I don't know how people are missing out on this. It does 25% of your pet's health as shadow damage, and it scales with +damage talents, Blood Presence, etc.

I was just casually testing it for the first time, and it does 6k hits and I'd assume 12k crits (I didn't have time to check for crits) for the cost of Death Coil. I can just imagine the combos I could set up with a Gnaw -> Corpse Explosion.

Here's a good macro for it too (thanks to Donkeykonng from Black Dragonflight [US] for helping with this):
#showtooltip Corpse Explosion
/target pet
/cast [nochanneling:Explode] Corpse Explosion
/targetlasttarget

If you think Unholy needs some better sustained burst, well, this is it. Best part? It's ranged since your pet isn't usually CCed.

I do not like where this thread is going lol.  Quick somebody delete it.

A couple of questions though, has it been a consistent 6k or was there maybe some modifiers going on, procs, stuff like that?

It does if you use it on your living pet. I think the mechanic is that it uses 25% of your pet's health. It's ridiculous.

That is without anything except Blood Plague (Rage of Rivendare), Ebon Plague, and Blood Presence. It's just 25% of your pet's health plus those modifiers.

I was thinking the pet had about 18-19k but I forgot to take into account blood pressence even though you said it in your post.

This is going to be nasty lol

One thing is that the crit rate seems to be pretty low. But 6k hits are nice no matter what.

Probably uses your spell crit, which is most likely low as hell.

it has a very, very, very small radius
a lot smaller than 10 yards, very hard to use, even after a gnaw
and you can't spam it, else it'll reset your ghoul's cast

other than that, yeah it's nice .p

ya i used it before they buffed it.  The radius is TINY, if you dont have a snare on the enemy they can still move out of the blast radius even after a gnaw.
