5.0.5 - 8% dmg boost to Lightning Bolts

79 Orc Shaman
13350
Has anyone else noticed their LB damage got NERFED as of today? For this lvl 79 it was hitting for 10-11k on players noncrit even with the 40% passive resilience and now the actual tooltip shows it hitting for 6.7k and its hitting for 1-4k on players. Anyone know if they did a coefficient change to make it less powerful at low levels like they did for Holy Shock and Word Penance?

most every other class got a nerf! Proof Blizzard regularly overlooks the shaman forum by default...


WOW a whole 8%??? Really?? I feel so special now. PATHETIC!!! If your lightning bolt hits for 1k it will now hit for 1080?? WHOA thats OP!!! Let me know when lightning bolt hits half as hard as a frostbolt then I might be impressed with the buff.

lol shut up

TIL, 8% on a 1k spell looks less impressive than 8% on a 30k spell. (even though 8% is still 8%!)

What did you expect? A 40% boost??

Your shaman is only level 75. You have no input that is actually worth anything.

I dunno about percentages, but I have heard that it is a heavy movement raid. Hell I only ever ran one 5man while in beta, but I was impressed by the amount of forced movement involved.


Very good, very good. I have high hopes for Ele then.

EDIT: For reference, here's a 20% and 40% movement simcraft that I found on Totemspot.

The people you see complaining about Elemental's damage are the ones who only test out their class on Loltraxion, and have never even stepped foot into the beta raids. That, and also have extremely high potential to be screwing up their class mechanics regardless.

I cannot be clear enough about how much I hate Ultraxion/Patchwerk fights. Even on my pure DPS classes that can easily top the numbers on a standstill fight, I get so aggravated by the entire fight design. So boring!

Raiding should always be more than a target dummy with fireworks.

It really does make me happy to see that more and more people are listing Totemspot as a source now for all things shaman related.

Anytime you don't see Noxxic linked, you are already starting out ahead of the curve.

That's because Noxxic sucks.

Thus my point :P

I remember when I returned from my computer breaking in Cata, I asked some guildies if they knew off of the top of their heads what the stat priority was for a certain class. One of them linked me to Noxxic, and I was just like "oh don't worry I'll get check out the forums!"
