Changes in 7.2
Patch 7.2 does not bring many changes to Destruction Warlock. Please feel free to visit my Youtube channel for more information from time to time.
Celumbra, the Night's Dichotomy
is a new craftable legendary.
Pillars of the Dark Portal
gained haste on top of other stats.
now gives a 2% haste buff and 10% movement speed buff passively, the proc mechanic is unchanged.
gained crit on top of other stats and now standing still for 6 sec grants you Foresight, allowing you to cast while moving for 4 sec. This duration begins when you start moving (used to be 8 seconds and 5 seconds).
Not an item change, but your Legendary Bad Luck Protection is now spec specific. Class-wide Legendary items count for all specs in this form of Bad Luck Protection.
New Artifact knowledge ranks up to 50.
All basic relics go to 4/4 instead of 3/3.
The 20/20 paragon trait has been split into two traits, one thats a 5% and one thats a 10% increase.
Flames of Sargeras
Increases the damage of Conflagrate by 8%, this trait has 4 ranks.
When Chaos Bolt damages a target afflicted by Havoc, it explodes, dealing (100% of Spell power) damage to enemies within 8 yards.
Dimensional Rift can now summon a powerful Flame Rift.
Concordance of the Legionfall
This is essentially a trinket proc for your artifact. The first point can NOT be picked up until you get the rest of your basic artifact traits to 4/4.
There were no talent adjustments this patch
There is new tier gear, but the set bonuses are not finalized, and the Tomb of Sargaras raid will not be out for a few months, so they will not be covered for the time being. For now focus on Nighthold!
