I'm not sure multi-dotting is such a bad playstyle. It's actually quite challenging, requires multitasking, quick targetting, proc management, and I really enjoy it. It would be a shame to see it go. I'm not sure why Blizzard would have such strong desire to change a playstyle unique to a few specs in the game.I get cleaning up Warlocks spells, much as they are mages. But I don't see a significant issue with shadow priests and moonkins having dots. Otherwise, they basically start to play like shaman or "what was" destruction locks.

The problem is that it's hard to balance. If you design the spec around multi-dotting, then your dps drops dramatically when you can't hit multiple targets. If you balance the spec for single target dps, then you rule any fight where you can hit multiple targets. Either way, you end up being too good at one thing and too bad at the other.

Perhaps because managing the power of multi-dotting is difficult? If they reduce the damage our dots do, we're bad at single target, if they leave things as they are, we crush everyone when there is more than one target etc.I love multi-dotting, but there's a serious disparity between the classes that can and the ones which can't.
