Chaos Bolt (Destruction) Unleashes a blast of chaos, causing [ 2,682 + 279% of Spell Power ] Shadow damage. Power or 2,163 + 225% of Spell Power ] Shadow damage.
Someone care to explain.

corruption, doom, and chaos bolt are getting nerfs... why?
BLZ just nerfed corruption and then said Affliction do too little dot pressure in PvP and according to these notes corruption got nerfed again.
So my bet is that those two are tooltip errors being fixed or am I misstaken, but didnt CB get nerfed the last patch?
If not, then fuuuuuuuuu
If not, then the PvP buff that's in the notes is just a sham too, cause it won't offset the nerfs being put in. Which would be kinda silly. Again, I'm thinking tooltip fixes. *fingers crossed*
These are tooltips updates (Chaos bolt, Corruption, Doom), you can check the live values in Simulationcraft.
Don't freak out !
I already stopped pvp'ng as affliction for the first time in 8,5 years. It is so weak that it has come to this so I hope BLZ act on it since they pubicly announced they are concerned that affliction do too little DoT pressure.
They keep shooting the busted-legged-horse that is Destruction for no reason.
A 10% bonus really won't do more than just offsetting that 25% nerf to corruption they did a while ago, and even that damage was way to low.
As for chaos bolt, is that really a tooltip change? The last nerf to chaos bolt was ages ago, it's kinda weird if they still have to fix the tooltip. :/
EDIT: Not to mention that our current 2set PvP bonus will be gone, which is 20 sec cooldown Reduction on unending Resolve. Another nerf to our survivability... /sigh
Oh well, I'm getting used to all the nerfs already, not even gonna bother to complain this time.

god i hope the chaos bolt change is just a tooltip update because atm i only play my lock for destro pvp and if it gets any worse than it already is i might just go dk full time and i really dont want to do that

fairly sure these changes is just tooltip changes as zumzumzum said, wouldnt make much sense to nerf us again.
The pvp set change is actually a net nerf in my opinion. I truly, truly look forward to being shadow locked more often now.
Unending Breath now breaks the Soulburn walk on water effect on damage taken.
WHY are we NEVER allowed to keep nice things?
Hello everyone, soulstoned myself after 300 years.
Anyway, Ghostcrawler dont touch my specs >
the new 4-set bonus is very very weak... especially for destruction! Affliction's benefits= 0% in pvp...
Need aldo to increase fel flame damage!
Good news for the new syphon life gliph, 0.5% healing at tick is "good"
The new 4-se bonus wont change anything. They did not change the Haunt/MG throttle.
This is just another cosmectic change by BLZ.
In addition to this they need to either:
- Make MG uninterruptible but still suspect to silences/stuns
- Remove the KJ penalty when casting MG
Personally I think the first one is warranted since the other solution only reward a certain choice of talent.
