If you don't already know that this nerf is completely justified, then you haven't spent much of any time raiding in the last month or so, or you just forgot to pay attention to how ridiculously OP you were compared to every other DPS class.
Or... you tried to raid affliction. Which would have been fairly amusing.
Anyway, I would say that 12% is completely justified. Should put us back to about the same level as other DPS. Cept maybe for mages... I have a feeling that they are going to be about as OP as we used to be.
Another thing you have to keep in mind is that things are always whacked out when they implement the new talents/systems for an expansion, because they are currently balancing the classes at 85 with a whole different gear level. In other words, "we" (as 80's), until cata, are not the target for balancing, and our damage relative to other classes may or may not reflect much of anything about the game at 85.
