dont worry, they want shadow priest be OP again in SL, lets nerf warlocks like usual!
It’s deeper than a tuning issue. Both specs have struggled w/ poor design for a long time for similar reasons, but perhaps this could be a turning point in the right direction
They hit Shadow Priests hard with their self healing… they might hit like a truck but as on Beta their self healing is really Shadowmend+Flash Heal, DP and VT now no longer self heal… but on Warlocks it sucks the fire build is gone
Fun was detected and they could not allow that. Here’s hoping that they update us on the state of warlocks and push some changes the community will accept.
Hunter revive pet is now four seconds, warlock pets not changed
I doubt major changes are a wrap since shamans got some. Demo still needs help. An entire expansion of Nether Portal working the way it does is insane. Limiting talents to the FG is stupid when we don’t have a proper interrupt (axe toss is still crap). Inner demons and sacrificed souls need to just be baseline and replaced.
Oh I agree, I just really think what we got is what we’re getting. I’m still pushing and compiling as I’ve done, but save for something everyone mass reports as broken now that the changes are on the PTR, just don’t see it
Wait…so we’re not getting meta back?
Im hoping demo talents are so late because “in addition to helping demo, what better time than to introduce dressable demons!”
no? ok maybe demon stables.
I’m still holding onto the last major blue post on the warlock beta forums which said “more changes still to come” back when the axe toss change was made.
There’s still hope!!! They’ve been pretty amazing about listening to feedback and communication this alpha/beta phase so I still have some confidence we will get something pretty meaningful.
Yeah, i don’t mind the one UA per target thing but we should be able to have multiple UA’s active on different targets.
One hell of an understatement. It needs o be looked into not only from a number tuning perspective, but also mechanical.
I agree, I’m just not really good with the specifics. Like I personally don’t know HOW to fix it and change it, I just know it needs a lot of help/work.
Decimating bolt + Drain soul with buffs is looking nuts still.
Affi lookin good
Still waiting for the blue post and hope for something good for Demo, the spec got some good changes but not really big, nothing new. Maybe some pet changes
Maybe WARLOCK STABLES
go bump :V
I’d be a happy lock. Right now in PTR locks are really fun. Aff changes are awesome
Good. I freaking missed Affliction
Maybe make it a talent similar to the PvP one, that way it’s easier to balance. If they’re really so afraid of players not being able to juggle so many dots, a talent could also make us choose between multiple UA’s vs Siphon Life or vs Vile Taint etc
I wish they would change Demo Doom to be just a powerful DoT, maybe make it an upgrade of corruption at some point. Does alot over damage of 30 seconds with a change per tick to summon a random demon.
