Final Tuning on Netherlight Crucible
Some last minute changes were made to the Netherlight Crucible powers.

In general, these changes are intended to bring the value of the various powers closer together, and ensure they’re desirable choices for players. We’ve loosened the restrictions these powers had on the PTR, so effects that previously did not take your character’s modifiers into account are now improved by things like Haste and Critical Strike, and relevant buffs or debuffs that are part of your class. We also updated numerical tuning to take those changes into account.

Tuning Changes:

The above all differ from what you may have seen on the PTR, and we appreciate the time and effort that testers put into providing the feedback we received.

What the fuck is there not to be happy about? You can stand in more fire (or get combo-ed less).
    Because OP is not the same as fun and RNG is exactly the opposite of fun. But I'm sure NC will be fun eventually what with Blizzard changing the values every day. I guess all that time on the PTR wasn't enough.

    Isn't that the point of this? Blizz said over and over that it's an indirect nerf to ToS. Antorus will be tuned assuming people have access to this. I don't see the big deal.

    That is their mastery that is an entirely different thing. The damage buff from specs weapons is a flat dmg increase for all specs except the 3 mage specs and shadow priests. For them it is only for their specs school of magic.

    Which now is only 5%? The 10% trait is all damage, it's not spec specific.

    Getting 5% more sure is a nice buff.

    These bonuses add roughly 5-20k DPS, so 5% is fairly miniscule in the grand scheme of things. Losing out on 1-3k DPS when you are doing 1.5 Million is nothing.
