It was good while it was there :DDeath Knight: Howling Blast secondary target damage to 50% of primary target (down from 65%)
Still no fix for bears.
A lot of these changes make sense - Warrior damage as a tank was mostly ignoring Shield Slam unless you needed the rage and just using Revenge (glyphed) instead at higher stacks of Vengeance. But, alas, this is PvE tuning. Mages are already worryingly brutal before the PvP season starts in PvP when they get their burst going, and 2/3 of instant cast abilities going up by 40% is concerning - Living Bomb did seem a bit weak in PvP however, but Nether Tempest and Frost Bomb going up by that much is bound to ruffle a few feathers and cause a ton of pointless arguing before we even start seeing proper results in arena.
Is this legit? They didn't even take into account how bad this is going to break the pvp system. Mages are already REALLY strong. This 40% dmg buff is ridiculous. Looks like mages are FOTM again now....
that's nowhere near enough to make arcane mages viable again....
wish they would do something with balance druid in pvp and single target pve
Arcane mages rule all others. The trick is to have an ilevel of at least 502 or higher. If you are at or below 496, then frosty mages rule.
What is the problem with Blizzard! They keep giving damage buffs to all the classes that already top damage charts, while rogues who's damage is very low haven't gotten a single damage buff!
FUFUFUFUFU why such a strong nerf for affliction and demonology?that sucks. so much. i won't be able to be #1 on almost every fight this way -.-
Balance in PVP is probably still rough, but they gave us a 9% buff on every nuke for single target for 5.2 our single target is proving pretty competitive and our multitarget is great right now.
Remember that time people were happy with class changes? Lol yeah right...also on Shadow Word Pain and Howling Blast: Y u do dis?
And there goes my solo holy priest PvE potential..... sigh......
Ah the good ol' standby of "Buff Mages"Also, looks like you let a Div and HTML close tag slip through there Perc.
They need to hotfix the drop rate for primal eggs. Some people (and by some i mean a lot) are getting theirs way earlier than others, and that shouldnt happen too often.
Well, looking forward to being 2-shot by mages while trying to gear up my alts for PVP all over again.Oh, and of course looking forward to even worse dps when trying to do dailies, which I don't want to do anyway, as a Disc priest :D
