  • (Updated)

    Ability Consolidation and Refinement

  • Mistweaver Changes

  • Blackout Kick causes Eminence to heal 5 allies instead of 1, but heals for only 20% 15% of damage dealt instead of 50%.
  • Ascension, Mana, and Energy (Brewmaster, Mistweaver)

    (Note: Lines for Ascension, Combo Breaker, and Stance of the Fierce Tiger got moved to other sections.)

    We’re making a few changes that mostly affect Windwalkers, but has a minor impact on Mistweavers and Brewmasters as well. For energy-based gameplay to function well, the primary limitation on ability usage should be energy, not time. As such, we’re making the following changes to address GCD-capping problems. First, we’re reducing the effects and mana increase of Ascension, because it became more powerful when combined with several of our other changes to healers. We believe that Ascension will remain as a competitive talent for Brewmasters. Second, energy cost of Jab has been increased for Windwalkers. And Third, we reduced the chance for Combo Breaker to trigger. Individually, these may sound like significant nerfs but Windwalker damage has been adjusted to compensate for these changes. The goal is not to reduce DPS while addressing the issue with GCD-capping.

    • Ascension now increases energy regeneration and maximum mana by 10% (down from 15%).
    • Combo Breaker now has an 8% chance to trigger, per effect, per Jab (down from 12%).
    • Stance of the Fierce Tiger now also increases Jab’s energy cost by 10.
       

    Windwalker Changes

    For Energy-based gameplay to function well, the primary limitation on ability usage should be Energy, not time. That breaks down when a rotation becomes limited by available GCDs, rather than by Energy. Windwalkers were hitting this “GCD-cap” too easily, causing scaling problems as they geared up, and removing rotational choices. To solve this problem, we’ve made a few tweaks that will slow down their rotation slightly; but still allow Windwalkers who enjoy the GCD-capped playstyle to have options available to focus on Haste and Energy regeneration. Individually, these may sound like significant nerfs, but Windwalker damage has been adjusted to compensate for these changes. The goal is to address the issue with GCD-capping while not reducing DPS.

    • Combo Breaker now has an 8% chance to trigger, per effect, per Jab (down from 12%).
    • Jab now costs 45 Energy while in Stance of the Fierce Tiger.

    There are a couple of additional changes for Windwalkers. Storm, Earth, and Fire, got buffed to make it smoother to use. We also buffed Fists of Fury because we felt that the ability wasn’t giving a strong enough damage boost given its restrictions and impact on the Monk’s rotation.

    • Stance of the Fierce Tiger now increases all damage done by 20% now also increases Jab’s energy cost by 10.
    • Fists of Fury now deals 100% increased damage, and always deal full damage to the primary target; additional targets are still affected by the damage split.
    • Storm, Earth, and Fire no longer has an energy cost, and is off global cooldown.
       

    Brewmaster Changes

  • Elusive Brew now increases dodge chance by 45% 35% (up from 30%).
  • (Updated)

    Ability Consolidation and Refinement

  • Borrowed Time has been redesigned. It now increases the Priest’s stat gains to Haste from all sources by 40% for 6 seconds.
  • Talent Revisions

  • Surge of Light (Discipline, Holy) activation chance has been reduced to 8% 10% (down from 15%).
  • (Updated)

  • Ancestral Vigor has been removed.
  • Restoration Changes

  • Chain Heal now heals each chain target for 10% 15% less than the previous target.
  • (Updated)

    Stance Changes

    Warriors have always had stances; they’re very important to the feeling of being a Warrior. In order to make stances more meaningful, and ease keybinds, we made stances have their own action bars, and re-added stance restrictions on abilities. However, we also made it so that you’ll automatically be shifted into the appropriate stance if you try to use an ability that isn’t usable in your current stance. One important difference between this and previous incarnations of Warrior stances is that these abilities are rotational, not utility cooldowns. Stances are now more for different gameplay modes (dealing damage vs. tanking). There shouldn’t be cases where you find yourself swapping stances, use an ability, and then immediately swapping back.

    • Warrior Stances now once again have their own action bars.
      • Attempting to use an ability that requires a different stance will now automatically switch to that stance.
    • Colossus Smash now requires Battle Stance.
    • Recklessness now requires Battle Stance.
    • Sweeping Strikes now requires Battle Stance.
    • Activating Defensive Stance now puts Mortal Strike, Bloodthirst, Whirlwind, Slam, Raging Blow, and Wild Strike on a 6-second cooldown.
    • Devastate is now available to all Warrior specializations (was Protection only) and requires Defensive Stance or Gladiator Stance.
      • For Arms and Fury Warriors, Devastate has a 30% chance to reset the cooldown of Revenge.
    • Revenge is now available to all Warrior specializations (was Protection only), and requires Defensive Stance or Gladiator Stance.
    • Shield Barrier is now available for all Warrior specializations (was Protection only) and requires Defensive Stance.
      • For Arms and Fury Warriors, Shield Barrier can be used without a shield.
    • Taunt now requires Defensive Stance or Gladiator Stance.

  • Fury Changes

    • Bloodsurge’s effects have been merged into baseline Bloodthirst and no longer reduce Wild Strike’s global cooldown. Its spell alert has moved to the top slot instead of the left and right slots, and now has 2 charges (down from 3 charges).

  • Restoration Changes

  • Living Seed now heals for 50% of the critical heal (up from 30%).
  • Incarnation: Tree of Life no longer enhances Lifebloom. Instead, it also enhances Rejuvenation, increasing its healing by 50%, and reducing its cost by 50%.
  • Heart of the Wild (Restoration) now increases healing done by 35% (up from 25%).
  • Omen of Clarity (Restoration) can now only be triggered by the most recently applied Lifebloom, and now causes the next Regrowth to be free.
  • Soul of the Forest for Restoration Druids has been redesigned.
    • Soul of the Forest (Restoration) when casting Swiftmend, the Druid gains Soul of the Forest. Soul of the Forest reduces the cast time of the next Healing Touch by 50%, or increases the healing of the next Regrowth, or Rejuvenation, increases the healing of the next Wild Growth by 50%.

    Talent Revisions

    • Presence of Mind is no longer a talent, and is now learned by only Arcane Mages.
    • Evanesce is a new Talent available at level 15, replacing Presence of Mind.
      • Evanesce causes the Mage to fade into the nether, avoiding all attacks for 3 seconds. This spell has a 45-second cooldown, replaces Ice Block, is not on global cooldown, and may be cast while a cast-time spell is in progress.
         
    • Alter Time now lasts for 10 15 seconds (up from 6 seconds), has a 90-second cooldown (down from 3 minutes), and no longer affects the Mage’s mana, buffs, or debuffs.

(Total of 60% on double-Multistrikes).
  • (Updated)

    • Hemorrhage’s periodic damage is now based on attack power (instead of the initial strike’s damage), and ticks every 2 seconds. Damage has been adjusted to compensate. has rolling periodic behavior, meaning that remaining damage from the previous application is added into the newly-applied periodic-damage effect.
    • Honor Among Thieves can now also be triggered by critical hits from the Rogue’s melee Auto Attacks.
    • Sinister Calling now increases Agility by 15% (down from 30%), and the amount of Multistrike bonus received from all sources by 5% (in order to act as Subtlety’s Secondary Stat Attunement). And finally, when the rogue Multistrikes with Backstab or Ambush, they also twist the blade, causing all Bleed effects to advance by 2 seconds, triggering an instant tick instantly tick an additional time.
       

    Rolling Periodic Damage

    (Note: Lines for Crimson Tempest and Hemorrhage got moved to other sections.)

    A couple of Rogue abilities do periodic damage, but don’t have an intended alternative if that periodic is already on the target. We made these abilities roll remaining damage from their previous effect into the new effect, so that it’s still ideal to use them again in these cases.

    • Crimson Tempest’s periodic damage now has rolling periodic behavior, meaning that remaining damage from the previous application is added into the newly-applied periodic-damage effect.
    • Hemorrhage’s periodic damage now has rolling periodic behavior, meaning that remaining damage from the previous application is added into the newly-applied periodic-damage effect.
       

    (Updated)

    Ability Consolidation and Refinement

  • Seed of Corruption and Soulburn: Seed of Corruption can no longer both apply to the same target.
