I know I grumbled about this talent in my last post, but on second thoughts I think it deserves a whiny post all of its own.
For two talent points you get to boost the spell's damage by a whopping six per cent.
Shadow word: pain accounts for about 15 per cent of my damage on bosses, which puts the value of each 'improving' talent point at less than half a percentage point increase to overall dps. I remember reading one WoW Insider columnist say he considered one per cent per point to be a benchmark for worthwhile talents. It ticks nearly 1k less than vampiric touch, and with the introduction of improved devouring plague it will even be doing less damage than that.
Could this be the worst "improved" talent of all time?
I'm seriously thinking of taking my points out of this. Someone talk me out of it.
