Blizzcon 2013 – WoW Warlock & Warrior Changes

We’re back to the World of Warcraft updates now, with several class changes provided for the journey from level 90 to level 100 in the Warlords of Draenor expansion.

These are the Warlock and Warrior changes that have been earmarked so far.


Chaotic Resources:

Affliction – Soulburn: Haunt – Passive – Grants the Soulburn empowerment to your Haunt spell. Your Haunt spell also grants you 15% increased periodic damage for 30 seconds.

Demonology – Furious Chaos – Passive – Touch of Chaos no longer costs Demonic Fury, and instead generates 40 Demonic Fury, but Metamorphosis provides 30% less increased damage.

Destruction – Charred Remains – Passive – Incinerate and Conflagrate deal 75% less damage, but generate 400% more Burning Embers.

Cataclysm – 40 yard range – 2.6 second cast – 60 second cooldown – Conjures a cataclysm at the target location, dealing 10000 Shadowflame damage to all enemies within 8 yards:
Affliction & Demonology: Also applies Corruption.
Destruction: Also applies Immolate.

Demonic Servitude – Passive – You are now able to maintain your control over even greater demons indefinitely, allowing you to summon Doomguards and Infernals as permanent pets.


Blade Barrier – Passive – When you Whirlwind or Thunder Clap, whirling blades continue to spin around you for 30 seconds. These blades do 1000 damage every 1 second to all enemies within 8 yards.

Ravager – 40 yard range – 0.879 second cast – 60 second cooldown – Throw a whirling axe at the target location that inflicts 3000 damage to enemies within 8 yards every 1 second. Lasts 15 seconds.

Extreme Measures:
