They should shift some damage to Cl, i like EQ but this is ridiculous.

Too often, we are mistaken for druidic types. perhaps that's true for some shaman, but do not let yourself be plagued by the ignorant belief that we are always peaceful.
Nothing about what I do is harmonious. I command the elements to my will. There is nothing offered in return. I would have it no other way.
Never assume an ogre's stupid, that's when they'll get you.
The Earthquake tuning was a good idea, it hasn't nerfed or buffed it in the slightest for AoE situations, it's just ensured that it is no longer useful for single target.
I previously tested this at 5706 damage in total at 5 stacks (@20% per stack), so 2853 damage without stacks. It'll now do 1902 damage with 0 stacks, but an additional 200% with 5 stacks makes it 5706, just as it was.
1 target: 33% (without CL use, as you don't CL on ST, CL is too weak)
2 targets: 20%
3 targets: 16%
4 targets: 13%
5 targets or more: 11%
Even on five targets.
Right now, it's (assuming EQ has 100 base dmg): (1 + 5*0,25) * 100 = 225
After the nerf, it's (1+0.4*5) * 66.7 = 200
1 - (200/225) = 11.1% damage nerf on 5 targets and even more on 4 or less targets.
your discussion is very confusing when you talk about different numbers, just want to bring some light into it.
so from the changelog you can see on http://wod.us.wowhead.com/spell=157765
Build 18663, Current Build -> 25%
Build 18566, Previous Build -> 20%
Build ??????, Upcoming Build -> 40% (and base damage of EQ nerfed by 33%) which results to an overall nerf compared to current build, see Klatars post.
- - - Updated - - -
so I guess they realized they buffed eq damage to much by buffing the perk and adding mastery effects eq in the current build.
however even if it is a nerf between the upcoming build and the current build, it is still a buff when you compare previous build with upcoming build, cause you will have mastery effecting eq.

I don't care about comparing old builds with future builds. I just compare the current one with the future one.
Additionally, EQ will also be used with 2 targets or 3 targets. In this cases, it's a straightout nerf, no matter what build you take.
You can not care about old builds all you want, but that doesn't change the fact that the next implementation is numerically identical to the first implementation at 5 stacks before adding on the mastery damage.
If anything, you could say the 25% build was an unnecessary buff.
