Any StamDK uses Cauterize?

Saw this on reddit, tried it out last night. Wasn't sure if it's healing myself lol... or heals only people around me. But it's pretty nice to get 3.5 ~ 5k heal burst every 5 sec, for merely 2k magicka cost...

Is it worth replacing Fragment shield with its minor brutality? It sure won't replace Vigor or Rally...

    I've been using it with Forward Momentum and Vigor (popping frag shield first) and seems really effective, even for a total scrubby noob sDK as myself.

    Major Mending on your Vigor and Rally or a pretty "meh" heal? Seems like an obvious choice to me.

    I find it very unnecessary on my build. I'd rather keep my ~11k magicka just for Volatile Armour and Fragmented Shield. Besides, Major Mending + Vigor, Forward Momentum HoT, and Seventh Legion proc are enough healing for me.

    If it granted Major Savagery I would have said yes. Because aside from the heal on the skill, it would have also buffed your other heals indirectly by offering higher crit chance. As well as buffing your offensive potential of course.

    Sadly Cauterize only offers Major Prophecy, which is useless to StamDK, so it's a no for me.

    I’ve forgotten what changes they made to this skill this patch as it’s not hit me yet console but why would you use Cauterize that gives only major prophecy over flames that gives both major prophecy and savagery plus flames would activate magic return from passives for doing flame damage on a stamdk or have they given cauterize major savagery as well? Just curious

    It's no longer just "meh" though... it now scales on EITHER ur max mag or stamina, whichever higher. so it's a nice added heal that costs less then Frag Shield.

    But, like others said, Frag shield got major mending and minor brut.

    I'm replacing Reverse Strike with it, so keeping Igneous Shield. 7k heal in Cyro +25% from I.S. is pretty good.

    i went back to original morph, the fireball damage that was used stamDK only for the crit buff, and a teeny tiny damage...

    now each balls is about 7.5k, so there's significant damage too.

    HOWEVER

    in Cyrodiil, a ball of 7k damage every 5 second is completely underwhelmed compared to 7.5k HEAL every 5 seconds.

    just another observation. going back to Cauterize.
