Response to 2.3

I really don't know what to say. Focus was obviously imbalanced and inconsistent in terms of proc design, so putting the normal hCD on it is fine I guess. But a complete removal of the Crystalforge bonus is simply retarded. I don't get it. Yes I know .25s is reflectively permanent 224 spell haste on HL, but retroactively changing a bonus that players actually spend weeks if not months of consideration and DKP-earning on...? In case you do not know what I'm talking about:

2.3 ptr patch oct 10:
(2) Set: Each time you cast a Judgement, your party members gain 50 mana.
(4) Set: Your critical heals from Flash of Light and Holy Light reduces the cast time of your next Holy Light spell by 0.50 sec for 10 sec. This effect cannot occur more than once per minute.

I really don't know how to deal with it just yet. I might just cut myself or something. But anyway this means I have to re-plan my gear which will take a insurmountable amount of time. Anyhow let me introduce WoWEquip - it's quite useful and very functional but still some items are missing. Also not completed yet (0.8beta). Essentially you can track all your stats from profiles gear, except you have to do some manual calculations atm (talent unsupported)

Oh also I read Nessaj's article on Healing Tips on Nihilum's new site. It's quite informal but nevertheless sums up the main issues a healer has to deal with in raids. He didn't really talk about specialist healers - spell haste build, high crit, combined healing technique etc. Basically no one has done extensive research into topics like that (or at least no one has published relating articles), either way this was why I wanted to try the max spell haste build but it's pretty fkin dead now -.-
