Nerfing Combat Logs: Will It Happen? Should It Happen?

Hey everyone,

Wowhead recently posted an article about 3rd-party programs using the game’s combat logs to draw overlays during raid fights.

Should, or will, combat log nerfing occur?

My opinion is: yes it should be nerfed. Blizzard should do what they need to break this if it means nerfing logs by breaking the functionality that allows this to happen, or any other means. Blizzard created private auras, and in response people created a means of working around it. Break that workaround please!

We intend to make changes to how the Advanced Combat Log is populated, in advance of Dragonflight Season 3, that will prevent its use in this way.
