    Potential War Within Pre-Patch Date, War Within Feedback - Warlocks

    Potential War Within Pre-Patch Event Date
    Tonight's beta build added a new splash screen with a July 30th start date for the pre-patch event. Keep in mind that this date hasn't been announced yet, so it may change. This would give players around 4 weeks to enjoy the pre-patch, which is in line with the recent previous expansions.

    This beta build contains several changes that have been implemented based off feedback we received over the past few weeks. Before we dive into those though, we wanted to thank you for the bug reports that have been sent in. We are continually working through those reports so expect fixes in this build and future builds.

    Without further ado, let’s get into some of the changes you’ll see for Warlock in this beta build.

    Demonology
    We’ve redesigned Doom to be passive, like the seasons 3 and 4 tier set bonus in Dragonflight. The primary reason for this change is to reduce the increased number of actions per minute we observed during playtesting. Additionally, Demonology has a lot of plates to spin as it is, and it felt that adding an additional cooldown to watch was a bit much.

    It is also because of this reasoning that we’ve removed the cooldown reduction for Power Siphon from Blood Invocation. Further, Blood Invocation caused a desync with most Demonology’s cooldowns.

    Destruction
    Summon Infernal has returned to the center of the Destruction tree to serve as a powerful cooldown for players to look forward to unlocking while leveling. We’ve returned Dimensional Rift to the third section as well with a new talent that adds cleave functionality to your rifts.

    To retain accessible pathing through the center section of the Destruction tree, we’ve had to remove Infernal Brand and condense Crashing Chaos and Rain of Chaos into a choice node.

    Thank you for the feedback and we will continue to keep an eye out for any further feedback and discussions.

    As expected the pre-patch comes a month before the expansion.

    pre-patch will hit well before remix ends, nice.

    Do note that that's a splash screen FOR the prepatch event itself. A splash screen that will require a patch to put in, thus the prepatch itself, the portions that include the warband, will come PRIOR to July 30th, such as a week earlier on July 23rd.

    It's actually more likely to be either the week of the 30th or 17th because of the awakened raid schedule - don't think they will want to interrupt the rotation.

    Why would they advertise for a future event coming July 30th on the same day they release said event? The way the splash reads indicates future event, and recent expansion history has shown they've released the systems patch a week or 2 before the events start up.

    Hence I also said the 17th? Again, I doubt they will interrupt the raid rotation.

    They probably didn't count on that when planning the times for remix. It's good enough it finish before TWW launch tho.
