Value of Dark Pact Versus Improved Lifetap questionable Edit

Hi there,

I just wondered whether it would be worth adding a couple of lines comparing Dark Pact with Improved Lifetap? what do you think?

Threat Edit

My preliminary testing suggests that threat generated by Dark Pact is not connected to the actual mana drained. I tested a few scenarios with my Voidwalker and Blizzard's built-in threat tool. Interestingly, each time I cast Dark Pact, I received a constant amount of threat. This also happened when my VW didn't have any mana left, as well as when I was full on mana. As such, I'm inclined to believe that DP generates a fixed amount of threat. I'm not convinced my testing is entirely correct, especially since there was no third character involved (who knows, perhaps DP reduces threat for the VW, however unlikely that might be). I'm at least confident to say that DP does not follow normal threat rules (i.e. threat of 1 mana gained = threat of 1/2 pt of damage). I couldn't find any helpful user comments on the usual suspects (thottbot, wowhead, allakhazam). A guide on the Warlock Den mentions that it generates threat as expected, which is what I doubt.

Perhaps someone could shed some light on this. For now, I'll leave the article unchanged. --Bfx (talk) 15:31, January 12, 2010 (UTC)
