From the latest PTR patchnotes:
- Swipe (Cat) damage has been doubled.
- Berserk is no longer on the global cooldown.
Our AOE needed a buff, but this is probably too much and is going to get reeled back in. If my mental Swipe DPE is correct, doubling its damage would only put it 10-20% behind Shred, and make it the automatic go-to for fights with multiple targets. (well, 3+ for certain, would have to figure up rolling dots on 2.) We’d go from worst to first on H Maloriak, that’s for sure. Someone chime in and tell me I’m seeing things.
Oh, and the Berserk change is nice for cats but very nice for bears.
(Back to planning IA policy. Yay for real work, boo for real work.)
