Day 3 MoP Moonkin Round-Up..

by on Mar.24, 2012, under Mists of Pandaria

This is a bit early to post the round up, but I’ll be traveling this evening and may not get to post.

A few more details are coming out from beta.

Wowhead has an updated talent calculator available.  A few changes can be noted:

  • Incarnation now doubles eclipse energy in and out of an Eclipse, causing you to transition Eclipses much faster.
    • This should be a much larger DPS increase than extending an Eclipse like before.
  • Ursol’s Vortex now snares all targets within it’s range, and when they try to leave, they’re sucked back to the center.
    • It used to just suck them to the center, now they have a pretty nasty snare on top of it.  Much nicer for PVP.

Insect Swarm is missing from beta.  It’s theorized that it is an intentional removal and will either be re-tooled or removed completely.

Erdluf of ElitistJerks compares spell co-efficients of our spells in MoP versus Cataclysm:

Spell MoP Cata Ratio
Wr 1.109 0.879 1.26
MF 0.227 0.180 1.26
SF 1.553 1.23 1.26
SS 1.548 1.23 1.26
Hu 0.262 0.095 2.76
Sfl 0.117 0.247 0.47
WMD 0.349 0.603 0.58

Our direct nukes were increased by 26%, which may be to offset the loss of Insect Swarm.

  • However, we also lost 14% damage from talents.
    • 10% from Earth and Moon
    • 4% from Master Shapeshifter

It’s also interesting to note the 50% nerf to Starfall.  I’m willing to absorb that given how much more often Starfall will now be cast, and knowing that it will always be lined up with Lunar Eclipse.

Wild Mushrooms were also nerfed by 42%, however Hurricane/Arcane Storm saw a 176% increase, which is welcome, as it allows us to have viable AoE in both Lunar and Solar Eclipse.
