Following the release of Patch 7.2.5, we continue to monitor every spec's performance and make tuning adjustments as necessary. With the opening of the Tomb of Sargeras in mind, during scheduled maintenance on 21 June, we expect to make the following changes:

Demon Hunter
  • Vengeance
    • Damage of all abilities reduced by 5%.
    • Spirit Bomb damage reduced by 33%.
Hunter
  • Survival
    • Damage of all abilities increased by 3%.
Mage
  • Arcane
    • Damage of all abilities increased by 3%.
  • Fire
    • Damage of all abilities increased by 3%.
Monk
  • Brewmaster
    • Stagger now has 40% effectiveness against Magic damage (was 50%).
Paladin
  • Retribution
    • Damage of all abilities increased 3.5%
Priest
  • Discipline
    • Evangelism now has a duration of 6 seconds (was 7 seconds).
Shaman
  • Elemental
    • Damage of all abilities increased by 3%.
    • Smoldering Heart proc chance is now 10% per 100 Maelstrom spent (was 20%).
Warlock
  • Affliction
    • Damage of all abilities reduced by 5%.
  • Destruction
    • Damage of all abilities reduced by 5%.
Warrior
  • Arms
    • Trauma can no longer Critically Strike.
    • Damage of all abilities reduced by 4%.

In addition to the class changes above, we're doing some final tuning on a couple of the forthcoming Tier-20 sets:

  • Brewmaster Monk Tier 20 2-piece now has a 40% chance to generate a Gift of the Ox Healing Sphere (was 100%).
  • Retribution Paladin Tier 20 2-piece bonus now increases Blade of Justice damage by 20% (was 15%).

Those buffs are a joke. I'm not just talking about fire mages here, ele and ret got the same cute backhanded slap we did.

And just nerfing locks by 5% adds insult to injury
Demon Hunter tanks: Welp, I guess blizz can't make our tank specs any worse...

Blizzard: Hold my beer....
Were the elemental gloves overtuned? yeah.
Was the elemental shaman doing crazy nuts single target dps with them? No, just decent.
Does a 3% bonus damage make up for the gloves? Lol nope.

Bless you blizzard, cause any other word will just get my message deleted, but bless you.

No DH in their right mind would complain about damage nerfs to spirit bomb in particular. It was flat out broken and the fact it lasted an entire week is pretty crazy.
That is some terribly conservative tuning. Very tip-toey. This is entirely for the week of Heroic, however, and surely more drastic tuning is made leading up to Mythic.

Our DH tank was top 5 on ST fights, 3rd, 2nd and 1st on aoe fights thx to Spirit Bomb and he is happy with buffs cuz he says from the beggining of the expansion that Vengeance is strong.

For ret I would say 3,5% more on top of that and we are good. Btw, am still salty about CoF/DoS situation, I mean, when CoF was strong for rets, blizz nerfed trinket to ground and our wings like day one. DoS wasn't poked till now and warrior is getting buffed. Plz nerf their burst ability then. I demand Justice and fair treatment.

NOO! God please no! I implore you this day, DO NOT DO THIS!
So, less than 1 week with the "Improved" Loc and you nerf me already.
What the !@#$ are you playing at?
All those feedbacks and tests on ptr and you nerf us after 4 days on live?
Been playing since BC, but I swear you''re testing my patience to keep subscribing.

Rethink all this, and not just to my class and spec but to others.

Can't even start about the other classes yet as I'm so pissed about my loc.

Also, why do you do these bad changes at weekend or before a weekend right before you all piss off for your jollies and no one is here to reply or feedback to us?

Get a grip ffs.
Soo no T20 nerf revert,no buffs,nothing...
Atleast not moar nerfs,it's something.
Let's promote a new way of thinking for blizzard. Screw tuning entirely. If something doesn't work out like intended, replace it instead. I'm tired of seeing these minute changes that doesn't apply to anything and legendaries that's... wait for it... NOT so legendary! And in almost every case these changes are unjustified and badly timed. If at least we'd be given a a good reason I'd be happier
SV needs some buffs to it's t20-4p, which in it's current state is . If you're not willing to buff the set, SV hunters will have to continue running nighthold this whole tier (according to sims, which indicate that the nerfed t19 is still better than t20). Another solution could be to integrate the t19-2p bonus into the spec, kinda like you did for the BM shoulders effect. Prefferably I'd like to see both a t20 buff and the t19-2p integrated into the spec, effectively removing most of the reasons to wade through old content this tier aswell as making sure the spec is still competitive and engaging to play.

Warlocks were doing too much damage (See warcraftlogs) and therefore the damage got reduced.

How can people possibly be upset about this? They said there would be ongoing tuning, it's not like this is a surprise.
Hum !!!!! Can you be more specific as to know why and where you can justify such a nerf AGAIN !!!! for god sake stop touching affliction....

Explain why you give us a nerf !

Warlock
Affliction
Damage of all abilities reduced by 5%.


I can't stand it anymore really

monitoring performance on a week before the release of a new tier ?
Most "high ranked" player are not here this is not representative of what specs in general are really doing !

Also we got 5 % and war arms only 4 % but still they are ahead of any other class ! i don't wish for them to get even more nerf but how do you monitor anything and justify it ????

i really hope we can get an answer on this one !
