Will trade soulcage for self-ress.Any day of the week.
One of the symptoms of an approaching nervous breakdown is the belief that one's work is terribly important

I would definitely trade soulcage for another form of group sustain, like a rezz ability. But not starburst. I would never use that.
From an outside point of view, what is the point of deathsight? I use it to know to grab soulspears or help people get rezzed, also to know when to join a fight (if multiple people on my team die, then no). I dont know what the benefit of seeing a soulcage would be.
Exelethril said:Personally, I don't care much about text-ego and I'm not interested in combat lately, it's just annoying to fight through hands/apathy/frenzy/occie affliction speed then later potentially die trying to kill them a second time while receiving nothing for the first kill.
I have never treated a cage as a death. If I duel, it is to death, not to cage.It is a unique class perk and an awesome ability just the way it is. Blackwind's escape ability in groups has been severely reduced, Soulspear is a lot more reasonable now and I agree on both those changes, but Soulcage is awesome the way it is and can not be paired with BW anymore in any case.That being said I would trade it any day for the ability to rez allies.
If someone is gonna run on soulcage/mog, chances are they wouldn't bother fighting you at all if they didn't have those abilities.
I couldn't care less about a death sight.However, should achieving a killing blow on a caged/mog'd person count as a kill in respect to contracts and bounties?Thats the more prominent question, I'd reason.
If class X learned how to zap, the fact that some members are cool about not abusing it and the fact that some people would not fight you without it are not good defenses for class X being OP or not. I personally think it'd be cool if they were no-def-loss starbursts, where you lose some EXP but don't have to worry about being vulnerable immediately after, and can keep fighting as if you hadn't died if you want.
maybe things like bbt, behead (this already might), aurify, dsb, absolve, cath, and other finishers could just go through cage/mog and allow them to keep the defence, so it primarily becomes a group survival ability.There's at least options to bypass it that way, even if finishers aren't the best method of killing
