What's up with the Heroic Opportunity?

    Hi,

    I've just rolled a Necro and I'm having trouble believing that Heroic Opportunitys aren't broken, at least 2/3 of the time I have to press Soul Rot twice, it REALLY slows things down having to wait for it to recharge!
    Do we get more/better choices at higher levels? I'm only level 12 now.
    And when the second Spell isn't Soul Rot one of the choices is Undead Knight, WHAT? Couldn't they have picked something that didn't involve dismissing our pet in the middle of a fight??????
    OK, that one's not such a big deal, I can always chose Pandemic instead (except when it's Soul Rot * 2 of course) by why on earth put Undead Knight in there at all?

    At 12 you still miss a lot of spells (lifetap for ex.) so it gets better later on (but by then HO doesn't do enough to be worth it, just macro it to Soulrot for "free" dmg and keep your normal rotation)
    That said, you should use Soulrot as much as you can anyway and as the recast on it is low enough to finish a HO even at low level, nothing is broken (except maybe for the pet choice but even that is not broken per se, just not useful/detrimental in most situations)

    Ah HO's... the debate of debates.
    Like he said, I dont use HO's on any of my Mages. The damage you gain trying to achieve it just doesnt outweigh messing up your rotation. Priests and Fighters, sure use it. Mages, dont even bother. Especially Necros. Take it off your hotbar. Or macro it to Soulrot. Just dont waste time pressing it and taking away from your rotation.

    Thanks.
    I'll try Rooting and Nuking then, and do a search for info on using the pet.
