Gremlin takes EQ (2.75s without nimble/QW) and scales with affs, so truename can't be used till recovering EQ off of gremlin.
Quick interjection here:
Enervate is base 2.9 seconds of equilibrium. It is 15% of max mana, but has a flat component much like sap/leech/etc. It has a higher base percentage due to (1) requiring the target be a lesser percentage than standard mana instakills, and (2) because there's no secondary mana pressure.
It is likely that people with low intelligence stats are struggling far more than people without. I'm ok with that, for the most part. It creates some interesting parity between classes that must spec high int and result in low con, or dex in the case of serpent, etc. Whether that difference is currently too significant is possible, though I'm not convinced as of the moment: I'll make a note to watch more occultist matchups.
All these people saying Enervate can't be hindered are flat wrong lol. Impale/webbed/prone, etc.
That makes it the fastest prep setup in existence.
I don't know, a DWC can get 5 combos off in the time it takes for a Sylvan or an Occie to prep their routes. You could use 3 to prep, and then tumble up on combo 4 (for Sylvan), or maybe come up with something else for Occie. Loop RoF. Time a prone-impale. Enervate is 2.5s (apparently), so that's a pretty luxurious window to work off of.
