Some details and theory about big changes to the Witch Doctor’s Firebats in Patch v1.08.that the Witch Doctor skill Firebats was changed, but it has now been revealed that this was not a full change.Diablo 3 Gold.The full change will come in the next PTR build when they buff the damage as was revealed by Grimiku:The change is only half-in on the PTR; the mana cost changes are in but the damage buff is not, but both will be fixed before the patch goes live, for both people who are still playing the WD.

Here is a quote from Wyatt that explains what happened a little better, and a link to the thread if you want to read more.

Wyatt: The DiabloWikiFirebats changes were halfway done when we snapshotted the PTR patch. The mana cost change was one change. The other change is buffing the damage of Firebats. The mana change made this PTR patch, the damage change did not. Look for it in the next PTR patch after this one.It’s not exactly a nerf and it’s intended to change the way the skill is used (long channeling as opposed to short bursts).

Firebats is not intended to step on either of those roles. Since it is a channeling skill, and some of the runes already play into standing still, we want to make Firebats a solid damage choice if you find you can stand in one spot for a few seconds. Will it be for everybody? No. Will it replace Bears and Acid Cloud? Hopefully not.

We’re not trying to introduce more powerful choices for existing playstyles (ie. I play the same way as I did before but I spew bats instead of bears), instead, we’re trying to introduce alternate mechanics to create alternate playstyles. It may not be for everybody, but it should be for somebody.I've also seen a few post reporting that the mana cost for Firebats doesn't seem to have changed correctly, but the tooltip did.
