    I don't think this is a last minute buff (although it looks like that from player's point of view). We know they were testing lots of various SP buffs throughout, including the reverted MB buff. My guess is that they tested loads of buffs internally (MB, SW:P, maybe others we never saw) and just wanted to wait to see if SP would be good enough without it.

    Then, when it became clear SP would still be low after the MB buff was reverted, they put this in instead.

    My only rage is that this buff comes just as one of our healers becomes unavailable meaning I'll probably end up healing most of the time..

    False, You can't say it will have " No impact whatsoever" Because more damage is more damage, It doesn't matter if it's not the main source of dmg but more is better, I've had some butt squeezingly close fights lol and a few extra deeps could've turned the tide^_^

    That buff is live, SW:P now tick for more dmg than VT. I like the idea of sw being our first to cast spell, while VT used primarily for mana ( when multidotting 4-5 targets)

    For me the 25% buff for SW:P just went live following the rolling restarts, but has not been reflected in the tooltip. Can anyone else confirm?

    GOD damn, just stfu already. Its people like you that bitch if they do and bitch if they dont. If you are saying that because of one buff, then you are an idiot. PLease, for the love of god, unsub, will be better with out ppl like you in game.

    BTW you just look stupid to the rest of us when ppl say stupid shit like that.

    OT: It was needed - multi target dot fights, not just the mind seer spam ones - we were falling behind quite a bit.

    can someone confirm if the buff is live?

    So im guessing the 25% buff to SW : P was way too overpowered.........

    Priest: Shadow Word: Pain damage -25%.
    We want the dot specs to do well in multi-dot scenarios, but Affliction, Demonology and Shadow were doing too well on multi-dot fights and are still quite competitive on non-multi-dot fights. Balance druids, so far, are where we want them to be.

    Fucking pathetic...

    Well... it was nice while we had it. At least they didn't revert any of the other changes as well though.

    Blizzard giveth and Blizzard taketh.

    Wouldn't have been an issue if this whole tier wasn't an AoE zergfest. What's that 25 raid, just zerg stuff down? What's that some bosses had 10 raid HP in 25 raid? What's that we messed up on tier token drops? What's that we screwed the pooch on this raid tier?

    Blizzard buffs and nerfs classes like they are some crack-head coming off a bad trip looking for their next fix. There is no logic, reason or rhyme as to what they do these days.

    I knew it =)

    Well, to be fair, for a hybrid class, during the first week we certainly were doing really well on multi-doting fights, so a nerf shouldn't be too surprising. Wondering if this nerf is just to revert our buffed SWP to its original state, or it's applied to the buffed SWP, making it a -7% to original SWP damage (1.25 * 0.75 = 0.93).

    Well except for talent change we still have ONE change that wasn't reverted yeah we're sucesssfully the most abandonned class this tier !

    even sadder 0.75 * 1.25 = 93.75%, meaning our SW:P was NERFED compared to 5.1, I don't get why would they buff it if it was to nerf it the week after release.

    The GC giveth and the GC taketh away. Guess we shouldn't have padded so hard last week; it's kind of silly to base buffs/nerfs on the first week where people pad just because they can afford to for normals.
