Big Changes Coming to World PvP With Today's Maintenance

Big Changes Coming to World PvP With Today's Maintenance - MMORPG.com

If you're a fan of World of Warcraft's version of world PvP, then you may want to sit up and take note. After today's maintenance, a significant update to world PvP is coming. Several legendary items that have been a source of frustration are being nerfed to "reduce the initial burst damage dealt by players...giving the player being attacked more opportunity to react". In addition, non-tank specs will take 40% less damage while engaged in world PvP.

We have reduced the PvP effectiveness of a number of trinkets and Legion Legendaries that contributed to excessive burst damage:

  • Draught of Souls now deals 70% less damage to enemy players
  • Cold Heart now deals 75% less damage to enemy players
  • Kil’Jaeden’s Burning Wish now deals 60% less damage to enemy players
  • Insignia of Ravenholdt now deals 50% less damage to enemy players
  • Pillars of Inmost Light now increase Eye of Tyr damage by 150% when attacking players (was 300%)
  • Scarlet Inquisitor’s Expurgation now increases Divine Storm damage by 3% per stack when attacking players (was 6% per stack)
  • The Dreadlord’s Deceit now increases the damage of Shuriken Storm by 6% per stack when attacking players (was 25% per stack)
  • Fiery Red Maimers now increase Maim damage by 165% when attacking players (was 500%)

According to Ion Hazzikostas during Blizzcon 2017, his goal is to "make world PvP great again". This appears to be the first step in that initiative.
