A Welcome Change

Previously I discussed the anticipated changes to the made class in the upcoming patch. Today, in a blue post, we get this possible change:
# Improved Scorch: In addition to the stacking crit debuff, will improve your critical strike chance with Fireball, Scorch or Frostfire Bolt by 1/2/3%.

Standard "no promises" caveat applies.

If this does come to fruition, it will be a very nice change. Instead of our standard 5% scorch debuff once the patch goes live, we'll get the 5% debuff raid wide to help everyone out and then an additional 3% to help our own damage. Very nice. Hopefully this change does come through and not be thrown by the wayside.

On another note, last night Vetarra and I snuck into Serpentshrine Cavern to fish up the Lurker Below. I was able to almost make it to his platform without any problems as I used invisibility to get by some mobs and was able to just walk in front of others since they're level 71 and me 80. However, those darn fish in the water made quick work of me, eating through my mana shield and just as I was about to make it to the platform, they killed me.

Luckily I had a stealthy druid there to scoop me up, and after one more hopping session, we made it. I fished up the Lurker on my third cast and with Vetarra shadowmelded, I popped invisibility. And while it saved me, his water blast took out Vetarra even though she was hidden. So she had to stealth back again, I threw up a portal to Shattrath, and she got to fish up the big fish again and we quickly ported out of there before he could get us.

So that leaves me with just one more achievement to go. I am coming for you Dark Herring!
