After the class buffs: who will deal more damage?

According to the plan, the damage of all offensive abilities is simply increased slightly. The developer explains, however, that the values ​​now announced may change again until the update is released. However, you can currently expect the following changes:

  • Death Knight (Frost): All damage abilities are increased by five percent. In contrast, the damage of the PvP talent Chain Supercooling is reduced by ten percent.
  • Demon Hunter (Desolation): All damage abilities are increased by three percent.
  • Hunter (Animal Mastery): All damage abilities are increased by five percent.
  • Hunter (survival): All damage abilities are increased by five percent.
  • Mage (Frost): All damage abilities are increased by three percent.
  • Paladin (all): The aura of shadow resistance persists beyond death
  • Villain (assassination): All damage abilities are increased by five percent.
  • Shaman (reinforcement): All damage abilities are increased by three percent.
  • Warlock (Destruction): All damage abilities are increased by five percent.
  • Warriors (weapons): All damage abilities are increased by three percent.
  • Krieger (Furor): All damage abilities are increased by 3 percent.
  • Warriors (all): In addition, the Supreme Commander PvP talent reduces the cooldown of Inciting Scream to 60 seconds.

When will the changes come? As Blizzard explains in the official forum, the aforementioned adjustments will go live with the weekly server restart on February 3, 2021.

This is what the community says about the changes: Many players in the official WoW forum as well as on wowhead express incomprehension about the adjustments. For many, it seems as if Blizzard is simply going to full blown fire and generally increasing the damage a little instead of dealing with the individual specializations.

The class specialists at wowhead also find the changes to be of little help in their analysis because the increased damage is either still too low or the problem is elsewhere.
