Judging from his Twitter feed about the changes, it will come and it is because of all these 1500 whines that "omfg I trinketed frostnova to keep spamming necrotic on his healer so he deepd me and I died"

Here's the issue, moonkins depended on getting those random 150k starsurge procs eight times in a row to land a kill. Especially when doing 2s with an ele shaman, I mean goodness. I faced a Moonkin-Ele sham 2v2 that was top 5 last season, this season they cant break 1600 because dk priest with half a brain doesnt drop below 90% health. I'm the dk priest with half a brain.

Doing 2s with a ele shaman is surely the way to go.

I tried it for a little bit in 5.3 with a buddy, we would get most our kills when I would get 2-3 starsurges back to back that would all crit for 100k+ then with my ele shaman partner would pop out about 3-4 instant lava bursts all hitting 70-85k crits, would make for some fast games.

He has also reported his lavabursts now critting for 35-50k.

Yea I agree, last season the comp made a lot of sense. I liked playing it on my hunter, we used to tear it up to at least 1750 which I thought was pretty good considering I wasn't using a pet.

I've tried that as well.
Seems to be quite good, prolly the best for us, warlock might be an another option...

Moonkin have never been this bad. Just abandon ship until something is changed. I played this spec since vanilla and this patch is beyond words. Nothing dies, we flop over when someone looks at us wrong, and we are one of the only casters that have to cast. Its a great trifecta we have going for us.

Honestly I feel the same way, dominating in 5.3 -> pretty bad in 5.4

But I think it'll change with gear, sure could have used the 15% dmg reduction though.
