- more pet damage (expertise training significantly increases cat bleeds, which is more reliable now in application)
- more mobility
- works well for roaming
- pet is a MAJOR inconvenience to stragglers/runners with SoH increased speed
- bunker that does a lot of dmg. very difficult to lose a 1v1, even to shatter-tards
- more healing
- more dodging (lowered LR CD)
right now, stacking bleeds is impressive with improved SB speed and cats landing hits reliably. on an immobilized target you get stack 20-25 bleeds in like 3 seconds (ideal situatioN). if you flank someone, and open up on them with all these bleeds, they will melt in seconds, or at least be forced to pop all their CD's. thing is, you can do it on a short CD. this is indeed a “condition assassin.” with all the +healing and 2100 toughness, dagger evade, and sigils of energy, it's pretty damn tanky too.
lynx on his own can give you 10-12 bleed stacks in 2 seconds, which does about 30% less dmg than your conditions, but it’s still huge.switched torch to dagger. SoH for high mobility for u and pet, in addition to survivability. you can actually kite like a champ now and your pet will land almost every hit. runes can be of Lich, Undead, or Thief. i felt like i needed more vitality so i went with Lich.
