SotC sucks for damage; it’s only good for magic immune/resistant targets, and viscidus shattering with a flurry axe.
Reason being is because of the retarded -40% damage modifier when under it.
Even without that, retadins get fairly solid in naxx. They should be around or above the DPS hunters can do(would’ve definitely been above had it not been for the recent AP changes.)
Holy waters shouldn’t be overlooked, either. They scale 100% with spellpower and are effected by sanc aura, so with an average retadin having 200 SP with consumes(about 350 with a flask), on top of imp jotc+libram of fervor for a total of an additional 192 spellpower, holy water becomes becomes a holy nuke.
The best part is that it’s not just the retadin that benefits from it; everyone who brings holy waters does, which can add up to a fairly decent amount of raid damage.
The only downside is that the frequent use of exorcism means there’s gonna be a lot more chugging of mana pots and runes.
If CA doesn’t scale, it’ll still be the 2nd best 2hander a retadin can get from naxx. If it does, or if it has a high proc rate, it’ll be the best. The other option is might of menethil. Either weapon is extremely powerful, but MoM’s damage can’t compete with the cool factor of CA, imo. That neat little RP event alone makes it worth it - a final “cherry on top” to the journey.
