Dragon Thrashed and Merciless Hand talent

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I'm newish to the game and was wondering if the Doemenal faction's unique talent Merciless Hand affects a PC chanter's Dragon Thrashed chant. Apologies if this has been answered before but I couldn't find a specific answer.

 

Thanks in advance!

It has, but no worries. :)

 

Unfortunately the Merciless Hand only works with attack rolls that deal direct damage. But that includes "pulsing" stuff like Chillfog, Wicked Briars, Sacred Immolation...

 

It does not work with any Damage over Time (DoT) effects. Dragon Thrashed is such a DoT ability. Others would be Come Soft Winds, Disintegrate, Shining Beacon and so on. Crits with those effects get +50% duration - and that's where the higher damage comes from then: more ticks. The damage of the ticks does not get altered by crits. Hence the +0.3 from Merciless Hand doesn't get applied.

 

tl; dr: nope. :)

To be fair once you have Dragon Thrashed chant, doing more damage is the least of your worries. Just focus on staying alive and you’ll find if the enemy doesn’t melt in 10 seconds, it will have melted after 12.
