    Medallion of Tenacity - Now with Stam!

    So on PTR they've replaced Mastery with Stam.

    I wonder if this is an intended change.

    I imagine this is their response to PvE trinkets being BiS for PvP tanks once Ilevel gets capped and resilience becomes completely baseline.

    They could have just as easily made a new trinket instead of removing the Mastery one.

    yeah no doubt, no point in removing mastery one... but the idea of having a stam one seems pretty cool for FC's i guess...

    Well this is dumb. Time for all dps to go human I guess...

    O now I see we can still get crit or spirt.... I want mastery.....

    If you were going to min max that much you'd already be human for the 4% more pvp power.


    I think its a great change.

    Good change, but not a great one.

    To quantify it as "great" they'd either leave tenacity as-is and make a new stam medallion, or make a new mastery medallion to complement this change. I have to admit though, "tenacity" is a fitting name for a stam trinket and seeing as mastery is of pretty high value to tanks I assume that was its intended purpose.

    However, replacing the mastery bonus, an ideal stat for a large number of specs beyond tanks, with stam for a select few roles strikes me as odd without something else to make up for it.

    I prefer playing NE for shadow priest. The meld is great vs cc and breaking burst. As far as mastery vs pvp power. I find the loss of damage very small. I prefer to have the extra mastery for my mana regen. This change just messes up my play style.

    I caught wind of a maneuver like this in the 5.2 PTR, and I wasn't any happier with it then. Unless other changes get made, I'll have to suck it up and buy the crit trinket.
