Cruel repercushions?

I see so many builds using it over Cleansing channel, which puzzles me. It seems to be a fairly weak trait, 50% increased damage on a single attack every 15s, IF one of your attacks got negated. Which means it might not even happen, whereas Cleansing channel helps with our glaring condi weakness.

    Assuming in PVE most boss fights do get negated? Not sure really, kinda wonder same myself. ;)

  • In WvW you can send out a single hammer auto attack or Coalescence of Ruin. The chances of someone having Aegis up to block due to all the guardians is extremely high. Few seconds later you can drop down another COR with a 50% damage boost for massive burst damage.

    As far as PvE is concerned, it helps when bosses phase. It helps you burst back into the next phase to help maintain dps. Every bit of damage counts.

    Ah, that is a good point. Though its impact seems still minimal in pve at least for condi revs. Power would benefit a lot more as you said.
