View Full Version : Grim Coil, any good?

12-13-2004, 06:43 AM
<DIV>Just dinged 22 last night and then logged off, havent tried Grim Coil.  How is it?  Should I upgrade to AdeptIII right away?</DIV>

<DIV>If memory serves it first did about 22 damage a tick when I recieved it originally, which isn't bad at all considering its overall damage was decent.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>However, upgrading to Adept I resulted in about 43 damage a tick, making it a fearsome punch for only cast.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>It doesnt last real long, but it does the job and can easily be recast when it wears off if you want to continue the carnage. All in all, I'd say its an excellent spell and a welcome weapon for our arsenal.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Defenitely upgrade, as it becomes much more effective if you do.</DIV>

<DIV>I use grim coil almost exclusivly for pulling, its got nice range, and it looks like you're throwing a water ballon at the mob :p</DIV>

I remember it doing 28/tick earlier today (Appr1) at level 22. I just upgraded it to Appr3 for 40sp and dinged level 23 so I'm not sure what stats I'll get on it tomorrow.I liked to use it for pulls as well. With timing and from max range, I use GC, DoF, then RA before starting my HO as the mob closes in. I prefer to cast GC before RA for the pull since RA is fast-cast and less likely to get interrupted.

<DIV>I have app 3 at level 25 and it hits for 38 dmg per tick for 3 ticks. It's a nice spell but nothing to get excited about really. The best part is it kind of looks like death coil from warcraft 3.</DIV>

34 points of damage for Appr3 at level 23. Mana cost was 42 points (IIRC).Still nowhere near as efficient as my Righteous Anger Adept1, which is roughly 75 dmg for 11 or 12 power.

<DIV>I have the adept 1 version..at level 30 it does 54 a tick or 216 dmg total ....good for pulling I guess! </DIV>

<DIV>You have to remember that this is a 3 tick DOT(Damage Over Time). I have this at adept 1, level 24 and I'm getting 40 damage per tick for a total of 120 damage. Not too bad in my opinion.</DIV>

I could have sworn I saw 4 ticks using this.If it's 3 ticks it's kind of 'bleh', but 4 ticks x 22-?? damage for 38 power is pretty decent. I too just bought the Adept 1 (from the black market broker) but haven't had a chance to test it.

Its definatley 3 ticks only, does ~50ish damage per tick at Adept1, I use it alot.

12-13-2004, 09:45 PM
definately 3 ticks. At level 27 it does around 43 per tick at app3.

<DIV>It "TICS" three times only..but lets not forget the intial strike.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>It does hit 4 times.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>But only tics 3 times...</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Shoot at the mob intial hit</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>3 more tics</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Syl</DIV>

Yeah you get 1 "tick" when the spell hits, and then 3 waves of DoT damage.Still, with Adept 1 (level 23), 4 x 38 damage = 152 damage for 38(?) power. Definately our most damaging and power-savvy spell at that level.

12-15-2004, 12:27 PM
Not our most dmg/power savvy spell? What is? I believe it does more damage than anything else we have...

12-15-2004, 06:50 PM
Righteous Anger (Adept 1), uses 16 power and does 75 points of damage at 23.

12-16-2004, 12:41 AM
True, Righteous Anger is still a tad better at 23. 4.7 vs 4.0 damage per power.Power Cleave is efficient as well, but I haven't used it in a while since my 2h greened out, so I don't remember exactly.

Not positive but i think its 58/tick with adept3 at 28
