There is a thing in this place. There are people that have not stepped into heroics but have a scholar attitude. There is a specific (and popular) poster that has done zero heroic kills, yet he has this attitude. I have no problem with that, really, since anyone is entitled in an opinion and myself have not finished the current content yet but well.... (was not implying rustive, I just remember that once more when I saw the right question from the quote).
I know the feeling.
The snare shafted me on blade lord heroic, the bladestorm thing being impossible to run out of with the snare, I swapped back to AV and then for the first pull after it I found I was so used to being able to move freely that I was getting surprised when my casts were interrupted by movement, which isn't a good sign. I'm too attached to it though, ended up going back to it and just not being an idiot and being careful not to snare myself close to the blade storms.
I can't help but feel it's possibly too strong, but that's maybe just because nerfs are so regular to anything looking remotely useful, alas, any -dmg component would probably make it something that was never taken, and the snare is already pretty dangerous in pvp.
I think it's perceived strength is amplified greatly by how mediocre our last talent tier is. AV is a load of garbage that's only taken when the other 2 have zero gain, MF is great, but only when we need large area AOE, outside of that it's obviously useless, KJC is completely useless if we never need to move, but if we need to move it's going to be better than AV - but that's not exactly hard to accomplish considering how pitiful AV is.
One of the talents needs to be something that's taken when neither of the other 2 particularly shine, similar to burning rush, it's not because burning rush is super awesome, it's that the other 2 talents are no use on most pve encounters so you take the one that's marginally useful - AV used to be that when KJC reduced damage, but that was just because even a 1% gain is more than 0 - that doesn't mean 1% is OP. KJC is just the new fallback.
1%-3% is nothing whenever there's movement on a fight. I have a very hard time justifying using AV even on fights like Wind Lord, Grand Empress and Protectors because I can't tell if I will gain anything out of it.
The biggest problem with KJC is as already mentioned that it has become the only real option for a big majority of the fights. I really think this should've been AV since it rewards skill and smart play, compared to MF and KJC which we just abuse atm.
I don't care how they fix it because honestly we're in such a good position as it is so simply nerfing KJC without compensation wouldn't harm us that much.
KJC is starting to give me some pretty bad habits on my lock. I know I could play better and not fall into these habits by playing my lock properly while I get back into it, but I don't like what it's giving me for the time being haha. I honestly wouldn't mind them nerfing it pretty big because it would force me to play properly haha
Example: You have a 7000 haste proc and cast a corruption, this corruption will have the 7000 haste benefit until you refresh it again, at which point it will have whatever stats you now have, until you refresh it a 2nd time.

Saving talent for the whole class tbh. If you ask me, without the mobility it offers for Demonology and Destro, warlocks' representation would plummet to irrelevance. Affliction, which is our premier pvp spec is dead, and the other two survives and mobility is one of the major reasons.
KJC is simply awesome.
