You know the marriage is over when you truly... truly just don't care anymore.

Thanks ******s.
This is actually a buff to virulence, this is essentially the equivalent of having a 50% crit chance on both dots, which is godlike crit chance unless you're running very low alacrity and very high crit/mastery.

Yeah I did too the first time, thought it said 1 energy per crit which would've been a massive nerf but instead it's a decent buff.

Can anyone elaborate on Pooled Hatred changes?! Did it get nerfed and only affects Shatter and Force Crush?! I know it had a problem of being triggered by dots earlier but does it still work as it used to otherwise with just applying the damage bonus for the full duration (initial+dot) of said abilities?

DevNotes: We noticed a disparity between damage output on the Carnage discipline from players that could successfully “clip” a Vicious Throw in a Ferocity window and those who couldn’t, due to factors outside of their control like server latency. Clipping lead to being able to use 3 abilities affected by Ferocity during the original 3 second window instead of 2. To remedy this, we changed Ferocity to be stack based, with 2 stacks lasting 10 seconds. Additionally, Ferocity now only affects certain abilities, making it possible for players to use a less optimal ability during the window without sacrificing a stack Ferocity.

Although this will look like a DPS loss, Carnage’s target DPS has always been calculated without “clipping” in mind, so this change should effectively normalize Carnage’s DPS to our target.



i dont even...
With enough alacrity we could always use 3 abilities even without clipping.
Under berserk it was 3 abilities without clipping again no matter what. So what is this 2 stack thing?
This just confirms that the balance guy doesnt play the game.
We are talking about at least 800 dps loss,does he know that??
Not to mention that Fury now will have more burst than carnage.With the recent buff to it it will also have more substained so may i politely ask what is the role that carnage will fill now???
