Rain Dance change

Post by Vek » January 9th, 2014, 1:32 am

I have not been following patch notes etc as much as I used to, but yesterday I checked the Rain Dance buff by accident and noticed that it was changed since last time I checked. Hit is still +50% but crit was "only" +25%. I really don't mind it at all, it is still a powerful heal/buff, I just never noticed it before. I'm probably just out of the loop, going about my way without checking this stuff. :)

Hrm, definitely a stealth nerf to the ability. The journal tooltip still says 50% crit for me on EU side

But once in pet battle and using the pet, the Rain Dance aura, upon use, says increases hit with 50% and critical strike with 25%.

Yeah, not really suprised by the nerf. You could make some truly ginormously monstrous crits with it up and casting Steam Vent. Especially if the target was Elemental, you could potentially 1shot them!

This stealth change wasn't needed nearly as much as a fix to the Elemental/Sandstorm bug. So glad to see them paying attention to things that aren't broken...

Stealth changes are annoying. It's not a big deal really but notice is nice.

This change was made about 3 days after 5.4 went live.

It's been there for a long time.
