I've updated the OP here to reflect the changes we're testing on the current PTR.Added to the notes above:Essences
Résonance de la veine du monde Classes
- Force vitale condensée
Pointe d’azérite cast time increased to 2.5 seconds (was 2.0 seconds).
Developers' notes: The cast time increase was primarily intended to resolve a bug where the Guardian would clip his own casts when you gained enough haste to bring the cast below a GCD. However, this particular essence, which is largely passive, was the premier choice for most specializations in both single and multi-target situations. So, in addition to the cast time increase, we felt it was necessary to reduce the damage increase the player receives from the essence.
Cocon de vie now absorbs for 60% of the caster's maximum health (was 1100% of the caster's spellpower).
Developers' note: This ability had gotten weaker compared to player health pools since the start of the expansion, and this will help it better maintain its value.
healing increased by 10%. Regain
healing increased by 12%. Brume de rénovation
healing increased by 15% and now costs 2.5% of mana (was 2.8%). Vivifier
healing increased by 6%. Prêtre
Fixed a bug preventing Contrition healing from being correctly affected by Mastery.
- Contrition base healing reduced by 25%.
Developers' notes: In the aggregate, Contrition is gaining value, due to the increase to Pénitence healing, reduction to Expiation healing, and the Mastery bugfix.
