Battle for Azeroth: New Formula for Calculating Ability Damage - Thu, 15 Feb 2018 09:03:52 -0600
In alpha build 26010, we found that Melee & Hunter abilities which were previously based on weapon damage now instead use attack power as a direct coefficient. On live, attack power based abilities ignore weapon damage entirely, raising questions of whether weapons would scale poorly for everyone without greatly increased stats, weapon damage would no longer exist, or some other unknown change.

Blizzard on Hunter Pet Specialization Changes in Battle for Azeroth - Tue, 13 Feb 2018 22:59:00 -0600
Blizzard has shared thoughts on Hunter Pet Specialization changes in Battle for Azeroth. On the Alpha, we datamined many changes including abilities related to each specialization, new specializations for certain pet families, and new utility abilities for families that were previously lacking them.

However, some confusion stemmed from using terminology that was previously associated with a DPS/health disparity among pets in previous expansions.

Afterwards, during patch 7.3, most casters received updated animations, but a couple were left off, one of those being Destruction Warlocks.
