Odd condi trait interaction
Id be curious to hear how it stacks up versus the mallyx elite, which is normally used with the trait that inflicts burning.
Its a lot of torment from one button yes.
Problem is the length of time over which it occurs on top of the long cast time, which gives it low actual dps.
Mallyx elite is much higher dps due to it continuously procing torment while using other skills and automatically procing diabolic inferno twice per legend swap.
Even in pvp its not as op as it sounds cuz the target would have to stay standing in it… and while yes that does double torment damage, it cuts off more than half of the potential torment stacks (if they’re not stupid) which means the double torment damage isn’t making up for the lost stacks…and that’s on top of the fact that torment base damage is less than that of bleeding in pvp…
I tested it, and it was a very decent amount of torment stacks for sure while not every running out of energy. Is it better….not sure there.
This is sort of the condi-rev standard in sPvP for the burst/unyielding anguish’s point control…
In PvE, though, it’s still outdps’ed by taking Venom Enhancement and Diabolic Inferno and then just channeling Embrace the Darkness and Jalis Hammers while using your 2/3/5 weapon skills off cd.
The biggest reason for this is that Abyssal Chill’s torment only has a base duration of 3 seconds, whereas Embrace the Darkness’s base is 6 seconds, Searing Fissure’s Burn is 4 seconds, and Echoing Eruption is 10 seconds. And that’s before all of your Expertise is factored in. So over the course of a fight you get much larger Torment stacks in addition to being able to have the energy to spam Searing Fissure for burns and then poison stacks/more burns as a bonus from your traits.
(You still have Abyssal Chill though, so sometimes it’s worth using Unyielding Anguish… Like right at the start of a fight, or when coming back from doing mechanics or whatever.)
