View Full Version : Paladin weapon enchant choice.

With the two new tanking weapon enchant, Blood Draining and Blade Ward, I'm having a hard time deciding what to chose.

Blood Draining has a nice healing concept to it, but I don't get the full effect of the enchant itself for I have no bleed effects.

Blade Ward, while seems neat with the parry buff, it seems to have a low up time from my readings.

Help? Suggestion? And...which!?

You dont need bleeds to keep blood draining up. Bleeds just stack it quicker and allow you to keep it up easier on movement fights. But as a warrior that does not use any bleeds i have never had a 5 stack fall off on a boss fight...

So...it doesn't cause bleed damage?

The bleed just increases chance to stack?

Yes, it can proc of bleeds and off regular attacks
