5 seconds is like 2 auto attacks in raids but you can use it to regen your runes faster too, whichis good but i think 10 sec would be better.

from a pvp perspective i feel like a 5 second buff that's not like, a proc, is way too short.

i felt like a big use for the spell is to use it right before people die and be able to spam howling blast like a 5 year old, and it's almost not even worth it.

The spell tell us "10s", however, I noticed only 5 seconds. That sucks!

In pvp I almost never use soul reaper because of this....

The damage would be good if health wasn't so jumpy in pvp. You can have someone at 30% and with 2 heals they're back at full or you can have someone at 50% and they can get crit for 200k by some warlock and die.

The buff is near useless. I would rather oblit and get the killing blow than SR and get a 4 sec buff.

They're too busy gouging their eyes out after reading your posts, gotta wait for new devs.

I'm pretty sure you're supposed to be putting SR on the target at a certain % depending on how quickly you can get them from that percent to 35%, and attempt to CC the healer during that time. You don't want to put it on when they're at 30% because its too late by then.

But yes, to the original post, the buff is a bit too short to really make use of it for anything other than helping our runes regen.

Well yeah but i mean in BGs i think a HUGE practical use for it is throwing it on someone who is about to die.

like i can soooo see some sexy Soul Reaper mouse overs happening so you can just hover over a name plate and BAM, 50% haste for 10 seconds

You're right, in BGs that is really useful. At least it would be, if the buff lasted long enough to realistically use it.

Honestly with the buff being this ridiculously short, is it even worth it?

Of course soul reaper is amazing on <35% bosses. But on an add that is going to die, I'd say runes would be better spent elsewhere than that pathetic buff.

I don't have any maths to back me up, but I'm just saying, this buff lasts so short.

The haste is enough to refund the rune it used and two others in that 5 seconds. Not sure how 1 rune for 3 isn't a good investment.

You're looking at it the wrong way: You're not supposed to soul reaper when someone's HP is sub 35. It's a prediction ability. You use it when you gauge that the opponent's HP will be below 35 in 5 seconds. Obviously, if you are not good at this, you will fail alot. BUT if you are good with timing, you can seriously mess people up. I've had people get bursted from 80 to 35 within a soul reaper window and have it crit for 130k in their face.


Yup.

I personally jack people up all the time with Soul Reaper.

Soooo, "All the time" for the entire week (probably less) you've had it? Mhmmmm.
