Warlock 4.3 Patch Notes

Shadowbolt has a new spell effect.

Well, color me excited!  This is almost as huge as Felfire being green.  HUGE.

Honestly I'm sure there's more coming, once part 2 of the balance changes is released.  There appear to be several interesting changes to the Paladin healing mechanic, including changing the need to judge from 8 seconds to 30 seconds.  It looks like overall there are going to be some decent changes, which are usually met with mixed feelings.  Everyone loves to be buffed, hates being nerfed (scissors are fine, nerf paper), and learning new mechanics (or how to incorporate the changes) is always interesting.

I'm looking forward to seeing 4.3 come out, though I hope we're not looking at 8 weeks of PTR.  With SW:TOR announcing the 20th as their launch date, it would be pretty poor to have 4.3 wait that long.  I don't care about it interfering with TOR (I'll be picking that up regardless), it's just that another 3 months of Firelands instantly sucks at my soul - especially given the recent nerfs.  Going from 2/7 to 5/7 in one week is awesome, and I love killing new bosses.  Farming the same 7/7 (or 6/7 with H-Rag work) for 12 weeks is not something I'm looking forward to.

Here's to a new spell effect for Shadow Bolt.

  1. Did you see the T13 priest? I love it. Total V for Vendetta style.
