    Default Re: Spell Double Attack VS Potency

    It's all relative. I'm not a fan of SDA at all. Crunching the numbers, SDA vs Potency amounts to the same OVER TIME. SDA "could" result in higher spike damage, but it "could" also result in lower spike damage. You can't have one without sacrificing the chance at the other. If you look at it this way... over time your spike damage is higher with potency. Plus potency effects procs (I think), so you get that side bonus. Oh, and I have TW. But even without TW, I say Potency > SDA. I want to kill more people consistency then randomly killing or getting smoked. I'd rather know my hit rate that hoping for hit rate.

    For me.. the real debate is Potency vs CritBonus. I've fully tested both and on average the damage is the same. BUT, you have to consider your targets and what their crit mit is. If I'm just killing nubs all day, potency is king. But if you are fighting tough 6v6s and really trying to kill the better players/classes, I choose crit bonus. It has a higher spike damage and getting crits on those people that are rock'n 140+ crit mit is required.

    I'm currently doing a mix. 95% CB and 80% Potency. Seems to be doing well.

    Enjoy

    enchanters are different from the other casters, they kill with CC and thus SDA isn't as important to you guys but to sorc and summoners SDA is the way to go.

    with that logic potency isn't important to chanters either.

    I'd prefer a spell double'd Chromatic Shower any day.. so no, I'd disagree.
    With the nerfs to CC and the amount of ways people can now get out of CC, enchanter is a completely different class than it used to be. Sadly.

    If you have ever been a brawler and gotten hit with some lame ass warlocks double Plaguebringer. You know that any warlock who doesnt get 4% sda in pvp is retarded. You will kill anyone if you gear right and pick your adorns correctly.

    Smart dirges who put on a lot of crit mit however are annoying as hell. I hate scouts who are hard to kill. Thank god only Troubs and rangers can even give me trouble. Actually rangers just make me compensate for snares when i own them. They are left shocked.

    Now imagine your double'd Chromatic Shower with Time Warp when you have 100+ CritBonus or if fighting a scrub, 90+ Potency.

    Your focusing on burst.... with TW, SDA is trivial as an Illy.

    On that note.. are you even playing Peak? If so, pst...

    Not really. I log in every once in a while to get frustrated that there is no one to kill.
    And yeah, obviously with TW up 24/7 there's no need for spell double attack.
    Most fights are (were) over fast enough anyway.
