nether protection nerf is reasonable but there is no buff to compensate

I am just fucking speechless....this is the most retarded set of changes ever.

Other then the Sburn buff...this is fucking retarded beyond belief LOL.

These are all attempts to increase its PvE damage....

however all of these things KILL destruction.

1) conflag consuming immolate is HORRIBLE!
2) Nether protection nerf is fine but we NEED buffs not nerfs to compensate
3) FnB change and Conflag Glyph change are soo stupid

Blizzard has down syndrome

Wouldn't count on it, considering 3.1 was supposed to be a buff.

Pretend you are in a tunnel and the only way out is through the first thing you tab targeted.

only thing i agree with is the sburn damage buff (tho it wont be much)

Nether protection NEEDED a nerf (mage armor also needs one but where is mage armors nerf????)

but now that nether prot is nerfed it NEEDS to be UNDISPELLABLE!!!!

i dont get it. i can't really complain about the dumb nether prot nerf... but are destro locks really that good? from what i've seen they're about where they should be in pve and overall mediocre in pvp.

their damage is insane, but you can counter it in many ways, dispeling immolate and shit, I prefer aff locks then destro ones cause it's a rng game where they can dish out 10k+ damage in chaos bolt+conflag. I know it's hard for them but it just looks stupid and feels like fighting mage, not to mention the new fmage/dlock/shaman trend

The only thing I can agree with is the nether protection change. Most of the other changes fall into the category of flat out pvp ineptitude. Blizz doesn't know what to do with this class for pvp. They constantly try to buff or dumb down the pve rotation which in turn shits on how we do in pvp.

Watch these 'buffs' fall through. They said they wanted to compensate pve damage with the conflagrate nerf. This is how they're doing it - by expecting pvp locks to cast more with melee on their dicks.

I kind of half expected this TBH. I'm sure we've all 2 shot retards plenty of times. Every time I 100-0 a DK who doesnt use like the 15 different options of stopping it I just imagine him crying his eyes out about how overpowered destro is. Sadly these kinds of players make up the bulk of the WoW population

Hopefully affliction will get something out of this, destro was really only fun for me freecasting on bads on BGs.

their damage was high ya, but even then they were far from unmanageable. really hope they know what they're doing with these changes.

It's better PR if they announce "Nerfs-> then Buffs" than "Buffs-> then Nerfs"

nether protection is the only thing that justified mage armor being the way it is (and its still way too good) but now its just hilarious they havent touched it yet. also making immolate even harder to keep up is the most stupid shit
