It's terrible because 75% of the time it will do nothing for your main weapon, and when it does it just makes it inflict a pointless DoT debuff or Confused, which all important enemies resist.
You should probably make him only have 6 phases in the very first fight, since that's basically what that item guarantees anyways.
Bry basically explained exactly what my logic was. Also I didn't want to make it very powerful because you don't even have to equip it for it to take effect, and it's also basically permanent.But what if people WANT to refight full-power Cultist? Having the choice would be nice, no?
Plus, everyone uses a single minion alongside their weapons even if they aren't summoner, right? Wouldn't it be active 50% of the time then? 75% if you're a melee/ranger using the Golden Shower/Betsy's wrath?
