“To be honest, we may revert the Rejuv nerf. This is not 100% finalized yet, so please do not say we promised anything.
We definately wanted to nerf Rejuv. However we also wanted to fix Gift of the Earth Mother. That change wasn’t necessarily aimed at further nerfing druids, eventhough that was the outcome. It was aimed at not making haste such a wonky stat for Resto.
In short, we think the GotEM change both nerfed druids and fixed the haste scaling problem so the Rejuv duration nerf may not be necessary. Stay tuned.” ~Ghostcrawler
Ok…so this little tidbit here gives me some hope that it has been recognized that the recent changes we have seen on the PTR are maybe a bit too much. One without the other is a much easier pill to swallow than both together. Putting those 3 seconds back onto Rank 15 rejuv will certainly make the large change to GotEM less painful for us.
That leaves the question of is the change to GotEM is a little too muc? Yes, it was a bit powerful, but it is also requiring us to about double our haste to get to where we were before the change, which does seem a little bit drastic. Of course, according to GC’s comments, it is intended to work as a nerf to rejuv, which means they don’t really *want* us back to where we were before without giving something up to get there.
The rationale part of me thinks that’s fair. The “zomg I like my class just how it is” part of me cringes a little bit, but can still see where they are coming from.
What do you think?
