Misery…upon others, again. And, Potions and Naxx loot

It seems that the changes done to Misery were slightly over the top according to Blizzard; while they decided to keep the relevant talent to a +hit talent, removing one of our bonus damage debuffs, they did decide to alter it a bit by adding our own little damage bonus:

Misery (Tier 8 ) changed to: your Shadow Word: Pain, Mind Flay and Vampiric Touch spells also increase the chance for harmful spells to hit by 1/2/3%, and increases the damage of your Mind Blast, Mind Flay and Mind Sear spells by an amount equal to 5/10/15% of your spell power.

This is from MMO-champion, as it is listed as an undocumented change. We met our match in Blizzard, they are nearly as shadowy and sneaky as we are (but less than subtlety rogues).

Also, it seems some of the Naxx loot is now shown on MMO-champion. While we have to take into account that it is still rather fresh and untested, it looks pretty decent. With the recent changes to our Crit requirement, stocking up on crit may actually help us decide to go for the Nuker set (first below) rather than the Healer set (second below). There are no set bonuses yet, nor an indication if this will look like T3, or be the rather lavishly documented “Tier 7” from Youtube.

Finally, some of the new potions are listed. These Endless Healing Potions seem to be reusable items, rather than one-shot. The flavor text indicates it is “sanctioned for arenas”, which may shed a whole new light on the Alchemy profession. With the potion nerf allowing you to quaff only one potion per combat, a reusable version may reduce some of the pressure on us chain-chuggers.
