Well, if that's the case, why are they buffing Warlocks' multi-doting potential with our 2pc bonus?Take a look at what Tyler has to say on the matter in the last Blood Pact column: http://wow.joystiq.com/2011/05/16/blood-pact-first-look-into-warlocks-and-patch-4-2/ (Hahaha! Broke your first two commandments =P)Warlocks are very similar to SPriests in the multi-doting department, we also shine in the fights you mentioned. The opposite of what you are suggesting is being done to us though.

That may have something to do with the fact that we [locks] already had a 12% damage nerf to all our DOTs when 4.1 hit, which falls in line with what's being proposed here. First, they nerf the damage and tweak the modifiers to make things "easier" to balance in the future. As for the 2pc bonus, I see that a rectifying an error. The warlock Tier 11 bonuses aren't attractive at all (at least for affliction locks, I can't speak for the other specs).

12% nerf to Lock dots in 4.1?That's not in the patch notes neither did I read that in any other source, I believe you are mistaken.

The patch was 4.0.3a where Warlocks got a 12% across the board nerf to basically all of their spells.http://www.wowhead.com/patchnotes=4.0.3a#warlock

Well, my apologies for stating the wrong patch and thank you David Cook for clarifying.

Sadly, it seems that Blizzard has caught on to my schemings, or at least, you know, they aren't idiots. Earlier this week, someone else mentioned that to Zar and he stated that all of the tier pet procs will be changed to have a ridiculously high chance to proc but come with an ICD in order to equalize their damage across classes/specs/encounters.

@TylerI blame it on you! Why would you publish something like that? =PBut seriously, that sounds like it will be much easier to balance.
