Downloading background fury

This morning, the background downloader popped up when I started WoW. It didn’t download anything, but it just sat there…waiting and watching. Does it mean that the patch is upon us? In earlier times, the BBL has usuall appeared at least a week before the patch was even downloadable, which again usually was a couple of weeks ahead of the patch hitting the servers. So I’d say about 3 weeks still to go.

So what is the state of the TG saga? Surprise surprise, it’s been reworded again:

Titan’s Grip: While you have a two-handed weapon equipped in one hand, your physical damage done is reduced by 10%.

i.e. when you’re dual-wielding a two-hander, your physical damage goes down by 10%. So we can definitely still tank with our sword and board, but we cannot OH a dagger to avoid the penalty. Truth be told, it was to be expected.

Things are much as we would’ve expected them then. We will get hit by the inelegant nerf that is Titan’s Grip. I say inelegant, because I find it severely blunt to just slam a 10% damage decrease on a 51 point talent. If somebody is thinking that I’m against Titan’s Grip as a talent, then yes I am, since it’s always been entirely unwieldy and it’s bound to be a rollercoaster of nerf and buff. That’s a topic for a whole different post.

The other fury-related change is that Improved Intercept and Weapon Mastery are swapping places in the trees. Basically it means that furies have to stack a little more expertise to cap now. It’s perhaps a bit of a nerf, but it frees up two points that we can use elsewhere in the tree. All in all, not a huge change as such.
