Blizzard is doing everything they can to make sure that World of Warcraft is in as good of a shape as it can be for the upcoming release of the new expansion, World of Warcraft: Shadowlands. \n \n \n \nEarlier today, we discussed a few changes coming in a large patch that they'll be releasing on November 17th. The patch consists of a variety of hotfixes, making alterations both in and out of the title. \n \n \n \nOne of the changes we discussed was some alterations coming to the World of Warcraft Companion App to get it ready for the content in the Shadowlands. Others have focused more on the classes and balancing them out. \n \n \n \nOf those classes, Enhancement Shaman and Shadow Priest have some of the most dominant changes. There's plenty to discuss, so let's hop on in! \nhttps:\/\/twitter.com\/Wowhead\/status\/1325936203171041282?s=20 \n \n \n \nEnhancement Shaman has been one of the weakest specializations for quite some time, meaning it's a good thing to see these buffs coming in. There are eleven changes, with two being nerfs - slight decreases to the damage of Forceful Winds Windfury and Hailstorm Frost Shock. Aside from that, we have the following buffs: \n \n \n \n \nWindfury Weapon proc damage increased by 240% \nHealing Surge healing increased by 50% \nMaelstrom Weapon spending abilities have had damage\/healing increased by 30% \nFeral Spirit's pet damage increased by 270% \nHot Hand resets the cooldown of Lava Lash when activated \nIce Strike and Fire Nova damage increased by 75% \nElemental Blast damage increased by 25% \nLashing Flames duration increased to 20 seconds \n \nShadow Priest has a bit more of a mix of buffs and nerfs. The following changes are planned: \n \nDark Thoughts duration increased to 10 seconds \nMind Flay and Mind Sear damage reduced by 15% \nDevouring Plague's initial damage and periodic damage reduced by 15% and 12% respectively \nSearing Nightmare Insanity cost reduced to 30 \nAuspicious Spirits generates 2 Insanity, damage increase towards Shadowy Apparitions reduced to 15% \nShadow Crash no longer has 3 charges and no longer applies vulnerability debuff. However, damage has been increased by 100% and cooldown reduced to 30 seconds \nVoid Torrents duration reduced to 3 seconds, damage increased by 20%. Now generates 60 Insanity, no longer refreshes DoTs, and has had its cooldown reduced to 30 seconds \n \nThese changes are a powerful arrangement between the two. Enhancement Shaman has been weak enough lately that these sizeable buffs are a breath of fresh air for the specialization. \nShadow Priest has been in the opposite position - prepatch has seen them as one of the strongest specializations in the game. This mix of nerfs and buffs will keep them in a better balance with the changing meta coming with the new expansion.
