I certainly wouldn't agree with that for PvE.Originally Posted by geraldford
The damage for typhoon on a single target is not worth the GCD cost. Starfall however easily is.1. If you have IS and MF on the boss and your 5 min ImpFF doesn't need a refresh, this is a great way to instant cast for some dmg on a boss
All this might be true, but it's all useless for PvE.2. Knocks anything out of stealth (eat it rogues) and functions as the only way a moonkin can stop a cast spell without making the target dmg immune and removing all dots (cyclone).
Starfall scaling was greatly increased with 3.1. I did some testing on the PTR before 3.1 and found that it was ~4% per star I think, which while it isn't the greatest in the world, it's still decent enough to ensure that Starfall is definitely worth the GCD cost even against single targets. The CD for Starfall has also been decreased to 90 seconds (60 with glyph), again increasing the worth of the talent point.Also note that starfall scaling is HORRIBLE. It will effectively get worse and worse as you get gear and raid compared to everything else in the game.
