Warlock 5.2 NEW changes!

Warlock
Blood fear is 30 second cd now last 1 min and only 5% Hp on use.

Sac Pet is back to how it was , uses 25% pets HP to gain 400% absorb.

Ember tap Glyph useless now, only heals 5% more and another 5% over 10 seconds.

This is from the ptr.
Ember Tap Glyph is great now. It is 5% of the Warlocks total Health. The 50% increase to Ember Tap was OP, and needed a nerf.

Sac Shield got a buff, in that Lock pets and Warlocks themselves using GoSac pay 25% rather than 50% health.

Mixed feeling about BF.
I feel that they're not going to change the mechanics of blood fear, but they're going in the right direction with it.

Maybe they could make it a horrify effect?

just a thought.
Does the new blood fear still replace fear? If not, well done blizzard.

Here's a talent I'd actually take.

Confirmed;

Taking blood fear does NOT replace your baseline fear spell.
I'm loving the changes here.

Wow that's amazing. All the utility and convenience of blood fear in a realistic package.

Wth is going on over at blizz and who gave them this wonderful idea?
Does not replace fear anymore? That can be interesting, tho I still really like Unbound Will, I´m gonna have to try BF if it goes live like that.

Exactly.

Ubw is still strong and it's somewhat of a toss up for me personally.

And that's the point. Balancing out tiers.
So in all honesty is everyone here excited for patch 5.2 and whats to come of warlock pvp?
Lets not forget that GoSac gets shot in the leg and Fire&Brimstone is chopped by a third.
Yeah, you never see people whining this much on other class forums, overreacting to fairly minor changes and disregarding any buffs just to whine more about nerfs.

I am not a masochist.


You might be playing the wrong class.

The FnB nerf is pretty drastic. Losing ~10 yards of blanket spell coverage is a tough pill to swallow but a justified one.

The new BF doesn't seem too bad, but this is PTR and things can keep changing.

I don't think you understand where warlocks stand right now, Aff doesn't need more damage, they need a more reliable source of damage.
