Please elaborate. You may very well be correct, but I'm curious how you're arriving at that conclusion. Also do you mean for PvE or PvP? Are you assuming that the DoTs will crit for +100% dmg or +50%? If it's the former, it seems to me from simple napkin math that we should see no change in our DoTs' dps from the Shadowform change in PvE. Maybe I'm missing something though?For PvP, it does seem like a nerf since a critting DoT would be doubly reduced in effectiveness via resil (with a reduced chance of critting in the first place.) However, I'm basing that on simple logic and haven't actually tried calculating it to see how that logic pans out. Optimistically though, since locks are also getting critable DoTs, we might even see resil itself reworked to no longer reduce DoT damage, or to reduce it by a smaller amount. Furthermore, it would at least make our damage a bit more spikey which is always helpful in PvP.
