    • Roiling Storm (Azerite Trait) additional Stormstrike damage now diminishes per stack when in combat with enemy players.


Wow this new warlock tuning you announced are awesome! Thanks Blizzard!
Looking like no Warlock changes until 8.1 at this point

I don't get it. Are we getting mechanical changes? How can you let a class be so terrible through Alpha, Beta and the first season? There was so much feedback left.
suffer well dks I guess, not touching my dk alt at all..
Why don't you do something with Fury warriors in Pvp, you've barely you touched the class all expansion.....
Looked at 10/9 Hot fix notes and 0 Rogue PvP nerfs, which made me pass out. Then I see this for 10/10..

I think this is the 4th week in a row. Maybe just nerf Rogue by 100% in PvP and be done with it.
Frost mages just reroll. 15% damage buff to an ability that does 2k damage is LAUGHABLE LOLLLL
nice ww changes,
Tfw you rolled a DK main and lock alt this xpac and wanted to try actually getting into PvP for once :)

    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).


    these are real tears i'm crying :'(
    Lore why are warlocks and dk not on this list? Remember your post on 9/21? What happened man?
    What happened to the DK and Warlock changes that you literally told us was coming in the “near future”?
    Any news on those DK changes that were promised weeks ago...
    Good changes, keep it up! we need more of this aswell, need a bit nerf on dhs, buff dks, locks, and buff rdruid focused growth talent a bit (since you guys overnerfed with -10% all healing and that talent) **consider disabling azerite traits on pvp instances** that's so important.
    When is ret paladin healing going to be nerfed, since feral and enhance have already been taken care of?

    Love how you guys don't nerf one thing at a time. Just totally nerf everything at once.

    You know what’s really stupid is being oom after 4 purges and unable to use cap totem or other utility because everything still costs MANA

    You guys are garbage at balancing.

    Nerf utility, damage and support all at once! Holy over nerf! Morons...
    Blizzard so out of touch with the PVP player base it would be sad if it wasn't just so overwhelmingly pathetic.
