I'm glad they finally 'fixed' UVLS and I was surprised they didn't already for 5.4 release. It's mechanics were just broken and they always were. Designing the damage of a spec (demo) around having or not having one single trinket is just stupid in my opinion.
Looking at recent kill videos I absolutely agree with a affl/demo nerf. Stop acting like were lowest dps in the world now.
1) This is pre-nerf.
2) This is the kill, meaning this was a moment when the stars aligned for the 'god-tier' Warlock damage
3) Where do you think this will place Warlocks post-nerf, calculating point two in the observation?
Would like to see some of the videos.
One day they will finally sit down and realise they need to make a PvP version of every spell for all classes and then and only then can a game be truly balanced around its current purpose. Then one row of binds can be PVE and another PVP binds. But ofc please don't hold ones breath.
I played Aff throughout ToT and could only watch in awe what my Demo collegue could pull off if his procs aligned. It was epic. There must always be a Warlock Nerf, no raid tier is complete without one. At least with this, Demo had its moment of glory (just like Aff at the beginning of MoP tier 14).
Brilliant! This is clearly why they buffed Frost, too ;DI can only imagine its a PvP burst thing from players crying about being zerged on the Isle. Because clearly Demo is good for that.
So demonology is not accepted in raids anymore? Fuck, I was leveling warlock for sole reason of demonology because it is a spec where I never need to stop casting.
My gear is....not prepared. Its gonna be fun testing/working on alternatives before raid time :/
