must be a good pl weapon

the problem when plvling with a bard is that if you take too high mob, the powerlvlee will do low damage... too low compared to their regen, so a proc that stop regen should allow bard to plvl other char with higher mob...
Procs at 15

My rogue was PLd by a bunch of bored guildies from 13 to 17 in about 90 minutes in Paludal. The moment she hit 15, the Bloody Dirk started proc'ing.
As for the taunt potential, it was doing 5 points of direct damage each time it proc'd and it proc'd ofen, but it didn't seem to make much difference for a six-pack of fungal fiends who were busy using a level 50 druid as a punching bag... ;-)
First Hand on this proc:

I've been playing SK's since RoK came out...

YES - This spell is a major taunt for SK's
BUT - This spell doesn't seem to taunt much for my necro
YES - This is a low level DoT that doesn't do much damage
BUT - This low level DoT, on low to mid-range NPC's, will basically stop their regeneration, thus actually making it useful to rogues

Now, with that being said, if you don't want it, sell it for some plat in EC or mid-level zone... I betcha there's rogues out there that would LOVE to have this DoT as a proc. Who knows, the proc may not taunt like it does for SK's, but rather more like Necros. I have NEVER had a mob leave my pet to come after me for using this spell like I have with my SK. JUST AN FYI AND IDEA.

disease cloud is one of the best shadowknight TAUNT spells =D. to see a 50+ rogue actually use this (alhtough at lvl 50 i hope to innoruuk that he has better) would give me the chuckles for months =)
Proc Level?

So, what is the Proc Level? Is it 50?

Well after looking up a site i saw that INDEED this proc is a fristt lvl necro spell.
Disease Cloud

This is not the first level necro spell...I is the level 20 necro area effect spell 20 dam up front and I think another 40 dot...Not bad but those AOE effects can get one into trouble pretty quick....

The proc is NOT an AOE it its a single target DOT that does 60 damage over 6 minutes. It is a MAJOR Taunt and not good for a rogue.
Umm... no it's not

Sorry to say man but this proc isn't that good. It's a level 1 necro/level 9 SK spell. only 6dmg up front and i believe 1dmg/6sec after. Given the level you need to earn it off this fragger...

Lets just say unless it procs low (say pre15), which would make it an awesome twink weapon, it wouldn't be worth it as more than cash, which you can get better and more off solo at the level you need to earn this.

What level does this proc kick in? Looks like a handy little proc. Also a price check would be nice.
