Damage reduction, healthstone healing, felguard fun... oh my. Kind of hope imps on dogs comes back. Chaos is what lock is all about, even if its comedy.
Everything is looking awesome besides that covenant ability (just hate it). However, it really loooks promising! I am hyped af <3
gaaah no destro changes yetback I go into my pit
Doesnt look that bad aswell not that fun tough no suprise the deff and life drain might be good also wonder if we can get info about (Demonic Inspiration and Wrathful Minion ) if this stacks or not I expect it dont but would be good to know if it doesnt stack how long is the duration for next haste and dmg buff for you pets
bring back KJC
Remove felguard specific abilities, for fel sake we asked for years for demonology that can be good and optimal with any demon.
I'm getting credit for the fated raids on LFR now
Soul conduit nerf? It needed a buff!
Hope the lack of DS as a talent means we're back to it being a baseline ability instead of an obnoxious talent that replaces Shadowbolt.Most of the talents look pretty solid - only ones that worry me are the Drain Life ones, they're the legendaries that have made affliction a drain oneshot spec in pvp instead of it's old rot gameplay and it leads to incredibly frustrating games where your entire gameplan revolves around getting one cast off - incredibly frustrating for the other team if you pull it off, incredibly frustrating for the warlock if you get kicked on it.
Dark Apotheosis or we riot
Disappointed and very upset if it will come to new expansion. Felguard again? Dogs again? Blizzard, are you still able in class design?
ok ok now we're cookin
New aff ability actually looks cool and interesting. Soul Conduit nerf is weird and questionable, honestly even 15% you barely felt the affects it probably just needs to be removed or reworked entirely.Demo looks like it might finally be moving away from Orphan Simulator so we can actually play as a demonologist hopefully actually interacting with our felguard a lot more.Lack of destro changes in this patch actually makes me excited because it was the spec that needed the most love by far, hoping for significant changes and additions or even a complete rework. Destro is clearly showing its age these days as all they've done is make small changes to ruin Xelnath's version over the years.
Seems like souls will be back for affliction! I hope this also means legion/bfa gameplay instead of this malefic rapture atrocity.
This doesn’t look bad but doesn’t look good. There’s something weird about it idk it feels a bit meh, idk… it looks like a pretty good looking food dish but taste like cardboard.
Pandemic invocation is a weird one.On one hand I can understand wanting to reward optimal refresh on dots. I suppose on single target it could add a little more depth and shard regen.On the other hand it requires a lot of attention to make the most of it, and it would not synergize well with dot extending mechanics such as darkglare and the current set bonus. And I really really hope affliction is keeping the dot extension from raptures. It has made the spec immensely more fun to me. Made it more fluid, it's a huge qol bonus effect.Excited to see a bunch of new and returning spells in any case !
General lock tree looks awful, outside of the fact theres a pretty good amount of passive DR in it and the inq gaze talent. Drain life healing has been great for aff in PvP(although still super easy to stop since you just have to kick the channel), but I dont see why there needs to be so many drain life talents(which will likely be mostly dead talents in pve). Rest of them are just very boring and/or weak. Ill reserve judgement on the talent trees until theyre actually out in full detail.
This sneek peek looks absolutly gorgeous. Warlock seems to get tanky again just like its supposed to be. Enormous cd reduction on both dark pact and unending resolve will help alot also i like the buffs to drain life so it doesnt feel so useless on other specs then affliction. It completly fits into the warlock class identity to leech from the enemys to empower themselves. Also sexy utility buffs like slow after fear or more health on healthstone. Soul conduit nerf is weird somehow.Affliction looks fun to me with the return of the legion artifact ability and pandemic invocation makes the spec somehow more risky but awards you with more dmg and soulstones.I would prefer if Demonology would get a return of metamorphosis but its probably asigned to dh. Dont know if i like the felguard abilitys though.Sadly no destro but will be fire for sure. I hope we get to play with shadowburn and soulfire more and pls dont let us spam rain of fire in the whole dungeon again.I play both pve and pvp and currently it seems to me, that almost every general warlock spell is there to help him in pvp though.
