wow Patch 7.1.5 Build 23244: Class Changes

9 posts in this topic

cGfCz7n.jpg

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

      Pet Battle Dungeons are here. So far, only Wailing Caverns are available for testing. It's a scenario with 7 stages and increasing difficulty, where you fight your way up to get an Ultimate Battle-Training Stone and eventually, Damp Pet Supplies.
      Pet Battle Dungeons
      If you have at least one level 25 pet, go to Dalaran and talk to Serr'ah. She will offer a quest called A Call from the Caverns.  Teleport to Orgrimmar and go to Crossroads. There you'll have to find Muyani. She offers another quest Wailing Critters, which rewards Ultimate Battle-Training Stone. Talk to her again and you will enter a scenario (Scenario: Wailing Critters) with 7 stages. Wailing Caverns is the only pet battle dungeon that's currently available and it functions like a scenario. You will be fighting pets and the difficulty increases as you progress through stages. You are able to Revive Battle Pets inside dungeons. When you complete the quest and turn it in, you will be offered another weekly quest, but this time, you won't be able to revive or heal your pets - Pet Battle Challenge: Wailing Caverns. When complete, you'll get Damp Pet Supplies. The bag contains some of the recently added pets. New Pets
      A list of new pets that have been added in 7.2 can be found here. Pet Battle Dungeons Screenshots

      Patch 7.2 adds a new dungeon called Cathedral of Eternal Night. Drops from existing dungeons had an item level bump, Karazhan has been split into two and Vantus Runes are coming for Mythic+ dungeons.
      Dungeon Changes
      Health of enemies inside dungeons has been increased. To compensate, the item level of items that drop inside dungeons has been increased. Normal difficulty - item level 825+ Heroic difficulty - item level 845+ Mythic difficulty - item level 865+ The changes are really good as dungeons will stay relevant throughout the expansion. In previous expansions, dungeons were only used for initial gearing and for the daily dungeon bonus. Karazhan has been split into Lower / Upper Karazhan and can be now accessed via Dungeon Finder. Mythic+ Dungeons
      Are receiving Vantus Runes in 7.2. You can use one per dungeon / week.

      Vantus Rune: Demonic Inquisition Vantus Rune: Fallen Avatar Vantus Rune: Fel Titan Vantus Rune: Goroth Vantus Rune: Harjatan the Bludger Vantus Rune: Kil'jaeden Vantus Rune: Mistress Sassz'ine Vantus Rune: Sisters of the Moon Vantus Rune: The Desolate Host Vantus Rune: Tomb of Sargeras What do you think about Vantus Runes being added to Mythic+ dungeons?
