PTR: Seed of Corruption Mistakenly, Hugely Buffed

Visited the PTRs recently? If you have, you undoubtedly noticed the bazillion Warlocks running around the place, LOL'ing at the top of their lungs in General and Trade chat and just about every other channel they can get their devilish little hands on. Why all the fresh hubbub and excitement? They've been bitten by a pretty serious and hilariously overpowered bug, that's why. Just check out these stats from AV to clue in on the matter:


How are numbers like that even possible? The word is that if you transfer a premade Warlock to the PTRs, you'll find two versions of our Seed of Corruption spell. One is the standard AoE/DoT hybrid that all Warlocks can eventually train, but the other is a special version that is instant cast, requires no mana, does about 2-3x more damage (overall damage done), and has a range of 60,000 yards. And if that weren't enough, it can also be cast while dead! On obvious mistake of course, and likely to be corrected soon, but that doesn't mean you can't have fun ruining the PTRs with it while it's available. =)

Just came back from a WSG on the PTR where you could find people hiding in all kinds of spots and doing this to each other. No one even cared about the flags...it was great!
