Thoughts:

pets are now instant cast baseline with no cd, but will cost a shard. finally if you ask me.
doomguard and infernal are going to be 3min cd, but will only last 20 secs and cost a shard. shouldnt cost a shard IMO.
unfortunately, unending resolve is still in the game.
fortunately, soul swap is gone. dark intent is too, but no one really cares.
there's a talent to instantly refill all 5 soulshards. looks interesting to me.
mana tap talent is just bad. please dont.
not sure how soul effigy is supposed to work. promote multidotting even for single-target dmg?
sad that cataclysm, GoSac and GoSu still exist.
shadowfury 1.5sec cast. ok what????
soul link demo only. not sure about that.

Affli:
from the start i already dont like the talents. focusing on dot duration or dot dmg without any interesting gameplay involved just makes it boring at best, or bad for the game at worst. only interesting talent in there is the SoC one.
haunt changed to a nuke. uhh please no, that's destro's job.
UA dot will stack like ignite and dev plague. looks promising but will have to ajust dispel dmg to be fixed regardless of stacks to prevent either being fucked by wasting 5 soulshards with little backlash dmg or instant killing the dispeller.

Demo:
shadow bolt is listed as instant cast. bug?
talents look promising overall.
demon bolt will now replace shadow bolt and increase dmg per active demon. interesting, but will have to ajust dmg for each type of demon since some are easier to sumon or outnumber others.
dont like that mastery buffs a spell rather than active all the time. will make the talent that makes it buff all pets rather than just 3 mandatory.

Destro:
wreak havoc looks ridiculously OP.
besides chaotic energy i hate every destro talent.
rain of fire 2 sec cast. lol wat.
shadowburn now a talent. looks mandatory to me...
fuck that mastery.

Shadow bite is going to do 50% increased damage for each dot you have on the target again. thats kinda cool i guess.

Its back to removing dots from original target to apply to new target i'm pretty sure.

overall though, the warlock changes look really really fun imo, very happy with them.

- PvP talents look interesting-
- CoT/CoW making a comeback it seems
- Borrowed Souls almost seems obligatory to pick for being useful in PvP for Affliction.
- Affliction is losing Shadowfury and HoT is triggered automatically on low health, seems we have to go for MC now
- Improved Backlash + Imp. Chaos Bolt + Burning Embers gives 1 sec CB's almost permanently
- Healing for Destro seems to be gone

Pretty happy with all the changes so far, especially seeing curses making a comeback. The only thing left on my wishlist is an ability that can slow people

I'm happy that we can pick a curse, but the Legion curse setup is infinitely worse than past curse setups. It should be a lesson on how much expectations have fallen when we feel happy to get a single curse. It's very frustrating that curses are not an integral part of the baseline Warlock class. (Likely because curses are hard to make work in raiding :/)

just wish they swapped CoT with CoEx.
slow-casting is just not fun for anyone.

You're forgetting the Artifact dot as well, although thats a 45s CD dot so I doubt it will be that big of a deal.

remember that healers will be the only specs that can even dispel curses, so vs mages/dps shamans etc your curses will always stick for their full duration :(

No because the difference is when I play a comp i play it close to skill cap

if anyone needs to be banned, it's you. You do nothing but sit on AJ being a passive aggressive idiot that nobody likes, sorry you stink of washing up liquid.

Feel free to call me an idiot because I'm a hunter or some stupid ass remark but I've actually written all this down on paper

I actually made an appearance at DH2014 and I met up with people from twitch who were involved with the dota 2 / cs tournies that where there, I talked about the game from my perspective as a professional player and we actually shared a lot of opinions. All I'm saying is a lot of people will be VERY surprised about the future of this game in the esport world :)

kk writing it down because im gonna use this tactic once in a bo3 in next blizzcon

korean swap: curse of fragility on swap target (who is already freshly dotted) -> fear to proc nightmares -> soulswap new dots on him -> fear to proc nightmares again = probably dead assuming im playing with a mongo class

When your Unstable Affliction expires, it has a 25% chance to reapply itself.
