    I use this with my pvp sourcemachine (new on that adds +valor). I dunno its viability in PVE tho. Great for PVP tho.

    It's a DPS increase if you time your dot refreshes with the proc, one of the only useful greaters IMO

    I'm trying to figure out how to properly fill my Focus as well, been doing a lot of testing and napkin math on the Deathtouched Soulstone and the Adorned Shadeshard.

    It looks to me like they're a bit better than the lesser essences that are available for those spots. there's 4 lessers that have 30 or more SP, the rest ranged from 28 to 25. So you'd have to compare the greater to your 5th and 6th best Lessers, which should be 2 of 28.

    From my napkin math I got the values of both the greaters down to about 42 SP for Nec/Lock builds (38-28 and 35-31)

    I'm not reposting my math cuz most of it is deleted already and I don't feel confident enough to post it as fact, but I have a feeling the 2 greaters together with the heavy SP lessers is the way to go for Nec/Lock builds.
    it's no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society

    I'd be more inclined ot think the AS would benefit from a heavy AOE build cause wouldn't that up the proc rate? Also you'd be getting the stacks on 4-5 mobs instead of one
