    Default Sac Life: Dmg and Empowered Darkness

    Sorry at work and can't test this out right now, so just gonna ask......

    Sac Life: Dmg is activated before dots are applied to get the benefit but,

    Empowered Darkness can be activated after they are applied?

    Also, I assume no, but do the 2 buffs stack?

    I've never specifically tested this since my Sac Life spell is in my macro, but I know that when Sac Life: Damage buff is on me, my Empowered Darkness ability is greyed out (i.e. - not usable).

    I am not sure if you use Empowered Darkness what would happen if you tried to use SL: D.

    Thanks, that helps. But, just to clarify the original question....

    Sac Life: Dmg MUST be activated before dots are applied to get benefit but....

    ED can be activated EITHER before or after dots are applied?

    As far as I'm aware, no. DoT damage is only altered retroactively by debuffs on the mobs, and otherwise the damage is calculated according to buffs up only when it is initially applied.

    Ok. I must have misinterpreted this from the 51lock guide thread:

    I took it to mean the ED was going to increase the dot dmg but I guess in fact it is to increase the VB - DS dmg

    Yes, this refers to the 2 2k hits the target would take at almost the same time from VB and DS.

    You can also radiate death to re-apply and ED-buff DT and grasp on a target: DT, Grasp, ED, Radiate...

    why would this be difficult to test? do you really trust forum people for a 1 minute test on something so critical to 51 lock?

    If you applay DotS first they are not effected by ED but i could see how you make that mistake. If you use void bolt it resets life leech thus life leech gaining the ED buff. Radiate death does the same thing to neddras grasp and dark touch.

    but if you throw your dots then hit ED and dont cast radiate death or void bolt your dots will not gain the benefit of ED.
