Rerolled disc cuz fotm but dam I do not see the appeal yet.
Healing rotation seems very easy. It’s the damaging part that is tricky.
My issue is that the second my teammate gets low I cannot top them at all. And so then I am stuck trying to catch up the whole game. Is this because I need to start the match way more aggressive to stay ahead?
Seems like you need to pump damage early to keep your teammate topped with atonement or you will fall behind.
As of now I feel like I am using all my penances to heal instead of dam. And no free globals to purge wicked enemy.
Any tips for new disc?
Playing mindbender build fyi and using it on CD along with mindblast into penance into death
The bender tree just doesn’t put out enough damage. Your strongest damaging abilities will be Penance and Purge the Wicked, so talent for those. Smite still sucks, so don’t waste your talent points unless its combined with Penance.
The tier set is (at best) ‘meh’ (I think its awful: buffing Smite which is already pathetically weak makes for a poor band-aid); you can talent for all the Smite-improving abilities + have the tier set bonus and still get crappy damage from it.
Sounds like you need to Smite less and PTW more; the latter does a boatload of damage (giving your Atonements more sustain), is instant (giving you mobility), and has some nice talent rows. Catharsis is pure evil too.
Since you said that you were ‘FOTM’-ing Disc, be patient; this isn’t the greatest iteration of the spec. Give it a couple of patches/expacs and Schism along with double Mind Blast (or something else like it) will make its return.
You can be aggressive in 3v3s or RSS with damage but you’re going to be using your penance a lot more to heal than do dam in this high damage mele meta. We’re in constant damage mode where it never ends, as opposed to setup meta where your atonement would handle the majority of the match until it came to burst windows.
I don’t go mindbender build in RSS or 3v3, only 2v2.
exactly this in 2s. i went away from bender build in 2s bc you have to be insane to make it work past 1600. so if you’re not hemmis just go a shield / big pennance build and get those purge the wicked out there. always my first global after shield / renew to get shield back faster
