So I was curious about a few things WPoS related and decided to do some quick tests in modded.
Firstly Smite/Empowered Smite. They do indeed work as expected, giving a multiplicative damage increase in effect. All the numbers I got lined up exactly (accounting for rounding) with the smite hit being 20/40% of the damage of the hit that procced it. Not suprising, but you can never be sure things work how the description says, so figured it was worth checking.
Now for what I was REALLY interested in, Shield of Faith end AoE breakpoints. Firstly, it is possible to stagger packmasters with it, but the investment is pretty absurd. 30% power properties, Prayer of Might, AND EP to make it stagger packmasters. Also worth noting is that Opportunist on your weapon does not affect the ult’s stagger strength, unlike eg Slayer Ult, which is affected by Opportunist on the weapon you’re currently holding. Or it just specifically doesn’t affect it while a packmaster has you grabbed, because your weapon is technically away. I dunno exactly, testing that further sounds like a nightmare. I also didn’t test if casting it on someone else used their power properties or yours. I would presume the latter.
The second important packmaster breakpoint makes that first one even more of a meme. For the low price of 2 power properties, or 1 power property + EP, you can guarantee that the dot from the end of Shield of Faith will kill a packmaster on Cata. Pretty handy, genuinely might be worth speccing for.
All testing done in modded realm using creature spawner and show damage mods primarily.
