New EF Hotfix
09/23/2013 07:04 PMPosted by HalsharI would imagine that given the 4p prot bonus, it should still be superior for prot due to the opportunity cost removal.
I'm leaning towards this, too; without 4pT16, EF and SS should be quite even.
Because it was more broken than sacred shield ever was when used by tanks.
well, back to the 30% nerfed SS it is...
what shall we break next? selfless healer? but that already sucks for prot. incoming "selfless healer requires 10 judgements to proc" hotfix.
I think I'm just a fan of the mechanic now more than anything. It feels like a half way point between Sacred Shield and Selfless Healer, with it's own strengths and weaknesses. I do enjoy having it tick constantly on myself and my partner. It might not have the BOOM feeling a 3 stacked Selfless Healer crit on your partner would, and it may cost holy power, but it provides a massive amount of healing over the course of an arena match and the sustained survivability is very noticeable.
They really need to start balancing us separately. Ret hasn't been nerfed this entire expansion, but we eat blanket nerfs and nerfs intended for others specs constantly. It's like Ret is jumping in front of the nerf bat intentionally.
Stupidity like this (the obvious lack of proper internal testing) just makes me enraged.
Thankfully I did my 30 waves in the PG before this. Can't see myself getting back there again now.
Guess I'll just back to SS, just because it makes the rotation less complicated.
Me too, EF hot was basically the only thing keeping us alive in there. Even then it still required some sketchy tanking by the AI to get through it.
