    Question Testing some Necro/Lock Bugs!

    I've seen claims that some Necro/Lock skills were bugged and I wanted to test them, before deciding anything. I thought I'd share the results.


    1) Claim (by BaronT): Plague Bolt only gives one stack of deathly calling even when fully specced.

    TEST:

    Tested with Deadly Plague (5/5):
    Plague Bolt was actually giving 2 stacks of DC per cast, everytime.

    ------------

    2) Claim (by DeadlySight): During the last 6 seconds (the extended period), the damage/tick of talented Necrosis is the same as default.

    TEST:

    Death's Ally 0/0
    Flesh Rot 0/0
    Necrosis (Tooltip): 189 over 12s
    Actual Damage: 66 / 99 c (7 ticks) = 462 average dmg

    Death's Ally 5/5 (+5% Death dmg)
    Flesh Rot 0/0
    Necrosis (Tooltip): 198 over 12s
    Actual Damage: 70 / 104 c (7 ticks) = 490 average dmg

    Death's Ally 5/5 (+5% Death dmg)
    Flesh Rot 3/3 (+6s duration, +60% damage)
    Necrosis (Tooltip): 317 over 18s
    Actual Damage: 60 / 91 c (10 ticks) = 600 average dmg

    As you can see the damage was lower, but made over 3 more ticks. The end result was only 22.5% additional damage, not 60%. Go figure.

    However, due to the lack of any real alternatives (unless you're speccing Deadly Plague), you may still have to put those 3 points in Flesh Rot. But it's definitely bugged, unless I am missing something.

    ------------

    3) Claim (by DeadlySight): During the last 6 seconds (the extended period of talented Necrosis), the pet doesn't get a guaranteed crit (known bug forever).

    TEST:

    Zealot Pet lvl 50:

    Flesh Rot: 5/5
    Blood Spike (Tooltip): 72 - 75
    Actual damage: 158
    w/ Necrosis (100% crit chance)
    Within First 12s = 237
    Within Extra 6s = 158 (90% of the time NO crit), 237 (only 10% of the time).

    Sadly this is still bugged.

    ------------

    I hope Trion gets to fix these bugs soon .

    Necro pets deal significantly less damage to invasion bosses.

    plague bolt has been fixed and rebroken the last few hotfixes. Currently it seems to be applying two stacks of deathly calling.
