Upcoming Weekly Reset Brings Buffs To Underperforming World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands Classes
Blizzard has been hard at work with ensuring that the balance of their classes in World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is as honed as possible. With so many massive changes, such a task is more daunting than one might think.
Many would argue that they haven’t quite been successful in this task either, as more and more players seem to find themselves forced into picking specific covenants or specializations to remain competitive or even just effective.

But Blizzard has been pushing out some sizeable class changes with every patch of the expansion, and their newest round of changes are set to come out this Tuesday with the weekly reset. There’s plenty of buffs here to some of the underperforming specs to make them competitive again!
Frost Death Knights are being given another buff, with all damaging abilities having their damage increased by 5%. This is a considerable increase and stacks with the previous buff that only focused 2-handed Frost users.

Havoc Demon Hunters are being buffed by a smaller amount as well. Havoc is having the damage of all damaging abilities increased by 3%. The same buff is being given to Frost Mages, both of which are some of the most underperforming specs in the game at the moment.
Hunters are seeing some changes, with a 5% buff to the damage of both Beast Mastery and Survival. Both of these specs are incredibly weak at the moment and will likely need more than this buff to make them viable again.
The same can be said for Assassination Rogues, which is undoubtedly the weakest of the three specs at the moment. While the 5% buff being given to the spec is considerable, Assassination will almost undoubtedly need more than that to be competitive again.
Warriors are seeing a buff to all of their DPS as well. Arms and Fury are both being given a 3% buff to all damaging abilities, which marks the third flat damage increase for fury. The spec has seen a remarkable amount of buffs due to being incredibly weak and undertuned in comparison to others.
The final changes are Enhancement Shaman, which is being given a 3% increase to damage, and Destruction Warlock, which also is seeing a 5% increase to damage. These flat buffs will hopefully bring these classes back into competition.

Whether this will be enough will only be seen once the class tunings are given out. With so many changes coming at reset – including the final soulbind row unlock for some covenant bindings – DPS is undoubtedly going to be strengthened.

Upcoming World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands Patch To Make Changes To Covenant Sanctum Table Missions
Blizzard’s newest patch coming on the Tuesday weekly reset is set to make some changes to the World of Warcraft: Shadowlands Covenant Sanctum mission tables.
These changes are primarily buffs, especially for the Venthyr table which many have felt is considerably weaker than others. The Kyrian covenant is also being targeted for a sizeable buff, with some stats being doubled or more.

The Necrolords of Maldraxxus aren’t being targeted for any sort of change, however. Many seem to consider the Necrolord covenant to have the strongest table adventurers and troops, so it’s understandable to see it left off of the buffs.
The Night Fae of Ardenweald will only see one change, which isn’t quite a bug or a nerf so much as a redesign. The Ardenweald Trapper’s Bramble Trap will now be a 1-cooldown ability that deals damage and reduces the opponent’s damage for their next attack.

Beginning with the Venthyr, we see buffs across the entire table without a single nerf. Most of these are directed at the adventurer companions themselves rather than the troops available, with the only change to the troops that’s being made being the listed-above change to the Ardenweald Trapper’s Bramble Trap redesign.
The biggest buffs are the spell effectiveness of Bogdan and Rahel, both of which have had their effectiveness increased by 100%. This is nothing compared to Stonehead, however, who has had his spell effectiveness increased by 400% at the trade of the cooldown being doubled.
Health increases are being seen across the board, with as much as 50% more for Lost Sybille and others averaging between 20% and 40% increases. Blizzard seems to have done this to make it so that adventurers can use their ability before being killed.
The Kyrians are seeing much the same, with Blizzard boosting abilities and increasing health to make the adventurers not quite so fragile. These changes are set to make it so that adventurers can actually get their abilities off.
The biggest increase is Telethakas, who has had their health doubled and their spell effectiveness increased by 167%. Kythekios has seen the same increase to their spell effectiveness amongst the other changes.

Overall, both the Kyrian and Venthyr covenants are seeing massive boosts for the weekly reset patch. This is far from an exhaustive list of changes so make sure you take a look at your champions before you send them out to make sure you’re getting the most out of them!
