I’m trying to wrap my head around devotions, and I have a few questions for more experienced players.
Two things seem to make a skill great at procing devotions:
1: Multiple attacks.
Either by ticking regularly on multiple targets (like WoP) or ticking multiple times per second (Like AAR)
Bonus points if it does both these things (like SBoE)
2: long cooldown and short duration, which increase the base proc chance.
Bonus points if the skill’s duration is short but it can still proc past the initial duration (Like Vire’s Might with volcanic stride)
Both seem to make procing devotions reliably, the second one being way more predictable (like binding hourglass on an instant skill with a cooldown of 4+ seconds like Horn of Gandar for example)
But the first one allows you to “spam” a devotion, if you will: get more if it instead of getting it predictably.
Is there a consensus as to what are the best devotion procers in the game ?
Off the top of my head:
Word of Pain
Curse of Frailty
Storm Box of Elgoloth
Vire’s might (with volcanic stride)
Any AA skill
…Which am I missing ?
Are there any other skill like Vire’s might that can proc devotions past their “official” duration ?
And second related question:
Which devotions would be worth “Spamming” ?
Could you make a build around procing a specific devotion reliably so it becomes your main damage dealer ? (Besides Mysterymeat’s ATV build)
