Dragonwrath and YOU

So I've been getting hammered in tells about how this staff works. I've been doing some testing this past day and how it works is pretty simple, but the procs from DD spells and DOTs are different. You cast a DD spell, let's take icelance for example, the staff procs and instantly casts another icelance . The damage is applied instantly(there is NO travel time on the proc), but you can see the graphic of a second icelance traveling towards your target. Here is an example of the proc:

14:40:28> Siiz's Ice Lance hits Training Dummy for 1 Frost.(10466 Overkill) (Critical)
14:40:28> Siiz's Ice Lance hits Training Dummy for 1 Frost.(10418 Overkill) (Critical)

Now, when you cast a spell and it hits, if the staff procs and the second spell is cast, the second can crit even though your first one didn't. For example:

14:20:55> Siiz's Ice Lance hits Training Dummy for 1 Frost.(5331 Overkill)
14:20:55> Siiz's Ice Lance hits Training Dummy for 1 Frost.(11015 Overkill) (Critical)

In return, the proc can also hit if you crit your initial spell. Example:

14:25:23> Siiz's Frostbolt hits Training Dummy for 1 Frost.(27912 Overkill) (Critical)
14:25:24> Siiz's Frostbolt hits Training Dummy for 1 Frost.(13511 Overkill)

How it works with DOTS

Instead of coping the spell like it does with DD spells or instant, DOTs are different. If the staff procs on a DOT tick, instead of casting the same "spell", it will cast Wrath of Tarecgosa, and match the damage of the DOT rick (not the whole damage of the DOT over its duration). For example:

15:23:01> Training Dummy suffers 1 Fire damage from Siiz's Living Bomb.(5453 Overkill)
15:23:02> Siiz's Wrath of Tarecgosa hits Training Dummy for 1 Arcane.(5453 Overkill)
15:23:04> Training Dummy suffers 1 Fire damage from Siiz's Living Bomb.(5454 Overkill)
15:23:05> Siiz's Wrath of Tarecgosa hits Training Dummy for 1 Arcane.(5454 Overkill)
15:23:07> Training Dummy suffers 1 Fire damage from Siiz's Living Bomb.(5453 Overkill)
15:23:07> Siiz's Wrath of Tarecgosa hits Training Dummy for 1 Arcane.(5453 Overkill)


Right now it seems it will always match the damage of the DOT tick, unlike DD spells where the proc can crit or hit.

Here is another example of a DOT, but critting this time.

15:22:31> Training Dummy suffers 1 Fire damage from Siiz's Living Bomb.(12431 Overkill) (Critical)
15:22:31> Siiz gains Siiz's Electrical Charge (4).
15:22:32> Siiz's Wrath of Tarecgosa hits Training Dummy for 1 Arcane.(12431 Overkill)


I tested the staff when I had 2 FoF charges up. I cast icelance and consumed my first charge of FoF, the staff procced and instantly cast another icelance and consumed the second FoF charge. Here is the combat log for this event:

15:46:48> Siiz gains Siiz's Fingers of Frost (2).
15:46:50> Siiz casts Ice Lance at Training Dummy.
15:46:50> Siiz's Ice Lance hits Training Dummy for 1 Frost.(32881 Overkill) (Critical)
15:46:50> Siiz's Fingers of Frost (1) diminishes.
15:46:50> Siiz's Ice Lance hits Training Dummy for 1 Frost.(33590 Overkill) (Critical)
15:46:51> Siiz's Fingers of Frost fades from Siiz.


If your "copied" fireball crits it can trigger ignite, and ignite also benefits from the staff proc. Meaning the ignite DOT can proc wrath of tarecgosa.

PLEASE realize this is a huge work in progress and many things I have not tested yet. I am trying my best to test a lot of things so it will take some time. Be patient =)
I think that Dragonheart deserves Dragonwrath more than Siiz does. Silly PvE gnomes.
thanks for the info

Looking forward to seeing more test results.

Really? I hope that is just a bug.
Oh man can't wait for mine thanks for clearing some obvious questions up.
Thanks Siiz.
Who jelly?

Thx much!
Thank you, tiny Gnome. I don't usually trust people with mustaches such as yours, but I'll make an exception this one time. I'm looking forward to reading about the proc rate, obviously.
Thanks for the information! Looking forward to further updates as they come.
Might this thread be more appropriate for the damage dealing forum, or even maybe the raiding and dungeons section?
Does it proc HS/FoF?
Looking forward to seeing your numbers as fire on Alysrazor next week...rofl.

Does it proc HS/FoF?

Yes, it's literally the same spell, so it should generate HS/FoF

Some new things (I'll put in main post as well):

Flame orb/FFO don't seem to be benefiting from the staff, probably because I don't think it's considered a direct damage or DOT spell.

If your "copied" fireball crits it will trigger ignite, and ignite also benefits from the staff proc.

Probably.
Thank you for the added information. I can't wait to get an idea as to the proc rate.
