5.0.5 Hotfixes

by on Sep.17, 2012, under Mists of Pandaria

The following hotfix was applied which affects Moonkin. I am not sure if this was a specific 5.0.5 bug because I have noticed for quite awhile (before 5.0.5) that you can no longer stack a Shooting Stars starsurge immediately following a starfire departing an eclipse for the bonus eclipsed nuke. I guess since they now fixed the eclipse lag entering an eclipse, it was only fair.

Eclipse should no longer provide bonus damage after it fades.

    You can still queued an instant SS following the final nuke of an Eclipse (as we used to cheese an extra eclipsed cast in Cata) but for a long time now (pretty much from Fae Empowerment / New Euphoria) it hasn’t benefited from eclipse; in fact they over-corrected a bit in that the final eclipse nuke wasn’t benefitting itself for a while until they fixed that too.

    I forgot to say what the actual hotfix did – sometimes when you hit CA at 0 energy following a lunar it doubled dipped (as in SF buffed by both lunar and CA). It was buggy as to when it’d occur (sometimes at 0 energy, sometimes at 20 lunar, sometimes never).

    Question: If SS procs during the cast of the last Wrath that would end a Solar Eclipse, will it be a substantial DPS gain to interrupt the cast to benefit from an eclipsed SS instead? Seeing how pitiful Wrath damage is, I can see the answer being ‘yes’, which would make moonkin rotation even clunkier than it already feels -in my view.

    Additionally, in live right now I find that if I want to queue a SS right after a Wrath, a number of times it just will not go off. Anyone else seen this?

    Thanks for the feedback.
