Enough with the Math: T10 Bonus QQing

Warlock T10 set bonuses are up on the PTR notes!
  • Warlock T10 2P Bonus - The critical strike chance of your Shadowbolt, Incinerate, and Corruption spells is increased by 5%.
  • Warlock T10 4P Bonus - Each time your Immolate and Unstable Affliction spells deal periodic damage, you have a 15% chance to gain 12% spell haste for 10 sec.
I'm slightly disappointed. The critical strike chance is fine.The 4 point bonus is a little bit too much math with a a % chance of a % haste gain. Meanwhile, Ret Pallies get "Your Seals and Judgements deal 10% additional damage." Why not, "Your Immolate and Unstable Affliction spells gain 5% haste for the length of the spell." Even the Mages "Your Hot Streak, Missile Barrage, and Brain Freeze talents also grant you 12% haste for 3 sec when the effect of the talent is consumed." Three seconds is quite a bit shorter than 10 seconds, but I'd rather have something that always happens than some that might happen twice during a boss fight.

Not that I'll likely have much chance of getting the T10 gear. But I want my fellow Warlocks that are more hardcore to have a chance at something really good. All we can really hope for is that unlike the hideousness that was T9, our T10 will look beautifully evil and dead sexy.

Yeah but look at the Ret Pally 2 set. It's a chance per melee to reset a cooldown, so it's not a steady damage increase either. Usually there is 1 set bonus for consistent gain and 1 RNG/proc type deal. Not always, but a majority of the time.

They just changed the 2 and 4 set bonus for Warlocks tonight anyway lol. I'm sure it'll be changing again too!

As for the Mage bonus, it procs off of other procs, so it's also not a consistent damage increase. Even their 4 piece, it only boosts their damage using Mirror Image, but the trade off in my opinion is that their 2 set bonus will proc a lot more often, especially with the recent change to Arcane Blast's Missile Barrage proc rate.

So far the only DPS classes to get 2 set bonuses that are consistent DPS increases are Shadow Priests, kitty Druids (although it's debatable since the energy reduction just makes their rotation easier to stomach) and Elemental Shaman to an extent. But mainly just Shadow Priests and honestly they need all the help they can get ;).

Shadow priests do need some extra help. They're pretty borked at the moment! I feel for you. I think I'm just grumbly about having to do math.

Yeah, I haven't raided on mine in a bit but they don't seem to have gotten much better since I started raiding full time on my Warlock and Moonkin.

Simple set bonuses are always a good thing but they normally average out to be the same ~3% DPS increase for most classes. Procs just make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside =)
