In today’s new beta build, we’ve completed an update to Warlocks that should address a situation that has persisted since original Wrath of the Lich King.
- Demonic Pact will no longer overwrite an existing Demonic Pact buff, unless:
There are less than 10 seconds left on the buff (e.g. it has been up for 35 seconds or more).
- The spell power bonus of the new buff are higher than or equal to the power of the existing buff.
- The internal cooldown of Demonic Pact has been lowered to 5 seconds (was 20 seconds).
This compensates for the changes above and helps ensure that Demonic Pact is refreshing on your target before it expires with a similar consistency to before this adjustment.
