WoW: Weaker due to sockets? Rextroy PvP video reveals bugs again

In one of his earlier videos, WoW player Rextroy already showed how you can oneshot enemy players even naked thanks to the broken PvP scaling.

especially complicated when sockets suddenly come into play

as well


As Rextroy shows in his latest video, adding a Versatility socket, which is supposed to reduce damage taken and increase damage dealt, can reduce your damage dealt and even make you take more damage. However, you'll only really know this if you compare the damage numbers on your opponent's screen ..
