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.

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.

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.
