FYI, Minor PvP Tuning on 9/24

Battlegrounds
Glad that druids got a nerf, especially feral. There's no reason why any class should be salvageable because of one azerite trait :)
BM is fine it doesn't need nerfs
Thanks Forums, now I can continue to be lazy and not look it up on my own.

Oh and ouch. My off heals. :(
why did unholy get nerf?????

Kinda sad it didnt read something like "resto affinity heals reduced by 15%, Regrowth heals for 30% less when cast on other players during pvp."

Think there was a 3 stack trait that was wrecking shop.
Was it not enough that all the top hunters in Arenas already switched from BM to Survival before you overnerfed it even worse?

These changes are a bit heavy handed but lets not act like BM pets werent doing tons of dps, druids off healing wasnt doing a bit too much, resto druids throughput vs mana consumption wasnt messed up etc etc

Oh, Resto Affinity was a bit too strong, I dont deny that at all. I’ve had some war mode encounters that had no business happening the way they happened.

Still sad. But it needed to happen.

Lol yea I actually think the last set of BM nerfs were perfect... Then they leave dh/boomkin damage like it is?!?!?! I actually don't get their reasoning. 18% is huge, BM will be garbage.

Awesome!!!.... a reduction in my only instant cast spell (riptide).... and a 1.5 sec cast on spirit link?... my only "Holy crap" spell that I have?... 1.5 sec cast time means a NEVER cast spell because Ill either be interupted or dead... thanx for making shaman heals retarded again!!! WHY?... the only shaman spec worth playing and you put in cast time for yet another ability.... When are the melee stun and interupt nerfs gonna happen? when will they get "swing time" on abilities?

Rippling Waters (PvP Talent) healing reduced by 33%.???? So I guess the 5600 I was getting healed when the spell ended, refreshed or dispelled was too much for the melee that hit me for 15k every second?

Surging Tide (Azerite Trait) effectiveness reduced by 25% when engaged in combat with enemy player??? The azerite traits were already nerfed in Pvp combat... I have 2 pieces that gave me a combined absord bubble of around 4500 in PVP (If i cast riptide on a target below 50% health) ... again, it isnt even an amount that is equal to 1 melee attack... it was a fraction of a second advantage that gets nerfed .... makes no sense

...this is just frustrating


Lol yea they buffed riptide prior to everyone having 3 traits stacked.... But now instead of nerfing the stacking they nerf riptide?
Riptide was too strong I think. Instant cast shouldn't be... But our casted heals feel like garbage. I am really worried and hope they buff healing wave to compensate.

Also happy about spirit link nerf, that talent was pretty dumb.
Another BM nerf and yet Disc priest actually are getting a buff...

You have got to be kidding me...Disc priest are ruining pvp...They are like a freaking raid boss...

Focused Will decreases damage taken by 10% per stack when engaged in combat with enemy players (was 20%).

Question will be, will it be enough to still act as our defensive? or will it end up garbage like legion and we are forced to be baby sat.

Hope so, it’s not like they’d add a small buff to it if they overnerfed it.

Everything that gets overnerfed tends to not see improvements until the middle of the next season. Either way a lot of the nerfs are justified just not sure the heavy hand is a good approach. Arena meta swaps every tuning pass now lol.

GET OUT OF MY FORUMS!

Note that we’re planning another round of balance updates for the near future after this round, which will include changes for other specs (including Warlock and Death Knight).


They're taking their sweet time to buff locks. Is it really not that obvious we need survivability buffs?


I am really curious what they'll do. Hope they don't want to keep punishing a "formerly too OP class." I would like to play my lock again.

P.S. Thank you as always to Forums for all the info.
