When you use fire blast to detonate frost bomb, FIRE BLAST does 50% less damage.


Well there ya go! Problem solved!
Damn... And I thought we were taking a step in the right direction...
is this on player targets because my bomb is hitting the same either way and so are my fireblasts on training dummies.
So they nerf healing by an additional 15% (Further hurting hybrids! Sweet!) and then don't remove the 160k burst you have to stop every 10 seconds or you die?

Heheheh..
Can't believe they think a nerf to tfb and fireblast warrants battle fatigue being buffed to 30%

Yea I have no idea what they were thinking.

And the ones that needed the healing nerf were shammy/pally healers. They just made "okay" resto druids "not okay" and disc priests even worse.

Actually it keeps all healers the same, it's all relative.

And yet, shamans and hpals healed, and will still heal, more then other healers.
It keeps them the same in comparison to each other, but the ones that were barely viable before due to burst will be completely nonviable now.

If a paladin heals for 100K and they got nerfed to 85K, they can still heal through the 85K Mortal Strike.

If a priest heals for 85K, but now they're healing for 72.25K, they can't survive the 85K Mortal Strike, even though they're healing for proportionally the same amount as they did before when compared to paladins.

So it's not relative, it just sucks.

Doesn't mean anything, it has nothing to do with the latest hotfix.

Not when they didn't fix instant CC, massive CC chains, and overall damage/burst.

It has everything to do with the latest hotfix, as they are kicking healers and hybrids while they're down because some heal too much.
A lot of people are reading it incorrectly, probably because blizzard worded it very poorly.

The correct way the hotfix SHOULD read is:

When you use fire blast to detonate frost bomb, FIRE BLAST does 50% less damage.


Actually, that's incorrect. Apologies for the poorly worded patch note. I've since updated the note to read:

  • When Fire Blast modified by Glyph of Fire Blast is used to detonate a Frost Bomb, the resulting Frost Bomb now deals 50% less damage.

Some hotfixes weren't quite applied when the notes were published. That happens sometimes, but this change should be in soon.
That's really interesting since my FIRE BLAST is doing 50% less when I use it to detonate frost bomb...
