Default Harmonious Disruption

Some basic testing with this. I have more to do to get a better understanding but initially, some random thoughts spewed out.

While:
* The Harmonious Disruption buff is on you
* And a direct/instant heal lands on you
* While you have an attackable PC or NPC targeted
* And that NPC is in close, melee range

Then:
* 100% of the time, an innate lifetap will fire
* 100% of the time, a medium-range AE Agro no damage will filre
* 33% of the time, Cascading Theft of Defense will fire (as the agro counts as a terror)

The heal cannot come from yourself - taps do not initiate.

This occurs under any situation; whether you are attacking or not, whether you are invis or not.

The range of the life tap is short. Seems to be about 40' - melee distance.

If you are invisible and in range; the lifetap fires, it will drop invis and cast.
If you are invisible and out of range, you just get a "Your target is out of range" message but do not break invis.

The base Rank 1 is 12,479 hp.
- A warrior of Droga's heartbeat is disrupted.
- You have healed Ikrog for 12479 points.
- Your disruption heals you. You have been healed for 12479 points.

It can exceptional for 24,958. But I have never seen it crit.



I am currently using it pretty much full-time. Half the direct heals from any external source get a 12.5k or 25k boost. Seems worth the mana and recast every 5 minutes.

My testing was flawed - it fires 100% if you are in range. In initial test, I was on the ragged edge so half didn't fire.

And as added bonus - the AE Agro counts as a terror - so 1/3rd of the time you also get a Theft of Defense firing on top of the rest.

Seems a no-brainer to keep this up, even though it needs refreshing every 5 minutes (with full SCR).

What, you don't like locking down all adds to destroy you in record time?

Yeah, it is definitely a 'buyer beware' ability. I find it best in groups or older content for easy "I got all this without thinking" aggro.

I've been using it since release and not noticed anything in particular, but a guildie SK claims he can't use it safely..

Would say the new 1hander creates similar amount of ae tho?

Not even close.

Using Harmonious on EoK raids is a deathwish unless there is a lot of healing focused on you.

Runes, even the big ones, are a static value. The AE hate on harmonious procs are a static value + a % value of your current overall hate. The more it procs, the more hate it adds per proc. It can and will get to a point nobody can peel stuff off of you.

Using it on raids makes it so you can't really split tanking duties between multiple knights. I know a couple that use it just because its new and cool and shit but I seriously want to slap them because it makes my job 500% harder trying to perform my tanking duties.

Remember that it's based on the amount of direct heals landing on you.

So if you use it but aren't taking major damage and being healed a ton - no big deal.

But if you are being spam-healed by multiple clerics as you tank a raid named, expect every add (and other named) in the zone to lock onto your arse.

Never used during a raid so this is good to know. When in groups which I am 98% of the time, I have this up and running an no problems with it.
