How good is new Touch of Fear


Recommended Posts

So I have a Dark/Dark Tanker which I enjoy very much but his build was done a while ago before the ToF changes. How good is it now ?

Should I spend an hour and possibly several million inf to redo this build ?

If so what should I take out to incorporate it? My prime candidate to cut would be the self rez along with all the damage procs that I have spread out across the build to accommodate the new power (The procs from Shadow Punch, Shadow Maul, Siphon Life, Midnight Grasp and Fireball)

So I did the thing, dropped Soul Transfer, dropped the procs from everything except Shadow Maul and 5 slotted Touch of Fear with Armageddon and holy crap this is just what was missing from Dark Melee !

Now between Soul Drain, Fireball, Shadow Maul and Touch of Fear  I can just spam AoE powers until the cows come home. Really liking this new power
