Rumors have been flying all day, and now it's official: warlocks on the beta realms have been nerfed. From Nethaera:
  • I just wanted to take some time to drop in and reassure people that the change to the dots is intentional as a part of ongoing balancing that we have been doing. It is not a bug.

    Just so that everyone knows a bit more the approximate damage reduction is 10% for "Curse of Agony" and "Corruption" for the average Warlock.
It looks like this is achieved through lowering the +damage coefficient for DoTs; specifically, Warlock DoTs now seem to be receiving somewhat less than 100% of your +damage. This means that well-geared Warlocks with high +damage will feel more pain from this.

Well, everyone asked for it, and now they've got it. Warlocks got a whack with the nerf bat. Did they deserve it?
