While I'm glad this is going to happen, I have to wonder why they made 2 new radiance sets with the revamped Helegrod and Annuminas sets.
Different decision-makers, maybe. One way to solve the radiance problem is to remove it entirely. Another is to make radiance so accessible, it is effectively the same as removing it entirely. Perhaps they were pursuing the problem from both ends.
Also, "We will be removing Radiance" does not specify a time frame. Next book update? Next new raid? Next level cap increase? December 2010? March 2011? September 2011? I'm still glad to have new paths to radiance until that unspecified time.
