dots and hots combine additively. if you had a 1000 point per turn DoT (say a nice big Epiphany) running and a "Dream's Over" HoT restoring 350 a turn the net damage would be 650. one doesn't cancel the other, they're both running and the damage lost to Nightmare's HoT is very real even if your DoT damage overtakes it.

the most efficient use of the skill is as a finishing move. if the enemy dies from the attack they obviously won't heal anything. i consider this to be a niche usage and unnecessary, even for a shadow build.

+1-1=0 is the definition of canceling out for me.

no, thats just equilibrium. maybe my language wasn't good. my apologies.

if once cancelled the other they would be mutually exclusive, they could not both be present on the same entity at the same time. this isn't the case in Sonny, both effects are active and there damage and healing are combined additively.

There is one other use of nightmare: as a skill to use corruption on. For shadow builds I think thats the main instant damage spell but it needs a shadow debuff active. For times when epiphany runs out this can be usefull (long lasting debuff which is usefull if despelled).

I find Sacrifice extremely useful. As well as being very entertaining, your teammates sometimes survive (occasionally if they have 10k health, more often if they have 14k or so).

And when the Mayor uses Team Sacrifice, you can hit them with sacrifice 3 or 4 times.

And if you're lucky, you'll have one of the mayor's debuffs (don't know which one) that breaks sacrifice horribly!

I was regenerating 350,000 health per turn :D :D :D

I've never needed sacrifice, I don't find it useful at all unless I'm receiving too much damage to handle...which I never have had that happen.

i just wanna say that ightmare is note useless at all if you use shock therapy right after they only recover around 300 hp and not the rest IMO it's pretty good maxed out.

Baron, so easy

first you have to put 2 times traumatize on your action bar
3 shock terapy 1 electric charge, free will

you just have to traumatize him and while he is stunned
you put all on phalanx mode and when baron wake up you use traumatize again and after 2 turns he will wake up but you will be prepared for his atak, then you keep traumatizing him til he has no more focus and starts killing himself :)
