Redesign the Discipline Mastery

Just an oddity to consider: Discipline is "punished" for having shields that are too tough currently. If your shields are too powerful and go unpopped, you receive no mana from rapture.

An example from live; during LK's first phase many discipline priests remove their main hand item to ensure that their PW:S is not so powerful that infest doesn't pop it. Granted, they do this to allow multiple bubbles to pop simultaneously and gain a much larger rapture tick at once, but down the road this could be an issue.
There's an internal cooldown on Rapture now. Multiple bubbles popping at once returns the same as a single bubble popping.

There are still logs from folks who are seeing multiple returns from rapture, so long as the bubbles pop simultaneously.

Multi-Rapture: has been tested to still work. Looks very much overpowered now in combination with the reduced cooldown of 6s.
If you reforge to mastery as suggested, depending on gear Infest may no longer break your shields at the Lich King. You can work around this by changing you flask (at the cost of re-flasking), turning off Inner Fire, or even switching out your weapon, ideally a combination of the above with the minimum impact. Obviously, this only makes sense if you do have mana problems without multiple rapture procs.


The post was last updated on November 13th, 2010, and I saw it as late as last week. I have not tested it since 4.0.3, but I doubt it has changed.

Confirmed last evening. Multiple bubbles popping in the same frame will all return mana.

Was that on live or in beta?

Live.

Threw some shields on targets that couldn't seem to avoid frost bombs. 2 popped simultaneously, 2 hits of rapture.

The whole mastery stat should be removed across the board for all classes.


This would be a huge nerf to Frost Mage PvE and PvP damage, you guys are crazy, stack something else. Let us Frost Mages stack enough mastery to kill in a Deep Freeze.

I don't see them doing this, they've spent considerable design time on mastery.

However some masteries are far better than others and that doesn't seem right to me.

I also think they should just get rid of Mastery.

So I propose the mastery be changed to " Increases the amount absorbed by your absorption effects by 10% and increases all healing done to targets affected by weakened soul by 10%, +1.25% per point mastery".


Thats really nice!
