  • (despite my warlock being shelved till M19 basically) I've been eye-ing the new Creeping Death with one specific goal: Making it deal >15% of my max hp per tick. If it could manage that then it opens a good window for Primal Gloves and the Infernal Forged Shirt. I've currently been struggling to hit 15% consistently with…
  • Call of Evil change - good generalist change, set is something you can toss low-level alts if nothing else. Rusted Leggings change - a welcome change, but it'll still likely be the bane of many a healer's sanity. Cosmetic gears - While I kinda sorta like the idea of the cosmetic items getting re-introduced, I'm slightly…
  • The only question for new Creeping Death changes: Can the DoT crit, and is it affected by Power/%dmg buffs/enemy %dmg-taken debuffs? At least I'll have a reason to loadup my warlock on Preview now.
  • Some notes on Apocalypse set: 1 - Debuff stacks up, though I don't recall seeing any testing if multiple Apocalypse sets on same target would stack. 2 - (old issue that might still be around) The Apocalypse debuff used to be diminished against "higher than 70 enemies". Like FBI and Chult with their Lvl 74 enemies, the…
  • Feedback (would be cyan but I don't know the code): -I didn't do much, really just hoped over to try and fish out the new ratings cap. I was hitting full dmg at 85k Armor Pen, so I'm going to assume Avernus and Infernal Citadel are 35k enemy ratings. I was expecting a bit higher given one of the final points of the ratings…
  • The only time I ever look at Repel is [x] Single Target [x] Enemy not CC able (aka - Boss fights not named Goristo until recently) Either box unchecked, unslot that spell and use [Steal Time] (arcanist) or [Icy Terrain] (whatever that other paragon is called nowadays). Yes, you're using inferior dmg spells, but you're…
  • So after trying out some Sorbet (I normally prefer that gods' gift to Arcanists known as Lathander's Dew), I've found: Tooltip Power - 163176 "real" Power - 1 + 90474 (Items) + 67702 (Buffs) + 5000 (features) Sorbet tooltip = 7872 What happened though: Removed pet. This brought Tooltip Power to 111,241, did not change…
  • Paingiver, and by extension Field Medic and Immovable Object, charts are near useless for using to measure anything. A healer warlock can stand in a campfire and continually cast [Warlock's Bargain] to dmg themselves by 10% max hp, and THAT will count for Paingiver. Along with all the fun things [Life Bind] can do. So if…
  • Randoms with guild members: I'll run with em for fun. rAD backlog is 5-6 days back across my chars. Randoms with... randoms: The main reason I used to say I was allergic to random queues. I've found I enjoy running the random queue simply for getting set somewhere I haven't run in several mods. Other night guild group…
  • For Boots and Pants you could look at Aurochhide Boots of the Mage (craftable with Leatherworking) Vest is just wait and hope Leather Vest gets a wizard option eventually. If you need a gapfiller for arm Archon's Bracers are pretty low-profile.
  • Problem: Lionheart set What happens when a person acquires the Lionheart set as MC recipe? On top of first having to clear ToMM enough to get the set as drops or buy the set, you then have to go and Mastercraft a new set just because MC Lionheart is better than base Lionheart. And then that opens a whole new puddle of…
  • Pre M16, I was really wanting Gladiator's Guile to be removed as a insignia combo and have that movespeed just be baked into the chars (and be replaced with something universally useful like old Artificers, Shepherds). But when M16 basically ruined half the insignia combo lineup, now there really isn't any super-useful…
  • Ah, Sehanine Moonbow priestess. Fun memories of getting one of my guild leader warlocks to Tyrannical Curse a target she 'confused', and then OUR whole party starts eating the shared dmg from the warlock attacks. If we knew what the hells we were doing I'm pretty sure that warlock woulda killed us all. For memories, I…
  • I was guessing they meant "Your Daily Powers deal x% more dmg" I don't have easy access to Ring of Offensive Action to test the "When you use a daily power, your dmg increases by x%", and don't know of anything else that gives such bonus.
  • Test done with Arbiter Cleric Wooden Weapon - Ring of Hunter +5 (baseline) vs Ring of Spy Guild (+3% Daily Dmg) Hallowed Ground daily with Hunter Ring = 966-992 healing per tick Hallowed Ground daily with Spy Guild Ring = 966-992 healing per tick If anyone else wants to try a different non-damaging daily feel free to add.
  • In my quite biased opinion, in the above scenarios, Arbiter Cleric should lose the Perfect Balance stacks since many stackable buffs are lost upon death (Wizard Arcane Mastery, Warlock Soul Investiture to name a couple) however, Soulweaver Warlock should not lose their remaining Soul Sparks on death, as Cleric (maybe…
  • I would honestly be fine with Arcanist AoE if [Steal Time] didn't have a bad tendency to misfire. Where you hit the button, start about a half-second of the animation, and the spell just cancels. Sometimes you get the reduced CD, most times it's full CD timer. I just look at Arcanist = Single Target nukage, Thaum = AoE…
  • If we're treating this as the giant bug thread for the day: Soshenstar Hunts - defeating 1 hunt and then re-summoning the hunt for a second run causes the prey to appear and despawn nearly instantly. Wasting your lure and yielding no rewards.
  • Ioun Stones have just as much issue with falling behind and dropping your stats as walking Augments do. If you watch your map you'll see that the Ioun Stone has a separate entity that follows you just like the walking Augments. I'd argue that Iouns are actually worse cause visually they appear to be flying around your…
  • I've seen the Remorhazes pop up as well. Last few times Remorhaz popped up there was some message on screen about "the runic energy has begun to coalesce in the middle." "a runic monstrosity has appeared!" or something similar. One remorhaz I can remember spawned with just my Barb and a Fighter in the bubble, so maybe rule…
  • Lvl 71-80 Gathering Tasks are still only yielding 1 per task run, with the exception of Regalia Sand (according to the tooltip for the task, yields 12 per task run). If the Gathering Tasks are intended to be left at a 1 per run yield, then the new 71-80 craftings are going to be too gold and time costly to be anywhere near…
  • Adamant, Samite, and Dark Leather were dyes I've seen on the first-tier Mastercraft armors that were on AH. I never crafted them myself to know if they came pre-dyed or not.
  • It's not a guaranteed death. The moment that curse is on you, you need to be watching for her to call out "Be still!" and purposely look at her when she uses her 360 petrify eye. That cleanses the curse and shortens your time petrified. If you miss 1, maybe 2 of those eyes if you have a good healer helping you, then you…
  • For Rangers: Dye-ing the main hand weapon Bow also applies the dye color scheme to the Offhand melee weapons. Attempting to dye the melee weapons afterwards does not over-ride the dye color scheme from the main hand Bow. (imagine this is in red, I don't remember the code for it)
  • The only Daily soulweavers should be hitting in my opinion is Immolation Spirits. Especially if you are running Wyvern / Staff of Flowers sets. 10 soul sparks - regardless if the Immo Spirits actually attack - , and the Immo Spirits refresh the uptime on Rune of Aggression / Rune of Cooperation / any of the new arti set…
  • "Players no longer need higher-than-intended armor penetration for Chult and Ravenloft. This was caused by an old buff that was still in place by accident in M16. Thank you for the reports." [Combat Log] Your Repel deals 56622 (60517) Arcane Damage to Nemilos. This is from a wizard with 80.5k Arm Pen. Against a Level 70…
  • Prized Pact Blade of the Cult is a random Master Expedition drop. Acct bound on drop. Can get from Rage rune runic chest (I assume at least), and from quest turn-in at Obaya. Acceptable weapon for folks who haven't gotten Alabaster/Burnished and refined those to Epic at least. It doesn't refine or anything though.
  • Char Bound enchants (Heart of Fire for example) will make the gear char bound as well.
  • Chest piece: Executioner's Black Attire from SH Mystery Merchant +5% dmg when attacking a target from behind (added dmg proc of 5% dmg dealt) Currently glitchy in attacking multiple targets if they are facing away from you. (Hit 1 critter, everything in the 80+ ft area not facing you gets hit with the dmg proc)
  • I took it upon myself to test eversummer's claim, and it indeed seems to be the same issue with the Apprentice Spoils set: Inherit Danger does not dmg Lycosa (I probably didn't position just right for Ice Knife to get that benefit), but Inherit Danger proc-ed on 2 Twig Blights, 1 you can see at the top-center of the screen…
