However, before heading there, are you on about this Necromancer...

The new version of the Iron Rose phylactery reads as follows...
    Attacking with Siphon Blood has a 100% chance to cast a free Blood Nova.
...but your Necromancer doesn't have the Siphon Blood ability in her build. So, as you're not casting any Siphon Blood, you're not meeting the criteria for the free casts of Blood Nova.

thx for the link...
i changed build to try other builds without the generator
but i assure that with siphon blood as generator it doesn't proc with 100%
Yes it does.
I stumbled upon the same impression yesterday. First I noticed that I had forgotten to equip the Iron Rose, and then it still only worked sometimes - until I've seen that I had an old Iron Rose with only 48% on it.
You need to loot the item anew to get the 100%.

The OP has a new version of the phylactery with the 100% proc rate.

However, the Blood Novas are proc'd as a result of attacks, not just casts. You can test this in town. You can cast Siphon Blood without a target and no Blood Novas occur. The Siphon Blood needs to land on a target for the Blood Novas to proc.
I haven't tested this on live yet but on the PTR, after the last update and reset, the proc rate of Blood Nova felt much lower than 100%. Like it was closer to 50%. Several other people reported similar observations. The proc rate was inconsistent.

The bug might be real.
It seems it has some delay before 1st proc - about 1/2 second. So short click never procs blood nova, you must press and hold.
