    Default How are the new Whestones and Witchstones a nerf?

    So I'm not claiming they aren't, I just don't understand how 320 damage on crit is less than 15% extra damage on crit. Most of my crits are not above 2k so was this a change to the maximum damage bonus and it still does a percentage of the crit or is it a straight +320 to all crits. If it is the latter it actually seems like crits would do substantially more.

    So.. what gives?

    You mean Weaponstones, not Whetstones.

    Chance on crit now? Craptastic. I must have totally missed that. What is the chance?

    Low enough for them (Witchstones) to be a total waste of time unless you're extremely driven to get a tiny amount of extra dps (and I mean tiny).

    That said, I use them, but they aren't worth it objectively, anymore.

    Based on my testing in a necrolock build it increases dps by about 30.

    Checked my parses from greenscale today. I'm getting one proc every 100 spell hits (testing out warlock/necro). I don't know about you but that seems pretty pathetic to me.

    I use ACT so I looked at just the information on the witchstone's damage during our GSB runs, it was usually like 30-35 DPS.
