At Blizzcon, they've announced a groundbreaking warlock class change. That large bag of 28 soul shards in my inventory will soon become obsolete.
No longer will soul shards be inventory items, yipee.. Soon, I'll have 20+ free bag slots opening up! Dump that shard bag... Sorry to all those tailors, hope you didn't have to grind for that soul bag pattern... :D
No longer consumed out of combat. Based on the slides, it looks similar to the combo-points on rogue classes. These will provide 3 shard abilities per fight. Fire off one shard requiring spell and it will open up other spells that are improved by the first. Sort of like how Conflagrate requires Immolate being up. Did I hear you say PowerAuras? :)
I am eagerly looking forward to these changes..
