Down Again…


It’s probably a good thing the servers are down for ‘urgent maintenance’ because I need some sleep. They’re supposed to be back up around 8am Eastern, but no guarantees.

Once again, I’m dirt poor. I burned some coin on the dual spec, picked up a few gear items and gems. Then went for a spin with the new talent spec and adjusted abilities.

Ow.

It feels like I was hit hard by the nerfbat. That or I’m missing something. While my normal attack swings are coming a little faster (more effect from haste), the damage seems lower for most of my abilities. Judgments with Martyr going are doing about 2000 damage on a crit – I used to do that without the crit. It does seem to proc more though. And then there is the fact I can use Exorcism on anything – that does another 2000 or so. Crusader Strike and Divine Storm seemed to do a little more damage.

It’s hard to tell where I am DPS-wise without fighting a raid mob where it will last more than a couple of seconds. Although, I do seem to need to push more buttons to make things dead. Pre-patch I wouldn’t get through my rotation before my target died. Now? I get through it and it is usually dead. Either way, the fights just aren’t long enough to get a good read.

Mana is a little trickier now. I don’t notice a big difference in Divine Plea. I think Spiritual Attunement was made a talent and pushed up the Prot tree but I’m not sure. That would mean no mana returned from heals.

Time to go get some addon updates.

  1. Not too bad so far. I actually break about 3700 DPS on the practice dummies. Some of the damage seems lower but I guess the frequency of it really adds up.

    Now… to remember how to be a prot tank. heh.
