Along came the nerf bat


Fire Resistance Totem now increases fire resistance by 130 (Up from 70) and lasts 5 minutes. (Up from 2 minutes)


Totem of Wrath now lasts 5 minutes. (Up from 2 minutes)


Maelstrom Weapon proc chance changed from 20/40/60/80/100% on critical hit to 3/6/9/12/15% when you deal damage with a melee weapon. Now affects Chain Heal as well.
Dual Wield Specialization now Increases your chance to hit while dual wielding by an additional 1/2/3%. (Down from 2/4/6%)
Stormstrike doesn't affect Fire or Frost damage anymore.
Unleashed Rage now increases both melee and ranged attack power and works within 45 yards. (Old - Affected only melee AP, 20 yards)
Flurry now increases your attack speed by 5/10/15/20/25% (Down from 10/15/20/25/30%) for your next 3 swings after dealing a critical strike.


Ancestral Awakening now affects Riptide as well
Improved Water Shield now affects Riptide as well

Raid Buffed I'm running 40% crit so Malestrom is going to proc 15% vs 40% That is a Giant nerf.
Dual Weild Spec is cut in half. In addition to the removal of Nautures guidance this cuts our hit % from 9% to 3% Fricking ridiculous!

Removing Frost and Fire from Stormstike means we arent going to be using the debuffs. Another huge nerf.

A 5% loss in Flurry speed as well also a large dps loss.

Wow. Thanks a lot. You remove our utlity by giving many of our buffs to other classes. Now you nerf our DPS the hell as well. This really hurts.
