    Default BP fixed on Alpha Shard.

    'Reduces the Mage's melee and casting speed by 10%, and increases the melee and casting speed of group and raid members within 20 meters by 10%. Deals 51 to 55 Fire damage to the enemy when the Mage casts a debuff on them. Lasts 5 minutes. Damage is not triggered by Polymorph, Confuse, Root or Fear abilities. Damage cannot occur more than once every 1.5 seconds.'

    I lol'd.

    On the bright side, Mage damage may have been increase very slightly.

    All I can say is that, if Warrior Talents have been fixed and the Alpha is not currently having implemented the balance patch and we're set for more buffs, we're headed towards a nerf in the future.

    so BP is still the same, except it does not trigger on CC anymore (which is good when it doesnt)?

    Now what if I have Burning Purpose up, cast Pillaging Stone directly followed with Lingering Dust? Technically both spells should proc BP, but they are casted within 1.5 sec. If this scenario causes BP to deal damage only once, it's HUGE oversight. And it isn't just for Lingering Dust. This applies to any Pillaging Stone + instant debuff.
    Which is worse? Ignorance or apathy? Who knows? Who cares?

    Uh.

    Since you are debuffing twice within a 1.5s window, it is only going to proc once, which seems to be working intended? Unless I'm missing something here.

    What I was trying to point out is that now on live shards you get 2 procs of Burning Purpose. With the change from Alpha, it will deal damage only once. So even if you play Archon as intented on Alpha you suffer collateral damage from the change.

    I'm just trying to politely say that this is also a nerf to Archons. Not huge one, but certainly unnecessary.


    In other words:
    The BP change has been made to prevent Archons abuse Plague Bolt and Grave Rot. I'm perfectly fine with that. But the solution should be that good to have no drawbacks or collateral damages. This one punishes Archons even if they play as they are supposed to.

    * Burning Purpose: The damage proc can now only occur a maximum of once every 1.5 seconds. Fixed an issue so that the damage proc is only affected by buffs active on the caster at the time it is triggered. Updated description on this ability to reflect current functionality.
    Buff stacking has been fixed as well, so yeah Archon just got gutted DPS wise. My Grave Rot is crying a river of tears right now.

    Needed but still sad, very very sad.

    Yeah, I got salty nothin' going on.

    It was a support soul, BP still fulfills its role without being broken. I doubt it was meant to be a 5-man DPS king.

    It wasn't the 5man DPS king, warriors (beastmasters in particular) were and probably still are after this patch.

    It was definitely overpowered compared to other mage souls dps wise though.
