I both love and hate that the arrows do "die" -- love getting shards, of course, but hate when I turn my attention to an arrow only for someone to use a cc breaker to get out of one and I don't get my shards ... typically after I've SB:SS'd my dots onto it, haha.

Tricks of the Trade: dots get buffed for the whole duration
Seems that all damage done modifiers are snapshotted (both buffs and debuffs), not dynamic. Garalon is special case.
Hasn't it something to do with the nature of the (de)buff? It's a beneficial debuff on Elegon, but a buff on Garalon.
They are both debuffs.
Thanks for the info very useful
as all your buffs are falling off in the opener is it better to SB SS again if you have the shards or manual recast to take advantage of pandemic as I seem to do more when I manual recast especially agony which can be up for almost until my next proc if I recast but will not if i SB SS.
The usual philosophy is buffs on you are snapshotted, debuffs on the target are not, but it's kind of unusual/counter-intuitive to have debuffs on you grant +% dmg. If anyone could test Sha of Fear, this one's a buff and my guess is it should snapshot.
For H Sha once we've gotten lei's hope should I reforge out of any haste I've got and into mastery? Also is it worth using Mannoroth's fury over Kil'jaeden's Cunning?
Figureditout of Dath'remar
My toon for reference.
Can't post links yet. : /
You don't get to keep the haste buff for P2 of Sha HC. A mastery build might still be better but don't drop the extra corruption tick.

How does MG work mechanically speaking? To which spell(s) is attributed the damage "procced" by MG ticking on a fully-DoTed target?
Agony, Corruption and Unstable Affliction.
Thanks. So I guess only the uptime tells of how great/bad I'm doing on a single-target fight (in a min/max situation).
Comparing the damage portion from your MG bonus dot ticks should be better than just the uptime of MG.
Any way to pinpoint it on WoL? What differentiates the bonus from the regular ticks? Is this the various "hits" of my DoTs that are treated separately from their ticks?
Take the dot that has same(/similar) amount of ticks as MG+DS combined.
Okay, got it. Thanks for that. Is there any ballpark figure I should aim for? It accounted for 25.5% of my damage last night on our first down of the Sha of Fear for instance.
