SPs are losing Unholy Nova’s Unholy Transfusion DOT/HOT.
Also means SPs are losing
- Kevin’s Oozling- 6% Damage Debuff AND
- Rattling Mage’s Unholy Bolt casts.
I think is a considerable % of damage loss, in addition to Living Shadow’s Dominate Mind damage.
I understand SPs are “getting-those-things-back” through our 4 capstones. Net loss 0… sort of.
- Idol of Y’shaarj - You and your MBender deal 5% additional damage. Every 1min, like the Kevin’s Debuff.
- Idol of Yogg-Saron - After 25 Shadowy Apparitions (from 25 SA generating spells), you summon a Thing from Beyond that serves you for 20secs. Kinda like the Rattling Mage
The 4 Idols had an On Cast in addition to the current passives.
Idol of Y’Shaarj
Replaces Mindbender - Summons Y’Shaarj for 15 secs. 1min cd. Follows current Mindbender rules with Inescapable Torment (SFP)
Idol of C’Thun
Summons C’Thun next to you with 4 Void Tendrils and 4 Void Lashers for 15 secs. 1min cd. (I think this would look pretty cool)
Idol of Yogg-Saron
Summons Yogg-Saron for 20 secs. 1min cd.
Idol of N’Zoth
Summons N’Zoth at cursor location, for 15 secs, immediately applying 5 stacks of Echoing Void collapses any current Echoing Voids in a 15 yard radius. 1min cd.
I understand there’s a segment of SPs that are anti-Old God or anti-pet or rotation bloat, but I’m ok with a 1-to-1 replacement for Unholy Nova.
Yes, you can talent into Mindbender and take C’Thun + Yogg-Saron, which would mean +1 button, but I’d like to think an On Cast C’Thun or N’Zoth button would be more situational like a Shadow Crash. Maybe Dark Ascension has some ties with Y’Shaarj and Yogg-Saron since they do non-period Shadow damage.
