Thread: Amp Curse

    Amp Curse

    Should be renamed to Demonic Amplification and it should reduce GCD of all instant casts by 1sec.

    The way I see it; reducing GCD of all curses is meaningless when you apply those curses every minute or two. Maybe in a setting where you're applying CoA to multiple mobs but even then your overall damage is probably reduced.

    Just trying to see why this is a tier3 talent and doesn't provide nearly the kind of ability the other talents provide.

    they just made it that much easier of a decision for me not to take this talent... what a stupid nerf, appearently blizzard wants affliction to never cast any curse except CoE

    I don't think it's that bad tbh. Shaving off the time to reapply your DoTs to get back to spamming SBs sounds like it'll make rotations a lot more efficient. Add some Haste and you'll be pretty close to zero.

    shaving time to reapply your 1 curse

    its not DoTs

    and if you are heavy affliction and are required to cast CoE its a useless talent for .5 sec off GCD every 2 mins

    It basically makes amp curse a pvp only talent. Good, I'm not taking it anyway.

    Is the cooldown still there? Couldn't find it on wowhead ( http://wotlk.wowhead.com/?spell=18288 ) So that's why im curious

    Still think of it as a nerf, since you can only keep one curse on the same target. (Old effect was way better tbh)

    I believe it's passive my friend. Although I would be able to find out if the damn PTR didnt crash every 5 mins when I get halfway through respeccing my talent tree, and then reset once it goes back up. As soon as the server goes back up, any minute now, I will be making my 5th attempt at speccing through the tree. lol.
