Combat Balance Changes

Cursed Staffs
  • Cataclysm (Damnation Staff):
    • Damage per Tick: 27 → 18
    • Tick Interval: 0.5s → 1s
75% damage nerf in one sitting... Like... WHAT? First they removed AoE escalation, then they nerf the damage, nerfed again with a 50% damage nerf. Then an ADDITIONAL 75% nerf. Like, what an actual joke.…?postID=966622#post966622

Not just that, they intend to allow smaller guilds to compete against these large scale guilds/alliances by implementing zone caps for guilds, and debuffs for largely outnumbered fights. Why would anyone even bring a damnation, when other weapons can simply outclass it? If a 10 man zerg tries to take on 15+, a damnation just does not hold merit to a fight like that anymore.

There is AOE escalation on Cataclysm.
