Talk:Oppressive Gaze

I do not see the reason why this spell has been nerfed. It already costs 15 energy. It needs the weakness condition to trigger. And most importantly, adjacent foes only. Why has this been nerfed? Be it either PvE (Jotun Necros use Enfeebling Blood + Oppressive Gaze, stealing a lot of health in HM) or a PvP bloodspike, the solution is rather simple: Step a bit aside, and you are no longer adjacent. Problem solved. And this guy just had to use 15+x(5,10) energy to get some 100 damage, 50 of them lifesteal. --Longasc 10:12, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

...bspike? -Auron 10:16, 9 November 2007 (UTC)
BSpike isn't that powerful. They're all soft targets, they can not split in GvG or HA to run anything (at least not split well enough to resist any team that knows what it's doing). Either remove the Weakness requirement or the 50% Health requirement. That's just too many hoops for some Life Stealing. RitualDoll 06:43, 12 November 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, it's even more conditional than Discord now. 20:27, 12 November 2007 (UTC)

yeah weakness+50%hp... if foe is 50% most likely one will continue using the same skills that made the first dmg. weakness+50% you might aswell name the skill Oppressive Gaze don't use it...Spaghetti 11:39, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

lawlrofllollll lame loll gay lolllll roflberrynoobcake skill gay skill rofllollll lmao aahahahahahahahahahaahahahahahahahahahaahahahaha..... but seriously.. this skill is a joke--Arrythmia 16:10, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

they once nerfed it to prevent spiking. It's a bit weak now, but it's still a nice skill. I mean, besides the possiblity of dealing about 100 armor ignoring damage, about the half of them is aoe lifesteal without target cap. —ZerphatalkThe Improver 16:15, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

lmao this skill is like teh ghey, cus u know how easy it is to get all your foes down to 50% health and weakness on all of them, while having them in adjacent,its like"zomg watch out for the bloodspike, gawd knowz that tat ele with 19 fire magic cant do as much dmg" yeah cuz u know.. everyone is afraid of a blood spike.. oh wait sins can do like 300 dmg in half the time with half the amount of energy used, rofflelawl. oh wait lawl, what about air magic ele spikers that do like 300 dmg in 4 secs with armor pen. or what about nukers who do 400 dmg in 3 secs, i really dont understand the nerf still"zomg im too much of a noob to stand out of adjacent range of my teammates" lmao--13ThirtySeven 20:34, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

You forget something. Assassins deal Physical damage, Eles deal Elemental damage,
B-Spike doesn't deals damage, it's just -poof- and your health is gone, no prots, no armor, nothing in the world to protect you,
that's why ppl are 'afraid' of B-Spike. - (BlackHoleSun 14:19, 19 March 2009 (UTC))

related to Feast of Corruption?[edit]

i mean they both deal damage to target foe and surrounding foes and they steal health conditionally 19:09, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Sound similar enough. Added it to related skills. --Boogy User Boogy Sig.jpg (Talk/Contributions) 01:07, 2 August 2008 (UTC)


I'm pretty sure this is a (heavily shooped) picture of Brant Fitzgerald, the same angry person in Gaze of Contempt. Can anyone confirm? You can see it better on the hi-res icons, if it helps any. --Jette User Jette awesome.png 19:27, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Except that this guy has hair. No offense. --syn // talk talk page 04:28, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
That's not hair, that's an ink blot combined with judicious use of the smudge tool. --Jette User Jette awesome.png 04:32, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

Kick Feast, add Virulence[edit]

Since the update... The preceding unsigned comment was added by Pastafarian Hunter (talk • contribs) at 13:42, 26 February 2010 (UTC).

Feb. 2010 Skill Update[edit]

Hm, a little AoE, a little direct damage, a littel degen, and a little debuff. Would make good filler for a blood build if you have a feeder condition. 20:59, 27 February 2010 (UTC)

If you use Barbed Signet, the bleeding from Barbed applies prior to OG triggering, thus, the additional conditions are applied 100% of the time when Barbed is up.--Dahlia 06:25, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, with Barbed Signet, this skill is terrific. Along with the ~30 damage, it gives -7 health degen and 33% less damage output on foes, and its cheap as well. This would be good on any blood build, not just for filler.--Signachur 07:23, 2 March 2010 (UTC)
No adjacent foes get the conditions from this skill when it's used with Barbed Signet alone. Just the target. Kyubiko 18:38, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
That is an elite version of Virulence... Elephant 17:55, 2 March 2010 (UTC)
^ pretty much how it's being used. Karate User Karate Jesus KJ for sig.png Jesus 18:03, 2 March 2010 (UTC)
66% less attack damage and -1 to all attributes* This is over-the-top... Virulence was already rarely used. -~=Ϛρѧякγ User Sparky, the Tainted charr sig.PNG (τѧιк) 02:09, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
Kind of sad how this beats virulence now, but virulence was always weak for PvE. Necromas 03:56, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

Still shit[edit]

Poor dmg and 2 shitty conds. 09:45, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

Well, it's an AoE version of Virulence without disease. So why we can see Me/N in every gvg.--TeaCat._. User RedTeaCat TeaCat.jpg 12:04, 16 April 2010 (UTC)
I used to toss this on my blood Livia for the weakness, poison being a bonus. Bar compression wins. I would still be using it if I didnt run Hayda with that weakness chant. Justice 06:16, 11 August 2010 (UTC)
