I’m looking at this baby here.
There’s the obvious attractions to it. 37 spell damage? Tasty on so many levels. Well, ok, just one level, but it’s a damn fine level.
What I’m truly concerned with here is the Scryer proc. I could care less about the Aldor one (they’re way too fancy pants for my tastes). Basically what happens is your shiny new necklace will shoot an Arcane Bolt at you’re target, dealing some odd damage. This some odd damage is capable of critical strikes, and can be partially resisted. I have yet to see a full miss, but presumably it will miss, at least, 1% of the time.
So I took it with me to Mount Hyjal, just to see what it does on a raid wide level.
From the first trash pull to Rage Winterchill getting the smackdown, the Pendant procced 13 times, for a total of 5,616 damage, averaging 395 damage per hit. The highest crit I saw was 469 damage, although it displayed only 7% critical strike rate.
Which is easily explained by the fact it only fired 13 times. But still. Seems kinda low. Not like my fireball here, which displayed a 42% crit rate for the night…
The Arcane Bolt never missed (again we only have 13 bolts to go on), but we did see one partial resist.
This Pendant definitely seems worth it. I’m going to pay Dr. Boom a visit sooner or later to get a lot more data on this little Pendant of mine.
And if you happen to have some WWS data of this, I’d definitely like to know how it performs.
Essentially, I’m trying to decide if it would be better to go with the Shattered Sun Pendant, or the Hellfire Encased Pendant off the trash in Mount Hyjal… 51 fire damage is very tasty…
