Confused about level 100 demonology talents.

3 posts in this topic

Hi, This is about Ice Veins Demonology 100 talent discussion. I'm greatly confused about this, since I can't see any synergy between Ascendance and Soul Conduit. If anyone could clarify this. I've already thought about it having something to do with summons. But it has to do with DE so yeah. Simply can't see the synergy with theese two together.

Copied right from the 100 talent discussion from Icy Veins:

Soul Conduit Icon Soul Conduit is the best option for single target and light cleave and should be your go-to for most encounters. This talent is only worthwhile if using Thal'kiel's Ascendance Icon Thal'kiel's Ascendance.

TKA is the newest golden so the real decider is if your arty weapon has that ability yet.

So with SC you get shards refunded hence you will spend more shards. Spending more shards means more pets out in total which means (in theory) more TKA damage and that is where the synergy comes from. 

There's also an argument to be made if you summon more pets then you use DE more increasing the chance of a TKA. However, this is very minor and especially if you play with Power Trip as you will be casting DE instead of SB the majority of the time anyhow.

There is a very strong synergy between Soul Conduit, Thal'kiel's Ascendance, and the Shadowy Inspiration / Power Trip build for single target. You generate soul shards more quickly than the other Demonology builds, provided there is only one target, so it's easy to get to the point where you have 10+ demons and then you just spam Demonic Empowerment until a few of them despawn.

With the alternate talents like Demonic Calling, Hand of Doom, Grimoire of Synergy - which all make for a more forgiving and flexible playstyle, if you don't want to constantly respec - Soul Conduit becomes more of a situational thing. On heavy cleave for example, you can get a lot of shard return from Soul Conduit if you are able to spam Demonwrath and Hand of Gul'dan, but you can also get a lot of burst damage with Darkglare, so it's questionable whether that's a gain.

      I usually sim my characters to get the best possible results. I enjoy the process quite a lot and since I reached 120, I wanted to find out the best build of the spec. (Note, I didn't want to find out what to play, but rather how my own build fares in comarison.) I rarely mind a 1-2% difference. If it goes above 2%, I really mind a change. What this thread is about is mainly to bring something in the attention of those who help making the class guides, especially the talent choices. To my surprise, I was awed to find out that certain talents outperform previous "Standard" choices in the endgame, probably due to the stat squish.

      The Frost go-to build (top dps) would probably be along the lines of <Icy Talons / Cold Heart - Runic Attenuation - Frozen Pulse - Gathering Storm - Breath of Sindragosa>. What I found out primarily was that after the removal of legendaries, Cold Heart severely underperforms at most given situations resulting in a major dps drop due to the low mastery. Gathering Storm also suffers from the same problem and most of the times, Frostwyrm's Fury is better overall. The biggest surprise of them all, however, was that Inexorable Assault overperforms quite a lot, and is the first reason why I made the topic. I then started simming with the above in mind and I came across a build that some would not consider on par with top dog builds around the meta, which is the use of Horn of Winter which overperforms both its other two options when using the Breath build. Talent Sim can be seen here. Another intresting thing, which I loved, was that the 2nd best build uses Obliteration as a lvl 100 talent and no other build surpassed it (Other than the first one, obviously). So, I encourage frost players out there to give their other, less common talents a try. To the class guide author(s), I believe that the two "underdog" talents will earn their spot in the class guides.

      Thank you for your time reading this.
