Pyroatheist.9031 Posted July 17, 2019 Share Posted July 17, 2019 Alrighty, time for a bit of comparison between vanilla shatters and the chrono shatters.Mind WrackSkill Coefficients ListedClone # || Pre-patch Vanilla || Vanilla || Chrono || Chrono vs Slow0 clones || 1.15 || 1.15 || 0 || 01 clone || 2.3 || 2.3 || 1.15 || 1.532 clones || 2.76 || 2.4 || 1.6 || 2.133 clones || 3.22 || 2.8 || 2.1 || 2.793Prior to this patch, mind wrack deviated from tooltip damage at higher numbers of clones, resulting in a damage boost. There was an undocumented change that removed that damage boost, reducing the damage of all mind wrack shatters. Additionally, the chrono version of the shatter is weaker at all numbers of clones except a full 3-clone shatter with slow. If the target does not have slow, it will be drastically weaker at all clone levels.Cry of FrustrationTheoretical Confusion stacks per secondClone # || Vanilla || Chrono0 clones || .04 || 01 clone || .08 || .052 clones || .12 || .133 clones || .16 || .3The vanilla cry of frustration is slightly stronger or slightly weaker than the chrono version at 1 and 2 clones, and obviously superior with 0 clones. However, the chrono version is drastically stronger when using exclusively 3-clone shatters. The addition of alacrity and traiting illusions for lower cooldowns pushes this more in favor of the chrono version. However, the existence of mirage means that chrono still will be a substantially less effective condition setup.SummaryIt's trash.Edited mind wrack summary and table based on some additional testing I did on a hunch Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
