Rushing Jade Wind + Spinning Crane Kick bug

(Locked)

Hi,
There seems to be an issue as of the latest patch (deployed earlier this evening (11/03/13)). It seems to have caused an error with the way that Rushing Jade Wind interacts with Spinning Crane Kick, at least with the damage multiplier caused by RJW, causing Spinning Crane Kick to hit for impossibly high numbers (I was getting 13-14M crits in LFR).
With heroic progression coming tomorrow and Wednesday for US and EU respectively me and several other people who noticed this bug thought it would be appropriate to post this in as many places as possible to stop this being abused to beat heroic-modes.
Thanks,
Infii.

It's hilarious =) shouldn't be abused for raids tho, but play around a bit while you can! =)

It's very hard for me to resist not going and doing some achievements I'd never be able to get, but I don't want to get banned so yes. Play around with it if anything. It works in PVP too by the way, at least in a /duel.

Same, but playing around a bit in solo/5mans shouldn't be too harmful.

Mhm. I wonder how long it'll take to get a blue reponse on the monk forums NOW, hmm? Maybe they'll notice how wound up we are with all the other monk changes.

Well we have been asking for buffs. This might take it a wee bit too far though.

So easy for people to just walk in and kill Ra-Den with this.

This is huge exploiting potential and needs immediate attention.

Given how previous 'over the top' damage bugs have been treated we can expect a couple of hours before the hotfix. It's just the % modifier on RJW that's bugged.

I can see them issuing rollbacks on progress made in raids using this skill. But I doubt they'll banhammer people using it to farm the odd heroic or gank some guards in the opposing faction city. (That would be a third of the monk playerbase pretty much, even tho Xuen might win out on the populatiry poll).

Feels like in the pursuit of getting rid of the bug, they overdid it and nerfed spinning crane kick. Might just be me that's remembering wrong, but I'm pretty sure the ticks on it was higher.

The problem was RJW, i doubt they changed anything on SCK?
