Maybe I am blind and missing it in the patch notes, but I am overweight all of the sudden. Did they they remove a str buff from something? I have double checked everything I am wearing and what I am carrying.

A STR buff is being removed, and we are getting +90 Spell dammage instead. Is it in then <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

I don't understand why they didn't put that strength on another buff like they did for paladins.

I thought that was because SOE hates SKs.  We have the weakest agro generation of any class (Arn't we supposed to be a class that makes people hate them?  And I thought that the power of a Shadowknight traditionally came from Innoruuk anyway.) we have the 23rd lowest raid utility (thanks to the NEW buff) I think SOE just hates us.  WTB: Terror of Discord spell from EQ1 (mmm, 3000 instant agro with a 2 second recast that cost 15 mana)

The minimal benefit from the STR component compared to the raid benefit of the spell dammage is a step up imo. For soloing it's a bad thing though, and likely for grouping as well, depending on the group makeup of course.
