Warrior testing regarding the Impale proc
- It IS modified by 2H talent, death wish, enrage, blood frenzy, rogue hemorrhage, world damage modifiers (stacking effects where applicable).
- It IS NOT affected by impale talent (for crits).
- It can miss, and be absorbed by shields.
- It can't be dodged, blocked, or parried, and is NOT affected by armor.
- It procs from white attacks, instants (that attack with your weapon), extra attacks, and can chainproc itself.
- Impale hit/crit is independent of the attack that caused it to proc, and its damage does not generate rage.
- Crit impale does not proc flurry.
- It looks like approximately 3% proc rate with no internal cooldown. (35 procs out of 1064 attacks = 35/1099 = 3%)
- In PvE it could make up 1-5% of your total raid damage because of the complete armor mitigation.
- In PvP it can provide good burst damage, especially coupled with sword spec, to make even hamstring a deadly weapon.
- Base: 600 Crit: 1200 e.g. 2H + Death Wish = 756 hit / 1512 crit
- 2H + 5% world bonus
- SS + WW + Impale
Paladin testing regarding the Impale proc
