Upcoming Class Tuning Changes - March 29

As always, these are subject to further change before they go live, and we’ll have the final adjustments in our hotfixes update next week.

Additionally, we’re not planning on nerfing any over-performing specializations with this week’s pass, as we want to gather more data and provide more advance notice.

    Why not just buff classes to be at their level instead? More fun that way

    BF at 50% instead of 40 - Meh but it is something.
    BF being capped? Utter BS.

    They gutted elemental, and now they're buffing all dmg with 5%... The storm ele nerf feels horrible. Elemental just feel slow and sluggish all the time, compared to previously were you would actually be having fun for a little bit at 20 stacks...

    Ohhh, how nice of them noticing Feral lacking 20% aoe damage by the end of the expansion when it doesn't matter anymore. Can't wait for the beginning of the next expansion to nerf it in the ground and suck for the whole xpack again, as always.

    Spell Reflection cooldown reduced to 20 seconds (was 25 seconds).
    This is amazing. There are quite a few M+ bosses that have reflect-able casts where you could only do every second one with the old cool down and every one with those 20 seconds (Mue'zela or Hakkar for example)

    Where's the guardian 4 set nerf

    Notice how every patch they have to buff all of Destro’s damage by 5%? It’s almost like they need to take a closer look on this spec

    Same thing happens with Feral on regular basis, buffing direct damage abilities by a not insignificant amount. It's almost a meme at this point... correction: memes have been made about it.

    Except demo is (still) dominating and rogue has multiple specs in the top 5.
