In this week’s Shadowlands build, Death's Due
has been updated and its buff and debuffs are no longer applied each time it deals damage.
Now your Heart Strike
, Scourge Strike
, and Obliterate
apply Death's Due
to the target, reducing the damage they deal to you and increasing your Strength by the same amount. The duration of the buff/debuff has also been reduced and the maximum amount of stacks has been reduced to 8.
In addition to these changes, Death's Due
has a unique bonus for Frost that allows their Obliterate
to hit 1 additional target while they stay within Death's Due
These changes to Death's Due
are aimed at making it a little more rotation-impactful, rather than just a passive bonus when casting it, while making it more balanced against the other Covenant choices.
