    In general I was expecting a little more of a shake up. Either raising the floor or lowering the ceiling but it seems as though they've gone with the whack-a-mole approach where some changes are justified but the absence of others seems discouraging.

    Holy nerfs were warranted, but why nerf disc dmg without buffing healing? Disc wasn't OP by any sense of the word.

    Ele looks like it's not doing that bad. The buffed specs were the ones that were legitimately lagging behind while the nerfed ones were the great outlyers. Elementals issue was more it's rotation feeling bad the last I recall. The post also specifies that isn't all the changes.

    Why? I am doing fine. Instead of pulling up warriors, they should take down the others a notch.

    Lol some of those buffs are a fucking joke. Feral, Fire, the two Warlock specs need more than 5%. Feral could be buffed by 20% and they still wouldn’t be topping meters.

    Balance/Feral simming bottom dps but feral gets a meager 5% and balance gets ignored


    lol

    I'm glad that you are happy with your class atm, but taking a warrior tank to m+ currently is more of a burden than anything else. The difference between DK/Havoc/Pala/Monk and Warrior / Druid is just so big that it easily breaks runs.

    And there's the rogue nerfs that everyone saw coming

    Also wow Blizz don't go overboard on that demo buff. Congrats now they're only nerfed by 40% of what they were in beta instead!

    Fire, shadow, destro and demonology will still be garbage.

    With that attitude for sure.

    I wonder how Mekw tanked that +16 key.

    Third feral buff since launch and we're still going to sim rock bottom. Thanks Blizz, guess I'll just reroll for this expansion?

    Flamestrike will at least hit for some amount now with the +6% and +15%. I will probably stop using LB and switch to Flamepatch with the change since I mostly run M+.

    I don't understand what isn't to get. Ele shamans are consistently one of the worst classes in the game and blizzard has continually shown that they don't care. They aren't going to be competitive, ever. If you're lucky chain lightning MIGHT be strong on mass AOE for a tier. It's time to just reroll like the rest of us.
