The nerfs to most skills are really 13.75%, not 25% dmg.
The General changes apply everywhere, for PVE and PVP (Unless otherwise specified), getting mostly 15% buffs across the board there.
then on PVP that change you get 25% reduced effectiveness in PVP.
So, its 115% of current damage transformed into new base damage, then nerfed by 25% in PVP, leaves you with 86.25% of current damage.
That is 13.75% nerf
Strong, but not nearly as strong as a 25% nerf.
Do not believe me ? watch this for Evoker for example
If those were only PVE buffs, they would all say the same as Fire Breath, instead only Fire Breath says doesnt apply for PVP, same with the last 3 destro lock changes, otherwise if not specified its base damage increase, works for pve and pvp.
So for priests you get
This buffs first…
Also, look the dev notes, it says " we are looking to offset recent PvE buffs", because they apply everywhere.
So only nerfs for Mind Blast and DP, are really strong (and 13.75%).
Other skills like Void Turrent are even getting a flat out 15% increased damage.
