    Upcoming PvP Tuning Changes for January 26

    Upcoming PvP Tuning Changes for January 26

    Player vs. Player

    • Players now deal 20% less damage to Death Knight, Hunter, and Warlock pets.
    • In 2v2 Arenas, Dampening will begin at 20% when both teams have either a tank or healer.
    • Druid
    • Mage
      • Triune Ward (legendary) now provides 50% effective barriers (was 65%) in PvP situations.**
      • Fire
    • Paladin
      • Holy
        • Divine Favor (Honor Talent) cooldown increased to 30 seconds (was 25 seconds), and now increases cast speed by 30% (was 60%).
      • Protection, Retribution
        • Word of Glory’s healing has been reduced by 20% in PVP situations.

    As always, we’ll post updates if we make changes to the changes, and the final adjustments will appear in our hotfixes update soon after they go live.

    if you only got that rating due to skills being so strong they got nerfed, and you can't keep the rating after, you never should have had that rating to begin with

    Word of Glory nerf was needed. Self heal was insane

    They took care of a couple absurd outliers but there's so much more that could be done. This is how we know there's like 1 person working on this game that we're supposed to pay for every month.

    Worst possible choise for holy paladin nerf. How the fuck is pala supposed to keep people alive without favor cast time.

    I can't wait to see how MMO-C's arm chair game developers look at these changes and assume that since they didn't completely overhaul the entire fucking game in a hotfix that there is nobody at Blizzard who knows how to read.

    Fuck, guess I was too late.

    If only those dastardly Blizzard devs consulted you personally for every change they make to the game maybe we'd have a game worth playing!

    Took them long enough. Better later than never I guess.

    Finally. I really enjoyed getting Full Mooned for 28k on the first tick of Convoke.

    Not remotely true.


    Not only is that not remotely true % wise, WoG isn;t even the thing that needs nerfing, it's the Healing Hands talent... WoG's base value is actually pretty tame already, it's only when Healing Hands comes into cinsideration that it becomes a problem... They nerfed the wrong damn thing, and now Healing Hands is mandatory for WoG to not be trash, they just killed every other talent on that row and cemented HH as the only viable talent to pick there.
    A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don’t have one, you’ll probably never need one again.

    Yes, hence why many people have been upset with the current tuning before these nerfs.

    please don't suggest balance changes unless you're a high rated player (1500+)

    Yes, because anybody who doesn't call Blizzard incompetent from the safety of their warm keyboards is immediately, by definition, an apologist.

    High rated....1500+.....?

    I’m happy with these changes. I was worried they would over-nerf abilities. I like the small incremental changes, I just wish they could make changes more frequently. The 2’s dampening change is excellent, should cut down on how long games last in 2’s.
