BF in 5.2

Warlock
So, now we get a fear thats good once every minute and a half and if we use it it's like getting hit for 25k health too? What's this suppose to be? A test? If you pick this talent then, we know, your an idiot. Wow, what a rework.

Didn't you say you were quitting and had cancelled your subscription more than a month ago?
It is now a Horror and not a Fear so it does not DR with your fear. It also does not replace fear so its like getting an extra cc. It also has a 30 second cool down, so its good 3 times in a minute and half, not 1. Any melee can do a ton more than 25k damage in that time frame that they would be ccd. For strict defensive purposes the talent isn't so bad.

I'm enjoying the current version more than BF on live. It's nice being able to keep warriors off you for a few more seconds, even when they have BR up.
So the way it reads on the PTR is that it is an eternal melee shield. Lasts 1 min, 30 second cooldown and horrifies on every melee attack without being consumed?

I don't expect it to survive in this form very long. The warriors, pallies, dks, hunters and rogues would not be too happy that they can't hit us.

ahhhh, now that sounds, not too bad, it said 1 charge so i thought it was used up when hit once. in destro do they give you fear if you take it now?


Maybe the cooldown is after the minute...

Presumably it DR's with Mortal Coil though? I use MC a lot in the arena when going for a kill because it doesn't seem to break with damage.

I'm curious as to how you're finding PvP. Without BF our CC chains are going to have to be incredably well timed to keep a healer from bringing someone back up to full, or have a mage just freeze you in place and kill you...
This new bf will suck. it's not getting another cc it's taking away a 10 sec cd cc and replacing it with a 30 sec one except this bf does nothing against casters. it's crap no matter how you look at it.

I hate to tell you but locks needed a offensive cc. I don't give a damn what blizz blew up you skirt, that you believe.

A lot of you locks judge pvp by arenas, which is 1 small part of this game. besides arena is combos and crap. This whole pvp mess started when blizz stopped looking at classes as individual ones in pvp and went the combo route. worst decision of the pvp side of this game.

bf will still be garbage unless blizz takes away cc's from the other classes and i don't see that in any meaningful way atm.

It has 1 charge.
Can i get 2 charges of blood horror between the 30 seconds of cooldown and the 1 minute of the buff duration?
BF will be decent against melee that want to stick to you endlessly. Imagine having it up when a rogue opens on you - 3sec garrote oh no jk you're horrified for 4 sec. Or imagine it when a warrior warbringer charges you - 3 sec warbringer oh no JK horrified for 4 sec. Or imagine it when a DK grips you in - closed the gap oh no jk horrified for 4 sec. Or imagine it when a druid pounces you - pounced oh no jk horrified for 4 sec. Or imagine it when an enh shaman frost shock roots you to close the gap - oh no jk horrified for 4 sec. Or imagine when a monk FSKs to you to close the gap - oh no jk horrified for 4 sec. Or imagine when a paladin stuns you - 5 sec stun oh no jk horrified for 4 sec.

And to the poster above me - good question, not sure the charges stack. Doesn't seem like to me they would but you never know!
The buff really needs to be immune to dispels or the DK, Hunter or Shaman will just remove it.

I'm happy to inform you that locks have offensive CC even when bf gets changed.
