Hi all,

Just want to know if the advantage on Bindings of Atatron (gain health while depleting their energy) ever gets triggered if the BoA advantage gets triggered for Eldritch Bolts?

To clarify:
You've bought the BoA advantage.
You've bought the Eldritch Bolts advantage that has a chance to cast BoA when using EB.
Does the EB advantage act as if you were casting your own BoA with it's advantage?

Cheers,

FoM

The advantage to BoA only fires while you are channeling the hold. Once you finish channeling, the drain/heal stops ticking, so I'm inclined to believe that it will have no effect on the hold from the energy builder. Mostly since they're different abilities, and the hold on the EB is instant when it procs.

Like all things, likely best to test it in the powerhouse, but I wouldn't expect much.

Thanks for replying Munen. Makes sense. Do you think it should be made to work the way I hypothesised? Like a small debuff that lasts as long as the maintain would have? This'd create great synergy among builds if other skills connected in this way.
