I just got this spell recently, when do you use it? It has a long cast time & does moderate damage, I feel like I'm lowering my dps by using it.

I just got this also  and it seems to do at least 250-300 on blue cons at Apprentice 1. I think it only has a cast time of 3 with and a recover of .5 . I've been parsing and I think its the highest dps I have in my line next to walts. Elegent blade on the other hand seems to have the worst dps for me.

Hmmm, I don't recall seeing numbers that big. I'll try it again & pay more attention. One thing I do like is that its a "cloak" ability that can be used from the front....very useful for HO's in a duo

Yeah I thought that sounded high - just checked and it does 223 arcane damage at appentice IV, according to the info that comes up when examined. Not sure if it is solid 223, but Dissenting Cantata hits harder at 230-281 mental damage apprentice IV, plus you can be move while casting unlike Eli's. I tend to use Eli's when soloing or if it comes up in a HO, but rarely spend power on it in a group when other abilities (like Dissenting Cantata) can be used when moving, which I seem to do a lot to stay behind a target :smileywink:

I think I got it, when you compare Eli's vs Discontenting the big difference is the power cost, type of HO triggerd & the cast time....didn't notice the cast-while-moving, but that is also interesting. Eli's is basically very situational, it uses less power for the same delay & also provides the rare frontal-cloak for HO's, very nice when you are duoing with a priest. So not a bad spell, not a great spell....just sorta their. I'd feel alot different if the casting time weren't so long....say 2 vs 3 seconds

I use it all the time still at level 37. It is my 3rd attack song in my regular group. I usually use it while waiting for ho to refresh when soloing.. As it is not a HO solo song.

i use it often at lvl 32, but as far as the cloak HO from the front goes, i usually hit elise's ditty as it also triggers the cloak and can be done from teh front or the back.
