Honestly the underwhelming Mark of Consumption puzzled me for a long time as an Upheaval item that only adds some Bleeding Damage and I could not find a use for it in an Upheaval build. There often are better or more appropriate choices for the Medal slot when building for Upheaval.
I just put together a Vitality/Bleeding Savagery/Upheaval Warder build and it got me thinking that this item could get some (meme) support for Vitality/Bleeding which Shaman definitely is begging for.
If possible, I would add the following:
- +106% Vitality Damage to match the Bleeding Damage
- 200 Vitality Damage to Upheaval (probably a good start)
- 100% Lightning Damage converted to Vitality Damage to Upheaval (with visual Upheaval change as well!) - this will prevent Physical Avenger+Gladiator’s Distinction builds from gaining extra punch that they don’t need…
Mind you, this is for a Dual Damage build that is clearly meme, but that’s my thing so it’s what I focus on… This addition is not game-breaking by any means, but it goes along with the theme of the item and adds some support for Vitality Upheaval in the game where there is none currently.
