    Unless the player uses iceblock, cloak of shadows, bubble, dispels or starts eating.

    And i don't really think there's gonna be alot of crits in a pvp scenario due to resilience and low critrating with dot specs.

    Other then dispel those other things all have rather long cooldowns the HPS on them is undeniably poor.
    so priest or paly which neither of could life tap and drain health back and have a long time between spells when it comes to offense.

    Despite my earlier enthusiasm, I think this is mostly a tease, sort of an "Oh Don Piano" moment. They're letting us know that there is news coming, that there are changes on the way, but those changes are far from concrete. I'm just as eager to get my hands on some real information as anybody else, but it's going to be a while before we see any real numbers on this.

    hmm true , lock should be able to dot a player up and leave him so he can die in peace
    yes, because PvP is every person's concern

    oh look, it's resilience gear! go buy some!

    Ahem, no. Haste affecting GCD was a bandaid. While it did help, it barely made a difference. Trust me, I'm a raiding ex-affliction lock. And, oh yeah, warlocks topped damage for casters by putting up dots! The reason we topped damage end game with spamming and NOT dots was specifically because dots don't benefit half as much from haste as pure spamming does.

    Dots don't benefit from haste at all. Haste on global cooldown casts is mostly eaten by lag.

    For PVE I would love dots critting...

    For PVP Dots Crit = raped by resilience. Basically resilience would work against dots on the crit side and the damage over time side.

    Surprisingly, no one at Blizzard is so stupid as to think that drain mana should crit.

    yeh.. as they're not 'raped by resilience' now

    It doesn't even scale with spell damage... (mana drain). Its only use is raping poor shamans that try to pvp.

    Re: DoTs are probably gunna get scaling. Blue Post.

    Well if its going to be anything like.. DK "diseases dot crits" it'll be be the first hit ;/

    If its going to be like DK unholy blight though... it defiantly will make warlocks powerful once again O_o

    say what?

    the only use i had was keeping a flagcarrier mage at 0 mana so he couldn't blink while my teammates were beating on him

    Try using it on shammies when they try to play pole dancing on a pillar, they love it.

    Re: DoTs are probably gunna get scaling. Blue Post.

    Dots wont crit, they were refering to drain life and drain soul being able to crit.


    If dots could crit, aff would be the best raiding spec, and the best pvp spec. It would be WAYYY op

    I wish dots could crit, but it would just be way to unfair

    if dots crit im sure the damage coefs would be lowered greatly

    Dot's do some pretty shitty dmg atm why is that?

    When the pre-TBC patch hit lock dots were scaling WAY too high... at 60 they were ticking for 500-600 a tick (at least on my lock) so they were scaled down

    Now dots suffer from scaling issues due mostly to gear with haste and crit but also due to how end game raid dps works with debuffs and buffs along with haste and crit.

    There will be a new talent in Affliction in an upcoming build.

    Keywords: "DoT" and "Crit" (Well, sorta)

    yes, because you should know, in that gear, DoTs don't harm you a lot

    myself, i have a 381 resilience merciless warrior, and honestly, DoTs don't harm me as bad as you make them out to be, so either you're just lying because you hate warlocks, or you don't have that so called "full vengeful warrior"
