|BELT OF THE TROVE NOT PROCING 4 PIECE INVOKERS||April-18-2016 11:07 PM PDT (8 years ago)|
|So I dont think that this needs further elaboration but as my title states the bombardment from my belt of the trove is not procing the 50% dmg reduction of the Invokers 4 piece set bonus. This makes running a gr70 nearly impossible when with this not being an issue in 2.4 invokers with decent gearing could pull off gr80+. Come on Blizz, invokers was crap for so long, now its good and you want to break out the nerf hammer on it again? for shame.|

Nice. Let us know if she updates you again on Twitter.
Or I can just swing by here. :)
I wanted to get a bit more detail before making this post, and I had the opportunity in one of my more recent meetings.
Let's talk procs. We have a general philosophy that, for both performance and balance reasons, procs shouldn't proc other procs.
However, there are some items in the game that are an exception to that rule. Belt of the Trove is one such design; it was totally created in mind to work with the Invoker 4-piece set bonus. So, when we were doing our optimization passes to reinforce our basic philosophy, we accidentally impacted this and a couple other similar situations (specifically Blade of the Tribes and Lut Socks).
We've done a pass to correct these, and these changes have been hotfixed onto the current PTR. For the most part, going forward, you should expect that procs shouldn't proc other procs (including Area Damage)... but if there's an exception that seems weird, please let me know. I'm happy to forward on the feedback for review!
