With the change to Heart Strike (- ~8.5% dmg) and blood boil (+388% base -8.2% AP Scaling), would it be more advantageous for us to use blood boil on almost any encounter, even including the increased damage from having FF and BP up?
As you can see, the Blood Boil AP scaling has been nerfed almost as much as our Heart Strike damage. Thus the proportion stays roughly the same (at high vengenace levels, +388% basedmg wont make a huge difference).
or short version: If you've been using BB > HS at a certain vengeance level/target number, its gonna be the same now.
The only thing that may change is when you're tanking 3-4 NPCs with low vengeance levels. I'd say BB>HS with 3 and 4 targets, really depends on the vengeance and you may have to check it infight. In the end you still need very high vengeance levels for BB to be superior to HS in a singletarget situation.
