Bedevil in its current state has become a liability. If it was possible, I would unlearn trans healing to get rid of it.
Here is my logic in it becoming a liability. In a recent fight against Eloru, Eloru forced me to put bedevil up so that I could no longer use any of my healing abilities allowing her to darkshade stack me and kill me. There is nothing I can do to prevent bedevil being forced as it's usable off balance/EQ (which I was off both when I was forced to use it) Additionally, there is no way to deactivate it once it's activated.
Even if you got rid of the passive defense, the active Bedevil is now stopped by arms broken or paralysis. Additionally, It heals some afflictions before transfering them. In testing today, I bedeviled four afflictions, and none of them transfered to the target. All four were healed. And with the change to healing, I can't just stack heal linus arms/heal linus arms/heal linus paralysis/stand/bedevil. So unless I am one affliction short of being locked, without broken arms does this become useful, and even then, I can count on half of the afflictions being cured off me, so whatever I bedeviled is cured in a single volley as I have no ability to stick additional afflictions on people. Even constantly smite/chasten/disrupt earth and or spirit ontop of wrack, I diagnose before every attack and do not see any afflictions stacking.
Does anyone else have better experiences with it since the patch nerf?
