will see a couple of abilities tweaked in this Alpha update, based on feedback received. We think these should help their usability going forward. Thank you very much for your continued feedback.Blood
- Rune Tap global cooldown removed.
Developers' notes: Rune Tap was made baseline in Shadowlands, but also had a GCD added, which was not present in Battle for Azeroth. We're reverting this change to bring it back to its current functionality.
- Outbreak duration of Virulent Plague increased to 28 seconds (was 21 seconds).
- Outbreak AoE range increased to 10 (was 8).
Developers' notes: We changed how Virulent Plague functions in Shadowlands. To compensate for the loss of uptime of Virulent Plague, we've increased its duration and increased the initial AoE application, so it doesn't require such tight grouping to maximize the targets hit.
