It’s more like a re-balancing. The only changes in there that are general across the whole spec are the buff to windfury weapon’s damage (which doesn’t really affect that much at the end of the day) and the buff to maelstrom weapon spenders which is still kind of a side-grade to a talent change. Everything else is just buffing talents that weren’t being used because something else in the tier was stronger than them. What I mean by the maelstrom weapon buff thing is that it’s got an effect on the 35 tier.

Right now at least in my experience Hailstorm has been the go-to for both ST and cleave, with Haistorm being absurdly strong in cleave. Literally did like 30-40% of my damage in M+ last week and twice as much as Stormstrike. Fire nova just wasn’t anywhere near strong enough to even vaguely compete and while Elemental Assault supposedly was meant to be stronger for ST than Hailstorm, I always seemed to pull bigger numbers with Hailstorm on ST regardless. So what they did was nerf Hailstorm by a lot to rein it down so that it doesn’t go too far up above Stormstrike that’s supposed to be the big hitter of the spec, buff fire nova to make it more appealing to use, and buff maelstrom spenders which actually acts as a bit of a buff to Elemental Assault as with that you’re pooling more maestrom.

This should bring the tier down closer to the point where Elemental Assault is better for 1-3 targets, but Hailstorm would be better for 4-6 burst cleave. Fire nova would then be stronger for when there’s more longer-living targets so that flame shock can actually tick to completion and then you can pop off fire nova for cleave. At least that’s what the idea seems to be for the use cases for the spells, but whether it works out depends on tuning. Most likely you’re going to end up with either Hailstorm or Fire nova for cleave/AoE and Elemental Assault for ST and just not look at it any further.

Basically everything else is just talent upgrades. Feral Spirit buff is neat, but you don’t press that cooldown for the pet damage. You press it for the resource generation.

It’s honestly nothing crazy. They’re nerfing the current good talents and buffing others to make them somewhat viable. Only real nice thing is the windfury proc dmg increase.
