Message to User:

Don't make a post just to quote mmo-champion or a blue post; add something original of your own to the conversation. If you don't have anything worthwhile to add, then don't post.

(Complaining about uncertainty over which spec is best isn't a substantive addition. That's actually against the rules too.)

PTR Class and Set Bonus Issues, Part III - Forums - World of Warcraft

I had a feeling they might un-nerf those buffs...if that makes any sense :)

I just tightened up my Unholy performance a bit last night in LFR's in anticipation of 5.2...now they're going to buff Frost at the last minute to make me re-think my decision! At least I don't have to reforge/gem to swap between 2HF and UH.


EDIT: He posted updated numbers on trinket RPPMs and how it is affected by Haste

Updated Trinket and Meta Gem numbers

Warning: Arcana! This information is targeted at theorycrafting. You don't need to read any of the following to benefit from these items in patch 5.2.

RealPPM Functionality Changes
We changed RealPPM to use your true melee haste or spell haste (whichever is higher) to scale the proc rate instead of attack speed or casting speed. The difference is that things that buff your attack speed (such as the raid buff or Slice and Dice) do not increase the frequency of RPPM procs. True haste boosts, such as Bloodlust or haste rating on gear will improve proc rate. We felt this change was necessary to balance proc rates among different specs.
