Seems some stealth buffs (and by stealth, I mean B-2 Bomber stealth…quiet and massive) hit last night. Dummy Recount log below; yes, my rotation is not the greatest yet; yes, I haven’t regemmed or anything.  Napkin math says it’s a 50% buff to yellow damage (not sure about FB, don’t know how much energy I did it with). Overall, that’s looking like a 30%-35% buff, which should put us back to where we were pre-4.0.1, or even a little more. Obviously, somebody’ll have to do some raid testing. Yowza.

Stats for both sessions:
Strength: 110
Agility: 1885
WDPS: 294.8
AP: 619
Haste: 919
Crit: 1545
Hit: 173
Exp: 92

EDIT: Yawning’s rederived (some of) the formulas. (He hasn’t slept, apparently. Dude, seriously, go to bed.)
Mangle: (Weapon Dmg) * 3.6 + 1017
Shred: (Weapon Dmg) * 3.5 + 1036
Rake Direct: 272 + 0.023 * AP
Rake DoT: 555 + 0.14 * AP (Per tick)
Rip DoT: 57 + 144 * nrCPs + AP * 0.023 * nrCPs (Per tick)

(For reference, here’s some of the old 4.0.1 and oldold (PTR) coefficients…I don’t have Mangle/Shred’s handy right now.)
* 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)

  1. Yay! And Gah! I’ve been working on tweaking my numbers and gear for the past two days, just in a theoretical standpoint. Hmm. Actually, if it’s just a co-efficient change, the relative stat values shouldn’t change that much. Except for maybe hit. Hmmm. ~boots up Mew again~

    • Brace for nerf.

      Right now I’m at almost 11k self-buffed on a dummy. Compared to 7.3k before the patch. It won’t last.

      I regemmed for hit/exp cap and reforged as much as possible into mastery. I gemmed yellow agi/haste, but full agi is probably better even in +6 agi socket bonus pieces. Actually, I’m positive that agi/crit is better than agi/haste, since more than 50% of my DPS comes from bleeds, and they don’t profit from haste.

      • All DoTs (incl bleeds) benefit from haste now. You squeeze in more ticks for the duration of the bleed. Ofc this means that haste is more valuable if a small bit more gives you another tick than if it just did (and you need a boatload for the next tick to get included.

      • @Hanak Was that changed in the damage buff overnight? Because last I knew, physical dots did not benefit from haste. It would be double-dipping with both our energy regen and our dots to benefit from haste.

      • No, bleeds still do not scale from haste. They just hit harder. :)

  2. Looks like nice and welcome buffs putting us back up there again. Lets hope it lasts :-)

  3. Oh hells yeah. I’m gonna be doing the weekly tonight and we shall see how I pwn faces. Or butts, since we’re supposed to stand behind the boss and all. I shall give him kitteh wedgies!
