Kil'jaeden's Cunning no longer increases the cast time of the spell.

Affliction
Soul Swap (Affliction) - Soulburn: Applies Corruption, Unstable Affliction and Agony without removing them from a target.



Those changes look like a good start actually

The soul swap thing is entirely for PvE execute phase, so that it works properly with Pandemic- it's about as close as you can get to irrelevant in PvP

Do you use the PvP on-use trinket with Dark Soul? I know that's stating the obvious, but my CBs are pretty reliably 170k (180k on bad geared).

Then a few of these happen every now and again;

Saying 170k chaos bolts are fine because you can interrupt it, is like someone saying stampede is fine because you can just fear/shadowfury the pets.

They should reduce the damage but reduce the cast time as well. Reduce damage by like 25-35% but make it a 2.25 base cast.

think we would be okay with this.

and it is not the same thing ccing stampede and interrupting chaos bolt, chaos bolt can be interrupted by many things that every single class have, such as interrupts, ccs, stuns what have you, it can be interrupted by grounding totems, reflects and simply moving behind the pillar, its like being hit by a mage casting pyro. If you are hit by a chaos bolt in a game you probably have made a mistake.

stampede can be feared, stunned etc by certain classes, and even then the duration is 20 seconds so they will have enough uptime to kill you afterwards.

another thing is to get chaos bolt out you need embers, you need to position well and you need to really read the game, to get a stampede out you just click it and go afk.

I don't really want to flame some us paladin with no titles whatsoever on warlock forums for no reason but when you compare chaos bolt to stampede you kinda ask for it.

170k? I literally don't go over 140k with cd's, i've had a 170k before but it was very situational, and i assume it was through mistake.

Conflag crits that hard with cooldowns up.

I hate the quad damage style of Warlock that MoP gave us.  :(

Apparently there isn't a warlock in this thread who has realized chaos bolt damage increases with crit chance xD

you guys just don't get it, chaos bolt is fucking shit, it will never be viable if they don't reduce the cast time.
Even if chaos bolt can hit for 10000000 millions, will still be shit.

you queue a destro ?

1) right click him on gladius
2) you see that big chaos bolt cast when the destro used demon soul + on use every 2 min? (ye, chaos bolt hit for shit without cd)
3) use whatever spell you have, cc, cs or you can EVEN LOS IT.

complain about destro in bg/rbg, that's "fine", complain about destro in arena, you're bad, sorry.
interrupt or los a chaos bolt every 2 mins is fucking easy.

yes we are all dumb, cheers for telling us the mechanics of our classes .....................................................
its hard to stay calm here when readin so many trolls :)

in the future whenever i see screens like that i will just counterpost with 40-60k icelance spam, because it seems like thats all people seem to react


and again my friends
hardly any warlock justifies it, neither do i
but they cant take stuff like that away without making major changes in any other regards
and as long as those changes arent out i never want to see big nerfs/changes to one of the most stupid spell a warlock has ever had

so can we please just calm down until all the changes are out? i would appreciate it, as reading soo much keeps me from working
and my boss hates when i say "sorry bro couldnt finish the project, had to troll on aj"
