When did the nerf to enveloping mists happen?

Ok, so was reading through the patch notes while waiting for the download to complete and stumbled across the following:

The healing provided by Enveloping Mists has been reduced by 32%

Seriously? Monk tank healing is so godly that our one good st heal needed a 32% nerf?

Also, still no mention in the patch notes of any change to ascension.

Considering Monks have no "small heal low mana" heal we don't need this much nerf reduction -.- our soothing mist allready costs 3k mana per tick, lasting for 7 seconds. 21k mana for one channeld heal? No thanks.

The ascension change isn't in the patch notes, but I'm pretty sure it will be there, since it was in the PTR client all the way up until release, as far as I know. Its not like the patch notes get pulled from the game data, whoever wrote the notes probably overlooked it.

As for soothing mists, it got significant buffs (mana cost reduction, increased chi generation) so that it serves better as a filler/small heal.

Where did you see this change? I can't find it in the 5.1 patch notes.

Open the launcher, click the patch notes button (or read as patch is downloading), scroll down to classes / monk, it is between Stance of fierce tiger movement increase and healing provided by healing sphere base spell increased by 20%

What? >.> I AM CONVINCED! Somewhere, a sneaky dev is currently laughing all the way to the bank that they've managed to give y'all a semi-pointless set bonus.

Actually, was Enveloping Mists really an issue? o_O

It's a nerf for Tsulong and normal Will, I guess? It's not like it was a spell we used very often, since Tank healing was already a monk's weakest healing role. The well thought out nerf to Renewing Mist is actually a bigger detriment, but is actually appropriate to bring our raid healing in line.

I think some stupid developer saw the 50% bonus to haste from items and said 'oh crap, we need to drop Enveloping Mists to compensate,' since you know... +50% haste from items is clearly a 50% increase in Enveloping Mists output (it's not). Then they checked this in at the last minute without getting it reviewed by anyone who understands math.

Our set bonuses completely suck anyway...

I wouldn't be surprised if it's a bug related to them dropping it to level 16 from 34 when we get it. They probably broke the scaling on it.

If they put it in the patch notes, I doubt it's a bug...

I'm going to go out on a limb and say this might be a PvP related nerf.

There was no way my guild would have me on tank heals when we have a Holy Paladin for that role. I can't think of any situation other than PvP....or 5 man dungeons where EM would play a significant part of monk healing.
