wow they are buffing chaos bolt
why nerf howling blast?
Something Lore said on the forums:"We agree that Destruction is a bit low in 5.4. We also recognize that, particularly after the Kil'Jaeden's Cunning changes, Chaos Bolt has become a "riskier" spell to cast. To both ends, we think a Chaos Bolt buff is in order. We're going to bring it up by 15% and see where that puts things.Our general philosophy for Destruction in 5.4 is that casting Chaos Bolt can be tricky sometimes -- working around interrupts and LOS in PvP, or sneaking them in between periods of movement in PvE -- but when the cast goes off, it hurts. A lot. We do have to be careful not to push things TOO far, but we'll see how things go from here."
this is exactly what i was thinking as soon as i heard about the change to KJC well that and "WHAT ABOUT HUNTERS?" lol
Ok why the howling blast nerf, dks need the dps boost or was howling blast buffed already and they just reduced that buff from what it is on ptr?
What, people actualy move in pve! i thought they just stood there whether there is something under them or not :P. i can't see it being buffed for long. noobs wont like it at all practically being 1 shotted, once you got a few embers howl of terror, chaos bolt, fear, chaos bolt.
From what i'm seeing this is a buff right now the average hb does around 300to 400k dps and 200 or so on additional targets if im reading this right the base dps is 600k +attack power divided 0.738 and your attack power is based off your highest stat priority so its not a nerf they just calculated the 30% over all buff to hb in a previous ptr differently
