Should add Torrent of agony to SKs AC Debuff and group recourse does not stack with warrior field defender
Reduce AC by 80
group recourse increase group AC by 80

Note: duration for me is about 10 min

Aye, the Torrent line is dated in the OP, but it is listed at least.  It'll be updated when I update the debuff post.

Removed Shadowknight Surreptitious Blight (http://raidloot.com/Spells.aspx?name=Surreptitious+Blight) due to conflict with Shaman Pathosis (AA).

Added Shaman Pathosis (AA) (http://raidloot.com/Spells.aspx?name=pathosis), which lowers DISEASE resist by 114 (superior to blight as well).

Thanks Brenlaven for catching this conflict.

New SK debuff:

T'vyl's Resolve (http://raidloot.com/Spells.aspx?name=41134)
Classes: SHD/254
Target: Single
Resist: Unresistable
1: 2H Slash Attack for 381 with 10000% Accuracy Mod
2: 2H Slash Attack for 381 with 10000% Accuracy Mod
3: 2H Slash Attack for 381 with 10000% Accuracy Mod
4: Cast: T'vyl's Resolve Effect (75% Chance)
Text: You are struck by a flurry of blades.

T'vyl's Resolve Effect (http://raidloot.com/Spells.aspx?name=41134)
Duration: 12s (2 ticks), Dispelable: Yes
8: Increase Hit Damage Taken by 50%

This is amazing. "Stacks" but is not cumulative with the bard disc Funeral Dirge:

Funeral Dirge (http://raidloot.com/Spells.aspx?name=38097)
Target: Single
Resist: Magic -150
Duration: 42s (7 ticks), Dispelable: Yes
2: Cast: Shrieking Death if Not Cured
5: Increase Hit Damage Taken by 21%
Text: You are overwhelmed by the sadness of a Funeral Dirge.

My suggestion would be to have SKs rotate T'vyl's Resolve on burn fights, followed by the bard Funeral Dirge rotation. Although T'vyl's is only 75% proc rate, I have yet to see it fail to proc (knock on wood).

Left this linger, because at the time the SK T'Vyl's Resolve had stacking conflicts with a Monk debuff (name of which escapes me atm).  I think the stacking has been fixed, but the debuff has been changed:

41134   T'Vyl's Resolve
Hate: 1
1: 2H Slash Attack for 381 with 10000% Accuracy Mod
2: 2H Slash Attack for 381 with 10000% Accuracy Mod
3: 2H Slash Attack for 381 with 10000% Accuracy Mod
4: Cast: T'Vyl's Resolve Effect

41135   T'Vyl's Resolve Effect
0      0s   0s   2+   Unresistable   Single   
 6: Increase Hit Damage Taken by 15%

Looks like the damage mod was reduced from 50% to 15%.  The 75% chance to proc was removed.  Still useful, albeit short duration, and of course Dirge takes precedence.

Added SK debuff to the OP related section.

Re: Dirge

This is something we've been using a while as you know.   I added it to the debuff OP for completeness.  Thanks.

[41274] T'Vyl's Resolve Effect
Target: Single
Range: 50'
Resist: Unresistable
Reflectable: No
Casting: 0s
Duration: 12s (2 ticks), Dispelable: Yes
6: Increase Hit Damage Taken by 30%

Rank 1 of the AA is 15% - rank 2 is 30%. So it should ideally go before Funeral Dirge.

I was looking just at the spell data, I didn't realize SK had ranks for it.  Edited the debuff OP entry to reflect this.  Thanks!

I might be just not seeing it here, but for enchanters, in a lot of guilds and raid teams, Mental Contortion AA debuff is considered one of the most important debuffs to have on boss at any time.  When I ask in raid for Mental contortion to be cast, it seems like it is treated as not very critical or just a secondary thing to be done as able.  So, two most common things I hear, our tanks lack gear, our healers aren't healing enough.  I never hear, hey everyone else makes sure to have mental contortion always up on their boss and we don't.  I see this when I play my bard also, a hypothetical order is set for funeral dirge and bladewhirl, and then exactly 0 ppl follow it, for whatever reason, and the people following them give up on the order and everyone just starts casting stuff whenever. 

Mental Contortion
1: Decrease All Skills Damage Modifier by 25%
4: Decrease Hitpoints by 3855 per tick
6: Decrease Chance to Hit by 25% with All Skills

Before anyone says I don't realize how strained enchanters are: It is a single button press of an aa ability, either you have it up or you don't.  I hear during raid, about Nascar, about what type of pizza ppl are ordering, about what type of beer ppl are drinking, about what loot they'd like to win at event, but nobody has the time to maintain a debuff order, they are just too busy.  Tank channels and healing channels have to spend a ton of time co-ordinating their efforts in order to have any chance of success and debuffs are equaly as important.  Additionaly, I'm not sure the right forum for it, but our dps gets absolutely crippled by improperly timed and stacked adps buffs and clicks, and again I understand it takes some communication and effort to co-ordinate that with in a group, but it is really important.  The number one response I get when I ask people about it is, this is just open raiding, you can't expect people to care.  A lot of people care, don't assume otherwise, the goal isn't to see how much loot you can get with how little effort. Be a team player.

join the cc channel. MC is discussed.
make a trigger to see when its cast and by who.
find out from an enchanter with max hastened aa's what the cooldown is on it. for a 3 min duration and something like a 15 minute reuse, and with what usually is 1-3 enchanters on the raid - there is still downtime.
oh. and it can and does get resisted.~

Post by: mistatk on February 21, 2015, 02:36:08 PM
Thanks.  I don't need to ask an enchanter as I have a level 105 max AA enchanter.  So help me with the math, often times on a single boss, with 4 ench in the raid, I see MC debuff on 0 times.  And when I ask about it I get about the same answer as what you just posted, its too hard, they are too busy buffing, they forgot etc.  Anyhow, if at FL they feel it isn't important so be it.  I've also been told, its not a listed debuff so we don't HAVE to cast it.  What type of an answer is that?  Everyone else uses it with great effectiveness to win raids.  If FL doesn't want to  use it, that's up to them.

Post by: Gimamam on February 21, 2015, 06:15:46 PM
i wonder if you actually read what i posted - there was nothing in there about too busy. there was nothing in there about forgot.

i told you to join the cc channel. where last nights nomia had a good example of the chanters rotating through, as they do many nights.  i wonder if you took the time to notice the debuff was up.

at one point. 2 out of 3 had a resist. i guess they were too busy buffing to instantly recast the 9 minute cooldown.

but hey, i wanted to be informed and i took steps to make it happen. the exact steps i listed in my first post. join the channel, make a trigger..

... but you must have been too busy.
Title: Re: Debuff Breakdown - Spells & AA
Post by: mistatk on February 21, 2015, 08:11:45 PM
Since I frequently have joined the CC channel while raiding on my bard, I'm aware how the debuff line ups are handled.  Since I have the boss targeted 99% of the time in raid, I know what debuffs are on it.  Ignore my previous posts, everyone in every raid is doing 100% of everything they possibly could be, and there is no room for improvement.  Funny though that on my bard I see that dirge is often casted out of order, or by the wrong person, or not at all.

Thanks for the update Kianara!

I've updated the Debuffs post accordingly.



I went through all of the other classes and updated the information as well.  Some spell lines are now AA, and of course various spell names have changed over the years.

If anyone sees one or more critical Spell/AA missing from the Debuff post, please reply to let us know. :)

Thanks!
