The last one or two beta patches have been assigned a (Release) tag (mmo champs pointed it out to me). MMO is speculating that unless there is a major patch this week then 4.0.3a (the shattering) will go into effect next week. That would be pretty awesome.
The newest beta build is small and only a few changes to us healers. Nothing sweeping, just an overall nudge in the healing amounts.
Binding Heal base healing value increased by 20%
[ 3960 – 5091 ] to [ 4752 – 6110 ]
Greater Heal base healing value increased by 20%
[ 6968 – 8098 ] to [ 8361 – 9717 ]
Heal base healing value increased by 20%
[ 2613 – 3037 ] to [ 3136 – 3644 ]
Flash Heal base healing value increased by 20%
[ 5227 – 6074 ] to [ 6272 – 7289 ]
Seems pretty good to me!
Shaman’s AOE heal, healing rain, got a 100% increase in healing.
On a completely unrelated note… did you know someone has to be in guild on a specific toon for 72 hours before you can promote them to a rank that requires an authenticator? How weird is that. I can’t even promote myself at the moment!
