Necromancer Ruinous Scythe Useless Following Hemorrhage Changes

DanteTheDeviant
No minor maim and deals even less DoT unless you spam it, but it's purpose was for applying debuffs...

Please add minor maim to Ruinous Scythe to compensate...

    Hemorrhaging never applied minor maim. The chilled status affect applies minor maim. Hemorrhaging applied minor mangle (reduce enemy max health by 10%). Minor mangle is kind of a weird debuff, anyway. Bosses are immune to it and if trash was already below 90% health, it effectively did nothing. Even if you ignore light attack weaving and damage glyphs and all the various upfront damage normally applied, the damage of Ruinous Scythe is applied before hemorrhaging and before minor mangle. So it is not that you reduce enemy health by 10% and then start doing damage. You do damage, often greater than 10% of enemy health, and then minor mangle kicks in.

    I meant to say minor mangle. While it is not the best in PvE, it matters in PvP which is my favorite content.

    Tbh bleeds applying something as strong as mangle was abit much ontop of haemorrhage but with this change the only source of minor mangle is pulsar? So it deff needs more sources
