You could at least compensate for the mana cost increase of PW:S by allowing bubbles to critically absorb.

Nice Shaman changes, for sure. They definitely needed a throughput buff.

This probably won't be popular, but I think the mana cost increase on Holy Light was a little stiff. The old holy light, pre 4.06 was close to mana neutral, but the new one effectively doubles the mana drain (cast time x cost - regen) of holy light.

Hope there is a similar sticky about dps/tank stuff. :)

But in the healer department, very very glad to see the lack of druid/shaman external cooldowns has finally made some kind of dent. Looking forward to see what you dream up. Barkskin castable on others is a pretty frequent suggestion on the Druid side. Personally, I think something could be done with Nature's Swiftness, since the new healing model of fast/medium/slow, instant doesn't do much more than let you drop your slow spell quickly once every 2-3 mins.

We anticipate having these in relatively soon (possibly as soon as sometime today). We'll do our best to let you know once they're in and we'll be updating the notes on the Hotfix thread as well.


I am beyond thrilled with this change and I'm so relieved it can be hotfixed in rather than waiting for a patch.

Thank you so much devs for this boost, it's been sorely needed.

Neth, are these Shaman/Druid Healing CD's going to be coming next tier (a.k.a. 4.1) or is this something you might do with a major patch (like 4.0.6)?

I ask because our team has a resto shammy and druid, so that would be awesome. :)

And I was just getting back the feeling of WoTLK with using bubbles so much...this'll put me back to where i need to be.

/slap wrist Bad priest!

Good changes. I'm somewhat worried that people will get around the mana cost increase by feeding disco priests more tides/innervates, but I suppose the hps of shield spam isn't quite high enough to justify that sort of technique.

Absolutely awesome, here is some feedback if you really want it. That is great! You are looking at cd's for resto, please don't forget to look at the defensive ones too-

P.S. If you get around to it, please look at ele.

the problem with PW:S is blanket shielding. So now, you're hurting 1-3 shields (for pvp) to fix raid members doing 10 plus? Why don't you figure out a way to hurt the abusers...not the users.

Arcane Blast style scaling seems reasonable.
The Grace stack refund seems reasonable.

What you are doing isn't reasonable.

You really do love us neth!

If you think the PW:Shield use by disc priests is a matter of "compelling playstyle", why do I not see a not about them being compensated elsewhere? The addition of further nerfs to an already underrepresented spec in Cataclysm PvE is baffling.

Any ETA on these hotfixes coming in? I'm pretty pumped.

So holy pallies dropping 60k+ Healing bombs isn't OP? Holy pallies healing three targets every time they cast one spell isn't OP?

It's still a small percentage chance. It would not be game breaking, especially since they're raising the mana cost to a ridiculous amount. All other heals can crit. Why not our bubble?
