We’ll source wowhead this time. I’ve included the Druid notes and others that will be important. (See my previous post for my thoughts on the original changes. In brief, the bleed nerfs and Shred/Mangle buffs should roughly balance out.)

Druid

Professions

  • A socket has been added to all crafted epic armor pieces that did not already have one.
  • Alchemy

  • Engineering

    • Synapse Springs now increase Agility, Strength, or Intellect (whichever is highest for the character).
  • Enchanting (from mmo-c since they’re missing from the official patch notes)
  • Jewelcrafting

    • Meta gems with the Chaotic and Relentless prefixes now have a requirement of 3 red gems.
    • New meta gems have been added: Agile Shadowspirit Diamond (Agility/3% critical damage), Reverberating Shadowspirit Diamond (Strength/3% critical damage), and Burning Shadowspirit Diamond (Intellect/3% critical damage). These new recipes are unbound and can drop from any Cataclysm creature. The new meta gems have a requirement of 3 red gems equipped.

Items

  • Left Eye of Rajh: Chance of triggering increased. (30% on crit to 50% on crit.)

For ferals, there’s some PvP nerfs across the board (though the cc duration change is global), but the biggest nerf is global; the Glyph of Entangling Roots no longer making it instant. Oh well. We didn’t root much anyway, but it makes control as a resto/balance druid much more difficult, I’d imagine. Resto gets a significant throughput buff, which is helpful, but I was hoping for a mitigation cooldown of some kind.

Gear-wise, all of the crafted gear is going to sprout a socket, which will significantly improve its value (especially the LW chest, which is pretty underwhelming currently). I’ve already discussed the new metas, which are very nice, and the Left Eye trinket gets a quiet buff which will help solidify it as the second-best heroic 5-man trinket, behind Tia’s. Profession-wise, LW’s dominance is over, and all non-LW’s should grab the bracer enchant as soon as it’s economically viable to do so. Engineering also becomes much less bad now; Synapse Springs is equal to 96 static agility (vs. +50 str, current BiS enchant) which will provide a boost very close to the +80 agi from other professions. (I’ll let someone else work out the actual math.)


On a side note, apparently I got a WoL ranked DPS spot on Halfus last night. #198! Woo! Blink and it’ll be gone! (And I died about 15s before the boss did. Yay for Furious Howl stun in a fireball barrage; Double yay for frantically spamming SI and it not working during Howl.) Who needs epics? :P (Yes, still working on the raid gear list, hopefully I’ll finish it before the patch changes all the valuations.) I’d also like to work up a feral PvP guide (more BG focused then arena focused); if anyone has any good resources that I can “borrow” from, please let me know.

  10. I have noticed that car insurance providers know the vehicles which are vulnerable to accidents along with risks. In addition they know what style of cars are prone to higher risk as well as higher risk they’ve got the higher the actual premium price. Understanding the straightforward basics with car insurance will help you choose the right sort of insurance policy that should take care of the needs you have in case you become involved in any accident. Thank you sharing your ideas with your blog.

  14. Thank you for sharing these wonderful blogposts. In addition, the right travel as well as medical insurance approach can often ease those fears that come with travelling abroad. Some sort of medical emergency can quickly become too expensive and that’s sure to quickly slam a financial impediment on the family finances. Putting in place the great travel insurance offer prior to setting off is worth the time and effort. Cheers

  17. Chicago Bears: WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring), WR Eddie Royal (calf), RB Ka’Deem Carey (hamstring), LB Leonard Floyd (calf), LB Jerrell Freeman (wrist), G Kyle Long (shoulder), What is the record for players being labeled questionable but not actually missing a game? Jeffery might attempt to break it.

  18. Obviously, the right to occupy a team-high 21.6 shots of Michael Owen, but failed to hit as James scores, this let a person feel, Owen has become a “cancer” of the knight.But many fans also feel,
