The ptr (30669) changed damage budgeting, I wrote a detailed post in the other thread but will summarize here.
- Frost Strike damage up
- BOS damage down
- Chill Streak redesigned (based on AP not enemy HP)
- Icecap improved
These are good changes (by theory at least) as they improve balance between the last tier talents- this will need some testing to see what impact it has in reality.
Can we have a blurb on why Chill Streak was redesigned? Was it just for the inclusion of the Conflict and Strife essence?
Still uneasy about dps DK utility; this may resolve itself based on encounter design. But it is still difficult to make the argument of under what circumstances would you want bring a dps DK over say a DH, monk or rogue?
