does force lightning count as periodic damage?

(i have to respec my assassin lv 46, didnt play him for a year. Was full darkness tree, but thinking about deception with the 11 points into darkness because of that force speed thing for PvP of course)

Darkness/Madness also seems good i get that now. Have to try that too.

Channeled is not periodic, but direct damage, for all intents and purposes.

two tanks pvping.. well, open a can of energy drink and find out... be prepared for atleast 1,5minute fight.
sin has healing, jugg has more CD and reflect. if we assume no accuracy many hits will miss...
make that 2.5 minute...

imo jugg has more chances... whole fight sins/shadows dps will be cut in half while juggs dps will be more or less constant

pvp tanking is not about killing tho, so experiment would be waste of time..

tried to kill the same guy with dps gear, he pretty much owned me, i never took more than 1/4 of his health because every crit he does, he heals..

Tanks do not heal themselves when critting. They have other ways.

you tried tank spec with dps gear or a guy used tank spec in dps gear?

also, as mentioned, crits don't heal, doesnt work like that.

assassin can have 3 heals when i remember right.

harnessed darkness with 3 stacks (5 x 2% = 10% max-heal)
skilled death field (1% per enemy hit, against 1 it is 1%)
1% periodic damage (in a darkness/madness-spec not countable imo)

so in fact, most healing is from harnessed darkness and if you dont CC him while doing the force lightning, he is able to do that about every 15 secs (approximately)

warzone medpac 35%
normal medpac i am not sure how much.

so there is a lot of healing. i guess its a learn to play issue, or know your foe better. i dont mean that in a bad way. and its also possible that he is just playing great and you just average.
