View Full Version : Scourge Choker - love it or hate it?

I've been fooling around with mine and I gotta admit I'm noticing the drawbacks more than the benefits.

Even when you're getting hit you invariably get the melee slowdown at some point, and it's plain painful.

How many people out there love their Scourge Choker?

How many wear it ALL the time?

ive neaver used it so i dont know but how slow is it if your hasted do you knotice it? would the 20% haste from madstone boots counter it or the 10% haste on some armour fix it? does the slow keep going if geting hit restarts it or is it on a timer?

I found it awesome for PvP, reaver, and some boss fights. For extended fighting through quests and such, the cooldown timing is often damaging.

is the fatigue from blood rage removable via lesser restore potions like barbarian rage?

I found nothing that removed the melee slowdown from the choker. It has it's own type. I think it's just a direct cut of 50% of your swing speed. Though I think it still takes haste into account... but you're still swinging slower than base speed even hasted.

The 10 second 50% attack speed slowdown is painfully slow, very noticeable, and lesser restore pots have no effect.

Burning a Ftr's Haste Boost IV and a Haste pot get you to something like a *normal* attack speed.
