Beastie Conjuration skill

For beasties having trouble with fizzled DoT spells (like Envenomed Breath), the answer should already be in your spell book. At level 17 you got Summon Drink and at level 29 you got Summon Food. (Come on you bought the spell, right?) Every time you log on to your beastie cast until you have a stack on 20 summoned water and 20 summoned food -- just watch your conjuration skill go up. If you have waited until level 35 to begin, you may want to spend a couple hours making bags full of summoned food. You can also practice cast you lower level DoT spells on your pet for skillups. (BTW, the pet will not be hurt by this process so no PETA flamers, please!!)

As a shaman i have found this spell to be simply incredible.

After leaving the paludal caverns at about level 25, i have noticed that mobs in sucessive zones, for example netherbian lair, mseru and dawnshroud peaks had a shockingly large amount of HP compared to our old friends, the bandits of the paludal caverns.

I was faced with long fights when soloing, my melee skills being well developed and yet the mobs just would not die fast enough. I was finding the fiends in the neth lair surviving long enough for slow to wear off, and well, basicaly experience would slow down.

Enter Envenomed Breath spell. With a cheap (on most servers) burning affliction II item (serpentine bracer), affliction efficiency and haste, this little number has dramaticaly increased the rate of kills at the level that we get this spell.

While in the neth lair, i would pull with slow, then while the mob was still running, this dot, and then just melee it to death. Thus the mobs would die a lot faster.

Another great thing about this spell is helping you with adds. When meleeing one mob, and one or two mobs would add, i'd keep all adds under the effect of this rather nice DOT. Then when my main target was dead, i'd go back to the add, and it would be already significantly wounded.

Its like having a melee friend with you :)

Anothe tip i'd like to pass on to fellow shamans is to use our dots as much as possible. Sure, you might be twinked to such extent that the damage of these spells at lower levels seems insignificant when compared to your uber twinking BUT remember the school of conjuration. Our higher level DOTs benefit from having high conjuration skill. Our pets benefit from knowing conjuration.

There is a point somewhere midway through your shaman career when dots become so powerful that no matter what weapon you have (bar maybe lodestar from the cragqueen...maybe), the dots will be always way more powerful dps than your melee.

So, to sum it all up, this spell is great to speed up kills at a time when mobs have more and more hp as well as helping you work up the conjuration skill for your later shamaning career :)

good luck and good hunting.

With the new find window it makes it even easier now all you have to do is <Ctrl F> select Dar Khura Ahmih then find. You will be given a mystical path to the vendor.

does the same shaman DoT spells stack? IE if I cast this 2 times on a mob will it cause twice as much damage over the 7 ticks? or is it a waste of mana to continue to cast this spell if the mob is already affected ?

No that doesnt stack.
Only spells of diffrend "schools" stack.
So the "desease" based and "poison" based whil stack. but 2 of " poison" wont
RE: Stacking spells
# Apr 28 2004 at 4:07 AM Rating: Decent
you can stack dot spells of the same "school" as long as they aren't the same level i.e you can stack envenomed breath, malaria, VoS, and sicken.

The same spell cast by different shamen will also stack. One shaman cannot cast the same spell on one mob multiple times and have it add, but pretty much any other combination will work. This is for poison and disease - not sure about curse & epic dots

I believe this spell is also sold on the Shaman DoT vendor in Everfrost, and possibly in Ferrot (not sure on that one). A lot easier to get to these locations than trying to get in Cabilis if you're not an Iksar.
