By 'increases tick rate' I read that as meaning that if Corruption ticks every three seconds over 18 seconds normally (which, barring haste, it does) while channeling Malefic Grasp it will tick every second and a half over 18 seconds.It's kinda brilliant; you still need to keep all your dots up for it to do its job, which is cool for affliction. It does mean that you'll probably be a little less mobile, or at least moving will be a bigger DPS loss, since if Shadow Bolt spam matched your dot damage you might never bother with the dots outside of movement phases. Finally, a filler that matches affliction.Speaking of Malefic Grasp and mobility... how does that interact with the DPS-while moving talent?You can expect a focus on moving towards Bane of Agony instead of Doom; between the tweaks to keep from losing DoT ticks if you overwrite within the last six seconds and the idea of having to channel Malefic Grasp at either the right time or long enough to get extra Doom ticks.
