I agree with the need to make dual-targeting easier and to make Shadows Embrace a self buff. With the added CD coming to Glyph of Soul Swap all Blizz did was make it harder. Right now you can sqweak it in if you hit it on CD. With a 15 sec CD your looking at Corruption and (depending on haste level) UA falling off. Not right IMO.
while rolling dots on 2 targets, the perfect timing to do the swap is when corruption ends... if u do it sooner (like when UA ends), its a dps decrease. If u do it later (like when BoA ends) its a dps decrease again. So u need to Soul Swap 18 seconds after the first Swap. 15 sec cooldown on Soul Swap plus 2xGCD to reaply dots on secont target equals 18 seconds. U would then have to Soul Swap on cooldown .... witch makes it much much easyer to roll dots on 2 targets. U could stop thinking about dot duration alltogather... just Soul Swap on cooldown... perfect.
Apr 11th 2011 2:13PM ur shadowbolt comments are totally eronious...
actualy the affliction tree makes shadowbolt refresh corruption and also ads a stacking debuff to SB, so the affliction tree makes SB work very well for affliction. Also in the affliction tree, there is a tallent to make SB instant on a proc.... THAT'S 3 SHADOW BOLT TALLENTS IN AFFLICTION TREE....
Farther more, having a cast time tallent for SB in the destruction tree makes perfect sense for a pvp affliction spec where u would most defenetly use drain life as a filler and only cast SB when its instant
Sep 7th 2008 10:21PM i got no problem pushing more butons. Thats why I love affliction, it takes skill to play it. U need to watch 5 timers + agrometer + raidwarnings + all kinds of procs :)
At the moment though, it seames that every talent in the affliction tree is a must. I can only get away with spending 54 points in afflition (just for nooking, that meanes striped of ALL utility). 54 points in aff meanes I cant even get the destructive reach talent /sigh
But no matter, blizz is going in the right direction atm. Lets hope they dont stray off the yellow brick road
