    Essence of Terror proc info

    Hey forum

    So from what I've read on wowhead Essence of Terror has a 20 second proc duration on a 105 second cooldown, with a 15% chance to proc on harmful spell hits

    What does the last bit mean? Only Haunt? Or everytime we refresh dots? Or every time we deal damage with a tick? .. Do any of you know, for a fact, how it procs?

    I don't main a warlock, but I'm pretty sure DoT damage (each time it deals damage) counts as a spell HIT and has a chance to proc things that fall under that umbrella.
    Error 404: Signature not found.

    On anything. Haunt, MG, DoT ticks, Fel Flame...etc...Sometimes the lower proc chance can be really lame and not proc until 20s into the fight though. So take it for what it's worth.

    Can't be worse than Light of the Cosmos (15% chance on tick damage) as a Destrolock. 15% chance on one DoT that ticks every 3 sec can take some time

    The Chaos Bolt change makes proccing this extremely easy.

    Essence of Terror does not seem to proc on DoT ticks. Just tested. It will proc on the start of channels, when the DoT spell is first cast, DD spells. But never once did I get it to proc on a Drain Soul tick or an Agony tick, or a Rain of Fire tick.

    well it does say every time a spell hit it has a chance to proc, and a spell can only hit once but can deal its dmg several times like a dot, so it wont proc on ticks, and it shouldnt proc on the chaos bolt ticks either, or atleast thats what my logic says.

    For destro it's bad. Afflic, it's up alot.

    And spell hits are not dot ticks. Spell hits are casts.
    Perfect example of why "community" forums are poisonous to the health of a development team. These developers are wasting hundreds of hours trying to stem the tide of incessant bitchery that would never, ever abate so long as these entitled, unfortunate human beings don't get their way.

    The procrate is just as bad is what I was saying. I love when it procs, but not when it doesn't proc until DS+DMC trinket procs are already done.

    I've just said that according to my extracd addon. However i misunderstood the icd, i think. 20 secs uptime, 85 secs cd, not even 90. So my bad, wasnt trolling anyone.

    on that trinket, it isnt really the proc that is important, its actually the least important thing, its the 1k+ int on that makes it a good trink.

    aye 8000 haste is best ignored. wot? The proc does strike me as seriously unreliable, which I hate with a passion. Reminds me of that horrible Theralion's Mirror (name?).

    This never happens to me so I don't really understand the problem. If you know something is about to come off the ICD then you should keep channeling MG to make sure you proc as much as possible at the same time so you can refresh your dots with more procs. This is really basic but I don't get why someone playing Affliction would complain about proc rate. The only class I've heard complain about LotC before is mages.

    I've never complained about it and you saying that I'm not attempting to proc it with MG/anything is ridiculous. Clearly I'm spamming MG - it's a 15% chance to proc - there is a chance where it won't proc until DMC is over or DS is over. Grats to you if it's never happened to you, but I can guarantee you it's happened to me before.
