Whoa the numbers just keep marching up!

Reviewing the game mechanics change, I happened to glance at the new level 80 ratings for stats:

The amount of a particular Rating a player would need on their gear to achieve a 1% change in the respective stat at level 80:

Hit @ 70: 15.76923275 Hit @ 80: 32.78998947
Crit @ 70: 18.92307854 Crit @ 80: 45.90598679
Haste @ 70: 15.76923275 Haste @ 80: 32.78998947

Crit per Agility point for Hunters:

@ 70: .025 @ 80: .012

This means for 1% crit, hunters need 83 agility.

Ugh, I knew there would be scaling, but, damn, I didn't realize it would be over double! Means items like Heartseeker Scope are just impressive to us now, but are nothing more than equal to the buffs we have now at 80.

Actually, funny that you say that. With the math you're listing (and that math looks about equal to my math), it looks like the Heartseeker Scope is a bit WEAKER than the Stabilized Effort Scope.

I used it as a general example. It was the first thing that came to mind when recalling WotLK buff items.

Still, kinda weird that they are decreasing the strength of enchants such as that scope...
