    Default Intercede: How much Hate?

    Quick question.
    How does Intercede create Threat level? is it a ward? is it a stoneskin? If so, what is the #s?
    Does it not actually do anything Hate-wise? and if not why use it? why take up a hot key slot?
    Thanks

    they way i understand hate is 1 hit point = 1 hate point so depending on the hit you take for the person would equal that amount of hate.. but frankly when i tank i dont use sustain or intercede too much since it just makes me die more.. and thats not good the longer i stay alive the better chance i have of taking control of the mob.

    Intercede takes the next big hit from the person you put it on. If they are below 50% health you take two hits. It is primarily used by fighters in raid who are not the main tank to ease spike damage eg Spitting the two corpuscles off the Amorphous Drake. I have never used it as main tank. If someone peels a mob I make an effort to get it off them but I dont intercede their damage so I can die when I get it back and wipe the whole raid.

    I use sustain in special situations. Usually when I am pulling a large encounter and I need the healers to pre-ward or pre-heal I throw sustain on the defiler, throw up sentry watch, stone sphere and Tower of stone. I usually get all the mobs on me that way

    As a brawler I use it a ton on raids to help take some hits for the MT in tricky situations. Most of the time it just ends up getting me killed for trying to actually be useful on a raid.

    Good job SOE. :46:

    Only time I use it is on the pull of a named; when I'm not the MT... ward, intercept and ask my healer to get ready and I stand with the MT. The most dangerous time of any encounter is the initial pull.

    Worst case: If the MT gets stuned/charmed or whatever on the pull I'll be right there chances are high I'll already have agro but I'll be high up ebnough to lock it in with a couple of taunts.

    Best and most common case: I take a big hit maybe agro for a split second (which I generally survive); MT takes control on full health and a mob already begun to be debuffed. Paladin limps back to the raid and starts to fight.

    Its one of the most usefull abilitys for an OT to assist a MT in Oh Shit Situation. Also usefull to protect DDs for 1-2 Seconds Tanks need to get aggro back or allow them to use there deaggro skills.
    Byside if you wear any Equip that proc Wards or Stoneskins on damage these go also off on these and then you mostly go out of it with nearly no or small amount of damage.


    Tip: To the ones that get onehitted by using it. Maybe try the lower lever version of this spells will not take the full amount of the damage away from the other, but you also will not get the full hit.

    its not that i have a problem with dying for keeping the MT up. the thing is the recent change to take 2 hits if target is already low, so back to sariah, i took:

    - 3 hits with each ~1500 melee damage (must have been a combined attack or some shit)
    - 5000 divine
    - another 4000 melee oO

    but the MT lived... so... /shrug


    oh and besides... not everyone is wearing that strange BP from TNT

    Well how to use the Intercede line is good and all. Also hearing about every1 getting 1 shotted is always fun.

    But Noone has answered the origanal question from a HATE GAIN piont of veiw.

    Thats what i want to know: Does Interceded produce Threat on a agressing mob or not? and how so?

    yes depending on the amount that you ward there is a hate created but unless it's on pull it dosent jump you up on the hate list like taunts(rescue) or spike dmg if it did then my defiler would be die 20 times times a night since im constantly warding when i raid/group. like i said earlyer 1 hit point = 1 hate point
