Sun's Embrace

Post by Apimius » Tue Sep 20, 2022 10:05 pm

Hello,

please lower the cooldown from the Sun's Embrace spell: https://database.turtle-wow.org/?spell=46046.

Smite priests currently have 2 problems, 1. a missing hit talent, 2. mana sustainability - they go oom like suuuper fast.

The high elf racial Sun's Embrace is a great way of reducing the mana cost of your offensive holy spells, but for a raidboss encounter a 5 minute cooldown is way too long to make any significant difference in endgame. Right now its 20 seconds or 5 casts of smite, holy fire or holy nova (this part is currently bugged). Please remove the only 5 casts component.

I would love to see Sun's Embrace at a 1 min cd. This would also allow a much more interesting boss rotation, where you would use holy fire followed by 3 smites as the normal rotation (mana save mode - 40s), repeat this until Sun's Embrace is up, then pure smite spam while suns embrace is active (possibly combined with trinkets and power infusion - 20s) while keeping shadow word pain up all the time.

There is also the issue with Sun's Embrace using a global cooldown when used. Why? I dont see the reason for that ability to have a global attached to it. This may also just be a bug, i am not sure. I made a report about it on GitHub.

Thanks for reading and considering!

Sun's embrace is meant to be a tradeoff of DPS for DPM, that's why it has a GCD, to slow down your damage. Use it if you are gonna need that 200-300 extra mana down the line, and don't use it if you dont need the mana and want to push dps. It's GCD doesnt need to be removed.

But yeah its cooldown is hilariously long right now. could use 2 or 3 mins.
