I know that once you hit the spell hit cap that you should be reforging towards Mastery and Hast. I was wondering if there was some sort of number I should be aiming towards with those two. Like when it would be appropriate to forge towards haste if I'm at a certain point with my mastery even if mastery's EP is higher then Haste.
Has anyone put a value on Mastery yet? Is it still way ahead of Crit/Haste or more inline now with the others. Just wondering if I should start picking up Mastery gear now over Crit/Haste gear(or even replacing gear without mastery on it with gear that has it).
Your analysis is pretty darn close to mine. 4.0.6 has applied a band-aid to us, and really drives away from the reasonably balanced approach we had to take with healing in 4.0.3.
Personally, I want to see Blizzard set the base mana cost of Rejuv somewhere closer to 21% (halfway between 4.0.3 & 4.0.6), and raise the WG cooldown back to 10 seconds, then apply some love to our direct heals; primarily Nourish & Regrowth. I wonder if Swiftmend couldn't use a bit of revamp as well.
There's also significant room for improvement in our talent tree.
I keep hoping to see these changes appear before they transition PTR to bugfix-only, but I'm really doubting it.
With the mastery changes would that put Buc-Zakai Choker over Gift of Nadun as BIS pre-hardmode? seems, that it would be. But Im just dipping my toe in here for confirmation. Im actually sitting on one right now.
I just had a few questions that I was looking for clarification on,
Seeing as raid bosses are not actually ever frozen, do we still lose the damage to frozen targets with the new patch?
Will this change the priority and put BF w/ FoF above DF w/ FoF?
When all armor spells become 0 mana, should we start with Molten and use it for high damage/burn phases and then switch to Mage to lock are mana in place? I have been using just Mage armor and have ended up finishing fights on the +side of 70% Mana.
Will fire jump way ahead with this next patch due to all of the mana decreases?
Was there a consensus on 2pts Fire Power vs 2pts Netherwing Presence? I can't see many of the build options discussed because they are on from the old wowarmory links. I thought NP beat out FP, but it was pretty close.
