Affliction and Destruction recently got a change to mana costs as well in a set of Hotfixes.
The mana cost of Shadow Bolt has been reduced by 25%.
- The mana cost of Demonbolt has been reduced by 25%.
Developers’ note: Demonology Warlocks are running out of mana in prolonged fights when using high levels of Haste so we’re reducing the mana costs of their most frequent rotational spells.
Items and Rewards
- Corrupted Items
Players with a Corruption level of 200 or higher will now receive an additional negative effect, Inescapable Consequences, which deals 25% of your maximum health in damage every second while you are in combat.
Developers’ note: While Corruption’s damage taken and healing received debuffs are substantial at high Corruption amounts, players possessed of particular ingenuity have constructed strategies allowing them to deal nearly infinite damage during brief windows when they themselves are immune to damage. It’s important to us that players feel like they can play around with how much Corruption they can afford to wear, but we’re setting a hard limit at 200 Corruption – going beyond that, N’Zoth’s dark power will defeat you.
