So we all know that Bear damage was nerfed recently, but it doesn't seem to be "17%" and "20%", especially not for Swipe. My druid's only 62, and before 4.0.3a, tanking was just fine and dandy:
(These are just ballpark figures, from what I experienced)
Maul - 250-350, 600 crit
Mangle - 650-850, 1500 crit
Swipe - 450-600, 1000-1100 crit
Now, after the "17%" and "20%", it's:
Maul - 150-250, 450 crit
Mangle - 500-650, 900 crit
Swipe - 100-150, 250 crit
Why was Swipe nerfed so much? 1050 crit -> 250 crit is NOT 20% and 17% reduction. Using 1100 as an example, 20% reduction would bring it down to 880, and another 17% from 880 would bring it down to 730. Not 250. It's to the point where even the slightest AoE is too much for me to handle, like a Cone of Cold or Dragon's Breath from a mage, or Rain of Fire, etc, mobs just fly off of me because Swipe hits for so little. Hell, often the HEALER pulls off of me, if I don't hit every single mob with either a Maul or a Mangle. Pulls of more than 4 are just horrendous.
So is this atrocious swipe nerf a bug, errors with low level scaling, or "Working as Intended" ?
(No, this is not a troll thread. I'm dead serious =/ )
