Three Basic Quick Questions

Postby Quacky » Wed Oct 08, 2008 3:25 am

Basic quick questions:

1. Does Ebon Plaguebringer effect holy spell damage? If so, according to the tooltips it would be the only spell damage taken debuff that does, is that true?

2. Someone said in the Beta Forums, RD is back on GCD. Is that this patch (10-07-08)? Are tuants currently on GCD for all tanks?

3. The tooltip for Blessing of Sancturay list 20 RP, 10 Rage, 2% total Mana. Do Paladin Mana bars fill up and get used about the same as the other tanks in a Raid?

I believe both Ebon Plaguebringer and Curse of Elements are % magic damage for all types now.

On 3), our mana bars allow for several cycles before going OOM, whereas other classes can use a full rage bar in much shorter time; the 2% mana vs 10 rage actually works out about equal.

Can't test RD, because my downloader won't connect to get the new patch.

Bugged RD is bugged


(altho, i'd accept RD being on GCD if they gave us a single target Taunt not on GCD, but that's just me)

Yep... an optimist in me is saying it's a sign of things to come... but why announce cd reduction to 8 sec, leave it at 10 and then put it back on gcd? >.<

That's a "incoming change".

None of the incoming change has been done for any class, that's probably the 9th time i say it today.

afaik Ebon Plaguebringer is a 13% dmg increase.
CoE is 10% and Malediction+CoE is 13%.

Anyone else think it's kinda shite that Ebon Plague and Curse of Elements seems to have an effect of Holy damage while Earth and Moon doesn't?

I agree but it's still an improvement over TBC where we had 0 holy spell dmg increase debuffs.

They are making them all the same so i'm guessing Earth and Moon will be all damage as well.

That said, i find quite hard for a raid to not have a warlock anyway so at least 10% is guaranteed anyway.

My guild seems to think bringing 4 Warlocks will be ideal. D:
