They made affliction more complicated. They destroyed destruction. Honestly, they say that they want chaos bolt to be a major part of a destro locks dps then they drop a 12 second cooldown on it. Where's the logic behind that?

Seems that way to me; especially since i am 0/21/40 shadow, PVE and converting to desto that is just a bad fire mage would be especially jarring. Bliz cant please everyone and i am sure they tried and perhaps some people are happy. I guess I will level my lock but it sure is disappointing.

Both mage and lock are currently a mess on beta."Arkhill said...I know looking at the fact locks get it 15 levels before we mages get our fancy new frostfire bolt make me qq"Frostfire sucks. Doesn't matter what level we get it at because as things stand you shouldn't use it against non-immunes. The numbers just don't work out PvE and I can't imagine why it'd ever be used PvP. If you are elementalist crit built AND geared AND can leech from another mage it COULD match other builds. That's a lot of caveats.To Kaizen said..."They made affliction more complicated.

If you've ever dealt with arcane as a mage you'll recognize the signs...and wince. Give them another expansion at least. (They've still not straightened out arcane nukes, including on beta.)My main is mage (mostly frost PvE which I admit is silly), warlock my backup, but unless there are big changes I'll level my bank alt hunter for ranged Lich raid work.
