I'm sad.  :(

I think Nether Tempest might be doing as much as 2 of our DoTs before the 50% cleave effect.  While NT is cleaving, it may do equivalent damage to an entire DoT stack?  Maybe only for Arcane?

im pretty sure your spec doesnt increase bomb damage anymore like it would have back in the day.

all bombs to equal damage per spec i think.

either way nt with the buff will prolly be doing more damage and cleaving.  putting nt up on all 3 targets if they get close to each other will do more damage for sure.

Oh, I thought Arcane mastery would increase NT damage?

i completely forgot about arcane mastery.  Im not sure how good mastery is for arcane for pvp though as the % is a lot smaller than frost/fire mastery.  So yea it still will be doing a minor damage boost as arcane, but its pertty much going to be better than lock dots as all specs most likely.
nvm: i'm retarded, you are going to be getting raped by arcane nether tempest, as it willbe doing about 30% more damage at close to 100% mana on top of the 40% buff.

so arcane nt will for sure be better, fire+frost nt will most likely still be better.


im just full of all kinds of misinformation apparently

buff mages nerf warlocks, blizzard might actually be retarded.
What this game really needs is a Duelist mount. It can be the same model as the Gladiator mount, but maybe have a gimpy leg and only be able to fly around in circles. I'd still ride it.

Mirror Image's Frostbolt hitting almost as much as Warlock DoTs.
True story.
I first thought I'll compare it to Water Elemental's damage, but that was pointless - Water Elementals hit harder.

warlock dots so op..

I love the fact that frost nova hits for as much.

I also feel like it's a big problem that warlock dots tick every other second instead of every third like they used to and other classes dots do. It reduces the burst and makes the damage seem less effective.

It's sad, I feel like playing my warlock again but I disagree so much with blizzards decision to design the class to be some extreme aoe-pressure class without any real effective damage.

There used to be a time where warlock dots were scary and a fully dotted team would actually rot.

Fuck soul swap.

Totally agree.
The whole point of our class is to be able to pressure down our opponent with DoTs, right now we're completely unable to do it. We're not able to drop our opponent's health at all if the healer isn't afk.
why? It's simple. DoTs hit for about as much as in Cata while health pools are about 4 times higher, plus they removed Shadowbite (which could crit up to 30k - on 115Kish health pools!) and instant Shadow Bolts from Nightfall proccs.
Summing it up: Let's say MoP health pool of a PvP geared char is about 400k HP. Our DoTs hit for about 3-7k each (crit up to 15kish). Haunt hits about 25-30k. How are these numbers meant to do anything relevant? especially with how strong healing is in the game now...
Whoever designed Warlock for MoP ruined the class for PvP completely. The mechanics are awful, even in PvE it hardly makes any sense to endlessly Sb:Soul Swap and Drain Soul to retain full Shards again. Seems just like a very odd way to balance a class...
Only solution is to remove Soul Swap and buff DoTs by significant amount. Possibly redesign Nightfall as well.
