Question about Time Strike vs other procs on tantrum bow

Post by Fumbles on Sat Feb 22, 2014 7:21 am

My current tantrum bow has 18%ctc level 10 knife throw on striking. I rolled a new tantrum bow with 8%ctc level 4 time strike on striking. Afaik, knife throw is 1/1 weapon dmg and time strike is 3/2 weapon dmg. I'm confused about how time strike works. Time Strike is defined as "melee attack that hits again after a short delay" so does the initial strike from tantrum or any other strike/attack count as the first hit from time strike, or does time strike hit twice on its own once procced. If this is the case, than time strike would basically be 8% chance to deal 3x weapon dmg(because 3/2 x2) as opposed to knife throws 18% chance to deal 1x weapon damage.

Or maybe I'm wrong and the initial strike is the first half of time strike and I'm an idiot, the only problem is that time strike is defined as a melee attack, and tantrum isn't melee, nor are some other on strike procs. If someone could clarify this, I would greatly appreciate it.

Time strike the skill is a melee attack. You swing your weapon (the melee attack) which then causes a missile to appear which does 3/2 damage after a delay. As a proc it simply triggers the missile since a proc obviously can't force you to swing your weapon. In your case it would probably be better to go for the knife throw proc as the damage is immediate and the proc chance is so much higher.

Time strike has next delay of 4 frames, knife/arrow/javelin/swag throw 0. That means time strike decreases tantrum and knife throw effectivity because of disabling any damage what could come from tantrum flower or procced knife, no matter of 3/2 modifier. Deffinitely go for knife throw proc if ur lucky.
