Dot's disappering

For the things that don't fit elsewhere!

Has anyone noticed our dots just disappering off the targets. I ran lfr the other day and was watching mine and a another shadow priests dots just disappering from mobs and bosses even with more then half the duration remaining. Now i know i wasnt hitting mind spike with out the fdcl proc and i didnt think to ask the other priest what he/she was doing, but could either fdcl be broken and not working all the time or can our dots all be linked to where i dot and you spike and they disapper. I also havent noticed it in heroics or beating on the dummy.

This has happened for me as well. I never hardcast Mind Spike, but sometimes, after a FDCL proc, my dots disappear. My guess is, sometimes the game doesn't register FDLC proc as intended.

If you have a DTR, then a FDCL Mind Spike can get proc'd. If you don't currently have another stack of the FDCL buff, the DTR proc'd Mind Spike will act as a normal Mind Spike and eat your dots.

If you don't have a DTR...then well, I have no idea WHAT is going on. Haha.

The proc is disabled at 86 I think I remember reading? It won't be an issue for very much longer. Just wait until you have banked two MS procs and use it if you want to stick with FDCL. The DTR MS proc will consume the second charge if it happens. This way you won't lose your DoTs....or just use Mindbender for the next two weeks. Either way, it's not going to matter much in terms of DPS until MoP.

Something like that...I think that the proc chance drops by 1% per level after 85 until it is 0% at 90? It might be your target's level that determines what proc % drop occurs.

I think that might be what happened in my case but I'm not 100% sure. More testing required.
