I dont get the latest Unholy Changes.
Obviously there are some issues atm. Mostly of Unholy DKs being too bursty in PvP and of them being mandatory in some PvE Encounters. The reason of this is Ebonplague and the way too high AoE Dmg.
Now they are doing something to tone down AoE by nerfing Unholy Blight for AoE Situations. But they are forgetting the real Problem, which is Disease Spreading.
Not only are Diseases doing way too much AoE dmg by itself, they are also bringing Ebonplague on every mob, which nobody else can do AND crypt fever to buff all other DKs in the Raid.
Now what are they doing in 3.2 to lower AoE? Nerfing Unholy Blight, well its ok but probably the wrong approach.
But what do I see today on mmo-champion? Disease dmg Buff by 15%, the 4 piece setbonus buffing diseases by a big amount (they can crit now) and the new sigil giving strength instead of buffing strikes, which will also result in increased Disease dmg (probably something like 6-7% considering 2k Basestrength in T9 gear).
This will result in much increased disease dmg and therefore in even higher AoE dmg compared too Single Target dmg, than right now. Diseases are Doing 30-35% in AoE Situations UB only 10-12%. Diseases being buffed will result in a higher dmg increase, than the loss of UB.
Ways of maybe fixing this:
Bloodstrikes instead of Diseases cause 20s Cryptfever/Ebonplague => 30% less Diseasedmg in AoE Situations. Ebonplague would be more inline with Warlock Curse/Moonkin thing.
Removing Wandering Plague and letting Unholy dots Single Target Crit without inner CD of 8s.
Obviously the 4pc T9 Bonus would have to be changed.
^ Any reason why a warrior is QQing in this thread?
And I've said this before - if DK's were meant to behave like another class then there would be no point in creating this class in the first place. Complaining about DK AOE is absurd when rogues or druids can pull off 10k+ AOE in a matter of seconds with a single button spam when a DK needs at least 3 seconds setup time and at least some understanding of rune cooldowns in order to maximise our AOE dps
