11 23 22 class tuning

Dragonflight is really shaking up how classes function with the new talent system and we’re seeing many tuning changes on our way to full launch. Oddly enough this one is going to be slated for the day after the launch of Dragonflight.

It doesn’t appear there will be any massive changes found in this particular slew of buffs and nerfs with it being mostly conservative tweaks rather than 25% damage nerfs across the board as has been seen recently. We’re looking at changes to Demon Hunters, Paladins, Priests, Rogues, and Warriors. Anyone not on that list can now either breathe a sigh of relief or a groan of frustration as is respective of whether you think you needed a nerf or a buff.
