example a Mage's Deep Freeze or Combustion (since they have a 30s/2minute cooldown respectively)?

    It means the bonus spell will benefit from any cooldowns you are using. So if you have elemental mastery up as a shaman it will still get your 15% damage bonus.

    I think it means that internal CDs of trinkets such as Theralion's Mirror won't be ignored anymore, I read you could get a 50% uptime of the buff with the legendary.

    The bug fix to this has been live for almost a week already and was used to address trinkets. The Wrath duplication was ignoring the ICD of rng proc trinkets allowing for large uptimes on trinkets like Theralion's Mirror

    How does this explain the health nerf? I like the humor from time to time but that doesnt tell anything what was nerfed. Gladly we know about it, sure. But man..

    And what about the other stealth hotfixes?!

    Crushing fewer souls, hahaha

    Tentatively optimistic about this news. The staff bugfix was inevitable (and needed), and hopefully Essences now drop at a reasonable rate. Can't check the 10 man #s until next week though.

    The trinket Variable Pulse Lightning Capacitor is now pulsier, with more lightning
    Is this a damage buff or a proc chance buff?

    It's humorous, that's all. The people who are doing the attempt are well aware of the HP reduction by now :P



    Beth'tilac

    The hit points and damage done by drones and spiders in this encounter have been reduced by 10%.
    Wonder if this is for Heroic or Regular. Started bashing our heads in on this fight, wouldn't mind a bit of assistance :X

    I hope it's Heroic too, my mouse was about to learn how to fly after many tries

    Took them long enough.

    its for heroic and ya the glitch with the trinket procs getting reset was bound to get fixed.

    flying mice is never the answer!

    Beth nerf should be on heroic, its a cakewalk on regular already.
    VPLC is looking to be BiS for just about every caster now, hooray for fighting!
