Class Tuning Incoming - November 22

We’ll be hotfixing these changes into the Beta very soon, and we’ll then apply them to the live game with scheduled weekly maintenance, which is Tuesday, November 22 in this region.

    Can’t wait for another 5%-10% buff to enhancement to bring it back to what they had weeks ago. I mean seriously what even was the point of a 25% nerf in the first place lol.

    Its just a FFXIV clone with lots of sparkly dragons by now and a stupid talent system which has the same limitations as the one we had from day 1 in WoW vanilla and with a upgraded flying system.

    atleast they are trying to patch the new mess they've made and i really hope they get back on track in 10.1.5 where they pull the ripcord once again and reverting some changes like a total removal of the 18 year old UI, maybe bringing it back as an option.

    Evokers are by the way doing some insane dmg in greens and i hope they get them on a even playfield with other caster dpsers before Dragonflight s1 arena/m+ goes live.

    Just look for the balance patch for beta last week - although I believe it was 10% and with this new change they only got nerfed 10% total not 25% anymore.

    I'm a bit worried about mages. Espically Fire. Melee is WAY to strong in PvP ATM.

    Stil no pvp DH nerfs?!

    I'm really glad to see all the morons quitting WoW and keeping their self-entitled hate and whine in places like mmo champion forums. WoW feels so much fresher and less toxic already in-game.

    And Dragonflight is looking awesome so far, can't wait for the full release.

    Love that enhancement received a flat 25% nerf only to be gradually buffed by 15% again.
