The famous ‘crabby blue’ has heard the wave of tears coming, and decided to address it before Blizzard get washed away by it all.
"We have finished a fairly comprehensive look at the dps of various classes and specs and are concerned that warlock dps isn’t quite where it should be. It’s not abysmal by any means, but we think it should be a little higher.
To give warlocks a little extra nudge in PvP, we increased Soul Link up to 20% from 15%. You may already have this change.
In PvE, overall, we just think a lot of classes benefited from getting the warlock buffs a little more than the locks benefited from getting everyone else’s buffs. So we decided to just buff lock damage across the board (which will also help in PvP somewhat). Rather than change damage and coefficients of a lot of different ranks of spells, we just inflated talents that we were almost certain you’d already have. Shadow Mastery, Demonic Tactics and Emberstorm were all increased by 1% per rank for 5% total.
Let us know how that feels. The changes should go live before Nov 13."
Merry Christmas, apologies for the coal left in your stocking by mistake. <3 Ghostcrawler
OK, for those of you who do not know (can’t remember if I mentioned it), I will be away for the next few days in Canberra. I may squeeze out a post tomorrow, but that is a very slight possibility. There may be some guest posts popping up, there may not. I may put some photos from my trip up while I am away, I may not. All very dependent on a) whether I can get a hold of a good WP app for my phone, and b) whether I take any pictures. You may get lots of silly piccies of The Carillon, The War Memorial, perhaps the national museum and stinky old Parliament House, which I will be oh so tempted to infiltrate and cause havoc. Maybe some photos from Floriade as well if it is on.
Have fun with your break from the evil lockiness!
Stuck for something to read while I am gone?
Here is some of my favourite reading from the past couple of days:
1. Euripedes offers his insight into the fun that is the forums.
2. Horns discusses some old and new Warlock issues in PvP
3. Nightravyn channels some Richard
4. K discusses the conundrum of character achievements with multiple mains
5. Bre gets a portrait of someone close to her heart
