Thread: Oracle - glacial insignia

    Default Oracle - glacial insignia

    What's the trick with this? I don't have the new souls and I can't figure it out by looking at the builder, but this thing is hitting hard every second.

    glacial insignia appears to have a 15s CD, but I was getting hit every sec and each was a crit for ~5.5k. I see the oracle ability to reduce the global CD to 1sec, but can't find anything to reduce/remove the glacial insignia CD itself.

    Just wondering if it's some other CD that triggers the glacial CD reset/removal for a short period of time or if the ability to run around spamming 5k crits every sec is just the new norm.

    It's the first time I've really noticed it, so just trying to understand what it's all about. I'm sure it's something I'm just over-looking.

    Thanks for putting the pieces together for me. ;)

    I notice this too.

    Thought #1: Why is this tactician actually hitting me hard
    Thought #2: Oh, same (similar?) icon...well this sort of hurts.

    Gah... thank you for pointing out what I should've fully read. I didn't fully absorb the fact that it lasted 10s and removed the insignia CD for that period.

    Probably shammy to add the crits on all of em.

    Glad it's only 10s every 1 min.

    Time for a morning cup of caffeine.

    Special 1 minute nuke build utilizing passives and Rage of the North from Shaman coupled with Battle Fury and Glacial Insignia from Oracle and stacking a lot of CP.

    Well, at least para has the best burst in the game.( If no absorbs are present.) But yeah I can make a mock up nb/bard build and top kbs and damage with it as well.. Not as bursty as oracle/sham but more consistent damage and can switch between healing and dps. Then there is pyrochon. Warrior is still more OP in pve for dps though arguably.

    That oracle/shaman is definitely not the way to go in PvP unless you want zero utility and worse average damage outside of your Battle Fury.

    I'm still recommending Oracle/Druid/Inq as a pvp spec.

    Didn't know that providing nearly all Oracle buffs, a double cleanse and a healing reduction with the option to get even more stuff is zero utility these days.

    I run 41 Oracle /28 Justicar /7 Inq every so often. It's fun with stacked Spell Power to throw out a big 5k Hammer of Duty followed by the Battle Fury 10s GI barrage (with 14% damage bonus) followed by another big HoD (with 28% damage bonus if you time it just right). Insignia of Blood spam is pretty good too.

    Are you implying that Light Makes Right increases your Glacial Insignia by 14%? That is incorrect. It only applies to Life abilities.
