When I posted about the size of our dps increase in the patch, I assumed that we’d see an “adjustment” in the future. Well, it didn’t even take a week. Its already been hotfixed into the game.
Hunger for Blood now increases a rogue’s damage by 10% down from 15%.
Mutilate still has a significant buff overall from the patch. Looking at my dps test in my previous post, I had seen a 936 dps increase due to the patch changes. About 145 of that was from the Murder change, and that is situational so I’ll pull that out. Adjusting the HfB buff down from 15% to 10% would then bring the figures down by another 35 dps. That would still leave me with a very healthy 756 dps increase over my pre-patch figures.
This isn’t doom-and-gloom. We’re still well ahead of where we were before, and we knew it was coming.
