This is a Petition regarding the World of Warcraft game by Blizzard Entertainment. Planned changes in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm : Itemization In World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, there are plans to streamline the statistics found on items. We want to remove all unnecessary stats, make all existing stats understandable, and make all "core" stats more appealing. Here are some examples of such plans. * MP5: This will be removed from items and replaced with Spirit. All healers will be given a meditation-like ability. * Spell Power: Spell Power is being removed from items as well. Don't panic, we'll be improving Intellect so that it provides mana and Spell Power. * Attack Power: We're removing Attack Power from items as well. Instead, we're allowing Agility to provide the necessary Attack Power for leather and mail wearers. Strength will provide the appropriate amount of Attack Power for plate wearers. This means leather and mail items will no longer be desirable for plate wearers. * Defense: The Defense statistic is also being removed from items so that players no longer have to worry about juggling around "the cap." Tanks will receive the necessary anti-crit from talents, like Survival of the Fittest. * Armor Penetration: This ability is too confusing and "mathy." It is being replaced with Mastery, a stat that makes you better at what you do. More on that later! * Block: Block Value is being removed. Blocking will now always mitigate a percentage of damage. * Stamina: Players will notice more Stamina on gear as Defense, Spell Power, Attack Power and Armor Penetration are removed. -------------------------------------------------- Don't change the Variables we have, it's what keeps everyone unique. What your doing is dumbing the game down, which i think the majority of players don't even like. If you don't agree with these changes Blizzard is planning, sign this petition and hope for the best, Should we get enough signatures we will forward it to Blizzard Entertainment.
