I've mentioned a couple of times that we want to simplify Affliction's rotation a little. Making the dot durations more consistent would help, but so would things like getting a couple of spells (Immolate and Siphon Life maybe) out of the rotation.
I'm not talking about nerfing Affliction, nor making those changes in a vacuum. This would be a redesign so that things felt more natural with ~4 abilities instead of ~6.
Feedback is, of course, appreciated.
So, it sounds like we may see something "soon" in terms of helping out with affliction rotations. You can be sure that I will make any/all necessary changes to the affliction how-to raid guide. I will also update the guide right before WOTLK to be more inline with level 80 raiding. Nothing major will change, except for the DPCT numbers and the spec used.
In my humble opinion, I think raising the duration of Immolate and UA to 18 seconds, and the duration of Haunt to 15 seconds would go a long way in fixing rotations. At the same hand though, if they are going to do a revamp to remove some of the lower DPCT dots by giving our filler something stronger, this would help the rotation as well as the debuff limit problem!
