I just had an "Aha" moment here:If the soulburn effect on SoC spreads corruption to everything in range, and corruption still has the siphon life effect, doesn't that have potentially huge implications? Imagine a SoC going off in the middle of a huge battleground scrum; maybe a dozen or more targets; every one of them now has a 50% chance to give you back 1% of your life per tick?My god, we'll be unstoppable./e rubs hands while cackling maniacally.

+ Factor in nightfall into this.

Do you realize that the nerf was done to reduce the healing you got in such situations?If you SoC 12 players, you get (50% chance) of 1% of your health per tick.Since at 85 you'll have ~100k health, that's 6k health every ~3 secs. How much damage do you expect to get in those 3 seconds? Less than 6k?The old version gave % of Corruption damage (can't remember exactly, let's say 50%). 12 people with Corruption up, ticking for 3k would have given you 18k, THREE times as much.Casting DL instead will give in the same 3 seconds 15% of your health, that's 15k.

@pancakesI thought about that too, and while I don't think it would be necessary (since huge AoE mobs are not going to be the norm in Cata), I wonder if an internal cooldown on Nightfall will be introduced.
