According to mmo-champion gosac now increases single target abilities by 35%. Thats a bit much! Im not positive but it seems like gosac will just be useless, maybe affliction will just be garbage all together. /sad

You should look at the other 100000 threads about this instead of making a new one.

No, it's not. I want warriors to tremble in fear as they once did. As they see a massive flurry of green incinerates hail down on them, burning their gear and bodies away into piles of ash.

It's been up for most of the day, and you can always count on countless threads when any nerfs (even if they still don't overall nerf the class) come out.

It's roughly a 5% nerf to Affliction's DPS. Sacrifice is currently ~6.5% ahead of Supremacy for Affliction. It's not going to change much for single-target priority, just going to make Supremacy more attractive on multitarget fights.

You should post on a thread you actually have something meaningful to add instead of saying pointless things in this one.

Its going to suck but it seems like affliction locks are going to have to try a new grim or just respec altogether. Personally Im looking forward to going demo and leaving sac and its 15% nerf in the dust

I giggled a little bit at this. They only thing nerfed for Afflic was that ONE talent, and even then it only dropped Afflic's damage by maybe about 5%. Yeah, nerfing a spec by 5% that on live is 10-15% ahead of everyone else sure is killing it.

How is this not meaningful? There are a lot of other threads already about this that have already built up more information and discussion. Looking at the other threads is more advantageous than looking at this one.

Actually, none of affliction's abilities are getting buffe. Maybe you shouldn't criticize someone for not reading patch notes when you clearly haven't either.

This isn't such a bad nerf. GoSac only affects Haunt, MG, Drain Soul, and Fel Flame. Sure the extra DoT ticks we get from MG won't be as high but thats not too bad is it?

LOL. Do YOU even read mmo-champ? The spec who got all the buffs to other abilities is Destro not Affliction.

It looks like pure fine-tuning for pve, They brought down affliction's damage by an estimated 15%, which could bring it down in line with the other specs while trying to balance out sac with supremacy and dominance. I think the change will do more good than harm, but hey that's just my overall view on this subject. Feel free to disagree and explain why you think the way you do.
