    Default Why is Conduit of Power a DPS loss?

    The guide I'm using for the 1-button elementalist cautions not to use CofP; that it is a DPS loss. But I'd be exchanging the following pet casts: 5500-6000 Air Damage (ST), 8400-9300 Air Damage (AoE) and +1600 to pet's and my attacks ... in exchange for 25% damage increase. If I easily do 70-80KDPS, that's 17,000-20,000DPS, right? How is that a loss? Not to mention that the pet is out of combat (I would guess) and then there's little chance of her dying.

    The damage from and interaction with your pet (Electrify, procs, etc.) outweighs the gain from Conduit.


    Pets already have a low chance of dying, because they don't get hit by a lot of mechanics.

    It seems to be fine with 61 build but is a loss if you go further into stormcaller.
