I personally hate this change, with the new buff to shield block items, I will get an increase of 250ish BV. I cannot see the balance between this increase and the nerf hitting shield block.
I am a dual prot speced too and this is the style i like playing. I have no alts and never cared to set one up.
Yes i been playing only this char since the very start.
Shield block was my only way to control some spike damage when i soloed/quested/pvped.
my normal SS crits with SB up usually were 8kish. Thats with the VH shield block trinket active too.
I hate this change and we need to keep posting i the official forums to try get it changed back. Unfortunately I cannot post in the us forums :/
