Patch 3.2.2 has brought some new, or rather updated, content and seemingly a few initial performance issues for many. There's the usual smattering of class and item changes you would expect of a minor patch. You have to look pretty hard to find anything about Warlocks though.
Every other class has its own little section detailing the tweaks and tunings of their class or even specs but what about us? True, it does go some way to bolstering our megalomaniacal nature -- we're just too good to mess with, let these 'other' classes change instead. I had to look all the way down to the bug fixes before I even saw the word 'Warlock'.
So what has been fixed?
- Demonic Circle appears to have been buffed to remove the Frostfire Bolt snare, but this is actually a Frostfire Bolt nerf as the same is true of Vanish, Hand of Freedom and Master's Call. Is a Mage nerf better than a Warlock buff ? Too close too call, its good news either way.
- Fel Armor seems to have become somewhat friendlier to trinkets. I've not had chance to test it yet but I expect that this is referring to the healing tick triggering trinkets such as The Egg of Mortal Essence and Ancient Pickled Egg rather than simply an on-cast effect. On the down-side however Fel Armor will no longer trigger the Lightweave Embroidery effect.
Something else that has turned up is that the tier nine four-piece set bonus has been fixed. You might not have noticed that it was broken (especially if you don't have four pieces of tier nine) as it did actually do exactly what it said it would do. Immolate, Corruption, and Unstable Affliction all received their 10% bonus. The problem was that Conflagrate, which bases its damage on that of Immolate or Shadowflame, didn't benefit from the increase.
There are certainly more bugs that need addressing and it's a shame they aren't included, but it's a step in the right direction.
