Clicky dps options (Especially for TLPs)

While this clicky lands on many resistant targets, the best it can offer is 1413 dmg in 99 seconds (15 ticks + cast time, *IF* the target lives 99 seconds), I think a better option for mana-free DPS would be the clicky on Sacred Shield of Dread: Drain Soul. This has several advantages: MUCH better range to begin casting (can do this on incoming, at max range, with very little chance of pulling aggro by the time it lands), it does all of its damage at once, meaning you get more damage from just one click if the target isn't certain to survive the 99 seconds needed for Curse of Spirits to run its course. Furthermore, you're healed for the amount of the nuke, if you're below max health, and it scales with your level! At level 60, it lands for 406.

Non Iksars stick with Jaundiced Bone Bracer, cliky nuke Winter's Roar with a cast time of 8 seconds. This gets resisted most often of the three, and for me (at level 60) always lands for 246 damage.

Bracer = 246/8=30.75 DPS sustained if you chain cast, assuming your target isn't especially resistant to cold.
Shield = 406/13.5=30.074 DPS sustained if you chain cast it.
Epic = 1413/99=Only 14.273 DPS, and ONLY IF the target survives the full time

More tellingly, after the 13.5 seconds have past, even rounding up to the next tick, the epic has only done 34 dmg vs the full lump DD of the shield. Given the ease with which most could complete Sacred Shield of Dread, I think it's worth considering if you're on TLP. After 13.5 seconds, the bracer has dealt probably 246 damage, and is half way to doubling with the second cast.

any focus effect that's the same as Burning Affliction will cause this DoT to have more dmg per tick

Focussed with BA5 and Extended Torment or Affliction of Dragorn, you should get 1 or 2 additional ticks + an average of 10% more damage per tick due to BA5. It comes out to an average of 1932 damage over 1.6 minutes, 121 average per tick. Not much damage per tick, but very mana efficient!

Yup, nice brag item but the range is too short to use while soloing in my opinion. I like to root and stand well back to give myself time to reroot, can't be done with this DOT.

Using the new thingy that shows DoT damage i worked out how much damage exactly. It did as follows :
so 1450 damage in 15 ticks AKA 1 minute 30 seconds for no mana. Now if only it was unresistable..

It also has a casting time of 9 if i remember correctly and has a crap range.

Heh, that's the Splurt damage scale, only two ticks shorter.

Can anyone tell me what this effect does?

This is a "spurt"-type DoT. That is, it starts off doing a small amount of damage pet tick, then that damage builds until the end of the spell's duration when it does a lot of damage per tick.

It is the click-effect of the Shaman Epic weapon, and it does a total of about 1200hp damage in 1.4 minutes. Since it starts off with low damage, it doesn't draw much aggro right away, and with luck the tanks will keep the MoB's attention thought the whole cycle, however I have had MoBs break away from fights after about 1.2 minutes and come after me, because this spell was doing so much damage per tick at the end. And of course as soon as the effect wore off, they'd forget about me and go back to the tanks.

When I have KEI and solo I usaly stack dots.
So I start of with a Decise based long time dot at about 85%, and then add Ban of Nife (Poison DoT for over 200 / tick) at about 70%.
and my lvl 55 Pet holds agro without a problem!
I can even sit down and med. As long as I did not sit down the first 5% of the mobs hp.

So it cant be a good tank, not holding Agro from this clicky?
