    So the Chorus nerf actually hits the single target the most, so my idea that single target would go up significantly with the changes is wrong. Sad.

    Single target went up for me, but it still felt underwhelming. Even an 8% buff, or whatever it was for me, doesn't seem like enough. Rogues/warriors/mages/hunters/etc are still going to do much higher single target damage with half as much effort. Like, the buff is nice and all, but I don't feel like anything really changes.

    No council fight in Uldir :shifty:.

    8% would mean:

    I would win in +18 FH:

    Be less embarrassing in +17 KR and +18 AD:

    And have gotten that +18 Siege and +18 ToS in time:

    I actually don't know why +18 Underrot damage is so low, except for the first boss:

    I only compete with rogue in FH because he can't restealth because we pull all the trash with the second boss helping you kill it afterwards, and I only beat the DH on ToS because I do so much damage on the last boss.

    The void form is noticeably longer, but that seems like a bad thing. I'd rather it were shorter and we got more eruptions. Then you'd feel like you were doing something, because building up for the next eruption feels and plays like it's important.

    These numbers make me feel bad because they're using key time instead of combat time. No I am not a moonkin so I didn't do 12.6k dps in KR. Combat time is like 70-80% of key time so dps is 25%-40% higher than these show.

    But that would require more work for them to balance the damage than just changing the insanity gain on a few spells and changing Void Form damage multiplier, so we know they'd never do it.

    Just go all in on the shorter void forms compared to Legion, it's already shorter but it could be even shorter!

    Also Void Eruption looks really cool so I want to use it more.

    We pull the 5 mobs on the stairs leading down with the buff so there are like 12 mobs running around to DoT with super haste.

    I guess this is where the case could be made for Dark Ascension. I can't get used to it, though. It's nice having the extra void eruption, but after every other one you get stuck having to build up 90+ insanity to cast it again, and it just feels too sluggish to me. I like that Legacy of the Void just has a much more consistent feel, even if the damage isn't quite as good.

    It seems really antithetical to the Chorus trait or Lingering Insanity, at least in M+. Like you'd want to double erupt but you can't because you need to let form drop for the buffs before you do. So you'd be holding a 1 min cooldown a lot instead of just using it on CD.

    And if you don't happen to be fighting a pack when form drops you lose the buff for the DA erupt.

    At least I get an extra buff for using a meme spec that other spriests won't get, with the extra LotV Void Form multiplier.

    To get a decent Zek log I would need to use DA, since the adds spawn at 1 min and 3 min, so it lines up. You drop form and double erupt with full buffs if possible.

    I just go full single target because I want to actually kill the boss though.

    Do you use mindbender in or out of voidform? I'm curious. Everything I've read, especially guides for Dark Ascension, say to use it at around 5 stacks of voidform. I've been using it outside of voidform, though, as a way to build insanity faster. It seemed especially necessary for Dark Ascension, but I guess that's not how you're supposed to do it. >.>

    I just use it on CD (including when the last KR mob is at 8% right before a boss fight :shifty: ), it didn't feel that different when trying to delay it into Void Form. Could try tonight if we actually run Zek. I thought the Warcraftpriests guide said to use it on CD as well.

    I just like it outside of voidform because I can cast that, refresh dots, cast sw: void twice, then I'm back into voidform without having to mess with mind flay.
