    No, actually. That tihng got changed in Beta.
    Only Frost Fever, Blood Plague and Crypt Fever / Ebon Plaguebreinger count for buffing the DK's attacks. And only the diseases that each DK did put up himself.

    anyway...

    losing the devouring plague spread does suck, and removes 1 of the cool synergies that the deathknight had with the shadow priest class.  i guess its back to assisting off the tank rather thent he dps dk in the group.

    I can also imagine attacking such a world, because they would never see it coming.

    I don't understand why people think that this information was readily available when i posted this. There was no way of knowing for sure that the actual spells tooltip had been changed unless you were on the ptr which i wasn't which is why i asked the question and nobody else on any forums that i frequent had any info regarding this. so what was so stupid about this question? why be so condescending ? i would like to know how you would come to the conclusion that you could be 100% sure this was the case by just seeing those patch notes. If its really that obvious I'm sorry for wasting your time with my post.

    It really was that obvious.

    Re: Pestilence no longer spreading devouring plague?

    Its not obvious.

    Other priest-talents have the wording down in an odd way. Take this for example.

    Vampiric Touch
    Causes 850 Shadow damage over 15 sec to your target and causes up to 10 party or raid members to gain 0.25% of their maximum mana per second when you deal damage from Mind Blast.

    So does it give 0.25% mana to 10 players instantly the second MB hits? Does it add a 10sec buff that grants mana each second? You cant know unless you tried it out ingame.

    I wondered about the DK-spreading myself, and I decided that they prolly removed the spread (reading the talent), but imo there is still the chance that Blizzard wrote it in a weird way. So the only way to know for sure is ingame test.

    The question is valid.

    seriously ( and not just the prick ive quoted) if you dont like `spoon feeding the masses` as you so succinctly put it then why the fuck do you post here? people who dont know the answers to questions come here first ( i assume ) because this site supposedly has knowledgeable users/posters/staff and so is a resource same as anywhere else on the internet. if you are offended by people asking what ( in your opinion) are stupid question...dont fucking well involve yourself in a goddamn resource site you arrogant little cunt.
    or am i wrong and this site isnt a resource its just for pros to post and flame tards?
    LOL, look at this angry kid go. Sounds like someone is bleeding from the vagina today. I don't know what I said to piss you off like this, kid, but I do know you must have TONS of friends and a healthy social life with that personality!-(Sindershock)
    The hardcore players are happy with the difficulty (with the exception of Buzzkill, who seems to enjoy complaining)

    It use to be a resource, back in the day when the only people who used sites like this and the EJ boards were the so-called elitist pricks. I mean honestly, back then these boards were full of useful info from players who knew the game and did alot of theorycrafting and whatnot. Now days, all these boards are full of newbs and trolls who do nothing more than waste space with useless crap.

    To be fair, If you know that the Devouring Plague bug exists, you could probably of figured out that they were trying to nerf that without too many brain cells committing suicide

    Re: Pestilence no longer spreading devouring plague?

    Well, if you read the tooltips it seemed pretty evident as well. The old tooltip of Pestilence said that it spread all diseased currently on the target to other targets. The new tooltip specifically states that it only spreads the death knight's own diseases.

    "Pestilence is now 1 rank. It now spreads existing Blood Plague and Frost Fever infections from your target to all other enemies within 10 yards."

    I shall die here. Every inch of me shall perish. Every inch, but one. An inch. It is small and it is fragile and it is the only thing in the world worth having. We must never lose it or give it away. We must never let them take it from us.

    just no.

    seeing the destro locks rain of fire crit for up to 6k ticking the same rate as mindsear the 400 dps through dp per target are just weak (my mindsear never critted higher than 4k, without misery bug)

    Seems pretty straightforward to me.

    How is the tooltip for VT worded in an odd way? It does exactly what it says...gives upto 10 people 0.25% of their max mana every second & requires you to do dmg to trigger that buff.
