Anyone else notice the new orange pulse animation on HotR? I think it looks awesome!

Yea, when you use HotR, an glowy orange ring expands outwards like a shockwave.

Hopefully it's a frontal shockwave and not omnidirectional.

No, I'm saying IF the damage is only conal, the graphic shouldn't be omnidirectional. Obviously if the damage is omnidirectional, so should the graphic.

HotR hits everything around you, not just in a frontal cone.

Personally... while the effect is kinda cool, it just doesn't seem very "Holyish" to me.

I miss the flying hammers. When fighting a large boss, there was a very satisfying "whoooosh" right before the "GONG!!" as the hammer graphic flew up to the target's hit spot.

More info based on my testing. HotR is in fact omnidirectional, but the radius of damage seems to be centered around your primary target, rather than around you.

For example, pretend we have 3 targets labeled A, B, C, and the paladin is labled P.

A...B......C
.....P

The paladin is facing B, and attacking B with HotR. The holy damage portion will hit A and B, but C is out of range. This is working as you expected.



Now let's try to hit B and C!

A...B...P...C

Now the paladin is still facing B, so basically he placed himself between B and C, and turned to face B. He attacks B with HotR...and the holy damage STILL hits A and B, while C takes no damage.



You might think, "but brave, that's just because it's not hitting targets behind you!!" That's not true though...observe!

A..P..B......C

Now the paladin is standing between A and B which are pretty close together, and he faces B, and hits it with HotR. It will hit both A and B with the holy portion yet again.



tl;dr My testing seems to indicate that the aoe holy damage from hammer of the righteous is an 8 yard radius around your primary target, not the paladin, despite what the spell graphic and tooltip seem to suggest.

Now, this is just based on my limited testing, I am not saying with any certainty that this is the way it is. Would love if someone else could do some more testing to see what they come up with.
