The proc of this staff is a Pet Valkyr, it lasts 30 seconds. It has no internal cooldown and some people have seen from 4-6 of them proc'ing off hurricane spam on trash. It can proc on any form of damage spell. Hell, it can even proc off a rip tick as a feral.
The pet itself, is a neat little thing to stare at. Sometimes it picks up the colors of the area around it, so it can color change. But there is an issue with this proc. These things die. I mean, DIE FAST.
Our treants got buffed to resist alot of the AE damage that goes out, so they last longer. These things spawn with 12k health, die in 1 ae. They die all the time for Lady DeathWhisper, standing in the Death and Decay. They die to Bone Storm and ColdFlame. Gunship, I am in a cannon so I never to get to use it. But when I am pushed out, I'll Ae the adds on the boat, It will proc and as soon as I get back in the cannon, it stops its attack. What a waste.
Saurfang it never seems to proc but when it does it can die from being to close to me during Blood Nova. These things get destroyed during Festergut and Rotface. The professor as well.
What can improve on this weapon?
The main thing that needs to be improved is giving these pets that spawn a Resistance to AE. They die way to fast. Blizzard however already buffed their damage.
The val’kyrs spawned by the Nibelung staff will now always hit with their smite attack and their damage has been increased for both normal and heroic versions of the staff.
Would you use it?
Even though I lose a bit of stats, yeah..I'd use it for the proc. However with them constantly dieing so fast, it becomes the issue of if their up-time is worth the stat loss.
Anything else to add Mrs. Foofy?
No, not really, just would like to see these things last longer. I don't care for a pet bar like some people are asking for. Just a little more alive-time would fix alot of the problems.
