The Passive 巫毒步
reduces the duration of the 寒冰之触
DoT from 20 seconds to 16 seconds! There are only two points where the reduced duration of 寒冰之触
makes a huge impact.
The first relevant point is at the end of Phase 2, when the raid generally has ~9 stacks of 寒冰之触
. Starting the Intermission lets the debuff reset. Being a Troll shortens the 寒冰之触
DoT by multiple ticks, which is a lot of raid damage that is missing when comparing a raid of Trolls to a raid of not Trolls.
The second relevant point is at the end of the Phase 2 intermission. The raid generally gets one stack of 寒冰之触
after defeating the wall.
- After breaking out Nathanos, a Troll's stacks will reset before the first tick of 寒冰之触 in Phase 3 because of the shorter duration.
- For non-Trolls, the Intermission stacks will carry over into Phase 3.
- This means that the majority of Method went into the final phase with 1 less stack of 寒冰之触 than non-Trolls.
- One stack individually doesn't sound like much, but one stack on the entire raid is a massive amount of healing in the last phase and shortens the amount of time they have to burn Jaina.
