  • Nether Protection reduced to 30% damage reduction, down from 60%.
  • Shadow and Flame: Now also includes Shadowburn.
  • Fire and Brimstone: No longer increases the damage of your Immolate spell, but now increases the bonus damage your Incinerate deals to targets afflicted by your Immolate by 6/12/18/24/30%.
  • Conflagrate updated: Consumes an Immolate or Shadowflame effect on the enemy target to instantly deal damage equal to 12 seconds of your Immolate, or 8 seconds of your Shadowflame.
  • Glyph of Conflagrate redesigned: When you use Conflagrate, the damage done by your next 3 Destruction spells is increased by 10% for 15 seconds if the Immolate on the target has 5 or fewer seconds remaining.

Huge nerf to Conflag damage/nether protection and the utility of the Conflag glyph. No buffs to compensate PvP, yet at least.

that will seriusly hinder destruction as a viable spec in my opinion. but on the brigt side, it means they have to buff us after.

and maybe just maybe they will buff affliction. just maybe.

They're so failing, instead of nerfing the classes that actually deserve a nerf, they're doing some nonsense.

the FUCK

doing enough damage before a warrior/ret pally/dk kills myself or my partner is op.

on a side note, because i need a good chuckle: how many of you have experienced the awesome phenomenon of killing gladiator ret pallies multiple games in a row before they bubble? yesterday while playing 3's, we would sap this pally, open on him, and kill him every time before bubbling.

I've come to the conclusion that blizzard has no idea how the Warlock class is supposed to function.

well 1 thing i can think of is conflagarate should hit a little harder with this change IF they remove the 30% penalty and just make it deal damage equal to 12 seconds. If they keep the 30% penalty and make it 12 seconds its going to be worthless.

Nether prot falls into the same category as mage armor: stupid, yes, but until destro got some of its other issues addressed (no dispel protection on immolate for one) it probably didn't need to get changed.

Also, I wouldn't say affliction is "pretty fuckin good". I'd say it still works.
