I can proc out lich about 21 times a minute (going full force using all tricks to proc it) on average, used a 71 second fight to get the proc rate number... with the nerf we're looking at 3129 damage per minute. 3,129 damage per minute for the uber level 50 spell. 1,785 healed per minute 900 self damage 400 power restored per minute So: 885 total heal per minute Additional 52 DPS 6.7 power regenerated per second Ergo: Lich nerf=a really horrible idea. Also, why the heck is our root changing into a tether clone? Lich is nerfed on one hand to (I assume) combat the ability to chain root and kill stuff with lich procs but now we can just nuke like mad then reroot once the fear kicks in and repeat? So, with that huge damage nerf to the necro's, are we finally getting the rending line changed to also proc and be player targetable? Are we finally getting a damageshield? How about our stun getting fixed? What about fixing the warlock pets buffs? Put the brakes on guys and think about these changes a bit and look at the big picture (as you're so fond of saying). Necro's only do direct damage and that lich spell was in line with all the other mage 50 spells, now it does 25 more DPS than swarm of bats.
