Did quickening just get nerfed during that maintenance period or is it just me?

Rofl. It didn't get nerfed. It got fixed. The way it worked with Sweeping Wind was a bug. It's been fixed.

It may have been a bug, but it was a bug that allowed one of the two broken melee classes to actually function in the ultra over tuned inferno.

No argument. But think about it. Without this, there would be about 2% of the monks in Inferno Act 2 that there are now. IF you were involved in the Beta, then you probably know that people not being able to make it past Act 2 is 'working as intended' as far as Blizzard is concerned....

What I'm afraid of is that because of this, Blizz won't make class changes that are probably needed for 6 months instead of 6 weeks... I've played WoW for too long not to know how they work...

On the brighter side, it looks like Wizzies got kicked in the teeth, too.

What did it even do before? (I'm only lvl 40, so don't have Quickening yet)

It really got nerfed? Glad I switched to another build already while in Inferno but it did get me to Level 60 pretty quick.

Wow I didn't even realize it worked like that, talk about broken. Glad they fixed it. (P.S. I play a Monk)

Better to get bugs like that ironed out instead of trying to balance the game around them.

I don't know, I've used it, and my spirit gen is only slightly less.

I can't pull in a godly amount of mobs and cyclone/MoH:BoP them to death, but I still notice huge spirit generation going on.

I don't think it's nerfed! I get as much spirit regen as I did yesterday with Quickening and SW

It now only procs from single target crits, and no longer from AoE. Before it was proccing from your Sweeping Wind and Mystic Ally (Air).

The way of the hundred fists one (15% chance for 15 spirit) is a very good substitute, check it out.

I tried quickening yesterday for the first time and it's crap. If you have 2 monsters near you, you instantly die, even if you spam the shield like crazy. They hit for 30k, that shield is nothing, it goes right through it into your health just like that.

It's cool to see spirit being full all the time but that's it...

They just had to nerf monks as if they don't suck enough compared to dh or wizard in inferno.
