After being told changes were coming to lock and dk 3 weeks ago, there have been nothing but further nerfs on the ptr.

Its an actual joke at this point.
Hey Blizzard, you need to nerf Blood's self healing, NOT further cripple a class that is already trash in PvP.

What? Not at all. Just bring other tanks up instead.

Changes on the PTR for Death Knights in regards to PVP is not yet complete. More changes for Unholy and Frost are on the way and we hope to share those with you guys soon.

One of those incoming changes for example is that we're reducing the runic power cost for Death Strike in 8.1 and increasing its healing for Unholy and Frost.

Any word on having some of our damage moved away from passives like Frost Fever and auto attack and back into Obliterate and Frost Strike?

For PVE, again can we have some of our breath / dot damage moved back into our normal rotation abilities?

Got anything at all for Unholy DKs? They kind of just need help everywhere.

This is good news, but is there any reason we can't have this (or anything really) hotfixed into the game now?
hopefully there are some more significant warlock changes coming for pvp. Where are the demo buffs/fixes ?

Omg a blue post about unholy is this real life
Now if Blizzard could just respond to the 900+ post Guardian thread that hasn't had a single blue post since it was created in beta...
