I was wondering how people feel about the Void Knight skill ‘Abyssal Echoes’.
In my personal experience said skill does little to no damage, even with full investment into it.
At first I misunderstood the skill description thinking “Sweet, 50 void damage per second, I can work witht hat.” Turned out it was actually 50 void damage total damage, which would be a little over 8 damage per second against targets with no void protection.
I understand that it might be an additional spell you use in your normal build, since it says “…if they take a hit all the damage from abyssal decay is dealt to them immediately.”
But since I do not see any other skill that would be able to deal an acceptable amount of damage, which could benefit from a little extra burst, I have trouble believing Abyssal Echoes right now is what the devs intented it to be.
Let’s say you find something to use as main skill - considering it has to hit to activate the instant “burst”, with other words a non-dot build. Would you really want to spend a base mana cost of 60 for 50 additional damage? Even if your build scales with Void oder Spell Damage, or both, you won’t get any satisfaction out of the Abyssal Decay damage.
So here is my question again, how do you feel about the Void Knight skill “Abyssal Echoes”?
Did you find a way to utilize said skill?
