One quick Elemental Shaman change was made this week:
- 回响震击 (talent) can no longer duplicate the 温西尔盟约 ability 收割链. The value of the talent combined with that Covenant ability were too strong together, so the interaction has been disabled.
For Enhancement Shaman, several numerical changes have been made to their base abilities to emphasize some abilities that aren't performing as well as intended, and several adjustments have also been made to talents to help keep the value of talents on the same row much closer.Some time ago, we made a change to reduce the effectiveness of all 漩涡武器
spenders by 50%, and we made the 漩涡武器
buff increase the damage or healing of these abilities by 20% per stack of the buff. This reduction has been reduced from -50% to -35%, which should increase the value and priority of your 漩涡武器
spending abilities. Additionally, Healing Surge is no longer affected by this -35% value anymore, but still retains the increased healing effectiveness and reduced cast time if you use the ability with stacks of 漩涡武器
s has been a damage cooldown for 增强
for many years, but has been slowly pushed down to be less effective relative to your other abilities. In this build, we've:
- Increased the attack power scaling of the 野性狼魂 by 250%, to make it feel more impactful to use as a DPS cooldown.
Several talents have some number tweaks:
- Forceful Winds Windfury damage bonus per stack has been reduced from 50% to 35%.
- 霜刃打击 damage has been increased by 75%.
- 鞭笞烈焰 has had its debuff duration increased from 12 seconds to 20 seconds.
- 灼热之手 now also resets the cooldown of 熔岩猛击 when the talent activates.
- 元素冲击 has had its damage increased by 25% for 增强萨满祭司.
- 冰雹's bonus damage to 冰霜震击 has been reduced from 35% to 15%.
- 火焰新星's damage has been increased by 75%
The conduit 精粹提取
has been redesigned in this build. The previous version both increased the damage of 法夜输灵
and reduced the total time it took to channel the ability. This was increasing the burst damage of a channeled ability to a point where it was becoming difficult to counter effectively, so we changed it to instead reduce the cooldown of 法夜输灵
from 25 to 40 seconds, depending on the conduit rank.One final change made in today's build is that the 法夜
covenant ability 法夜输灵
should now generate 3 stacks of 漩涡武器
when you fully channel the ability, up from 1 stack. This should offset more of the loss of melee attacks made while channeling the ability and also give a nice guaranteed way to generate 漩涡武器
stacks when needed.
