Patch 4.2: Normal mode tier 11 encounters nerfed

Patch 4.2 PTR testing is in full swing, and we've got another round of patch notes, courtesy of Zarhym and the official Warcraft blog. Today's notes are primarily a metric ton of nerfs to normal mode encounters in Blackwing Descent, Bastion of Twilight, and Throne of the Four Winds. The nerfs were explained by Nethaera as follows:

Nethaera
With the upcoming content patch, 10- and 25-person Normal mode raid encounters will be receiving a comprehensive set of tuning adjustments to decrease their difficulty.

These changes will allow players, groups, and guilds who have yet to experience the content in Blackwing Descent, Bastion of Twilight, and Throne of the the Four Winds an opportunity to do so.

With the addition of a new tier of armor and weapons, we want to make the previous tier more accessible in ways other than just a shift of currency type, so we are making item level 359 gear purchasable for Justice points in the upcoming content patch.


Follow us after the break for the full list of patch notes.

Warlocks nerfed; every other class throws a party

Rumors have been flying all day, and now it's official: warlocks on the beta realms have been nerfed. From Nethaera:
  • I just wanted to take some time to drop in and reassure people that the change to the dots is intentional as a part of ongoing balancing that we have been doing. It is not a bug.

    Just so that everyone knows a bit more the approximate damage reduction is 10% for "Curse of Agony" and "Corruption" for the average Warlock.
It looks like this is achieved through lowering the +damage coefficient for DoTs; specifically, Warlock DoTs now seem to be receiving somewhat less than 100% of your +damage. This means that well-geared Warlocks with high +damage will feel more pain from this.

Well, everyone asked for it, and now they've got it. Warlocks got a whack with the nerf bat. Did they deserve it?
