Both seem to work effectively, and I’m having a hard time deciding between the two.
If both works in your tests then that´s that you know : P
Personally i tend to grab cleave or other talents that dont rely on killing or stagger because with a few exceptions those talents do not tend to work well in my experience against skaven. Killing them gives almost no THP and they die when you try to stagger them…
My tests don’t even deserve that name
I’m just looking at my health in a match and it seems that it goes up with both talents
You have a point, but I’d still like an expert opinion if somebody has done real tests.
For example, one thing I appreciate of the cleave talent is that it gives you some thp (although very little) even when fighting a boss. Not that it matters too much playing the engineer, but still.
Eh, while i´d assume someone has gone and checked and would know i still think either talent is fine if they generate THP when fighting a horde.
Getting THP from a boss is nice but on engi you´d be truly deep in muck to end up needing to do that.
I’ve just found this: Engineer Temp-Health on Stagger is only 50% effective
I guess, my fellow engineers, this answers my question. For cata, once it’s fixed THP on stagger will probably be the most effective (for the coghammer at least).
