Oh, this is fantastic! I always wondered how do they look like. And the more content the better!

By the way, a lore question: are Solael, Bysmiel and Dreeg actively malevolent? I've always thought they're dark but not necessarily evil.

Doombolt) will have up to a 100% chance to trigger a Celestial Power where previously they may have had the same 15% chance of activating as a spammable ability.
This is pretty cool, but will it also work with skills that have cooldown changing transmuters? (Like Blade Arc with Clean Sweep)

It looked like a demonic tiger to me

I'm sure they're like every other god in existence: they serve their own ends and you just hope they're not too far away from yours.

Yes, it will work with clean sweep.

Overall, a huge boon to builds based around cooldown abilities.
Will damage also be scaled in order to compensate for the lower spammability of these abilities?

Alright, that's nice! It's a totally dynamic new system for Devotion then.

2 questions:

1) Will we know what the %chance is or will it just read "a chance to activate" and we'll have to figure out the chance on our own?

2) Is there any plan to allow us to link devotion skills to base autoattack? Not having that option gives Savagery/FireStrike builds a huge advantage with proc rates.

1. The proc chance will dynamically update on the tooltip based on the skill it is bound to.

2. It's been said that this option will not be added in the past.
