Been spending a lot of time at the test dummy lately, after hearing people complain about sunfire being buggy. I think I have determined the problem.
It IS affected by haste, and therefore natures grace. What is happening is that when it morphs it is no longer affected by Genesis. My nonNG moonfire ticks 12 times, 14 times with NG. Sunfire nonNG only ticks 8 times, 10 times with NG. Not sure if this was intentional or merely a bug blizzard needs to fix.
Anyone else think this might be the problem? I haven't seen anything about it here
I'm pretty sure out damage got "fixed" today. According to my test IS damage was more-less halved (13% of total damage in 5 min test). The rest seems to be the same as it was before. Overall dps is still respectable, so nothing to be worried about.
I don't think Owlkin Frenzy has changed. I looked at a few ICC parses of top moonkins that had it (i did not last night) and they were getting 20-25 ish procs for the night, with uptimes around 6%. So 10% of 6% tiny still. But as aceofsween says, it's the only real damage filler, such as it is.
I am wondering if the dmg source that OF used to proc has changed.
I am not sure but OF seems to be proccing a lot more than usual.
I seemed to have gotten OF procs from LD's ice volley...
She volleyed during my log at 20:27:30 and I got a OF proc after.
I got about three OF procs from her ice volley during that fight.
My log says 16 total procs for the whole of the one LD fight but I am wondering if there is some sort of reporting error there.
I was also seeing an uptime of 18% from OF for the night of raiding.
Looking at logs before the patch I thought it would be uncommon for OF to proc at all during a fight as a lot of aoe type abilities didn't trigger it.
I don't recall OF proccing from LD's volleys before or am I recalling this wrong.
The main nerf besides the 50% IS that everyone has mentioned is 10% off of Moonfury for most spells. It's now 15% for all nukes and AoE's and the Moonfire DD. Basically, everything except for IS, the Moonfire DoT, and the spells it doesn't affect at all (Roots/Thorns). More here: http://elitistjerks.com/blogs/hamlet...tch_gotem.html
Thorns did go down, but not by much, this much I can confirm. Tooltip from a few days ago gave me 2074 per hit, now what I'm seeing is 1841, so a net loss of a little over 200 damage for my gear. I don't think it was that big of a deal, but it's definitely there.
Btw Hamlet, in blog about Moonfury... Does that mean most of our spells effectively are doing 10% reduced damage, and Insect Swarm and Moonfire are doing 25%?
