Class changes related to the latest build of Patch 7.1.5.

Not all class changes can be viewed via datamining. In order to make up for various nerfs, sometimes, Blizzard decides to buff a an entire specialization. This is done via Auras and specialization auras will increase the damage output of several abilities at once which makes tuning easier. For example in the latest Build 23244, some Legendary items have been nerfed and we've also got some class changes. To make up for all that, some specializations have seen a flat % increase to all damage/healing done.

Why are they listing set bonus changes for a set that doesn't even exist yet?

This is also the first time I've ever heard of 'spec auras' - interesting.

Wow, this still doesn´t solve any problems with DK. They nerf legendary we can´t be able to play without and do a little buff. Overall our DPS is better but for almost nothing. They still didn´t do anything

Could be a very interesting way to simply change DPS output of specs.

I always like hearing new ideas, so how would you change DK? Just any ideas you might have?

Agreed, but depending on how they do it, it could also completely change rotations etc (depending on whether individual skills are tweaked under the hood to reach the % or if it's just a flat post-calc modifier).

I'm afraid that's the sort of math they might be tight-lipped about.

From my look, i think the RNG isn´t a big problem. It can be negated in some talent choices and overall i don´t feel like it´s REALLY bad.

The biggest problem i think is runic power.You either can´t do anything cause you don´t have runic power and rune, or you have runes and max runic power. Death coil doesn´t do that much damage for it to be really worth it and you have procs from sudden doom, so it takes a long time. I have an idea for death coil. Sudden Doom: your attacks have a chance to instantly throw death coil at your target with 100% increased dmg. This would make Unholy to not starve with just spamming deaht coils, they could just dump their runic power and sudden doom would be a nice passive dmg increase, if it would be OP it could be only 50% or something like that. The artifact trait for sudden doom that increases the proc chance could be only 5% and i would keep the two charges, but i think unholy is so low on dmg compared to other classes that 100% is alright. One trait from the weapon called scourge of the underworld or something like that should be baseline, it´s a nice synergy between spells but quite boring as an artifact trait i think, Same with the castigator talent. Now they nerfed the bracers, i even tried unholy frenzy when they buffed it and i did pretty well with it, but castigator and bursting sores should be baseline, bursting sores just does so much damage and it´s just SO needed in AOE situations. Not much i could say more, i am not an expert, some people could definitely solve the problems of the class much better, but i have to say i would increase outbreak DoT. Itself it does 200k. We should be a class that quoting from Blizzard should be slow with no mobility, which is true, no mobility at all because wraith walk doesn´t even work, but doing high dmg. So far i sense only no mobility, considering we should be class based off of pets and diseases. Pets i think are pretty good at the PTR right now but we have only one disease and it doesn´t do much. 

PS: Sorry for my english, it´s not my native language

      As promised, Alveona, Exorsus' guild master, has posted his opinions on the Tomb of Sargeras Mythic race on reddit. He goes really in-depth not only on the hot topic of Kil'jaeden, but the rest of the raid as well - from the difficulty curve, to what he thinks went wrong with the instance, hardcore raiding mythbusting and more.
      As you can imagine he's not too thrilled with the whole thing, but the post is well explained and we can get a feeling of what their frustrations on the boss(es) were much better. It's definitely worth a read if you're interested in the perspective of top-end raiders and in what tuning of a new raid looks like in the extremely early days of a new (Mythic) tier. Here are some highlights from the post:

      Patch 7.3 adds two new factions to the game. The first one's called Argussian Reach and you can add up to 7 mounts to your collection. Most of the reputation is gained from World Quests.
      Toraan the Revered is the faction's quartermaster and sells a tabard at Exalted.

      Other items
      Argussian Reach Emissary - World Quests Cache Argussian Reach Emissary Artifact Power - Cache AP Reward Argussian Reach Mounts
      The new faction offers 7 talbuk mounts. All of them are unlocked at Exalted.
      Maddened Chaosrunner is the only mount that has a somewhat "unique appearance" and it's an Argus drop. The other talbuks are just recolors.

      More attempted fixing of issues with "jump" abilities today, Destro Locks' Immolate, ToV items for Fury and Enh hidden artifact skins, as well as some Priest PvP get fixes as well.
      July 27 (source)
      Classes
      (Hhotfix in testing) Fixed a bug with Heroic Leap, Havoc's Metamorphosis, and Infernal Strike where they would sometimes fail to cast but still trigger their cooldown if the player became Rooted at the same time as the spell was cast. Warlock Destruction Immolate’s Soul Shard generation should now function as intended and match the tooltip. Dungeons and Raids
      Trial of Valor Helya, Odyn Corrected an issue that prevented the items for the hidden Fury or Enhancement artifact appearances from dropping when Personal Loot was selected. Player versus Player
      Priest Holy (Hotfix in testing) The final healing and damage of Ray of Hope can no longer be prevented by Smoke Bomb. Previous Hotfixes
