Wait, 4.1 did what?

If you’re like me, you looked at the patch notes and noted the tweaks and didn’t really pay a whole lot of attention to it.  I mean, I raided on Wednesday and Thursday and did more DPS than I had been and didn’t think too much of it*…

…and then someone said “Hey Amber, did you know were were supposed to DPS in unholy presence now?”

Cue me going “What?”

So if, like me, you only JUST optimized your gear a week ago and hadn’t really thought about having to DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN, and TOTALLY MISSED THIS SHIT, here are the chages to DW frosty goodness as spewed forth by the people who like doing math more than I do:

  • No more Blood Strike! (nooo now my bars are uneven!)
  • DPS in Unholy Presence (wat)
  • Stat priority changed to hit > expertise > haste > mastery > crit

Haste over mastry?!?!?

Unholy presence?!?!?!

Um, okay, if you say so!

And yes, I realize I’m late to the party. Derp derp…

*The change to rocket boots (boosts, whatever) also went mostly unobserved and ended up killing me when I tried to rocket back from a wipe.  Thanks, Blizz.  I was staring at my screen trying to figure out why they were on CD but I hadn’t blown up or anything, and then I died.  From a fuel leak.  Awesome.
