About 20% of a destro warlocks dps is Conflagrate, after 30% is removed that means we're looking at a 6% dps decrease. As you can see is the simulationcraft thread that means our dps is a grand total of 6308 now, 650 below Affliction + Doomguard and 550 below Felguard/Emberstorm. Thats a 10% difference.
And maybe I'm going crazy, but for some reason Sartharion and his drakes, and both bosses in VoA and the trash were immune to my conflagrates today.
I like destro, but this isn't what I bargained for.
So looking at the numbers on elitist, 40/31 is now inferior to 41/30.
I want a freespec.
Not only that, but all destro specs are inferior to meta spec for pve. So you can choose to bring an insanely unique raid buff that only demo locks can bring (demonic pact) and do more damage, or bring replenishment and uh...suck I guess. Thank you blizz for nerfing our burst without making up for it anywhere else.
Yeah, they give us a free re-spec, then nerf our main DPS spell and force us to pay the 45-50 gold anyway to respec 0/41/30 instead of 0/40/31. F'n BS. Not to mention the fact that it's THE most boring spec to play.
