5.2 changes to t14

Death Knight
The Frost and Unholy Tier-14 2-piece set bonus has been reduced to 4% (was 10%) increased damage on Frost Strike, Obliterate, and Scourge Strike.

That's taken from the ptr notes. We're the only ones who's tier set is getting nerfed. Wth is going through the developers' heads?
It's too good, providing far more damage than anyone else's set bonus. This compounds with the item upgrade system (which will not be accessible in 5.2) which was looking to make 2 pieces of T14H fully upgraded be mandatory until T15H heroic.

It was a necessary change.

I'm a little sad that they have yet to decide on a way to buff us to compensate for the lack of an overpowered tier bonus, but that's pretty standard Blizzard behavior (see Firelands Ele shams).

We'll still be okay next patch, and still be pretty good on cleave fights.
