Another Cataclysm Beta build is being deployed and it seems we get another nerf. We must be packing one hell of a punch at level 85, because with Crusader Strike dropping from 150% to 115% weapon damage, and now this latest decrease to Seal of Truth, it would seem Blizzard is trying to tone down our DPS.
I’m not in Beta, I really wish I was, but this latest seal change just boggles my mind. To me, the seals in their current form already appear weak, with the brunt of our damage coming from attacks and abilities. To further lessen the impact of our main raiding seal hurts.
I could be wrong, and I hope someone actually in Beta out will post a comment shedding some light on the possible reason behind this change!
UPDATE: Looks like this was a tooltip correction, and the actual numbers are still the same! Thanks Arrav for pointing that out!

- Seal of Truth now scales from 9.65% of Spell Power / Attack Power, down from 12.85%. Now deals 9% weapon damage when stacked 5 times, down from 15%.
