I have no idea where the hell to view these constantly updated PTR notes. Anyone mind giving me a link? I'd like to see what the casting circle nerf is. I love Destro and a buff would be the only thing to get me to play Warlock right now. The Demo playstyle feels very... aidsy.

Casting Circle Honor Talent 5% of Base Mana 0.5 sec cast 30 sec cooldown Requires Warlock

Summons a Casting Circle for 10 sec. While within the casting circle, the duration of silence and interrupt effects are reduced by 70%. Limit 1.

Unlocked at honor level 22

 

 

Which is alright, the retard version that we have now shouldn't be in the game.

Same nerf going to the shaman immune to kick talent and if I were to guess, Burning Determination is going to get the same thing.

Hmm interesting, I think that's alright. I suppose it will stack with both lock and resto sham default kick resistance, like orc + relentless. So a 4 sec kick would be about 4 x 0.3 x 0.7 ~ 0.8 sec lockout.

I am orc lock playing with relentless but 0,8 sec lockout at 90% casted CBs is still a interrupt while your blood fury, cb speed buff and maybe soul harvest will running out. It also means you can be ALWAYS interrupted while standing in your pve circle if they got enough windshear and other kicks up.

New havoc "curses the ground" and is not a target spell anymore. Thats pve shit. Who will stand on that fucking ground? Its like the actual WL MS called "Fel Fissure" which will be removed from game because the usage was 0,00001% of the playerbase and this player misclicked.

I'm playing Demo since WoD, (I know that isn't a lot of time) and I'm missing my oneshots from demonbolts :(
Was hard to connect but once I could throw a few demonbolts was so rewarded because of the potential game change that comes from that spell.

Right now I'm still playing demo, but its not the samething, the implosion spec seems so boring, and I'm considering reroll destro in this next patch. I hope destro becomes viable with CB spec.

 

Is there a place that I can check all warlock's changes that will come in this new patch?

Hmm well we posted all destro pvp balance relating changes in this thread. The summary on wowhead has a lot of "spell xy changed because you can obtain it now on level 18 instead of level 22" -> http://www.wowhead.c...ch-notes-music-

Sorry to bring this up again, but for pvp, what route do you guys suggest for artifact power for destro, at least to get started? Would hate to have to respec those talents

I think going for Dimension Ripper golden trait first and picking up the 2 minor traits that modify Chaos Bolt along the way would be best. Good synergy with the honor talent that doubles Chaos Bolt damage

Destro Changes:

NEW Unending Resolve   Unending Resolve's cooldown is reduced by 90 sec.

Plus the artifact trait (Demonic Durability: Reduce the CD of Unending Resolve's in 30 sec) the CD will be only 1 min, so, we still can sacrifice one of our def CD's to us as "aura mastery".

It seems for me that CB spec in 7.1 will be viable, considering that we'll have 1 min aura mastery, more tank and we'll be more mobile, thanks to demonic circle.

What you guys think?

I think destro is going to be insanely op in 7.1 with these talent changes. Either jump around spam instant immolates and shadowburns doing infinite dps, or spec chaos bolt and spam 800k bolts for days.

What if I told you, you can stop it? Btw it's during his cooldowns, with dark soul etc. You dont stay in front of a frost mage standing still while he spams fb with iceform, into Glacial. (That can hit 1mill+ too)

I don't mind at all if some classes have powerful casted burst damage.

At least you can play around Chaos Bolt, the damage is telegraphed ahead of time and you can stop it.

I don't want every class to be designed that way, but it's nice to have SOME variation to the standard Legion meta of "deal insane amounts of constant and basically unstoppable damage until the other healer can't keep up anymore".

I think it depends if you are going to play Focused Chaos or Cremation. The other alternative would be to go for the Conflagration of Chaos golden trait, pick up Demonic Durability and then go for Burning Hunger and Impish Incineration. At only 20 artifact traits you would have pretty much every talent that would be useful for that spec.
