WoW Heroics Nerfed in 4.0.6

Well we all knew it was coming, heroics are about to be beaten with the nerfbat this Tuesday. I for one was glad to see a bit of challenge back in the 5 mans, face-rolling Wrath heroics was incredibly boring. First off there is a long list of changes to the heroics, overall the incredibly easy fights are being buffed slightly and the difficult fights are being nerfed. Overall this is a nerf since this "moderate" difficulty Blizzard is trying to set all the fights too really isn't that hard; not to mention that heroics are slowly becoming easier as people learn the fights and acquire more gear.

Now the new recently announced nerf that everybody has been talking about is the luck of the draw change. Luck of the draw is a buff that provides 5% increased damage, healing, and health if you have at least one random player in your group acquired through the dungeon finder. This is being buffed to 5% per random player up to 15%, meaning if your group has at least 3 players found through the dungeon finder the buff will be set to 15%. This will make the heroics substantially easier, much like the ICC buff of Wrath. Blizzard's justification for this change is that random groups lack coordination and this buff makes up for that.

  3. Geared healers who are unfortunate enough to miss guild daily heroic groups rejoice. Oh wait your pug ret paladin still won't move out of the fire and will be doing 4400 dps instead 4000 and the tank who has no idea what he's doing will still eat every ground slam/shatter on Ozruk in Stonecore. Yay.
