Covenant Specific Potency Conduits
General Potency Conduits
- 洞察一击 - This provides more Mastery during the duration of 精序兵戈, which just furthers to cement that you'll want to continue alternating abilities and obeying the Mastery. The extra duration isn't as important since it already lasts longer than Xuen does and its 30s baseline duration is as long as two 风火雷电 casts.
- 法夜之道 - This is potentially the weakest of the Covenant-specific Conduits. In situations where you're likely to use 妖魂踏 to its fullest potential, this just magnifies that potential. In Mythic Plus, 5 targets to hit is a very common occurrence. You are at the mercy of getting a Faeline that hits them all, but given the size of some packs and how closely they can be stacked, this shouldn't frequently be a game-breaking problem.
- 骨髓酒花 - This merely increases the damage that you do during its duration and lets you use it more, if you're going to go with Necrolord then this will be a very powerful increase in damage, but not enough to move this above the other covenants.
- 注能映像 - You'll certainly use this conduit if you're going to go Venthyr, but adding a modifier to something that's already not great doesn't make it magically better.
- 运筹连环 - 神鹤引项踢 is a very common spell in multi-target situations, and even more common with the addition of 赤精之舞 as a talent in Shadowlands. While this never quite reaches the power of this ability in Legion, more damage to the ability that does most of our damage in AOE situations is always a good thing. This will likely be a staple of our power if you're looking to focus on AOE and Mythic Plus, but in single target it won't be as powerful even with 赤精之舞 talented.
- 三魂归一 - While this doesn't quite increase your damage as much as it might look at first glance, since it currently increases the damage that your clones do, and not you, this is still a very strong Conduit for single target in situations where you can focus your 风火雷电 clones. In AOE situations this won't be very useful.
- 怒拳之心 - This conduit may look to be super strong, but you have to remember how much of 怒雷破's current damage profile is based on 开阖掌法, without this Azerite Trait to prop up 怒雷破's damage, adding a modifier to it just doesn't increase things as much as it should. If 怒雷破 is ever tuned to be stronger in the future then this Conduit may be come super powerful, but its currently relatively mediocre. However, if you're looking for one that's decent at both single target and AOE without being spectacular at either, then this will be a reasonable choice.
- 雪怒羁绊 - At first implementing, it looked like this was going to be THE conduit. However, with the relatively lackluster performance of Xuen as cooldown, it's not as strong as it once could be. The strongest that it could/should be is when using Kyrian, but unfortunately this just de-syncs the major cooldowns, weakening its possibilities.
If you're choosing between conduits, you'll probably prioritize 三魂归一
then the Covenant Specific Conduit for single target, or 运筹连环
then the Covenant Specific Conduit unless you're choosing Night Fae then you'll start with 法夜之道
