Increased the damage of most Feral spells and abilities by 8%. (Frenesia di Grigiomanto, Taglio Brutale, , Menomazione, Fuoco Lunare, Graffio, Artigliata, Spazzata, Falciata, Squarcio)
Developer's Notes: Feral's playstyle feels good, but isn't putting up the numbers that it should be, so we're giving them an across-the-board damage buff.
- Esperienza di Combattimento (Pet Passive) now increases the damage of primary pets by 60% (was 50%).
Developer's Notes: This is primarily a damage buff to Beast Mastery, but will have a tiny benefit to Survival and occasionally Marksmanship as well.
- Tiro Arcano now generates 8 Focus (was 5).
- Tiro Multiplo now generates 3 Focus per target hit (was 2).
- Crotali damage increased by 33%.
Developer's Notes: Marksmanship has given a lot of feedback that the rotation often winds up casting too many consecutive Focus generators. We are making two changes: first, helping avoid that problem by increasing the Focus generation of Tiro Arcano and Tiro Multiplo. Second, making it more attractive to use Crotali in more situations, for players who prefer the pacing of the rotation with that talent.
- Increased the damage of most Fire spells and abilities by 3% (Ondata di Fuoco, Tempesta Cinerea, Soffio del Drago, Detonazione di Fuoco, Palla di Fuoco, Pozza delle Fiamme, Colonna di Fuoco, Bomba Vivente, Meteora, Fiamme della Fenice, Pirosfera, Bruciatura).
- Pirosfera mana cost reduced by 20%.
- Colonna di Fuoco mana cost reduced by 17%.
Developer's Notes: Under certain circumstances, it was possible for Fire to run out of mana. It's only intended that mana is a constraint on Fire's utility, not its damage.
- Increased the damage of most Frost spells and abilities by 4% (Dardo d'Ebano, Blizzard, Cone of Cold, Raffica di Colpi, , Dardo di Gelo, Globo Congelato, Lancia di Ghiaccio, Esplosione di Ghiaccio, Dardo d'Acqua, Raggio di Gelo, ).
- Tempesta di Comete damage increased by 30%.
- Raffica di Colpi now fires its missiles faster.
Developer's Notes: Tempesta di Comete is failing to live up to expectations, so we're buffing its damage. The Flurry change will help Raffica di Colpi feel more responsive, while simultaneously solving a potential issue where Gelo Invernale could apply to two Lancia di Ghiaccios (instead of just one, as intended) at extremely high Haste levels.
Lancio del Barile damage increased by 10%, and it no longer deals reduced damage to 6+ targets.
- Soffio di Fuoco damage increased 11%.
Developer's Notes: Brewmasters could use a bit of help on damage, especially in AoE.
Crociata now increases damage and Haste by 3% per stack (down from 3.5%).
- Lama della Giustizia damage increased by 20%, unchanged in PvP.
Developer's Notes: Retribution's total damage is looking quite strong in 7.1.5, which is fine on its own. However, how that damage is delivered matters quite a bit as well. We've been seeing more and more than Paladinos find that the optimal way to maximize their performance is to focus everything they can on boosting their damage during Crociata. This creates a number of problems, including: Crociata feels mandatory, your damage feels very unrewarding outside of Crociata, trinkets and artifact traits are viewed as either amazing or terrible based on whether they synergize with Crociata, and others.
As such, we're going to tone down Crociata, and compensate with a buff to Lama della Giustizia. For those that had maximized Crusade to an extreme degree, this may result in a small overall nerf – this is intended. This change also helps prevent Martello Divino from being too dominant in single-target situations.
Dungeons and Raids Gul'dan
Dardo del Caos damage increased by 9%.
- Pioggia di Fuoco damage increased by 30%.
- Cataclisma damage increased by 29%.
Developer's Notes: Destruction's damage isn't as high as it should be. In particular, some of its spells that should feel the most rewarding aren't hitting hard enough, especially in AoE situations. We're buffing the damage of those spells.
