thing is I have PvE in mind aswell. without it bear shamans will be no fun to play, so its hard to balance.
everybody agrees that BS is the most balanced class in the game in PvP, and this has been with this blunt live since t3 crafts were introduced years ago.
if they nerf it, it’ll be a small hit in PvP (bit sad), but massive in PvE (very sad), that’s all Im saying. instead just nerf conqs and problem solved IMO!
difference between me and spreadicus is I had it since 2010, he got it couple weeks back. I’ve seen my share of what it can do, his views on the game not exactly “true” (like that time he said Stone Hide on bear was useless), as you can see his post is not very nuanced. 3k hits are extremely rare in pvp, you have to use your empowered renewal boost to get such a number (or get buffs from a barb), which normally you don’t. I don’t see an issue in critting 2k on clothies. Polearm may have been hit for 2k on his guard, but thats fully debuffed or in frenzy.
