Default Melee changes that did not go in; but did some go in?

Minimum hit on paladin did not go up, so the 2h dmg bonus changes are definitely not in effect. Having said that; 4 fights solo in KC with the same buffs before and after did show a bump in my max hit (198-202) and average hit (94-96). Granted this is a limited sample but in none of the preceding 26 fights before the patch did I score a hit over 200 with the same buffs with the same weapon.

I know part of the patch was knights would get put on same melee tables as warriors ... could this part have gone in or do I just have too small of a parsing sampling size to really tell a difference?

When the 2h dmg bonus goes in, this weapon goes up to a bonus of 40 per hit from whatever it is capped at currently.

I forget if paladins had the skill cap bug on defense only or not, but supposedly that was fixed (instead of needing to zone to CS to fix skill caps). That might be why?

The Narandi is now 44/45 but besides that I can't really tell a difference so far.

Disease cloud does way less agro, my melee damage seems noticeably better by a small margin....low end hits seemed more rare but not gone.

Just dinged 50 so it could be that, but I'm noticing my flash of light isn't pulling nearly as much agro. Is it finally time to retire it?

Just echoing what others have said. Flash of Light seems to be half as aggro-laden as before, or thereabouts.

Tested at low levels...not guaranteed one cast aggro anymore. Rogues backstab and get turned on. Can't use FoH sparingly. Easy to go OOM from chain pulls without mana regen, which means having to sit and meditate rather than pull.

Tested at high levels...noticeable difference, requiring more diligent casts and taunt use. Mana is less of an issue, but interrupts can lead to mob turning on dps initially.

Stuns seem to hold aggro as well as before. Might consider carrying an alternative proc weapon, for times when there is no mana regen available, especially ones that proc root.

Have yet to test Flame Lick or Disease Cloud.

Bio Orb aggro is noticeably down as well [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.] That sucks!
