    Default Leeching Poison: now worth using?

    Hey PTS heroes, how much does Leeching Poison heal for now?

    Glancing back to some sort of video I'd taken, it healed for 264 a hit and proc'd all the time. Granted that's with 5/5 Poison Mastery and some AP focus, as well as the RS healing increase, but I found it to be great for my solo build.

    Hmm that's not bad at all, add that to Fellblades and you've got a fair amount of self heal.

    For my solo grind Blade Dancer build I went 26 inf to get the Brew as well to heal about 500-600hp 1 minute cool down worked pretty good.

    Great for solo builds not sure about other builds

    Huh, really? There might be more than a fair bit of AP scaling going on. I checked the same video, and I had an Enduring Brew crit for 2253. You can take a look, is at the 1:30 mark. Edit - heh, apparently the random letters of the youtube URL spell out a naughty word so I can't post it here. Whatever: http://tinyurl.com/stillmoresolo

    I'm not gonna lie. I clicked the url just to see what word the youtube url spelled that was censored. I lol'd. Also, 2253 crit is pretty impressive.

    In bitnine's video it was proccing almost every 2-3 seconds for ~260 per heal. 100 HPS isn't too bad.

    Most people are reporting around 250 or so per proc, and with a deep Sin build that's a 40% proc rate per attack. Not bad, really -- given that Debilitating has gone from increasing cost to draining resource, and Rogue resource regen rate has gone considerably up, Debilitating won't be nearly as attractive to use against rogues and warriors, so new Leeching may be the way to go. And considering that Cloudy is almost useless against most casters in this game, it'll probably be a decision between Leeching to counter warlock shields, and Debilitating to drain a healer you intend to be focusing on for a while.

    Will have to wait for it to hit live so I can do some live combat parses and see how much the healing works out to, but 250 per proc is nothing to sniff at on paper. Four procs in a fight is 1,000 HP you didn't have before 1.5, at very little cost over your other poison options.

    Yeah, I've parsed it on the dummy doing 117 HPS against a single target. Multi-target (the three dummies) gets around 125 HPS, since it looks like it has a greater chance to proc per strike with Twin Strike but not necessarily more often.

    That being said, I've mainly used it for my solo build, not for PvP. So I don't exactly how that pans out in real warfront conditions.

    Does those poisons work with ranged specs? It's been a while since I've played rogue so I'm almost a newb with these classes here.
