Shroudborne Orthanatos

Post by Hugues » Wed Jan 15, 2014 5:48 pm

Has anyone tried to sink points into Orthanatos? Basically wondering if the HoT gets decent heal amounts also if the cold damage spell does a decent amount of damage. Is the mana drain effective if you boost the orthanatos focus?

According to the wiki it's actually comparable to the NS personal HoT in terms of heals per second. I imagine that the numbers would be similar if you got orthanatos up to where a NS would get exorcism. Although the cast time is double and the duration is only 10 seconds, so that sucks.

my glass cannon shade mage assassin with the CC staff had that trained a fair bit IIRC... heal was quite nice, could out heal basically any scout. also kept my [fluffy bunnies] alive when I got a dot or something

Recently i did this just to check. I pumped something like 50 points in to it and it raised my heal something like 17 health per tick. This is just from memory but the numbers were fairly close to this.

It's not worth it imo. Not even the first 10 trains for double returns. Most shade mages will have other more important stuff to use trains on.

It is not worth 0utting points into I raised it to 115 (about 40 trains) and it was only 5 to 10 per heal better.

With the new changes coming, I was under the impression this would be able to get a higher % per point. I was wondering if it would be worth it then to, perhaps as a shade priest or irikei, gold the focus line and pick up a bit of offensive power with the discs' respective spells.
