Touch of Chaos better than soul fire ?
Return to board index
earlier today with 488 ilvl reforged to mastery (even mostly gemmed (for affliction)) i tryed to test out the damage output of ToC vs. SF. this is min/maxing and would probably only change the execute phase of demonology if i am correct.
i tested with same buffs etc over and over again, and ended up with 150k SF crits and 130k ToC crits(65k hits), meaning the damage pr. execute ofc is higher on SF, but since SF costs 80 Dfury and ToC only 40, i had to run some numbers and i ended up with this: theoretically you have (1000/80) SF casts if entering meta with full fury (just forget doom and corruption ToC refresh for a sec) and 1000/40 ToC casts meaning twice as many, but since ToC is not a 100% crit ofc soul fire is better ? or is it !
on MY toon with current stats, this mean that if i have have 15% crit my ToC will hit for 75k on average while soulfire will always only hit the 150k making the damage equal?and so every crit % above 15 is more worth it for ToC ?
i realise that SF damage scales with crit but i doubt it will provide more damage than a single ToC crit, also another thing to notice is the standard decay of Dfury, for every second you have Meta enabled Dfury will decay wich makes casting SF decay more Dfury pr. cast than a the instant ToC probably resulting in maybe 2-3 more ToC's and 1-2 less SF's, this is all theory so i need some feedback ? am i missing something ? imo SF is gimping itself by always being a crit.

I use ToC as soon as I get into Meta, to refresh corruption, then Doom, then if I have MC procs ill SF. I enter meta around 800 fury and leave at 450, then build back up and repeat. Back the the SF Toc thing, if the boss is about to do a phase where they go away(like last boss HoF) ill spam Toc just to get fast damage. Otherwise ill SF only with MC procs ofc.
