Okay, so played against a bunch of Affliction Warlocks tonight. Pretty... Unimpressive damage across the board?

Well... That is until this happened:

http://imgur.com/a/4DEx5

I know it's difficult to tell, but that's Corruption I'm highlighting there. His other DOTs are also hitting RIDICULOUSLY hard.

To give you accurate numbers (these are averages):

Corruption: 56,154
Siphon Life: 67,034
Unstable Affliction (2 stack): 129,138
Agony: 37,445
Drain Life: 100,422

Those are TICKS. Not damage over full duration, TICKS.

So this is where I'm confused. This warlock did 260k DPS. He literally was killing our entire team <30s after the gates opened.

Compared to this Warlock:

That is once again, Corruption.

What's the deal with the damage difference?

EDIT: Whether or not this is a bug is pretty irrelevant, I'm curious if there's an actual mechanic that makes this happen.

Okay I give up actually looking at that.

I don't see anything that magically increases Corruption/SL/Agony damage by almost 500% :P

Spriest/Rshaman.

The other lock was also playing Shadowplay.

EDIT: I promise you the spriest did almost 0 damage. Our healer would heal one of us and die in 3-5 seconds. Details claims the Shadow Priest did 0 damage to the healer both games this happened.

EDIT2: I apologize if it seems like I'm trying to turn this into a witch hunt. I'm just genuinely confused at the damage difference here.

Lock artifact traits are pretty big damger. Maybe the other plebs had lvl 1 artifacts?

Reap Souls is the big swofty since it doubles every artifact traits effect. http://www.wowhead.c...6698/reap-souls

These are his artifact traits during Reap Souls:

+20% increased dmg (wrath of consumption)
+10% shadow dmg
+24% agony dmg
+24% corruption dmg
+20% crit damage for agony, corruption, drain life, unstable affliction

Also, the shaman probably dropped Skyfury Totem for +30% increased crit damage, and the warlock could have had really good rng with crits

edit: oh wait, only 5 of his corruption ticks were crits? maybe all of his other dots critted? :eek: IDK

The shaman never played his character lol. Like literally sap->kidney->sheep->we were dead.

As for the spriest, he did less damage than me or the Mage.

Like I said, I played against a lot of warlocks.

Can anyone do an arena and test their numbers versus this? I'm getting more and more confused now lol.

That is super weird. Did you look to see if he had any random buffs? I.e. 300% buff from one of those world arenas? That's honestly the only thing I can think of.

I mean... I can't be 100% sure he didn't, but after a brief inspection, no he did not.

Also you can see just Corruption alone equated to 50k DPS.

And those numbers? Legit 20s of combat, 6 of which he wasn't playing (2x cheap shot).


So I'm not insane, there's some voodoo going on here?

Ya that's why it has to be an exploit of some kind if I had to guess. The only thing I can think of is maybe he waited in that arena in the cave and waited until the last second to take the q and grabbed one of those buffs that increases your damage done by a fuck ton I'm not sure.

I'm not at my desktop at the moment but I'll check his buff uptime.

The first and second time we lost I moused over his buffs and never saw anything suspicious at all.

This can't be done with Affliction atm if it's not some kind of a bug/exploit. Affliction dmg isn't that good atm.

My guess is he found a way to stack artifact traits, in that battleground screenshot he has 3.8m HP (1.5M more than me). Since the more traits you have = more stamina and damage, it would make sense

On a side note, on his armory it says he has 4 million health o.O

I think I agree with the artifact stacking. Some kind of bug, surprised it's just now surfacing however.
