Affliction
  • Drain Soul Drains the soul of the target, causing [ 417 + 37.5% of Spell Power ] Shadow damage every 2 sec and energizing one Soul Shard after it deals damage twice. If the target dies and yields experience or honor, three Soul Shards are energized. Lasts 12 sec. If the target is at or below 20% health when Drain Soul deals damage, it deals 100% additional damage and causes all of your other periodic Affliction damage effects to instantly deal 100% of their normal periodic damage. Warlock - Affliction Spec. 1.5% of Base Mana, plus 1.5% per sec. 40 yd range. Instant (Channeled).
  • Soulburn: Soul Swap (New) Grants the Soulburn empowerment to your Soul Swap. Soul Swap will instantly apply your Corruption, Unstable Affiction, and Agony to your current target without requiring them to be removed from a previous target. Warlock - Affliction Spec.

    How I understand the Drain Soul part, it'll simply fix the bug where u can abuse it against Shadow Apparitions. However, I'm not quite sure about the new Soulburn: Soul Swap. Will it require DoTs on one target to be able to use the spell?

Why aren't they actually fixing the real problems with warlocks?

The mmo patch patch notes make no sense for most classes. I suggest you wait for the official ones.

did they actually make it so you can't drain soul pets for shards..
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.

I feel like it was a retarded mechanic tbh, especially with the Shadow Apparitions bug, but if they don't compensate it with more DoT dmg Afflicion will have to be worst spec to ever be in the game.

Why not make take out the retarded mechanic of instantly applying dots, and instead make it so you have get them up manually like before, but make them do actual damage.  As it is now, locks seem like they have no problem with getting their dots up, just seems like they do zero damage.

the real problem is that affliction locks die almost instantly to any popular composition. Compounded by the fact that they do little more than tickle their target outside of demon soul. Fix survivability, slightly fix damage, reduce shadowpriest/hunter/mage dominance.

playing warlock x x without an spriest or mage (heck even wth those its garbage)

and then playing either some hunter anchored cleave, shadowpriest x x, or dare i say god comp.... its like playing a different game.

I doubt they will buff up.

Official Blizzard Quote:

5.2 should play out some answers to that. Locks feel well-designed/balanced, but not quite competitive [yet].
Hard to say if the issue is locks needing buffs or other classes needing nerfs though.
