MoP: Fel Flame refreshes.... Corruption???

I'm very confused with the latest public build. The tooltip on Fel Flame says that it now refreshes the duration of Corrupion on the target (no more UA or Immolate). First off; why? Secondly, this is a total waste. I just don't see the point of wasting a GCD on Fel Flame to refresh a DoT that can be reapplied insantly with that same GCD?? Corruption an instant cast ability, it doesn't need Fel Flame tied to it....

Is that a tooltip error or what?

Maybe if you get locked out of shadow? I haven't really looked at the talents in depth but it could just be a mistake.

Well, it isn't exactly a waste. You can use a GCD to reapply Corruption or you can use a GCD to refresh Corruption and do some extra damage.

Yeah, I'm hoping it's an error too.

There's three versions of Fel Flame.

Affliction's version refreshes UA and Corruption. Demo's version only refreshes corruption, but turns into a frontal line AoE when in Meta form. Destro's version refreshes immolate, does more damage, costs more mana, and generates embers.

It will be the same situation about refreshing UA in PvE with Fel Flame. Not worth it unless you're moving.

are you sure about that? sounds like conditional stipulations being put on the spell depending on what spec you are in. whats wrong with it working the same with all specializations and positional requirements for use?

Akvon, what are you talking about conditional stipulations? Destro doesn't HAVE corruption anymore.

In each spec it refreshes abilities FOR THAT SPEC.

Proof people will complain about anything, regardless of how good it is.

!@#$. you are a mage and have no place in this conversation. by the looks of it, your helmet-headbanging self made a good choice with sticking with the magi. your warlock is pitiful.

you do not have what it takes to play a warlock. no self respecting DPS stacks that much spirit and thinks they can get away with it through reforging. you can take that $hit$ back to the 5 mans you shine in. good guild name for yourself. own on Mamm

Ah, so I guess it was a tooltip error then in the latest build calc. Didn't see anything about 3 different Fel Flame variations, refreshing UA/Immo or any of that. Thanks for clearing that up.

Creepin, I don't see anything about it on the calculator either, however pull up MoP Beta video's on youtube about warlocks and watch them. Felflame is refreshing different abilities in each spec when it's used.

It's hard to find one that shows this for Destro because of how incredibly broken the mana is at this point, but if you look you can find it.

As far as I am aware, it refreshed UA and Corruption. The only spells you will ever actually hard cast are Haunt, Agony, MG - After obviously applying all dots.

Blizzard's talent calculator is out of date. Wowhead's calculator is more up to date, but still a little iffy on some abilities.
