    Default Lust for Blood - not working on non-shaman abilities?

    First off, this is my build. I'm level 45.
    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=00...c.euMoofckRR.V

    The only Shaman attacks I use are Fated Blow and Jolt. What I'm seeing is that when I proc Lust for Blood I never actually consume it, not with Justicar abilities or those two Shaman abilities. Do I still recieve the benefit from the buff? Does it not affect the abilities I'm using? Or maybe the buff is bugged and isn't ever consumed?
    If it's either of the former, I'm going to have to spec out of 3/3 Lust for Blood in favor of 3/5 Stormborn for my Jolt procs.

    I am trying out a druid/sham/inqui build for melee dps and have found that Lust for Blood is consumed by druid abilities. I am concluding that Lust for Blood not only doesn't affect all Justicar abilities, but it also doesn't affect Jolt or Fated Blow.

    Is this intended Trion? Jolt requires melee range but doesn't require a melee weapon, so I can understand if that is why it doesn't consume Lust for Blood. Fated Blow requires a melee weapon and is even physical damage, so I don't understand why this wouldn't consume Lust for Blood. However, both are Shaman abilities so it's silly to not have them be affected by it considering the talent is too general to specify what abilities are excluded.

    Any insight on the matter?

    only works with melee abilities

    crushing blow
    fated blow (theoretically should)
    lightning hammer
    massive blow
    avalanche strike
    strike of the maelstrom




    jolt is a spell - i.e. doesnt require a melee weapon and doesnt cause a melee strike/start the swing timer

    Pretty sure it's only physical damage. i.e. no justicar

    In that case, I petition they reword the tooltip to read:

    "Your Critical Hits with melee attack abilities cause you to deal an additional 10/20/30% damage with your next physical melee attack ability."

    If you're trying to build up 32/32 Just sham (or something of the sort), the wind damage boost is really your only choice. The other stuff doesn't stack well with your abilities.

    I'd advise towards testing and not assuming, you never know what you might find out...
