Backup Devices Information

While these things have been greatly nerfed from their past versions, some information might be useful for players to decide if they can still make use of the devices as-is. I ran a few of them on pts on a naked level 40 character to compare combat log results. Some of the attacks are aoe, but I only consider the damage on dummy for totals. Damage will vary depending on crits, but these combat log examples still serve to show what each backup will do. Retro variants share device cooldown with their normal counterparts, and seem identical. Backups do not seem to be affected by player auras. I tested with support AoED and AoPM. In both cases neither the buff icon appeared on the backup, nor was there any appreciable change in damage.

Provides AoED aura to player (maybe allies too?). Skarn's can apply bane, which can apply poison. 1 stack of poison was 21 (26) Toxic, and 2 stacks was 43 (51). I removed the poison lines to declutter the log. In this example there was a total of 450 toxic damage from poison. Bane can also apply clinging flames for 39 (46) fire damage. The healing rune from pillar of poz despawns with witchcraft, so it isn't out for very long. Skarn's and Poz are aoe, Eldritch Blast is single target.

    Thank you for this information.

    That's a decent amount of damage coming from a device pet.

    Still sucks for them to have a 5 minute cooldown, which isn't affected by cooldown gear/abilities.​​
