Nerf Bat? What Nerf Bat?

I was reading WoW Insider today, and happened upon a bunch of posts. Didn’t read many of them, since the titles of those very posts spoke for themselves.

“8926 a test of faith for Holy priests”
“Shadow Priests beaten to death in the Wrath beta”
“Totem Talk: Curses, foiled again”
“Human racials revised again”
“Things don’t look pretty for PvP Hunters in 8926”

To say that 8296 was known for its nerfs to many classes would be a sheer understatement. Which is why I loved to see this on MMO-champion regarding the new beta build.

Unofficial changes:

which is quite surprising, considering the introduction of Mirror Image. I could only guess that there simply wasn’t enough time for the devs to observe the spell in action and make their adjustments. Expect more concrete evidence to be observed when more 80’s show up via pre-mades or self-mades, and we’ll see how it goes.

Regardless, it is frequently said that no news is good news. So if we’re to walk away with anything, it’s that with the inevitable tidal wave of QQ, it’s refreshing to see that the mages aren’t likely to be the ones not drowning in it.

But then again, I could be wrong.

  1. the damage numbers on Mirror Image seem like they’re going to be adjusted fairly, and I don’t really mind that. it’s much like the mana regen of the water elemental. adjusting the mana regen rate would be considered a “nerf” but in all honesty, it’s amazing enough to get the mana regen in the first place, on top of the underapreciated extended duration of the summon

  2. Yeah, Aurdon. I read those comments that you nicely compiled. I can’t help but feel that regardless of how the numbers turn out, the spell is here to stay, and that’s what ultimately matters.
