I logged in patch to see whats new , and i saw 63k mana cost on spellsteal, 4 spellsteals u oom, so u basically cant try spellsteal a sacrifice or anything similar , so i thought id go invocation which has 10 sec cd and will allow me to be able to use 1 spellsteal per 10 secs because ill use evo while casting just for 1rst tick. But in my opinion what they should had done is to nerf the mana regen of mages instead. What u guys think?im not defending spellsteal btw , it should be nerfed but just not this way in my opinion.

Since spellsteal got this nerf it's only right that shaman's have mana cost of purged increased atleast I mean they get to glyph for 2 purges for the price of 1...btw can't steal earth shield anymore on top demon soul not being able to be stolen or dispelled.

mage playstyle needs to get as far away from spamming spell steal as possible, this change was for the best.

I would rather have seen a cooldown on it, then making it cost that amount of mana. But I guess this change is fine too.

I would rather have a CD on SS then it have some stupid amount of mana cost. That or shaman have purged increased to the same amount as SS.

Maybe a mechanic like if you use it 2 times it gets a ~8s or sth cd, if you use it once and dont spam it twice instantly like after waiting for 3seconds, you can still use it twice before getting cd again(with old manacost ofc).

Agreed. Also, after this has taken place please change icy touch to 4x death runes cost.

DKs aren't shattering your entire HP bar after hitting icy touch a few times, because....they can't.
Sometimes I sometimes when I sometimes, but not all the time.

I agree purge is silly but purge don't give the buffs i remove to myself.  The glyph should also doubble the mana cost on purge but spell steal was horrible pre 5.1

Sure good change but with that give DK's blink, ice block and on 30 sec cooldown sec 4 sec stun. So we on pair with mages ok ?

It wasn't the right way to go about changing spell steal but asking for other classes to be nerfed more so you can remain much stronger isn't the right way to balance this game unless you like it being mind numbingly easy.

Thiiiiiiiiis. Enh Shammys use purge as part of the rotation anyway, so allowing them to purge twice as much makes it twice as braindead. Atleast Resto Shamans have to come out of LoS to purge, and are spending globals on that instead of healing. It's a risk vs reward.

Enh just spam it all day erryday.
