I agree - but the scaling issue WOULD have bitten them in the backside again. In t10 we would have regenned a ridiculous amount of mana meaning no one had to manage it much and thereby making them have to prevent us from scaling properly. We should now be scaling and DPSing fine, and only the base figures are holding us back. These passing balance checks will hopefully see to that. Sadness at the crappy regen though, the ret pallies will NEVER go ooom. :-(
