    Solar Barrage (Solar Flare morph): This morph now grants the Empower buff after every tick of damage, instead of only when you initially cast it.

    Now this is getting interesting :). Also Eclipse seems to do more damage now, I wonder if it could be useful ?

    I reckon still more appropriate for certain PvP usage rather than PvE. Not only is the cost a bit prohibitive, you cannot cast this skill against a cc immune target, so you have to keep swapping targets.

     

    Solar Barrage is interesting, would be interesting to see how to incorporate into a rotation. I’ve tried a few things such as replacing Purifying Light and reducing number of Sweep by 1 per cycle, but the main problem I have is the cast time, where I have a tendency to block cancel the cast and then lose dps as a result; will definitely need a bit more time to work it out.

    Might be difficult to make full use of the Empower on a templar as well.

    DK can reflect damage of Varlariel, Eclipse can do it too ? ^^

    Im think is that Rearming trap worth for Magicka DD?Most magDKs use that,but magplars seem not

     

    Eclipse has a cooldown as It a kind of CC skill

    Rearming trap is definitely worth considering. The minor force buff is always useful, the damage is not bad even without scaling on any of our core stats and from a sustain perspective it’s essentially free, costing stamina rather than magicka.

    Last time I checked it was not worth it. Damage to low and damage inprovement couldn’t compensate the damage loss compared to alternative abilities.

    I found it less powerful than alternative Magicka abilities but actually ended up using it instead of Channeled Focus. The cost being Stamina rather than Magicka made it fit in very well with my particular rotation / sustain level, but different setups may get different value from it.
