Stop making dots require boost spells to do damage. By themselves, Im watching players passively heal through a stack of dots. Stop making them depend on things like haunt, MR and other spells to make them work. Other classes have dots that actually do damage without any other requirement, but not the only class that is CENTERED and DESIGNED around dots?
Stop making Affliction play like all the other dps classes out there that have to use burst windows. Affliction should NEVER be a burst class, yet each expansion, you make them more and more bursty.
Why is a class meant to be slow to damage build up, have less survivability than the current iteration of a mage? Why? Warlocks, Affliction Warlocks, should be the tankiest caster in game and they are not currently. They have no real mobility to speak of, yet can’t take a melee player inside of their burst window. Why? Please fix this. Affliction players don’t want to be glass canons. That’s not the history of this class anyway, it’s just the direction you are taking them. You guys have no problem with fury warriors, with their absurd burst, also being in the top 5 in heals in BGs, but for some reason, Affliction shouldnt survive a global?
Whatever your ethos for Affliction currently is, it needs to change.
