So I am not sure if others have noticed this but Sweeping Strikes is currently double dipping on resilience. SS is suppose to deal 50% of the main attack damage to another target, but atm on full resil players it is only doing ~20%. So a main attack that hits for ~20k is suppose to hit another target for ~10k with the bonus attack but on a full resil player this bonus attack will only hit for ~4k.

Just wanted to make this known(to hope that it gets fixed sooner than rather later).

It used to be a well used ability...I don't think I've ever used it in PVP this expansion.  They should fix it.  I'll tweet our Lord savior Holinka.

Before Cataclysm Sweeping Strikes used to ignore resilience doing 50% of your damage so it would do pretty decent damage and was worth using but sometime during season 9 or 10 they made it so resilience would also lower Sweeping Strikes damage causing it to be like 10 or 20% of your damage depending on resilience I guess? so yeah that's why it's garbage and not worth using. +rep if helped!

During Cataclysm, and even before that, SS would do 100% of your damaging attack to someone else. And it was always lowered by resilience in the fact that your main attack was reduced by resilience. However, as I recall, it never double dipped during Cataclysm. The only thing that did lower SS damage was different armor values on targets, if I recall correctly.

I can't imagine that this is intended. And if it didn't double dip, it would have it's place in arenas. Maybe not super useful but it would have use. And I for one would like it to be a button I could press.

Sweeping strikes also used to be free with glyph instead of 30 rage like now, so even if it did not douple tip from resil you wouldn't have rage for it most of the time. WTB the old one back with 10 sec duration and free of rage cost with a 30 sec cd.

I wouldn't even mind if it was a long cooldown like 90 seconds or something and made it 10 rage...the way it is now is just useless in PVP.  I guess it works well in PVE so they aren't going to change it :(

It doesn't really work in pve either, because of the 30 ragecost...
