RE: Shaman AoE
All Shaman have access to Magma totem, Ele Shaman had Earthquake. The reason that there was the damage reduction to Earthquake is because Fire Nova was redesigned so that the explosion from it originates from any target that has Flame Shock on it. So basically, a Shaman would have Flame Shock already on a target or two then use Earthquake then use Fire Nova as Earthquake is going.
OMG how did no one say “Return of the BEAR overlords to tanking” as the think they most look forward to? (altho admittedly I expect nerfs to soon follow – after all didn’t they say bear dps was too high and now they’re increasing it again… hmmm)
Rogue recuperate wasn’t merged; if you aren’t specced into improved recuperate, then it is buffed. If you are specced 2/2, then the net effect is the same (no buff or nerf).
“Merged” should read “nerfed.” stupid iPhone auto-correct.
