I am silently cursing –
well I was.
Now I’m gonna get a little vocal
Given the nerfing apparently that things like the Frozen Shadoweave set, and the + Shadow Damge items seem to be getting Nerfed ( thankyou I’d Rather Be WoWing )
Which is going to kill 5 Pieces of my gear with their +shadow Damage bonus
FOR WHICH I PASSED ON SO MUCH CRAP TO KEEP
It was rubbed in my face once upon a time by a nastily said comment made by the GM of my old guild once when he was drunk and tired. I said as a one off comment.. with no malice – in a silly jokingly manner said “I haven’t had any upgrades in months.. ” . ( yes I know that can come across as a Poor me but hear me out)
He says “You passed on all the upgrades.. ”
and I’m like.. Huh? Why would I do that? – I passed because they were NOT upgrades, and other people could put them to better use, it was true. I wasn’t going to be wearing them.
well guess what – NOW THEY ARE UPGRADES.
I checked the new Shadowpriest.com gear listing as so kindly linked by I’d Rather be wowing, and my painstakingly collected pieces of + Shadow Damage are either missing, or re ranked lower.
and then I screamed some more.. thats my Neck, cloak, Boots, shoulders, Chest,
and then I flicked through a couple of pages from the “Little book of calm”
It will only be till the expansion and I will be working my butt off getting even better gear.
Honor and arena points will be useless, there will be a new badge system,
Edit: I thought of something else.. if this whole spellpower buiness gets rid of all the + any particular singular spell stat on any item – that means now that Fire mages could use shadoweave, and they wouldnt need to change tailoring speciality if they change specs. AND that should also mean then that the +spellpower will then be effective for all classes and ALL spells.. and awe crap – they are taking away my only Arcane spell – Starshards. But those other classes that use more then one tree of spells its gonna be awesome – theoretically.
