Thanks for nerfing warlocks... why don't you just get rid of warlocks blizzard....
You should be used to it by now, through times, theres barely been a patcs where Warlocks haven't been nerfed.
Suppose it's still some grudge they hold since back in the days.
First WSG I entered after 5.0.4, ally 4 mages & 2 warriors where spawncamping all hordes, while the rest ran back & forth with flag.
Oh well, I still love my warlock, and it will always be my main.
Chain Lightning nerf when I was expecting a buff to it. I'm shocked.
..:: Lvl 90's: 44 ::..
Lets hold the bitching for a while. A pre-expansion patch releases and everyone bitches about who is either OP or nerfed. Blizzard doesnt release a new expansion that increases the level cap, yet worry about how balanced things are going to be at the previous level cap. Level to 90 and see how balanced things are, which is their main focus, before you all get your panties in a bundle.
Yes I know at 90 people will still bitch about their class for some reason, which leads me to ask myself why I am even typing this...must just be out of pure boredom at work.
The funny thing is, you are all bitching about nothing. These are already implemented, tooltips are just being updated.
How much of this is tooltip fixes and how much is actual changes?
I'm sure u all will be elites before its all said and done.
these are all tooltip changes. they are already in game. stop crying over nothing!
That 400% mage buff has to be a tooltip adjustment. I play arcane and if it really is a buff of that magnitude it'll be insane. I drop a bit on mana at 6 stacks of Arcane Blast (80-85%) but it fills up after clearing stacks. Buffing it that much will let me do mind-blowing damage spamming AB.
Most of this patch is tooltip updates, guys. These changes were mostly already hotfixed to the live servers.

The game is not balanced around 85 anymore. Spend a few weeks at 90, and then make judgement. And use your actual experience to base it on, not simcraft results (which are a tool, not the balancing benchmark).

Games are not necessarily "easier" today. You are just a better player.
It takes more now to impress many gamers than it did 2-5 years ago, because so much has already been seen and done.
Many players expect to be wow'd with every release of a beloved franchise.
These are generally NOT the fault of the developers, but the fault of many players over-hyping and/or setting expectations too high.
Well I don't think I bitched, and normally when they are just updating the tool tips it says that they are just tool tip updates. Maybe I missed where it says tooltip updates.
Again my issues is about the fact they are reducing hunters/pet dps yet seem to be upping warriors dps as a tank. Unless there is some mad scaling issues with warriors on the way to 90 decrease.. while other classes increase.. ya know it seems odd to my eyes. I've been around since tbc came along and I don't think that's something I've come across.
@Blind, its generally why I type on any wow related forum.. boredom at work. Then I get home and see 612 replies from people who can't understand what I typed and then I facepalm as to why I bothered :P
Jesus they already had these systems in place, just updated the tooltip text. So your damage won't change. Bunch of whiney babies.
