Update - Added September 9 hotfixes.

Paladin - Censure Hotfix Incoming

After monitoring thousands of Firelands kills, we've concluded that Retribution’s damage was not where we wanted it to be, so we're going to increase Censure damage by roughly 40%. We'll also be keeping an eye on paladin damage as we move towards patch 4.3. We expect that this hotfix should be applied sometime later today.

We're also considering shifting some of the damage from Hammer of Wrath into other attacks. While that may not necessarily cure some of the current concerns about proc reliance, it should help smooth out damage a bit.

Quests and Creatures
  • If the Steamwheedle Rescue Balloon is killed at the start of Rocket Rescue, players should now be ejected properly, and the ballon reset to its home location.
  • When a player exits the Skeletal Steed vehicle in Welcome To The Machine, all quest NPCs will now despawn.

    It's a sincere hope of mine that one day people will realize that a sample size of 25, or even if you pug a lot 25-200 people, in a game of hundreds of thousands to millions of raiders, is an insignificant sample size that is completely statistically unreliable.

    They do realize this. It's called trolling. Why they don't get banned from so blatant trolling is beyond me though.

    Who cares about absolute statistic ? Who cares about what is the medium dps of x spec on all players ?

    That's REALY not the question. The question is "which spec is the best and which one is the worst". And for that question, it's pretty obvious that a sample of 200 of the best guilds in the world is enough. A R25 H-ragnaros-level isn't 25 random players playing together. It's 25 people "of the same top end level", and that is what make the sample relevent.

    The actual buff is so miniscule that the vast majority of paladins will never even notice it.

    All this does is serve as an excuse to nerf the ret pally execute, gimping the class for pvp.

    What's absolutely goddamn hilarious is the fact that they KNOW the problem with pally dps is it's proc reliance but they seem to want to do anything BUT address that issue:

    If you need Enhance fixed you must be doing something wrong. I'm doing 16-17k dps in Troll Heroics wearing 4 Blues. Main Hand, Off Hand, Helm and Shoulders, in fact my shoulders are 333. Enhance is doing just fine tbh.
