Class Mechanics Changes Outlined - MMORPG.com

As the time for the World of Warcraft Cataclysm expansion nears, Blizzard is preparing to launch the 4.0.1 patch. Part of the upcoming patch launches the announced class mechanics changes. The official forums have been updated with a post outlining some of the more significant class alterations coming when 4.0.1 deploys.

Warlocks

Soul Shards

  • As items, Soul Shards are going away entirely.
  • Any shard bags used to store Soul Shards will automatically be converted into a bag of roughly equal value.
  • Soul Shards are now a new resource for warlocks. Each warlock will have a total of three. These Soul Shards can be expended using a new spell, Soul Burn, which allows the warlock to augment the next spell cast. The augmentation effect will vary depending on which spell is used, and all warlock spells which can be empowered by Soul Burn will have a tooltip listing of the effect it grants. Soul Shards will no longer be necessary for summoning demons or casting any other spell typically used when out of combat.

Read the full list class-by-class on the official forums.
