    Thoughts: Add Rune Tap to Crimson Scourge?

    Rune Tap currently has the same rune cost as Blood Boil, and Crimson Scourge currently gives a free BB or DnD/Defile. What do you guys think of CS making RT free if you have a charge available? I know it would be nice if you had that extra chance to use a CD if your runes were on cooldown.

    It would give that proc a little more dynamic than just an extra bit of damage, plus if I recall correctly, RT is off the GCD and you'd be able to use the proc without it interfering with your rotation.

    That would be a nice quality of life change.

    I mean, the chances of you needing to use RT while not having a Blood Rune up AND having this ability proc should be extremely rare, so I don't see it being all that helpful for 99% of the situations, however, like the above poster said, it would be a slight quality of life improvement.

    I suggest fixing other abilities before implementing this one *coughcontrolundeadstilluselesscough*

    Giving a free proc damage reduction CD to a tank is not a good idea at all, every time it proc we would use RT isntead cause you want to get full damage in teh face when we can have a free CD to use, right?

    Sorry if I wasn't clear. The RT would still have the 2 charges/30 sec limitation.

    I can't see this really being a worthwhile change for anything but fights where for some reason you aren't able to predict damage and pool runes accordingly. If it doesn't follow the charge/cd system then it risks bring too strong if we get some nice RNG. As much as I think it would be a nice change it would probably not be worth much in the long run apart from teaching new/bad DKs to actually use the ability.
