Blood Death Coil Healing in Simcraft

4 posts in this topic

Hello! was just wondering how to add death coil healing to my action priority list in Simulationcraft for blood tanking

 

What I've tried:

  • actions+=/death_coil,target=(me),if=buff.lichborne.up&health.pct<70
  • actions+=/death_coil_heal,if=buff.lichborne.up&health.pct<70

I'll just make it a list because I'll add to it if possible

 

I've done a ton of googling for old sim results and old blood death coil healing but have been very unsuccessful in finding an answer for myself.

The first action listed will simulate, but it wont cause healing from death coil

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Lichborne has no interaction with Death Coil. It used to, in MoP. But since 6.0.1 Lichborne gives you 10% leech instead of turning Death Coil into self heal.

You can use Death Coil to place absorbs on other players, with Glyph of Death Coil, if you need to squeeze every bit of healing to another player. But it is generally not worth it, neither as blood, nor as unholy (frost does not have Death Coil).

Well, that isn't true. It may have been removed from the tooltip but lichborne death coil self healing is still very much a thing and more powerful than ever now that death coil has been reduced from 40 RP to 30.

 

Is there a way to make Simcraft simulate this effect? I dont mind if its some hack job way.

My apologies, should have tested it first before blindly trusting the tooltip (and patch notes).

      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.
