Upcoming Class Tuning - January 12

Classes

  • Death Knight
    • Blood
      • Bone Shield grants armor equal to 70% of Strength (was 50%).
    • Frost
      • All damage is increased by an additional 2% while a two-handed weapon is equipped.
  • Mage
    • Frost
      • All damage abilities increased by 9%.
  • Monk
    • Windwalker
      • All damage is increased by an additional 2% while a two-handed weapon is equipped.
    • Brewmaster
      • All damage is increased by an additional 2% while a two-handed weapon is equipped.
  • Rogue
    • Assassination
      • All damage abilities increased by 8%.
  • Warrior
    • Fury
      • All damage abilities increased by 8%, except for Bladestorm and Dragon Roar.
      • Meat Cleaver talent now increases Whirlwind’s damage by 25% (was 30%).

PVP

  • Players will now drop PvP flags if they cast Podtender (including Temple of Kotmogu orbs).
    • Note: this fix will be applied to the live game as soon as possible, before the weekly reset.

As always, the changes above (with the exception of the Podtender fix) are a work in progress, and may differ before they go live. We’ll have the final tuning noted in our Hotfixes Update post next week.

    Glad to see Assassination Rogue get buffed, but was hoping Demonology locks would get a minor buff.

    Glad they're buffing weaker classes instead of nerfing stronger ones. Always feels better that way.

    this buff won't do anything for assassination... the problem with assassination is that they have too many things to maintain with the addition of slice and dice... it's just so slow to play it... by the time you get everything up, everything is already dead...

    Damn right...in PvP I end up without mana after 15-20 seconds. Mythics are really tough too mana wise.

    Are they trying to force WW Monks to go 2 handed or am I missing something here?

    As a sin rogue, i'm happy we get a buff, but this won't fix our problem, right now we have no burst damage, we take far too long before we start dealing full damage thanks to bullshit like SnD, our aoe is shit and so is our cleave, and it's not something that can be fixed with a fixed % increase to ALL our damage.

    I would love an 8% increse to our total ST damage but through buffing rupture/garrote, that way we are punished less by movment and our aoe and cleave increase at a more reasonable rate, we would need a redesign to fix our core issues like ramp up time.

    That means they will only be 16% worse than the best specs instead of 25%. Yikes.
