Ghostcrawler is gone, time to celebrate!
it should be nerfed at least..
RIP to my affliction warlock.
Shards is the new 'mana'.
Blizzard isn't done yet beta is just starting lots of things will change, I personally can't see this going live potentially with a charge system or a timed buffed that allows a time-limit to use soul swap without consuming shards for like 10 seconds or so, or every 5 soul swap casts a shard is consumed.
Soul Swap isn't nerfed they are just changing tooltips. Currently Soul Swap already costs 1 shard to get all 3 dots up.
Nothing changes except a tooltip
Do they always have to confuse people with the tooltip changes?

Just checked on beta, swap costs 1 shard. Soulburn also costs 1 shard which makes SB+SS cost 2 shards

Edit: Scrolled through 5 or 6 pages of previous beta/alpha builds, no dice. It's really disheartening to see soul burning soul swap at such a ridiculous cost. What's the point to affli with this change unless they are cutting down keybind clutter by doing what I mentioned above, removing soul swap from soul burn and just making swap cost a shard and function as if it's soulburned all the time.
Either way, going to wait and see how things turn out in a week or so, then I will start to sweat.

Reduce- Iconic class abilities, complexity and meaningful rotations, usefulness of any one class in a raid group
Reuse- A continent from 3 expansions ago, a story arch from 3 games ago, characters that would otherwise be dead
Recycle- A beaten to death plot-line, the nostalgia goggles for TBC, bossfight mechanics that make patchwerk seem complex
The three R's of Warlords of Draenor and that doesn't even mention flying, #savekarabor, blizzard store, tier to tier ilvl skips.
People should chill out. It is still Beta things might still change or it might even be a bug?! Who knows till we see what hits live and when we see live numbers.
Maybe fights dont need a slot of soulswapping or maybe they are gonna buff durations?! who knows but for now just chill the f out.
Ιf that goes live, i m stopping playing wow altogether.........classic Blizzard mentality.......lock are strong, lets balance them by reducing them to a crappy shithole
ive never played a warlock before, is this really that big of a deal?
The nerf is as big as a nerf can get, but it's justified since soul swap it's a broken mechanic in so many ways.
They will probably balance it through other ways so not really worrying.

Or they could remove it, and make you have to actually cast your dots on every target.
Soul swap is incredibly broken in pvp right now, something has to change. Apparently its pretty op in pve as well.
Signatures are for squares! Oh wait...
