Today, we are once again, going to obliterate a raid boss.... within 4 seconds!
This combo is built around 法术吸取
, and the buff 真菌绽放
. It is a buff that certain NPCs in Drustvar use, that increases damage by 25%!
If you Spellsteal this, it will stack separately, and it thankfully has a duration of 25 seconds. Even better, it works inside raids!
We stack up a bunch of these NPCs, and use a Demon Hunter AOE CC (悲苦咒符
) to make them cast the buff at the same time.
To be able to Spellsteal this many buffs, I have to be Arcane, since they get a discount on their Spellsteal. But without Icy Veins, I need to get another source of haste, to reach GCD cap. So for this, we use a priest 能量灌注
spell. We also made use of 奥术增效
(which remains when you zone into raids!) as well as the 风暴虹吸
legendary to boost our damage.
Two things that didn't work out, were Spellstealing a Combustion from another mage, and the 珍贵的血棘指环
(stealth ring). The Bloodthorn Loop ended up scaling with my damage boost so it one shot me over and over. This was even the case through immunities!
And without Bloodthorn, I was unable to exit PvP combat (which Spellsteal forced me into), even when using invisibility.
So ultimately, I fixed some targeting issues, and went for even more stacks than I originally intended (about 18). This leads to a 1.25^18 = 55.5, a bit more than 5000% dmg boost!
Of course... this was reported and already fixed (since it is so gamebreaking)
It is quite funny that this is an old bug from BFA that was still undiscovered! That expansion sure has lots of mysteries...
