World of Warcraft The War Within: All Warlock Changes Coming

World of Warcraft Dragonflight has been one of the best DLCs that the WoW community has seen in quite some time, and with the current patch being the last major content update for a while, players are always looking for new ways to get involved.

Now, The War Within Alpha is here, and Blizzard has detailed some changes they're looking to make to Warlocks. 

Here's what we know so far. 

World of Warcraft The War Within: All Warlock Changes Coming

Blizzard has outlined the changes here, but we've got them pasted below for ease of access. 

Core Goals

  • Ensure each capstone is interesting and exciting.
  • Reduce the amount of throughput talents, to free up utility choices.
  • Reduce the number of ranks for talents that don’t warrant multiple ranks.

The Affliction specialization tree forces a choice between a single-target or multi-target profile rather than providing a viable build that is adaptable in both situations. We want to redesign, introduce, and remove talents, as well as address the tuning of Malefic Rapture to help reduce this friction.

For Demonology, we want to address the number of long cooldowns available as well as reduce the amount of resource flooding. We’ll also look at underused talents such as Doom. The feedback provided during Season 3 was instrumental in helping illuminate a path forward for Doom, and you should expect a redesign of it in a future build.

For Destruction, we have plans to reduce the fluctuation in power based on target count. We also want to take another look at how Destruction plays in multi-target situations and look for ways to improve underused talents such as Cataclysm and Soulfire.

More to come
As always, we’re reading feedback and discussing other changes. We’re still monitoring discussions about Hero Talents, and will make adjustments as needed.
