Destruction used MF for Ember Generation on spread targets and for FnB spam on spread targets, but with the nerf its likely that they'll be using KJC more often than before. If MF turns out to be a single target DPS increase for them (lining up with DS once per minute), they might take that on fights with little movement.
Affliction on the other hand has no chance of benefiting from MF single target, and values KJC far more than Demonology does. Affliction needs more attention, or some way to make the other options more attractive.
Also, just because you don't play Affliction doesn't mean that Fel Flame weakening your DoTs wouldn't happen on a constant basis. Any fight with even minor movement would see Fel Flame nerfing Corruption and UA several times throughout the fight. Proper Affliction play is all about keeping the strongest DoTs possible, and any time you have movement and your procs aren't up, Fel Flame would simply be a dps loss. Blizzard and GC saw that fact (Thankfully) and fixed it.
Sapperwix said there might be another PTR push tomorrow or early next week, so let's hope they get it in that biuld so we can check it out.
I loved the spell, but it's simple to see why it's OP. Moving casters. Kinda takes away the thing casters have to deal with; moving. Moving should be a melee perk imo, nowadays we have too many cast-while-moving spells in WoW, KJC took the prize. So yeah, I think Blizz is right in nerfing it.
To be honest, I really didn't think KJC needed a change, it was one of the few Lock talents that were actually worth a hoot, but Blizz doesn't like it's customers to be satisfied so here we are.
As affliction, 20% of the fight our " filler " is Drain Soul....and for other specs I think Soulfire still gets a buff at 20% of bosses health
It only makes sense to include them with the " reworked " KJC, does it not ? After all, it is 1/5 of the fight.
drain soul being included in KJC would lead to such stupid things, Oh hey there pillar humping, dont mind if i have drain soul going while running around with no reduction whatsoever.
the only thing that would be maybe okay is chaos bolt for destros to actually use it
OT: No, I don't think so. This whole nerf is to make us more vulnerable to movement, including our better fillers when we have decent fillers we can use kinda makes the whole fact of trying to nerf it moot. Waht's left we CAN'T use then if they include those? No, there must be some limitation to the talent, also in order to keep the other talents interesting. The way they have it mind now is more then we could have possibly hoped for allready.

Even so, I think I was amongst the first to suggest making a Glyph to switch it off for Affliction, as it would be helpful to those who play to that level (pro-tip, the overwhelming majority of 'locks don't even know about it, we here are a very fringe of the community being so well informed) but detrimental to Demo/Destro and PvP to remove it altogether.
If they want to keep other talents more interesting, the logical thing to do is ... well, ......to Make Them more interesting....not to ruin a great talent
At this point, I accept KJC for what it is. I still would like to see Seed of Corruption addressed. Hellfire has movement baked in. Immo Aura and Rain of Fire are both passive channels. FnB Incinerate falls under KJC while FnB Immolate doesn't.

right to the source and see what they think
Just made the thread so no replies yet, but hopefully we'll see
It seems to me that the KJC change is a very reasonable compromise, but I think Drain Soul should be added to it, so should SF - they serve the same basic functions as MG and SB, respectively, so there's no reason not to.
AV being a vengeance-like mechanic is a fairly interesting idea, with the current changes to Fel Flame it might be worthwhile.
