Just a quick note to give everyone something to chew on while waiting for the servers…
Yawning is reporting that they did a stealth buff on some of our abilities’ coefficients on the PTR, which everyone missed. (Amazingly, when you actually test stuff, you find out sometimes the dataminers miss things. Shock! Horror!) Changes below:
- Rake (Direct): 176 + AP * 0.015 (Was AP * 0.01)
- Rake (DoT): 358 + AP * 0.09 (Was AP * 0.06)
- Rip (DoT): (36 + 93 * nrCPs) + AP * 0.015 * nrCPs (Was AP * 0.01 * nrCPs)
- Ferocious Bite: 132 + 319 * nrCPs + AP * 0.077 * nrCPs, 286 + 319 * nrCPs + AP * 0.077 * nrCPs (Was 120 + 290 * nrCPs + AP * 0.07 * nrCPs, 260 + 290 * nrCPs + AP * 0.07 * nrCPs)
By my napkin math, that looks to be a 50% buff to the scaling coefficient on Rip and Rake, and a 10% buff to the scaling coefficient on FB. That (this is the napkin part) would be about a 10% buff to our bleeds (less for FB) which should push our overall DPS up 5% or so.
The changes are incorporated in the latest version of Mew…go get it if you haven’t already. (Yawning also fixed the bug where the Strength of Earth/Horn of Winter/Battle Shout buff was incredibly OP…blame Wowhead, they have it wrong too.)
