T15 2pc

Postby Rokh » Thu Mar 21, 2013 3:25 pm

Can someone math me on the 2pc?

I dont like it so far, and it doesnt proc from divine purpose heals.

Do we SoTR or Shield of Glory with our HP now? And does the 2pc make eternal flame any better?

I didnt really know where to ask this btw, so move it around if you want.

Theck has done some very detailed analysis here and here
It looks like we should basically use WoG how we do at the moment, as an emergency heal when we're low and guaranteed for it to have a very small amount of over heal.

I find the T15 2pc very strong situationally in practice.

For example, if you're single-tanking Tortos, if you sit on enough HoPo to pre-WoG right before picking up bats while still covering all the boss specials (which is very practical for a Control/Haste player), the 40% extra block percentage is amazing.

Situationally good, otherwise merely a consolation prize for having to hit WoG and lose 3 seconds of 50% mitigation.

I take it just because there are 2 tier pieces with good itemization (Head/Shoulders) and those slots don't have anything spectacular off-tier.

I really just look at it in the sense of: not taking physical damage now? wog is probably a better option and when I start taking physical again I have that mitigation up. Things like Magaera where the breaths hit hard so you can wog during it and get the block after breath is done. It's supposed to augment wog not make wog something you want to cast more frequently.

I love the 2 set bonus because, if I have to WoG at least I don't drop my pants :)

I think the 2 set bonus is great.
Usefull? not always.
But it changes our abilities a little bit.
IF we want a lot of block, we can have it, and block for 15sec compared to 50% dmg reduce for 3sec, its actually somewhat competitive.
When you are not taking much damage however, you can either WoG someone else (to not lose bastion stacks) or just have Harsh words and "dps" the boss and you will still get the buff up.
Problem is that its obviously not 100% (like warriors) so its not predictable.

Mainly i like it cause if you have to WoG yourself to survive, even if that hit is low, the 2set will increase chances of a block, meaning you are likely to survive (altho WoG should heal you for 1mill hp if you ever take that much damage :P)

Yeah, hitting WoG with 5 Bastion stacks is like hitting Lay on Hands.
