Question about Rake

Postby Waynebrady » April 26th, 2014, 10:31 am

I've noticed that if your opponent has a DoT up on you and you cast rake, subsequently the DoT will tick & it will remove the rake from your opponent.

Is this as intended? It says next "attack" not an attack that was already completed (aka a DoT).

Not sure if that is how it's intended, but that's how it is with rake. Only affects the first hit of multi-hit abilities like swarm and flurry too.

For some DoTs in some contexts, the DoT tick is considered a separate attack from the actual application.

The initial application should be considered the "next attack" but not a random small DoT tick...

That becomes more of a preference/design decision. Personally I like it affecting DoT's. Makes things like haunt more mitigatable. It also helps when the DoT portion is a different attack type than the application hit. I may be weak against the DoT and want to reduce that instead. For example, as a mechanical, I would be more worried about the DoT portion of Poison Fang which is elemental damage than I am the application which is Beast damage. Not that a mechanical has Rake, but as a quick example.
