I've been thinking about Pain and Suffering and how haste affects it.
Sometimes, I Mind Flay twice in a row. With haste, my Mind Flays are on a 2.71 seconds cast.
Shadow Word: Pain ticks every 3rd second, so when I mind Flay twice with this amount of haste, I should be renewing SW:P before it has time to tick.
How much does this affect my dps, losing a tick on SW:P like this?
Anyone who have done the mats on this?
I've been thinking about only spending one point in Pain and Suffering instead, but even then there's a chance you'll refresh your SW:P and lose a tick if you Mind Flay twice in a row...
And if anything, haste allows you to get to first Mind Flay tick, to refresh SW:P *faster*, which is good in fights that involves movement (Malygos, Sartharion, Hodir, Iron Council), or multi dotting several targets allowing you to refresh faster (Sartharion, Malygos P2, Freya)
I decided to stack enough haste so I got my Mind Flay down to under 2.75 seconds. That way, I can squeeze in 2 Mind Flays just before the MB cooldown ends. I'm not aiming on stacking more now, but I don't turn down an item with haste either.
