May 30th 2008 1:03PM One thing I feel compelled to remark on is that the interpretation of the fel armor change is very wrong:
"At the same time, Fel Armor has been tweaked: the current 20% heal bonus is replaced with 30% mana regeneration. Could all this be heralding the dreaded Life Tap nerf that didn't land in 2.4, since Blizzard's objective is to somewhat reduce the Warlock's survivability in the Arenas?"
There was a swap with demon armor, which now provides no resistance or health regen, but armor and healing bonus. Blizzard simply made both armors useful, one for PvP and the other for PvE. Having demon armor with both an armor and healing recieved buff is preferable anyway, since arenas now are survival intensive.
