It’s Over! Large Vengeance Demon Hunter Nerfs on Weekly Reset

Blizzard announced upcoming Class Tunings on Weekly Reset, May 7th. Demon Hunter Tanks have currently dominated the Mythic Dungeons, and are now receiving large nerfs.

Currently, Demon Hunter tanks dominate the Mythic+ Scene due to their strong utility, which in most cases is needed to control several adds in Dungeons. Most Dragonflight dungeons were designed with a significant amount of crowd control needed, like for example Nokhud Offensive.

Class Tuning Incoming May 7th

We have continued to closely monitor data on class performance and feedback from players. With scheduled weekly maintenance in each region, we’ll make the following adjustments to classes that are over- and under-performing in group content and PvP.

Classes

  • Demon Hunter

      • Sigil of Silence duration reduced to 4 seconds (was 5 seconds).

      • Soul Cleave damage reduced by 8%.

    • Protection
      • Developers’ notes: Our goal for these changes is to reduce Protection Warrior deaths to the dangers that are most likely to kill them, like burst or magic damage. There are some talents that warriors have for protection against these threats, like Disrupting Shout, Bolster, or Battle-Scarred Veteran, but it can be difficult to find the talent points for them. To provide more build flexibility we are reducing the power of the Battering Ram talent and moving its damage and defensive benefits into core abilities. We’re also increasing damage across the board and buffing some defensive talent options.
      • All ability damage increased by 5%.
      • Devastator damage increased by 30%.
      • Ignore Pain healing increased by 6%.
