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.

    Class tuning by Blizzard will always remind me of this saying: “You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time.”


    Although, in every case with class tuning, it's "you can please some people some of the time, and absolutely enrage everybody else all of the time."

    Most people enraged the fact that some of the buff they are making is very underhanded. That %9 buff they do to frost mages solves nothing because it will be still %10 percent behind fire pretty much. It just takes it away from unplayable levels of bad to shit. Same with destro, they buffed the cb, but the spec is still garbage, demo is a bloody joke, fury warrior buff will be around %4 overall at best which is a fucking joke, sin buffs will be the same, which is a fucking joke.

    I am all for buffing weaker classes than nerfing good classes. Imo since content is cleared to a extent that buffing classes and tuning next raid according to that is infinately easier than make the raid then try to bring up dog shit specs up again.

    Like seriously, where is demo, destro, prot war, holy priest, survival, bm buffs. Where are they? They didn't do a tuning pass because of x-mas, which was 2 weeks to 3 weeks of fucking nothing and this tuning pass is actually bad. Im glad some of the specs at least got buffs but is not even enough, its way to underhanded.
