    Chaos Wave MASSIVE hotfix nerf

    Was doin some bgs recently, noticed my big burst macro was not doing so much.

    Went to dummies. I frequently test how high I can get my waves on the dummy.
    Yesterday I was getting 205k non crits with all CDs up + trinkets/tailoring procced. Right now, I'm getting about 138k.

    ~33% nerf.

    Had some friends test it as well and theyre getting similar results. (were on US servers)
    edit: It seems like a flat 33% nerf, it still does more damage from grimoire of sacrifice.


    Mod Edit: Official Hotfix changes of December 3rd

    The damage and Demonic Fury cost of Chaos Wave have been reduced by 33%. The new values will not be reflected in the tooltip until a client patch.

    You can't get one shot. You either weren't full hp or others were also attacking you.

    You couldn't be one shot by 5 Stack TFB, either. The Warrior had to hit you again.

    Just wanted to know what it felt like to be that guy.

    Couldn't say I didn't see that coming, though my Warlock will be rather sad in PvP now. I wonder if Demonic Slash spam with high fury is sufficient to keep the spec viable in arena or if this means that it's back to Wrath/Cata demo, where we just didn't have the sustained OR the burst damage in PvP. Maybe they'll smarten up and tune down healing in PvP so it's not all about that crazy burst. Oh and when are they going to reduce the insane burst that Frost Mages have with Brain Freeze procs, FoF procs, and Frost Bombs...mainly Frost Bombs though.

    Also, what's the purpose of Chaos Wave now? It already had a lower DPCT than HoG, especially on targets that go beyond the AoE cap. Now it's just worthless and will never be used in any situation. I know Blizz wants to reduce burst, and they've done so with the reduction of possible TFB stacks limited to 3 in PvP for Warriors and the change to make Lynx Rush a DoT for Hunters and I completely support the reduction of burst. There needs to be a trade off though, especially since Demo now has no use for a spell in its arsenal. Make a smart change, don't just hotfix nerf it to oblivion and make the spell useless for all aspects of play, even the ones where it wasn't even that strong.

    Well, it'll be ok. Not game-breaking I don't think, we should still be ok. I think the problem with the aura nerf was that it should've been one or the other of the hotfixes, not both. Or if the cost was 100. 150 still feels like a lot.

    Wonder how much it'll hurt PvE AoE.
