    Ascendance idea Enh

    As ascendance is now SB isnt really all that great, i think they should lower its damage a little but cut the CD in half. We need more damage

    What? What does SB mean? Are you referring to Stormblast - why - what does that have to do with anything? Ascendance is great where it is - they don't need to change it, it offers a tremendous amount of burst on a nice 3min CD for enhance, what would be the point in lower the CD and reducing the damage - in theory that would be the same damage, not an increase, and I'm much rather have a strong CD to time properly with encounters than have a weak CD that I can spam more often. Being able to feel like you're trucking things when in Ascendance form is awesome. Also, we don't *need* more damage, after 5.3 hits with the ~10% buff to enhance we'll be more than fine.

    Thanks to Axalicious for the great signature!

    its also changing all your mele attacks in nature dmg, modified by mastery, and make them speciall attacks so they cant be glanced and have 100% hit chance (asumed you are caped) so yea its realy decent atm

    That's its biggest problem PvP-wise. It can be countered by virtually every defensive CD in the game. And, sort of echoing what the OP said, having the burst revolve around two hits 8 seconds apart is not good for PvP (in fact, this issue extends to normal Stormstrike and Lava Lash and is, in my opinion, perhaps the biggest PvP issue enhance has. If one or both of those (SS/LL) are negated by a full absorb, parry, dodge, etc., your damage is effectively nil for 20 seconds). If even one of the two Stormblasts is dodged/parried due to RNG, that cuts the effectiveness of the CD to almost zero. Also I don't like how the offhand hit only lands if the mainhand hit lands too; i.e. if the main hand hit gets parried, the offhand hit just doesn't exist.

    Ah its a pvp thing. Figures. Here I was thinking "but there is absoltely nothing wrong with ascendance", but its just that I neve pvp.

    Wonder if we´ll ever get to a point where enhancement pvp isn´t so... dunno... difficult to get rolling I guess. Resto is so wonderful in PvP though. The few BGs Ive done this xp as resto my experience was a joy really. Enhancement, I just blow up all the time.

    if OP is arguing that it dmg bonus should be decresed along with it cd halfed im asuming that we are talking about Pve cose making it any weaker will not help at all in pvp
    so yea from pvp perspective you are right it have to be used with much awarnes and usually target switching after first SB
    pvp wise i would increse it cd to 5 mins and change it to be unavoidable :P my fights on arena usually take ~40 sec anyway
