Since all the spellpower is being removed from (most) items it's going to be interesting to see how some gear changes, so I have some questions for those of you in beta.
What is your current intellect and spellpower pool untalented? Are they 1:1?
What has become of things like spell power socket bonuses, spell power gems, procs, ect?
If you are untalented and have all your gear removed, what is your base intellect and how much spellpower does it equate too (please post class)?
Untalented how much mana do you gain from your intellect, as in could you post your current intellect and current mana pool (and class) while untalented to get an idea how much each point of int will be worth as mana? How much crit possibly aswell?
If you have anything else to add that you feel is related please do, I'd like to get an idea how it's calculating out currently and how much people's spellpower will drop/go up when cata goes live. As I've seen, if it is indeed a 1:1 ratio, spell power will be going down, since items with about 100 spell power now have about 84 int in cata. I'd like to start to get an idea how stats will boil down after the *big* change. Thanks beta testers!
P.S. I realize there's been a lot of comments on what these values are, in rumor or blue post or otherwise, please don't respond with a blue post from 4 months ago saying "1:1 duh, source blue 04/03/10", I'm curious about the current beta release and how it stands right now and would like to hear from some beta testers who could spare some time to get some numbers going.
