    It will probably be better than Primal unrestored weapons but not BiS [correct me if I am wrong] but certainly a half decent weapon set for those who dont want to chase Sun Weapons or restore Primals :)

    I decided to collect my coins but wait to purchase anything until after the new mod hits, this event is an annual one so we will have time to see if a set bonus is put on them after the new mod starts, I am in no hurry

    These weapons have a higher item level and base damage than equivalent rank primal weapons, so they are good for people who don't have access to masterwork weapons. Some of them also have unique appearances which makes them nice for transmutes. Of course, they will be outdated like everything else once the new module drops ... so the question is, do you like their appearance? Or do you want a weapon with a higher base damage for a couple of months?

    I plan on waiting until I get the 12 tokens to buy both weapons and then will decide at that point if they are worth it or not.

    I'm just grinding for a non-pastel Griffon.

    Unless they raise the lvl to 80 on weapons this hole event is down to getting transmute items or griffons, weapon will be obsolete once mod 16 hits live...

    These weapons are the only chance some players have to get weapons better than Primal.

    How are people unable to get primal. I find this impossible to believe.

    I said *better than Primal*.

    Why bother tho? U need the set and that means 2 more CTA' after this one, by that time and all the refining u do etc; New mod comes out and a green junk would be better
  • vendoodvendood Member Posts: 77 Arc User
    I'm just surprised that we are over a month into the CTA Season and on the second event, and Cryptic not only hasn't updated the 2-pc set info, they haven't even answered the question as to whether a set ability will even be added.

    It's weird to put effort into making the effort to host an event, and then put a glaring reminder in the centerpiece of it that "we don't really care to even answer a basic question about the event rewards".

    CTA weapons make sense for support powersharing classes, as a reasonable alternative to expensive masterworks that have % bonus. But fate of powersharing is unknown in the new mod as encounters/dailies/feats will go though complete redesign.

    Also having lv70 weapon as reward will look stupid in few month, as well as having K-team lv70 rewards. So one just need to sit on currency I think.

    from what i hear in game the set bonus is: on crit increase party damage, healing by 1% and damage received by -1% stacking 10 times. My question is: does this stack with others for a total of 50% ? is it party but excluding self ??

    Developers please answer @nitocris83

    im only intrigued by the offhand, does the double refinement count only for the weapon itself or all items? if its all items then its way worth getting just for the double refinement bonus on all your stuff. but i havent found an answer yet as to how it works. i like the griffin, and will get it, unless the refine bonus is on all items

    When they do a twitch session and say collections tab (the main source of info re important new gear at higher levels than green) is a pain in the hamster for them, you know what kind of thinking is floating over there.

    it... kinda depends.

    if you can't afford mc weaps, then the mighty set might be preferable for soloing, given that you don't need other people present to stack the bonus to the full 10%.

    in party content... mc will be preferable because someone else in the party probably has mc weaps ( or in later party content, the entire party ).

    once mod 16 hits, it's... questionable, because it seems like they'll be reducing how hard enemies hit. which means the primal set bonus is probably going to proc less often ( and indeed, may primarily proc from *heals* rather than damage. )

    basically it's going to come down to what content you're doing and where your crit stats are, because if, despite the reduced crit, you can crit frequently enough to stack that bonus, they will trump primal or exalted primal. if you *cannot* crit frequently enough to stack the bonus, or you have low enough defences to routinely get hit enough in one go to proc the primal set bonus, or have a healer healing you enough, often enough, to keep the primal bonus up, then primal would be preferable.

    for some people they'll be worth using. for others, they won't. they're probably a solid option for alts, though, cos most people won't be thinking about putting mc weaps on their alts while they're working on their main.

    - sure beats the EE weapons I'm running around with

    Seriously? If you didn't know. Goto Neverember, get "Mysterious Stranger?" (I think) quest. Goto Barovia, get a whole bunch of free gear. Level 70. 450 rating.

    Or, do a whole bunch of Demogorgan or Tiamat, where you can easily be carried and earn Seals of the Brave. 750 seals gives you a Primal Mainhand or Offhand, which is BIS, or close to it. Hell you can just do a bunch of Demonic Encounters for those Seals.

    Frankly you are better off just going on the AD market and buying weapons being dropped in Chult as the weapons bonuses are better. As far as gear, buy your four pieces on the AD market being dropped in Barovia and fill in the gaps with the free stuff from the intro to that campaign, you will also get a bunch of Rank 8 enchants. There are four different pieces; Beast, Ghost, Innocent, etc, mix match for what stats you need.

    But you should also be doing your daily random AD runs to get seals of the brave and exchanging those with the vendor for armor and rings.

    i thought the event was fun getting all that companion gear for all my characters' companions i wanna gear up and run with. and the gold intake put me back up closer to what i had saved before the new profession system. i figure the new mod will be out before i have enough tokens to consider the set. It was fun getting all that companion gear without using keys for folly or doing ig gold. I never got any sword knots, icons or talismans from the event though...don't know if they drop or are just harder to get
  • adinosiiadinosii Member, NW M9 Playtest Posts: 4,271 Arc User

    and, with taking 4 months to get the set, it is probably gonna be obsolete before you can get it.

    That..might be. It has been stated that there will be new gear in Mod 16. I think most people assume that means Level 80 armor and weapons, and levl 80 weapons would be likely to have higher stats than any llevl 70 weapons.

    I am not saying whether this is true or not, but it would be a reasonable, juust based on public info.
    Hoping for improvements...
