If you hold the fang in the center of the map, you can earn up to 6 points per tick (which happen about every 5 seconds), so the points add up very quickly when you are holding it in the center of the map. You win a game in 7 or 8 minutes if your team holds the Fang the entire time in the center of the map.
When you hold the Fang, you also take regular damage, which increases over time. You can heal through this for awhile, but eventually the Fang holder will die. You cannot drop the Fang once you pick it up, so it is not a simple matter of dropping it then picking it back up. More then 1 player will have to hold the fang in each match.
Did more Whitefall Steppes before servers went down last night. Sooo sick. Ended up in top 5 healing, damage, and damage taken. I hope to improve upon DPS before 39 though, I usually depend on BoD crits and Vex. I've got myself some macros that should help that, though. =D
