    Aftershocker gonna get nerfed eh,

    and also the dps on my healer build :c which doesnt really matter.

    Funny thing is, just before the patch notes hit in, I was messing around with vorpal salvo, saw the dps was quite low and was like
    "hmm, what if it actually did some more dps?"
    and a bit later, there I was, seeing that vorpal is gonna get buffed lol

    Aftershocker is just fine

    Parse before Nerfs

    What they changed is the aftershock damage obviously, but they also fixed the 6th stack of Font of Savagery so the nerf is not nearly as bad as it looks.

    Vulcanist is going in the right direction, not as competitive but its still something else to play around with. The really cruddy thing is there is too many good legendaries in vulcanist, so you have basically have to choose between Vorpal or Molten (Molten Being Better). But like I said the changes are a step in the right direction

    Well the notes hadnt stated anything bout sav stacks getting fixed or all that lol,
    And yeah, vulcanist's the tricky guy around.

    Still trying to figure a build to get the most out of vorpal and see if it can actually do anything

    The avatar buff is so weird. What abilities do fire and earth damage currently? I don't think we even have any...

    I know Legendary eth beam counts as fire/earth but it still only deals ethereal damage.

    If avatar effects legendary eth beam though, then that's a 80% buff while it's up, plus a 40% buff passively, soooooo yeah it will hit super hard and will most likely get nerfed anyways.
    Internet 101 : If anyone disagrees with you, they must be angry that you're right.

    Yeah it is pretty weird. I think its exclusively Eth Beam

    Dont know when it got updated, but latest PTS has Savage Blow nerfed pretty bad.

    It now stacks up to only 2 times.

    Used to push 80k dps on SB pre nerf, now its more like 40-45k.

    So yeah, 35-40k nerf. Needless to say, affects all specs...

    Last I saw, font bonus is down to 9% per stack, and tectonic spike bonus to aftershock is down to 75%. Hopefully font stacks get fixed while they're gutting the spec.

    I understand aftershock hit way too hard, but these nerfs drop us down to the low tier of the DPS spectrum. A buff or two in other aspects of the spec to keep us mid tier damage. It would also be nice to see some buffs/fixes to berserker and typhoon as well.
