people only talk about self healing because this is all they see in details. And often times its the only thing blizzard devs look at aswell.
This mindset got hybrid offhealing in Shadowlands nerfed many times but at the same time 20 sec evasion of outlaw stayed the way it was for a very long time.
Nerfing selfhealing and not taking into account that hybrid offhealing is a major part of hybrids defensives is a bad take. Enhance and Ret for example rely heavily on it.
If we are talking about self healing we also need to talk about self sustain and overall passive tankiness, CC and Mobility.
So if a warlock is saying that enhance self healing is too strong by directly comparing it to warlocks’ self healing is completely ignoring the fact that Warlock has better Mobility, more CC and stronger defensives besides self healing.
Yes, DK nerfs are significant, maybe too much. I dont know. But DK also has Will of the Necropolis, which reduces all incoming damage by 35% below 30% HP. Thats something…
Do I think dps specs are too tanky? Some, yes.
Should self healing be the only thing that is being adressed when talking about defensive nerfs? Definitely not
