Decimate Defense >>> Soul Eater again?

Josiah.2967Josiah.2967 Member ✭✭✭

Looking at the number it seems like Decimate Defense provides more DPS. It also appears that if you use food like Mintberry Swirl, Decimate Defense provides more healer for PVE (open world). Is there very a reason to use Soul Eater now?

    Decimate Defenses can not deal more damage when your crit chance is at 100% So it's redundant in every scenario where your crit chance is at 100%.

    Simple logic.

    At this point, I'd wish they had left Soul Eater alone and instead just reduced the crit gain on Decimate Defenses to 1% and added a ½% damage modifier per vuln stack on foe. Hindsight, amirite?

    Soul Eater is more damage in raid, DD in PvE. This has always been the case.

    So true ... the worst are the people complaining that they are 'going back' to DD because it's better DPS now ... um, OK.

    If you think balancing is only driven by performance and justified by comparisons to other classes then prepare to be educated:

    Good grief! That is like giving up harder... with prejudice!
