Poisons scale with Spellpower?

Posted (edited)

the classification here is the weird part. most anything in wow is referred to a spell or a action. a frost bolt or a heroic strike. Rogues break this mold abit, and add in poison a different circumstance all around. no spell dmg gear would effect it,  because technically its not a spell it's a poison. Cant call it a debuff like a warlocks because a locks dots are effected by warlock talents and gear. only poison have is a higher poison rank in 1.12. I think in later versions of the game certain things and gear start effecting poisons dmg output, but in 1.12 its pretty straight forward, and equates to roughly 5% of your total dps if the correct poisons are used. playing a rogue is pretty straight forward and simple, however the concept and theroycraft of a rogue is one of, if not the deepest of all classes.

It was a common bug on many vanilla priv servers that poisons scaled with spell power. It was due to the reason that the poisons were treated like normal spells.

 

This led to f.e. Instant poison getting a 43% nature/spell power scaling. This resulted in absurd amounts of dmg and burst when a rogue went for the 2 poison effecting talents, got the BWL trinket and equipped spell power in every slot.

 

Poisons started scaling with attack power in later expansions yet their didn't scale with spell power during vanilla.

 

Though it's a pretty cool play style . I had a spellpower rogue on another project, but at some point they fixed it .
