In Legion by Babylonius

Much of this is outdated now, see the newest article(s) for up to date information. As with the previous Path to 7.1.5 post, try not to draw hard conclusions from these sims. They’re simply steps in a process to get to the sims that we can start drawing conclusions from. These sims were not all done in order, so improvements …

In Legion by Babylonius

This will be short and I’ll update as more is discovered. Cenedril, Reflector of Hatred  Touch of Karma deals 300% increased damage. 150% increased damage. Not much to say about this, its a nerf. Many other legendaries also lost damage, but Windwalker certainly didn’t have much damage to give away. Its a bummer, but not unwarranted to a legendary that was …

Legion Sims 12.11 – Relics (I done goofed)

In Legion by Babylonius

What happened? So I’ll be upfront, I made a mistake, and I’m sorry.

PTR 7.1.5 (Nov 30) Part 3: Serenity Changes

In Legion by Babylonius

So, like I spoke about in Part 2, there was a change to Serenity on the PTR where it was no longer snapshotting the cooldown reduction.
