You know what'd be a cool Ret PvP ability?

Paladin
If we had an ability on like a 15 second CD that changed all DoTs on us or an ally into HoTs. Or if CS had a chance to convert a DoT on you into a HoT for the same amount. Yeah, it wouldn't be useful against some classes who don't have DoTs, but I thought it'd be neat.
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

That's the most overpowered thing I have ever heard! On a 15 second cooldown too!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Actually, it's a really cool, original idea. Numbers can always be tweaked to make it balanced, so "overpowered" isn't really a relevant comment (you could change the casting time, number of dots effected, percentage of a dot that is effected, whatever).

The mechanic is what matters, and this one is quite intriguing. There's a nice element of karma about it that suits our class. Maybe some designer will read this and be inspired for a future patch.
Heh that's a cool idea. Bump.
it fits the class as a whole, with room for spec specific variations. I like it.
Perhaps converting 100% of all the DoTs on you would be OP, but converting 100% of one DoT every 15s, or 50% of all the DoTs, could be more balanced.

Probably need a longer cooldown than 15s, though, if it wipes all the DoTs for even partial HoTs.


details, details

the core idea is very good.


dots don't tend to have cooldowns
Warlocks would kill themselves.. IRL
or or lyke, we should totally make Paladins have this skill with no CD that basically makes us invincible for unlimited time
I want ice lance
OR if it took the dots off of you and put it on the caster! GENIUS! Maybe 20s cd.

that would be a nice DK or mage ability.

Both mlg classes. Boo

But it doesn't make any sense for them... We're Retribution! With the loss of Reckoning bombs, we haven't had a whole lot that lives up to the name. Being able to pass off DoTs would fit the theme nicely.


paladins are all holy all the time.

only pally dots are holy


why would it make sense for ret to inflict frost fever?
My post was extremely sarcastic. When someone suggests an ability where all DoTs should be cast back on the caster, it's probably a troll. The OP is a horrible idea. If it sounds cool to you, it's probably not for someone else.
sarcasm and text don't mix well, I never assume sarcasm without an emoticon (that's why they exist)


You'd have better luck explaining why you think it's a bad idea.
Because we wouldn't be inflicting it. You'd be inflicting it on YOURSELF, as retribution for trying to use such dishonorable tactics. The more I think about it, the more I kinda love it.
