Close, but no cigar!

So... we downed Kel'thuzad last night, but he dropped absolutely nothing for me. Zero, zip, nada. On the bright side, at least now we all know the fight and are planning on taking him down weekly. 

Now to the important stuff...

Blizzard has announced that in patch 3.1.0, they will nerf mana regen across the board. For paladins, they will change the healing penalty on Divine Plea up to 50%. For the most part, I'm not really that concerned by this, mostly because it will not affect 25 man raids too much if there is only one paladin. We may start to see things going back to TBC days when we really watched the overheals caused by Holy Light. In 10 man raids, though, this might become an issue, especially on longer boss fights, like Gothik or the Four Horsemen.  I'm not sure how this will affect the value of mp5 on our gear, but I've started collecting some pieces already. This is, of course, going to affect our haste rating, as it is in direct competition with mp5 on most of our gear. There is a silver lining to this cloud, however, because Blizz is giving more classes the replenishment buff, so we no longer have to think about bringing along just a shadow priest or ret paladin.

  1. Just found this site yesterday, I like it, please keep up the good work. Since WoTLK came out there are not many Healadins anymore. I'm a former Healadin who switched to Enhancement Shaman, but miss healing and may Paladin.
