Alright, I did a little clean-up of the original post since the Cataclysm class changes will come up tomorrow. One of final changes that had been missing was adding that (Enhancement) Shaman trigger Torment the Weak in raids with Earth Shock.
When updating the post however, all the item links went kaputt, not sure how valid item links are made now.
When someone with beta acces opens a new thread for Cataclysm mechanics, feel free to copy information from this post and thread for an easier start with a short mention or reference. I feel a bad already that it took me until now to add a little acknowledgement to this post for the countless contributions of named and nameless authors.
