PTR: 7.1.5 Notes (Nov 29)

In Legion by Babylonius

Since there are always questions about this, I’ll do a quick post about the changes. Obviously, this may or may not be the extent of the changes

  • Cenedril, Reflector of Hatred The amount of damage that Touch of Karma can redirect is increased by 150% of your maximum health. Touch of Karma deals 300% increased damage.

Overall a great change, makes it easier to get the most damage out of it, you take 50% of your health, and do 200% of your health to the target. Absorbing 50% of your health is very easy to do in all content without doing anything risky. It cuts down on the incredible strength of the legendary, while making it much easier to use. It removes it as a bonus to survivability, but makes it significantly easier to hit the maximum damage possible.

  • The Emperor’s Capacitor Chi spenders increase the damage of your next CJL by 100%. Stacks up to 25 times.250% and reduce its cost by 5%, stacking up to 20 times.

This is a pretty incredible improvement for this legendary. Currently CJL does 70% Attack Power over 4s, this legendary allows you to stack up a buff (assuming its a buff) that will increase that by 5000%, up to 3500% of your AP, which is more than the base damage of Fists of Fury plus Crosswinds, which amounts to 3325% AP, before relics, traits, etc. This is also for free if at maximum stacks, so it acts as 4s of energy regen that does a ton of damage. In addition, because its nature damage, it ignores armor. It also can be cast from range if needed. It does interrupt autoattacks, but thats worth the huge damage it will bring.

From Pandanaconda:

The Emperor’s Capacitor‘s cooldown is looking to be around 1 minute roughly, maybe a bit less; 50 seconds ish with Katsuo’s Eclipse. It’s damage is Nature so despite traits it may be significantly more than a Fists of Fury. It could be responsible for 10% ish of your damage and help with boss uptime; that’s before we abuse it with Serenity‘s damage increase or whatnot.”

Its currently unclear how these changes will effect the balance of the legendaries between each other, or overall WW balance, but in my opinion, they are two positive overall changes, and I expect some more to come before 7.1.5 or 7.2 are released to live.
