Should finally give druids an option for tanking. More threat (level 62 green or level 60 blue idols) or more avoidance.
Edit: Will that +agi from the proc stack with the Badge of Tenacity?
If the mangle doesn't hit, Will you still get the buff?
If this works in cat form it kicks some arse... Finally time for our idols to shine:-) This will give you dodge like everybody said up here but have you thought about the extra crit?! If it has 85% proc chance than I could keep it up in cat all the time which means an extra 65+ AP and a whole latta crit (Don't have the formula althou I'm sure somebody here has it:-)
Done Mech today will do it again tomorrow! Thank you Blizzard!!!
Tested on the PTR:
This relic does work in both Cat and Bear forms, with a very very high chance to proc on a Mangle hit.
I never saw the buff refresh itself while it was up, leading me to believe it currently has a 10-second hidden cooldown. This may or may not be intentional, since it is still in testing.
Does the buff from this item persist even if the Idol is unequipped after the buff is applied?
You can switch Weapons/Shield and anything that goes in your range slot(Idols included). Do note though, that switching your idols resets your swing timer.
It also triggers a global cooldown so I would be cautious about switching too often.
Actually the math to calculate uptime on hidden cooldowns is pretty easy. Just calculate the average time it takes to proc when not on cooldown, add the cooldown time, and you get the time between procs. Divide the duration by the time between procs for up time.
Since the 10 second cooldown is most likely correct, we'll assume that is the cooldown. Now the time to proc: In bear form, assuming you mangle every six seconds consistently there will be 2 seconds of dead time after the duration expires with no chance to proc. Your chance to proc with each mangle is 85% (the proc chance) times your chance to hit with the mangle (h). The average number of mangles to get a proc, then, is the reciprocal of this - 1 / 0.85h. Since the first mangle happens 2 seconds after the ability expires and each successive one happens 6 seconds after that, the time it takes to make this many mangles is (1 / 0.85h - 1) * 6 + 2, or 6 / 0.85h - 4. The time between procs, then, is that plus 10 seconds: 6 / 0.85h + 6. The up time is the duration divided by that: 10 / (6 / 0.85h +6). Substitute in your hit rating and get your up time.
Of course if you don't mangle every six seconds on the dot (because of time outs in the fight and whatnot) the up time will change, but if there is consistency to how often you mangle, the caculations aren't hard to do,.
Why not just use Idol of Brutality (
) at the start to gain aggo later on into the fight switch idol to get more dodge.
My goodness, so... many... idols... AAHHH
I gotta find a use for each and every one.
Will this one beat Everbloom Idol for PvP?
Dodge and Crit chance sound more promising than extra damage when im behind the target...
While tanking, you could combine the proc with Badge of Tenacity for some even more dodge.
don't forget shred also costs 2 talent points to drop the energy cost down to 42. So you get great damage every once in awhile for 42 energy AND 2 talent points. Once again, if one is solely playing pvp (assume that this player is stubborn and will not respec to resto) why not just get Idol of terror, spend the two talent points elsewhere and stop using shred? Maybe I'm being redundant... is not spending those 2 talent points to lower the cost of shred crazy?
The proc rate here may be listed on Wowhead as 85%, but I measured the actual proc rate for Mangle (Bear) to be 50%. That's still often enough for tanking to make this a great idol. If you Mangle every 6 seconds and the buff lasts 10 seconds, on average you'll have the buff 80% of the time. It can be streaky though; the damage you take will be uneven.
I measured by staying in level 70 bear form and attacking level 65-66 ogres in Nagrand. 80 Mangles yielded 38 Primal Instinct procs. To avoid cooldown issues I only used Mangle once on each mob, about once every 20-30 seconds. The cooldown is definitely shorter than 30 seconds; I saw it proc twice in 25 seconds several times.
(These comments are from 2.3, not 2.3.2)
Can anyone/has anyone confirmed the AP boost upon the idol proc'ing while in cat form?
If i'm not mistaken the 65 agi should yield 65 AP, 4.4% dodge (1.42% avoidance), 2.6% crit in CAT and in BEAR should exchange the AP for 364 (ish) armor
Clearly one of; if not THE, best option for tanking idols.
The procc from this idol is worth 2.68% crit and 74 attack power for a feral druid in cat form with 3/3 Survival of the Fittest and 5/5 Heart of the Wild.
This thing procs well over 50% of the time. Other boards report 70-80%. It goes off so often that cat form pretty much always has it on, tanking the majority of the time. The only real thing to mind is that once it goes off, it will not reset it's timer. Any mangles done during the 10 seconds won't proc. It can only proc when the buff isn't already on.
With roughly 2.5% crit and over 4% dodge increase with the 65 agility, this thing is insane for tanking or PVP. Best way to spend my first badges and definately the best idol for a tank and PVP, the Everbloom Idol seems to be the favorite for DPS raid druids.
Anyone have any idea what the actual % chance is? It seems to be almost 100% for me. Basically its always on when I'm fighting. Goes off when it runs out.
Despite what the Wowhead tooltip says, this item is not available from G'Eras in Phase 1 of TBC Classic. It will likely be released in Phase 3-4 since it was originally made available in 2.2.
