    4.0.1 Class Balance - Update

    With that said, here are the specific changes we made in reference to my previous post:

    1) We buffed the base points and coefficients of many warrior dps abilities. We didn't do as much to tanking abilities.

    We buffed the base points and coefficients of many Ret abilities.

    We buffed the base points and coefficients of many Feral cat abilities.

    2) We lowered the base points and coefficients of many mage abilities, but lowered Fire more than the other two.

    3) We nerfed Shadow Word: Death, but it is possible we didn't nerf it enough. It should not be Shadow's biggest spell.

    4) We returned Searing Pain's damage to its 3.3.5 levels.

    5) We increased the benefit of resilience by 50% for players level 80 and below. The tooltips will probably not reflect this change.

    We don't have any other changes to announce at this time. I am reluctant to mention additional classes or specs that we are looking at currently for fear of instilling excitement or panic.

    Searing Pain is a warlock ability, not mage.

    Searing Pain is listed in the mage color instead of the lock color.

    Holy moly. It's like the anti-reckonbomb bugfix.

    Can they be forgiven for that now? :v

    I like how he called everyone out that's handled t patch so poorly in his last sentence. That's great

    Omg, the sky is falling /wrists

    The last few days have really brought me some giggles.

    I'm not sure where GC said searing pain is a Mage ability. Notice it has it's own number.

    BOOMKINS are the next to go, you heard it here! :-P

    And what's wrong with Balance? Are you forgetting that things are NOT balanced around level 80 but instead 85? They buffed said classes because their damage compared to others was low. The nerfed a few because they are way over the top including on Beta.
