Nice thread, but do you spread dots even vs priest teams? Just curious as I havent tried it -- I wondered how it would function with pom bouncing to the last tick. I was just wondering if that healing was negligible in the grand scheme of the match.
Yes, why? Because DoT's make the priests shields adsorb dot damage, meaning that if you were to switch onto priest, the shield would be adsorbing less damage since most of the DoT damage was already adsorbed. So spreading dot's will work anyways, it will just slow you down a quite bit. In duels, the shields barely last anyways.
The damage between Mutilate, Dispatch and Envenom is crazy outside of having multi dots everywhere. In BG's I always get top damage because I'm at least having 5+ people dotted, so that's about 50+ energy almost every second allowing me to spam mutilate/dispatch/ST.
Regemmed to full mastery currently sitting on 84.73%, did a few 2s and been spamming BGs with it.
the damage output is insane, with multi rupturing you can keep a whole team pretty low without blowing any major cds, One thing I did notice is that when you garrote several targets from stealth it wont always trigger venomous wounds. VW only procs on targets that you have poisoned and when garroting several targets in subterfuge deadly poison does not always apply
Overall it feels like playing an unholy dk, lots of spread pressure from dots and a big burst cd every 2 mins. Its pretty good!
Question, how much damage are you doing on your bleeds/poisons? I normally see between 20k - 50k for Deadly Poison + the damage that comes in from rupture and garrote.
Also, the VW proc is really high with Garotte, so it's kinda weird that it didn't proc with you. Maybe bad RNG? But it always procs on my end. Either way, in 2's it's crazy fun and in threes, being able to switch targets fairly quickly with a redirect/rupture.
2s was sick with a healer. I feel like a real class playing rogue now. I can see how some teams will shut you down but it is nice to do sustained damage. I think the biggist plus to this is sub was SOOOO boring.
In 2's, a healer is always good, but I like to play with a SP, because of split dpsing. I will explain more of this in a bit when I update my guide a bit, but it's crazy fun with a SP or Boomy in 2's. If you play with a healer in 2's, the only team I have had problems with are with DK's, but my healer just tends to outplay DK's while I ram their healer
