    I would consider taking it over a few other options but once you get some of the better greaters it's really not all that impressive. The one nice thing to think about is that it can give extra opportunity to proc weapon enchants and other greater essences.

    better for melee builds than the AP increase AND the extra dmg dmg/heal one, leaving this a good one with the increased melee chance one which imo are the 2 best for dps.

    basically more white hits = more poison procs = better uptime for 5% crit and 5% dmg.

    How about it grants a chance to start autoattacking when the system bugs out and you're not autoattacking

    Parsed this little gem, it was abysmal -- replaced it 30 seconds later.

    It's not another white hit.

    The proc rate is so low, and ICD so high, that this greater is trash. All greaters, except for some raid rift greaters, are bad when looking at raid rift lessers. 34 crit and 15 attack? Yes please.

    that sux, they should really fix it then... oh well the two i have are good enough. the tiny heal helps and the crit one is good.

    Yeah I reached the same conclusion. Unfortunately I didn't get to do as many raid rifts pre1.1 as I wanted so now it's going to take a while to get enough inscribed stones.

    Compared to some of the other greaters (HOT on heal spell, the block ones, etc.) physical DPS gets the shaft.

    It has either changed since you tested it, or you didn't test it correctly.

    It has no ICD, or should i say, sub 1 second ICD.

    It still works out around 1% of your dps , Crystalized Vampire Blood being around 2%.

    I do agree the greater are pretty meh for physical dmg dealers.
