    Tooltip fix or actual nerfs for Arms PvE?

    Can anyone clarify if these are just tooltip fixes? I see a lot of changes on my tooltips but i'm not sure if these were already in prepatch?

    Prepatch -> postpatch

    Overpower - 120% -> 105% weapon damage
    Mortal Strike - 185% weapon damage plus 2,703 -> 175% weapon damage plus 2,693
    Slam - 215% weapon damage plus 2,144 -> 190% weapon damage plus 1,894
    Execute is different as well, I don't remember the exact tooltip value but it's definitely a good 10k+ lower on the tooltip compared to prepatch.

    Anyone able to clarify? Thanks

    It does not say anything about it in the patch notes so I am just going to assume it was a tooltip fix. I think I remember something about this a couple of weeks ago but I could easily be mistaken.

    These are just tooltip fixes. The effect/nerf was already in place several patches ago as a hotfix.

    Sounds like tooltip fixes from prepatch adjustments.

    this changes went live at september 25 (execute) / september 20 (the rest). so they are all just tooltip fixes.

    Out of curiosity, why does it take them so long to finally update the tooltips? It seems like it would be an easy put in being just text, but I also don't know anything about programming.

    Because tooltips cannot be hotfixed, they are stored in your local files, thus require a change of files (patch) on your side.

    Considering they probably dont do patches for just 1 file..
