    Nope, these are our first draft automated notes. I'll come back with a second draft in a ~10 minutes that is more accurate and then rewrite it all by hand to make it easier to read.

    Stop nerfing warlocks, we already suck D:

  15. #15
    So they nerf the moonkin dot timer and completelly screw moonkins, a couple of weeks later they fix the huge mistake and revert to the 18 secs and now they nerf it to 14 secs again??

    This change completely screws multi-dotting for us.

    Lower the damage but keep the timer the same -.-
