    Complete MoP Shaman Changes (Updated: 04/08/2012)

    I'm officially unsticking this as of 12/09/12. The beta isn't seeing major changes other than occasional tuning tweaks, and this thread has served its purpose, tracking beta changes for those without beta access.

    Last updated: 04/08/2012

    I have moved the in-progress change data to a new third post, and am converting this first post over to be a more clear and easy-to-read list of the upcoming changes, now that Mists of Pandaria has a set launch date and further changes are likely to be fewer and further between.

    The changes listed here will JUST contain the new tooltips. If you want to know what the original tooltips were, you can check the third post below.

    I avoided adjusting most scaling data when I started this, but I will be attempting to add that information back in. For the most part, it is likely to be relatively ugly math rather than a nice number, but that's how our database tooltips look. The scaling data will be entered in with variables (X, Y and the like), but with acronym tags that will let you see the actual ugly math bit if you mouse over the variable, like so; X. Hopefully that hits the sweet spot of being thorough but not blinding people with code.

    I am not going to keep updating this whenever we have scaling values changing. They change often, especially as we approach a release candidate, so I will be focusing on mechanical changes primarily.

    This thread is closed, but not dead. If you notice anything that has been overlooked or is new, please feel free to PM me about the new information or correction. If you wish to discuss anything in here, feel free to use an existing thread or, if there isn't one available on the topic, start a new thread for that purpose. If we get a massive infodump, please be aware that I'm not Superman and it will take me some time to update everything.






    Shaman Changes for Mists of Pandaria


    Talents:

    The talent system game-wide is being completely rewritten. Classes now get their necessary tools as Class or Spec Abilities, and talents are entirely optional additions.
    • 6 talent points
    • 18 talents
    • Pick one talent of any three for any given tier
    • New tiers at levels 15, 30, 45, 60, 75, and 90
    Official Shaman MoP Talent Calculator (Updated from prior but not current with the beta)
    Wowhead's MoP Talent Calculator (not official so take with a grain of salt, but usually more up-to-date than the above)


    Tier 1:

    • Nature's Guardian - Whenever a damaging attack brings you below 30% health, your maximum health is increased by 25% for 10 sec and your threat level towards the attacker is reduced. This effect cannot occur more often than once every 30 sec.
    • Stone Bulwark Totem - Instant - 1 min cooldown - Summons an Earth totem with 5 health at the feet of the caster for 30 sec that grants the caster a shield absorbing X damage for 10 sec, and up to an additional Y every 5 sec thereafter.
    • Astral Shift - Instant - 2 min cooldown - Seek haven by shifting partially into the elemental planes, reducing damage taken by 40% for 6 sec.


    Tier 2:
    • Frozen Power - Your Frost Shock now also roots the target in ice for 5s.
    • Earthgrab Totem - Instant - 30 sec cooldown - Summons an Earth Totem with 100 health at the feet of the caster for 20 sec. The totem pulses every 5 sec, causing roots to ensnare the legs of all enemies within 10 yards for 5 sec, preventing movement. Enemies that have already been rooted once by the totem will instead have their movement speed reduced by 50%. Replaces Earthbind Totem.
    • Windwalk Totem - Instant - 1 min cooldown - Summons an Air Totem with 5 health at the feet of the caster for 6 sec. granting raid members within 30 yards immunity to movement-impairing effects.

    Tier 3:
    • Call of the Elements - Instant - 3 min cooldown - When activated, immediately finishes the cooldown on all totems with a base cooldown shorter than 3 minutes.
    • Totemic Restoration - If a totem is replaced or destroyed before its duration expires naturally, its cooldown is reduced in proportion to the lost duration, up to a maximum of 50% of the full cooldown.
    • Totemic Projection - Instant - 10 sec cooldown - Relocates your active totems to the specified location.

    Tier 4:
    • Elemental Mastery - Instant - 2 min cooldown - Call upon elemental forces, empowering you with 30% haste for 20 sec.
    • Ancestral Swiftness - Instant - 1 min cooldown - Your next Nature spell with a base casting time less than 10 sec. becomes an instant cast spell. Passive: Increases spell and melee haste by 5%.
    • Echo of the Elements - When one of your spells causes direct damage or healing, you have a chance to gain Echo of the Elements, duplicating that spell's effect.

    Tier 5:

    • Healing Tide Totem - Instant - 3 min cooldown - Summons a Water Totem with 10% of the caster's health for 10 sec. The Healing Tide Totem pulses every 2 sec, healing the 5 most injured raid members within 40 for X.
    • Ancestral Guidance - Instant - 2 min cooldown - When you deal direct damage or healing for the next 10 seconds, 40% of that amount is copied as healing to up to 3 nearby injured party or raid members.
    • Conductivity - When you cast Healing Wave, Greater Healing Wave, or Healing Surge on a target located within your Healing Rain, allies within the Healing Rain share healing equal to 20% of the initial healing done. If your Lightning Bolt, Chain Lightning, Earth Shock, or Stormstrike damages an enemy standing in your Healing Rain, allies within the Healing Rain share healing equal to 50% of the initial damage done.

    Tier 6:

    • Unleashed Fury - Your elemental weapon imbues are empowered, granting additional effects when triggered with Unleash Weapon:
      • Flametongue Weapon - Increases the enemy target's damage taken from your Lightning Bolt abilities by 30% for 10 sec.
      • Windfury Weapon - For 8 sec, your melee auto-attacks can trigger Static Shock.
      • Earthliving Weapon - Further increases the effectiveness of your next single-target heal on the targeted ally by 50%.
      • Frostbrand Weapon - You leech heat from the enemy target, gaining 50% movement speed for 4 sec.
      • Rockbiter Weapon - You take 40% reduced damage from the enemy target for 5 sec.
    • Primal Elementalist - Your Earth and Fire Elemental Totems draw forth powerful primal elementals directly from the elemental planes. These servitors are 50% more powerful than regular elementals, act as pets directly under your control, and gain additional abilities.
      • Primal Fire Elemental
        • Fire Blast - Instant - 6 sec cooldown - Inflicts Fire damage to an enemy.
        • Fire Nova - 2 sec cast - 10 sec cooldown - Inflicts Fire damage to nearby enemies.
        • Immolate - 2 sec cast - 10 sec cooldown - Burns an enemy, then inflicts additional Fire damage every 3 sec. for 21 sec.
        • Empower - Instant (Channeled) - 10 sec cooldown - Empowers the elemental's creator with fiery energy, increasing all damage dealt by 5% and healing done by 10% while the channel continues.
      • Primal Earth Elemental
        • Angered Earth - Instant 5 sec cooldown - Taunts and causes additional high threat to all enemies within 15 yards.
        • Pulverize - Instant - 40 sec cooldown - Smashes an enemy with a rocky fist, dealing 150% of the damage of a normal attack, and stunning the target for 4 sec.
        • Harden Skin - Instant - 60 sec cooldown - The caster's skin hardens into pure granite, reducing all damage taken by 40% for 10 sec.
        • Reinforce - Instant (Channeled) - 10 sec cooldown - Surrounds the elemental's creator with an earthen shield, reducing all damage taken by 20% and increasing healing done by 10% while the channel continues.
    • Elemental Blast - 2 sec cast - 12 sec cooldown - Harness and direct the raw power of the elements towards an enemy target, dealing X Elemental damage and increasing the caster's Critical Strike, Haste, or Mastery by 3000 for 8 sec.


    Some tidbits to keep in mind with regard to these talents;

    • Echo of the Elements was stated to work like Dragonwrath's proc, roughly speaking.
    • Totemic Restoration is not a 1:1 proportion, it is 1:2; losing 50% of the duration of a totem reduces the cooldown by 25%. Losing 75% of the duration loses 37.5% of the cooldown.





    Glyphs
    Prime Glyphs have been removed. Many Primes, which were static boosts, were deliberately changed to be Majors; this change under most circumstances has resulted in a reduction in power, to be more in-line with the intended value of a Major glyph. This list is complete; all of our MoP glyphs are listed herein.

    • Lava Burst is no longer included in Shamanism, but the cast time has been changed to reflect the after-Shamanism value of 1.5s, meaning the effects have been baked into Lava Burst as there's no need to have it be both Elemental-exclusive AND modified by an Elemental passive

    • Lava Surge - Now not only resets Lava Burst, but also makes the next cast instant.

    30/07/2012
    Moved the original full-data post to a new third post below, rewrote the original to be more user-friendly but not include the complete tally of all changes made to each ability, just the current incarnation.


    27/07/2012

    This water shield change went live a build ago, but I didn't bother adding it to the notes, so first, here it is;

    • Glyph of Water Shield. Increases the passive mana generation of your Water Shield by 10%, but Water Shield no longer activates when you receive damage. Increases the mana generated reactively by your Water Shield when you are attacked by 50%, but reduces the passive mana generation by 15%.

    • Water Shield - The caster is surrounded by globes of water, granting 1368 2,138 mana per 5 sec. When a spell, melee or ranged attack hits the caster,2928 mana is restored to the caster.

    • Static Shock - When you use your Stormstrike or Lava Lash abilities while having Lightning Shield active, you have a 45% chance to deal damage equal to a Lightning Shield orb without consuming a charge. (As LS no longer has charges, this is also a tooltip change that does not reflect an actual gameplay change.)
    • Greater Healing Wave's mana cost was reduced to 31.6% of base mana, from 36.3% of base mana.


    13/07/2012
    I'm trying something new; the changes posted in the changelog here are the sole change that has been done since the last Beta build, the main post will continue to try and maintain a record of ALL such changes. I'll try and keep the older changes fading to lighter gray as I update, the current wording will always be the black plus blue additions.

    01/05/2012
    Beta Build 15657

    • Only major change seems to be bookkeeping, clearing up the Shamanism and Elemental Fury abilities so that EF provides the Crit boost and Shamanism provides the damage boost, cast time reduction, and CL CD removal. This changes nothing in practice.

    • Removed the "no ES debuff" stuff, which dated from the buff mechanics blue post a while back, as Earth Shock still provides a debuff on the beta and it appears they may have either overlooked it for that post, or chose to re-include it after making that post.
    • Grace of Air and Elemental Blast are on the DB as giving 3,500 Mastery (or Haste or Crit, for EB, whichever's higher), up from 2,717. Since we can't see scaling at level 90 yet, we don't know if this is actually a buff or if it reflects a change to ratings.

    Not much in the latest build.

    • Glyph of Totemic Vigor now increases the health of totems by 5%, down from 10%.

    I have moved the raw change data to this third post, and will be attempting to "clean up" the main post to be easier to read at a glance. Now that we're approaching the launch date, changes are likely to slowing down, and it will become more important to have a clear explanation of what's new.





    Shaman Changes for Mists of Pandaria


    General:
    • Buff totems - gone. All buffs will be provided via auras, totems will be utility options, so that you never have to choose between utility and your buffs, or refresh totems to maintain those buffs.
    • Quite a few small quality-of-life improvements that will be detailed completely in the following sections


    Talents:

    The talent system game-wide is being completely rewritten. Classes now get their necessary tools as Class or Spec Abilities, and talents are entirely optional additions.

    • New tiers at levels 15, 30, 45, 60, 75, and 90
