I was thinking using pithakhan might be okay to drain their mana and make them take bleed damage for more consistent less bursty help. I mean I realize it's not optimal but I have yet to experience anything more frustrating than hugalaz procing on or just before a devastate and stealing the satisfaction of the kill.
Pithakhan is only 10% per proc, and the proc rate isn't that good. Two-handed doesn't attack quickly enough for Pithakhan to outpace the mana regeneration they'd get from moss/potash alone, let alone people who have other forms of mana regen too. Seems like you'd get about as much benefit from not putting a rune on your weapon at all.

@Aquil 3-4x more in the combat scene or just in general? I'm thinking specifically people I see fighting.
You guys are missing the most important reason that there are a lot of two handers.
It is that bastardswords and warhammers are cool, and these knights all have centuries of making up to do for the embarrassing rapier era.

And you won't understand the cause of your grief...
...But you'll always follow the voices beneath.
I am not going to say it is perfect or does not need adjustment, because perhaps it does. But 2h Runewardens specially need something like it, I think. Infernals and Paladins have gravehands/piety to keep people more or less in place, but Isaz does not compare to that at all.
I'm not sure what makes Isaz weaker offensively, really. You have to keep up engage, but that seems pretty doable.
The only mandatory downtime I can think of would be within the second before you attack, assuming you don't want to slow yourself at all. otherwise you should be able to completely keep it up, I'd think.
