This is a list of what is proposed as class changes for Madness Sorc and Balance Sage for patch 5.3

 

Hey folks,

Below you will find the upcoming changes for Madness and Balance coming in Game Update 5.3:
Note: All changes below are currently in development and are subject to change before being released.
Sorcerer
Madness

  • Changed Deathmark’s periodic damage boost from 10% to 15%
  • Devour now gives Force Leech a 30% damage bonus (up from 25%) when damaging enemies suffering from Affliction

Sage
Balance

  • Changed Force Suppression’s periodic damage boost from 10% to 15%
  • Mind’s Eye now gives Force Serenity a 30% damage bonus (up from 25%) when damaging targets suffering from Weaken Mind

DevNotes: The changes to Madness / Balance bring it up to its target DPS. We improved Deathmark / Force Suppression to boost the sustained damage that the Discipline can deal, and we improved Devour / Mind’s Eye to give Madness / Balance a survivability boost and damage increase in one fell swoop.
