Is avenging wrath okay to use while tanking?

Postby Iboughtpower » Wed Dec 30, 2009 11:56 pm

Should I just leave this alone or use it while tanking? Are there any negative effects while using this?

As long as you don't need bubble or Shield wall within 30 seconds of you using it, use it every cooldown. It's an amazing threat boost.

Does the 20% increase also buff the SoV tick and the consecration damage?

Not 100% sure on the exact modifier of the SoV boost but consecrate yes.

It's20% more damage to everything. If you spit on someone with avenging wrath, your spit will be 20% more offensive.

Only 20% more damage, not necessarily more offensive.
If it is weak, kill it before it gets stronger. If it is strong, weaken it.

If you're spitting with holy water for holy damage it's more offensive.

I pretty much use it at the beginning of every fight, right after tricks of the trade wears off

Why after? Surely it's more effective to use while TotT is still active, stacking with its 15% damage increase as well.

Use it after you get 5 stacks of SoV.

Because they don't stack.

I hardly ever use it ,I tend to use divine protection. Mainly for the 2 min cooldown and more importantly the 50% reduced damage for 12 seconds. I like to keep my options open without having to bubble and possibly lose aggro. Now if i am O/T`ing i will use Av but as a MtI use divine protection.

Seeing how both have share the cooldown and the Av is a 3 min cd.

By using it at the beginning when you're least likely to need bubble, you're still saving that cooldown.

It also helps ramp up that initial threat so people can open up more quickly.

Though on fights like Icehowl I will save it until he hits the wall to advantage of heroism and the damage increase.
