    Warlock dmg

    Is this for real?
    How is even possible that locks can hit me like a truck.
    I am currently at 51.90% Pvp Res, which is not impressive but shouldn't mean I can take more than 300k dmg hits.

    Your thoughts?

    Chaos Bolt always crits, Dark Soul basically increases it's damage. Add some trinkets/procs and 200-300k is possible.

    My thoughts - Bm Hunter's, Mage's and Warlock's damage is a bit over the top at the moment. Same as Warriors.
    Either Blizzard screwed the scaling yet again or it's balanced with full PvP gear in mind.

    hunters burst damage might be insane but our damage is not. Go to the hunter forums no hunter can even hope to compete dps wise in any environment. Once we blow our initial burst we easy pickins

    Lol, that's absurd. I guess I did the right thing holding off buying MoP for a few months at least until things get fixed.

    edit apparently I cannot read, 51% is decent reduction, but maybe they were stacked on pvp power.

    So a warlock pops cooldowns and has bezerker and oneshots you because he hits you with a spell that has a stupidly long casttime?
    What exactly is the problem?

    3sec cast is not long. So should blizzard just give every class a 3sec cast ability so people can go around one shotting eachother?

    And no, I cannot focus interrupt on every single person in the bg.

    Warlock damage was quite broken even during patch 5.0.4 and at level 85 as you can see here:

    http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...mage-reduction

    I ate a 76.6k k Chaos Bolt and I had total damage reduction 71.73% additive.

    Blizzard fanbois then screamed "OMG IT'S TUNED FOR LEVEL 90 PVP", but it was quite apparent that Warlock PvP damage was quite broken.

    I am a veteran player, and after 7 years experience with Blizzard I am quite sure that they will do nothing except buff Retardins and DK's to compensate, perhaps even nerf Hunters.
    NINJA TURTLES as the next playable WoW race/class combo. WoW has got Kung Fu Pandas, Pokemon and recently even Transformers in it, so I don't see how Ninja Turtles would be any less pathetic than current "WoW" is.

    Getting a 3 sec cast off is common in BGs since far from every fight is 1v1 and even then it's more than possible, just silence a caster before chaos bolt or cc them first.

    Well... so many people seem to think they balance PvP around bg's.

    So getting a 250k-350k crit on you in arenas is balanced.. yaay

    You were talking about bg's. Why did you change the subject? And nontheless, in arenas a locks ability to fire of that nuke is greatly diminished. Melee will train them so hard it's not even fair.

    Because you changed it.
    And melee will train them? what about if the opposing team is wizardcleave, fire mls etc?

    Nope, it was you.

    Well then they met their counter? Not that I'd think that anyway since mages aren't really balanced themselves either atm, along with a couple of others.
