Army of Dead - Cool down reduced

A quick update thanks to MMO-Champion. Apparently in the next patch the cool down on Army of the Dead will be reduced from 20 minutes down to 10 minutes, however the damage from your summoned ghouls will be reduced by 50%. Not sure how this will affect the soloing DK. AotD is a nice damage mitigation ability, plus it gives you some time to get some quick heals in, but I also used the damage output from the ghouls to help me DPS bosses that I needed to down quickly. Most recently this was used to help me down Nazan (the dragon mount in Hellfire Ramparts). I need the added DPS because Nazan is immune to diseases, thus preventing my Death Strike from healing me. It will be interesting to see how this change affects that.

At this time I'm guessing it will only benefit my soloing attempts but I'll have to wait and find out after the patch.

  1. A buff for soloists (possibly twice in one very long fight, more so for unholy DKs) but a nerf to burst.
