    Default Greater Essence Dilema

    So I know this is only temporary while leveling but I just can't understand this.



    Ominous Shadesource
    Equip: Physical damaging abilities have a chance to deal 55 Death damage and restore 89 health.
    vs
    Smoldering Shard
    Equip: Physical attack abilities have a chance of dealing an additional 36 Fire damage.

    To me, it seems like the ShadeSource blows it out of the water. But I would think a level 20 epic would still beat out a 22 rare.

    I am a 28 Assassin.

    Shadesource does more damage + heals you. Real issue is the proc rate, but you may as well assume the same proc %, so blue > purple in this case.

    Generally, greater DPS essences suck balls and aren't worth using over a lesser essence that permanently boosts your stats. This includes the 2 you're looking at.
