Rend: Is this a nerf ?

Hey, I simply suck at maths and theorycrafting and all that stuff...

Is the change to Rend a buff or a nerf ?

Rend Cost: 20 Fury / A sweeping strike causes all nearby enemiesenemies within 12 yards to Bleed for 700% weapon damage as Physical over 5 seconds.

Old : Gain 9% of the damage done by Rend as Life.

New : Blood Lust : Gain Heal for 0.5% of your maximum Life per second for each affected enemy.

current returns = 9% of dmg from rend

new returns = 0.5% of dmg from rend

Therefore:
0.5% < 9%

Nerf.

It's not .5% of damage from rend. It's .5% of your hp/sec.

I regen 0 hp/sec from armor, all mine is damage based, sooooo nerf?

If it is going to base off of life steals return, then it might work alright, but they have also been taking about changing they way life is recovered.

No. It's .5% of your health pool. per second. (the period was deliberate)

Oh I get it now...... OP doesn't know how to copy/paste.

THE NEW BLOODLUST IS:
"Heal for 0.5% of your maximum Life per second for each affected enemy."

Has nothing to do with rend dmg.. you might want to edit the OP, thanks.

100k health barb gets back 5k/sec?

Oh, per enemy? Still a viable skill for the most part i would say. Ubers and Single targets would blow:/

No, 500 life/sec.

If you have 100k hp and hit one enemy, you get 500 life per second. If you hit two enemies, you get 1000 life/sec.

etc.

Yea you pasted the part that is scratched out and that is apart of the current bloodlust rune... "damage done by Rend." Moron.

The .5% has nothing to do with rend dmg.

Thanks for the help silverfire. I simply hope it's not going to be a trash rune...

It will definitely be a nerf for the pure dmg builds most people run with now. It would seem that they are trying to push barbs toward more defensive builds with this and the supposed lifesteal nerfs.

Hope they haven't ruined rend bc it's one of my favorite skills and synergizes really well with the solo build I like to run.

I'm a bit worried how things are gonna turn out.
This new rend seems to work out worse than revenge.

With stuff like Ignore Pain lasting for 60 secs, crusader skills that buff party all res by 900, etc, I'm expecting incoming damage to be huge. If we can't LS properly, we're all going to have to build like Ace on RoS.
