    Default Shaman Damage

    After 3.7 launch, I'm parsing 100k on a dummy with a mostly T2 Cleric with some T3 and T1 sprinkled in. Expert trinket and relic T2 hammer/epic T2 wand.

    Is this intended? I know the damage won't scale as well because of the crit buffs in raid, but I mean 100k in that gear?

    What's the deal? Here to stay? or soon to be fixed?

    So you're saying your DPS went up?
    Massive Blow got a buff, but Punishing Strike and indirectly (and quite annoyingly) Frozen Wrath were nerfed.
    Will be fun when I can finally check out the changes.

    Not just went up. Went up substantially. I think I was parsing like 83-85k before, something like that. So straight up 15% buff. Also, from my calculations, as long as Spell Crit scales linearly, about 160 Spell Crit is worth a 1% bump to Massive Blow. So lots of added scalability there with main stat as well as things like synergy crystal, etc.

    Yeah this is awesome, I'm really loving the changes. Finally SC is worth something! :D Now I know why MB got a 15% damage reduction in PvP.

    I mean, It's about time Shaman catches some OP love I guess, given that it gets the shaft in the utility department. But this is pretty crazy. This whole class balance this is seriously out of whack. You have a ranged calling (Maelstrom) beating the living hell out of everything, then you have Shadeborn hybrids in 2nd, now you have Shaman dusting the floors with all kinds of melee specs on a dummy at least (I'll try in a raid tonight if I can and report back). You have marksman and Pyro catching buffs to put them in better spots, and you have 2 new changes with Druid and Elementalist that are supposedly pretty lackluster.

    Rift has 55 souls, so it's gotta be tough to maintain balance. But wow, the undershooting and overshooting are insane.

    Things are crazy man. Crazy.

    Shadeborn did 150k ST, Maelstrom the same, clerics were behind for whole t2 and t3. Do you seriously have to QQ post about something fully irrelevant? Shaman with the 0 utility isnt a pvp spec, and CoA is cleared by anyone decent already, let us have fun maybe?

    I'm pretty sure I once saw a shaman in pvp...... I wish I had screenshotted that madness.

    Well, we got some love at last. That's the way I see it. I've been waiting for this %10-15 for a long time. Rogues were pretty annoying(not just rogues)! You know what I mean=)
    And this is not the place maybe but I don't use the forum much so I'm gonna say it here. Can you please work on druid and give us a guide maybe? I don't have time to try and create a way to play it myself this time=( So it would be really nice=) And ofc, thank you for your continued work dude.Seriously! always appreciated!

    I'm in the minority but I don't like so much dps coming from just one ability, massive blow. It's like 30-40% of my parses not including brutalize which is another ~10%

    But yes, it hits super hard now.

    Chamberdown,
    If you got look at the Druid PTS change thread, there were some questions about why the big uptick in damage. Not sure there was ever much of a response.

    I think most just assumed this was due to Maelforge/Shadeborn.

    Where do mages in Harb stand in comparison to Shammy now after the changes?
