#3861414 Nether Tempest and Warlocks

Posted Nadagast on 14 March 2013 - 03:12 AM

Apparently Mages are now better Warlocks than Warlocks are...

A single cleaving Nether Tempest hits for about 85% of the damage of a full stack of Warlock DoTs.


NT Avg Hit: 3469  http://i.imgur.com/C72nwAF.png
NT Avg Cleave Hit: 1819   http://i.imgur.com/u8TgZ0P.png

Corruption: 3431  http://i.imgur.com/85x1Tgd.png
Agony: 4119   http://i.imgur.com/r2dpHpS.png
UA: 5439   http://i.imgur.com/1PymEr7.png

Average total NT DPS: 3469+1819 = 5288
Average Warlock DoT DPS: (3431+4119+5439)/2 = 6494

Add in ~5% more crit for the Mage, and we're at 5552 Nether Tempest DPS vs 6494 Warlock DoT DPS.

That's 85% of a full DoT stack on a single spell which always only takes one global to apply, procs ~70k instant nukes, and is not even really a Mage's main form of attacking.  I would say the situation is pretty ridiculous right now...  Note that these numbers are from an RBG where I was able to spend more than my regular armount of shards under a spellpower increasing effect, which means in an arena the numbers would be even more favorable to Nether Tempest.

#3860611 Corruption nerf, hotfix.

this is seriously unbelievable..
Our dots already hit INSANELY low. dk diseases do more dmg than our dots in comparison. What the actual fuck, I'm speechless.  Not to mention the Frost Bomb buff just as the season starts. Well done, Ghostcrawler; ruin the game for us. I would actually understand removal of Soul Swap and buffing DoTs by 20-30%, but this? So unexpectable.
Warlocks are already ruined, why not just let them sink - I guess that's what they thought.
I guess that's just an another PvE change, which ruins the class for us.

Am i even playing the same game? Warrior damage seems fucking insane, have you even tried bladestorm lol.
Unpeelable swiftymode which ticks for around 40-50k with mastery proccing out of the ass.

Try out stormbolt with bladestorm or just run shockwave,stormbolt and have a crap ton of annoying CC.
Yes we get tunneled but didn't we in s10/11? All it means is there might be a way to counter/beat scumcomps like KFC. I for one am very pleased with the changes though the overpower one is a little harsh we will be more than fine in 3v3 with comps like WMD/WLHealer.
Just chill with the knee jerk reactions and play some wargames with decent people and you will find you will do just fine.

Edit: Dstance for prot is still 25percent btw and prot feels great for next season flag running lol.

#3856236 How Reckful got carried to his second R1 title this season

Posted Apsco60 on 04 March 2013 - 10:06 AM

First off i want to say Reckful, Talbadar, and Kollektiv are some of the best players in the game let alone their own class. They inevitably deserve rank one on any bg. However, when Reckful hits rock bottom @ 2280 he had a God Comp, Volkanyx, Talbadar, and Sodahz play on his team during prime time all day in order to establish a rank one placement. Roughly around 3 A.M with Kollektim and Soda offline Talbadar and Reckful are seen in arena. Via stream

Now let me ask you a question, they have spent all day leveling the team with God Comp for Reckful so why at 4:00 am would they abandon Kollectiv and Soda, arguably two of the best healers in the game for some random duelist shaman?


A shaman that is inevitably a carry who has no titles. Not only is this a carry shaman but they put this shaman on the team to avoid facing the KFC and TSG who were predominant on the ladder because no one knew he existed. This would allow them to dodge any possible counters when Reckful began his journey to catch up in PR. As far as my team goes (KFC) there is no point even trying when one of the worlds best god comps can continuously que for 14 hours straight. Theoretically sniping us with Fire God comp while playing RPS when we are offline. Of course we will never know because we never stooped to that level. Once we saw what was happening and what was needed to achieve R1 we simply stopped. No this isn't a thread about us not getting r1 but, instead this is about them waiting until 4:am to play with a non glad shaman for Reckful's R1 team. If you honestly don't believe this is a pilot ahem* Cdew / Kollektiv then you must have alternative motives. Its time to truly see if Blizzard treats well known players as well as the average one. As in if you violate the rules a.k.a T.O.S you should pay the penalty. What do you think?
