think it has to do with the fact that lifeburn is modified by the mobs hp and some mobs have buggy or other wise unintended effects on lifeburn thus it's disabled.

 i suggest they just make lifeburn like soulburn and shorten the recast accordingly.  this has been suggested over and over again ever since it was nerfed but it always fell on def ears.

yea,  back when i use to raid my necro i always argued that lifeburn should be changed to something more practical but the scrubs loved their lifeburn too much.      undead tide = useless   vs.  plane shift = amazing       lifeburn = unusable on more and more mobs     elemental blast = amazing

   devs have been penalizing this class for being top parse in eof/kos for 5 years now..

lifeburn is one of kind.  no other spell takes the targets HP into consideration.

 i never said tht necros can't parse well.  i mentioned that thier abilities usually underwhelm.

seriosly... rather upset about the conj/nec diffrences. conj gets a spell that does high damage that was suposed to kill pet but never worked that way, necros got... 2 extra dot ticks....

ok i get that necro is suposed to be over time damage but potency dosent even work with the double dot rotting flesh AA...
