A new beta build should hit the servers pretty soon, see the changes below.


Warlock Tier 11
The model of the Warlock's set is now available. I'm not really sure how the gloves are supposed to look, I'm just guessing and they either look like the screenshots below, or like that.

    its not like we put out that much damage as demo warlocks anyway
    why make it less
    Its not like theyve needed reasons to do it before.
    Being a warlock you should come to expect nerfs in every new patch build.

    I do not understand what they are changing for the mage spell combustion on this build, it seems like the same thing that it already is on the PTR

    I agree. This totally destroys the cool synergy I saw developing between the ToL instant cast Regrowths and Regrowth procing Efflorescence. Now... Efflorescence procs are paced waiting on the Swiftmend cooldown. WEAK!

    Sad Face indeed. I can't believe I missed that change. I actually did use lifebloom every once in a while on multiple targets. I guess they want it to be for tank healing only =\. Well I guess I can rethink my cata spec now. =(

    Glad to see hunters are still getting buffed....at this rate they are making Wrath beta paladins look gimped.

    Lol too much haste as a DK? I'm a tank and I have like zero haste but get gcd and rune locked all the time anyway. Sometimes I really wonder what the devs are smoking.
  1. Fedono's Avatar
    so, just for the record: the PTR gets the awesome new changes like "+20% on all damage spells for all classes, f*** the rest we'll be awesome" and beta can celebrate the 6year anniversary ? i'm pretty confused now, are they skipping the 13033 build ?!?, can any1 explain that to me ?

    Just a guess but maybe it no longer wipes all your dots from the target, so you get combustion superdot and the ones still on the target keep ticking.

    So far we've already got:
    Priest bitching,
    Paladin bitching,
    Death Knight bitching,
    Warlock bitching,
    and Hunter bitching.

    Any other classes think that Blizzard is singling them out and picking on them? I honestly think that by now everyone should know that numbers pass has barely started, so this premature QQ has to be trolling.

    Everyone (well, a lot of people..) thinks they're the ones being singled out with every patch. It's just the way people and the community are. One class could be 500% more effective in tanks/heals/dps than everyone else, and in a Beta/PTR patch numbers get lowered to be more reasonable, and suddenly people say, "Well that does it. I guess they hate my class I have to play something else."

    The goal shouldn't be to play whichever class Blizzard forgot to [attempt to] tune correctly. Seriously, they're balancing numbers here. Just wait.

    - Yes, and also we inject bubbles into the cyst and follow where they drift.
    - Bubbles is right.
