For raiding unholy dks these are amazing changes. Not all buffs and nerfs will affect pvp and pve equally. Maybe the next round of buffs will be for you?
Someone's doing something I don't like? Wait, make that someone's buffing my class in ways I don't see as good enough?
They must be trolling!
tbh im shocked at the dk changes they seem to think that frost dk's dying in 3 seconds in any for mof pvp is "fine" unholy needs a buff and they didnt get one,frost dk's need a def/survival buff didnt get one thanks blizz for making dk's useless in the next patch for pvp im not even doing arena as my dk as its so damn frustrating to cap even random bg's are frustrating cos of the bots, i guess activision are finally developing wow now cos wh oever is doing this patch dnt have a god damn clue

@ OP, I think they are some small steps in the right direction, it might not look like much, but changes like Garg not costing RP, or Icy Touch generating death runes will really help us, and make us a lot less clunky than we unholy DKs are right now.
Night gathers, and now my watch begins.
I see QoL changes, combined with some buffs to alternative healing source. Death Pact doesn't cost anything dps wise, but its on a very long CD. Now, Runic Conversion at least, its a very powerful defensive ability (with a full bar, we get 60% health healed compared to previous 30%. Vice versa, its half the dps loss it was before)
Seriously, blizz is giving you a chocolate cupcake, and you spit on it expecting a full cake? WTF, some ppl just can't be happy. You want DK only Death Gems that give you a chance to instantly kill your target, your target's party, all the ppl in your target's party's guild, and the friends of each person on all of thier friends list?
Warlock pvp 4 set makes twilight ward absorb all magical damage. So your erhm concerns about that is pretty minimal, Any serious pvpers already has 4 set anyways and people that don't have 4 set are rather easy targets to begin with anyways
I play many games. WoW, Rift, D3, PoE, SC2 I will not criticize your game choice if you don't mine.
These are all nice bonuses. And if you're complaining about survivability you're not super smart. Death pact is the best. It's almost as good as lay on hands. And we have remorseless winter pet stun death grip mind freeze and strangulate. I'm pretty sure we can lock someone down and kill them. The change to gargolye is amazing. It's free to cast and now does shadow dmg which scales with our mastery. I'm pretty sure you just don't play unholy. That's the only way you wouldn't see these blatantly obvious buffs as buffs.
the gargoyle changes are pretty good.
sorry you don't understand that.

My channel: Shirgadirth I do gameplay/commentary. First 3 parts of my Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon did not record properly so are only 480p and poor sound but the rest are 720p with decent sound so if ya' just push through those 3 episodes or just skip them I am sure you will enjoy the rest!
I guess the OP and many others are not familiar with the term "quality of life improvements". It's not always as black and white as it seems. It's not as simple as buffing or nerfing stuff. Many players have different play styles and it's not always about min/maxing or tuning something towards one part of the game, be it raiding or PvP.

QoL changes is what they are... and if they aren't going to be serious about it, I'll take those QoL changes any day of the week.

I'm curious. Where do people get the idea that if they ask for or issue a demand for something they want from a game company... that the game company is going to oblige them?
I see it all the time...
"People asked Blizzard"
"People Told Blizzard"
"We Didn't Ask For This"
I know it's no fun playing a class that you feel doesn't compete as well as others. But to complain when you don't get what you want and then to go tin foil hat enough to think that Blizzard would intentionally troll a group of their subscribers... Silly if you ask me.
