  • Could you please elaborate on this? Is the Tales of Old neck + waist combo better than Orcus/MW3/whatever? Or are you talking about the artifact? Speaking of which, does anybody know what the stat at legendary for Tales of Old Neck and Waist are? And what are the stats for the Mythic Tales of Old Artifact?
  • So, we got these nice new looking weapons, but with no set bonus? They're for transmute or to have something slitghtly better than the crafted blue ilvl 510 set but worse than Primal (counting set bonus ofc), it that the deal?
  • Any update on wheter any DR over the usual cap increases the %AP gain from Martial Mastery? I may or may not make a loadout with stupid amounts of Defense, a Defender companion and Survivor's Wraps, just for the hell of it. Who wouldn't want 300% Damage Reduction and thus 3x AP gain for everyone with Martial Mastery? (I…
  • Judging by the phrasing, I'd say Shield of Faith counts as a DR source, but maybe that's another 30% layer. On the other hand, Knight's Valor and Divine Protector sound like a whole different concept, as in "take some of what's left of the damage the other players would take and eat it yourself (and then reduce that damage…
  • That sounds like it would be part of DR, not an additional layer. Dunno if anybody tested that.
  • Would you use Sabo over Exe on boss fights too? I mean, did Shadow of Demise get so nerfed that Sabo could compare? Also, no love for Scoundrels? Those bonus damage feats look juicy, yet nobody seems to recommend Scoundrel fo anything. Why is that?
  • Ok, so I'm out of luck if I wanted a buff that lowers incoming damage even more. Sometimes I get 0 damage taken during combat, as in a yellow 0 flying above my head. Does it mean temp hp or Anointed Army has eaten that 1,6% completely, or is there something else? I want my Reckless Attacker stacks to build up and also want…
  • Well, that's a lot less damage for my GF to eat. If we wanted to reduce the damage even further, just out of spite for the poor mobs trying to caress us, what could we add in the mix, without resorting to debuffs? I mean, would DCs' Divine Glow, Hallowed Ground and Anointed Army or Paladins' daily bubbles, Sacred Ground or…
  • Edited, thanks. I was in a rush when I wrote that, so i mixed up terms.
  • So I guess we should all be aiming for those MW3, regardless of our roles and classes? My ACDC is kind of fine with it, even if it is gonna suck saving up all those ADs. So, just for the sake of it, has anybody tried the blue ilvl 510 set? How does it fare against Primal?
  • Could you please elaborate on that? What do you do with that much Recovery and what does your rotation look like on preview?
  • There's a misunderstanding here. TRs do not use all those dailies one after another to increase their power to be able to one shot ToNG. TRs NEED those dailies and power increase to be able to do the damage that any main dps would normally deal. And, since you can't chain dailies without the right gear, mounts, insigna…
  • Well, that's 1:1 . I thought of picking Compounded Soul too, but i guess those 5% temp hp aren't worth the loss of Soul Breaker / Promise . So how about this: Soul Breaker on trash and Critical Promise on boss fights with not many adds? Or is the Soul Breaker feat so weak compared to Critical Promise that is only worth…
  • Well, that's disappointing. Understandable, but disappointing. Thanks for the feedback
  • Ok, our trapper HR is experimenting with LSS while dpsing at the moment. We still haven't attempted any hard dungeon yet, so I can't provide any feedback on how it works. Still, dpsing while providing a 40% damage buff sounds effective. I'll let you know as soon as we see how it works out. Meanwhile, thanks for the feedback
  • Thanks for the feedback. I had no idea HRs had so much to bring on the table besides their dps. Of course, it would be a waste to use a HR purely for buffing, wouldn't it? How about something like this: an Hybrid dps/buff, Pathfinder Trapper Encounters: Longstrider's Shot for obvious dmg % buff Thorn Ward/Commanding Shot…
  • A question about Barovia boons: in every spec you suggest using Righteous Sacrifice as the last boon. Does it proc like Primal Weapons, aka when you get damaged OR healed for 10% of your maximum HPs? Also, does Hypnotic Gaze even proc at all with the abilities DCs usually use?
  • Speaking of Hynotic Gaze, I can think of a couple powers that could proc it: Break the Spirit and Forgemaster's Flame. Maybe Chains too, but mainly BTS and FF. Anybody with this boon yet?
  • Man, I'll totally get the Apocalypse set for those days in which I feel like hating myself. But seriously, we've got plenty of time ahead. If I'll ever get my hands on one of those sets I'll do some testing myself.
  • Seems like I forgot a set, a set that has a very interesting bonus: Blood Raven Set: Artifact: 1000 Recovery, 1000 Regeneration, 600 Guard/Stamina Gain Neck: 8 AC, 879 Recovery, 1400 Defense, 879 Deflection Waist: 2 WIS, 2 CHA, 5601 HP, 879 Critical, 879 Recovery Set bonus: When you cast a healing aoe that only hits you or…
  • Well, I guess my GWF is going to save some money to get this little thing. Half an Unp Vorpal on a companion, definitely can't pass this up.
  • This Razorwood thing seems like a must have. Now we just gotta wait for a Raccoon companion, a blue/gray hulking human companion that can't understand figures of speech, a green adopted daughter of the embodiement of the Universe companion and a human former demigod companion, and we can just play Guardian of the Galaxy in…
  • With the Apocalypse set we're looking at: Artifact: 1000 Power, 1000 Deflection, 600 Companion Influence Neck: 4% AP / 3 sec , 1400 Crit, 879 Recovery, 879 Life Steal Belt: 2 STR, 2 CHA, 879 Power, 879 Crit, 1400 Armorpen Set Bonus: up to 5% more dmg taken by the target (gotta be tested) For a grand total of: 2 STR 2 CHA…
  • Any update about the AC DC and Support DO builds' equipment sets? There are a few sets that could be viable for a support: Apocalypse Set: whenever you hit an enemy with a critical hit, that enemy takes 1% more damage for 5 seconds, stacking up to 5 times. Vistani Set: when you cast a damaging AoE spell but it hits only…
  • Yes, that's right. This whole thread was more about what the Chultan Tiger's abilities could do in certain situations rather than discussing wheter it is the best summoned companion or not. I guess dps can get the Tiger and call it a day. Supports and tanks might look at the Sword trio or something else, or get the Tiger…
  • My bad, I forgot that some bosses have adds too. That basically means that, until the Chultan Tiger realizes it has that Rending Swipe thing, we can state: Solo play: Classes with CAdv abilities: Chultan Tiger: single target debuff, no AOE debuff, amazing active bonus Sellsword Trio: single target debuff, AOE debuff,…
  • As always, thanks for your wonderful guides. Right now, my DO DC is kind of a messy Support DO with WoL, all points spent in Righteous (to get all the debuffs and 10% armorpen) Radiants of character and Silveries on my companion's offense slots. It's my jack of all trades loadout, and it's quite useful, since i rarely get…
  • Well, that's disappointing. Of course, that only matters in solo play, and only for classes that don't get a CAdv effect . In 99 out of 100 dungeon groups there'll never be a lack of CAdv effects, so the tiger will almost always be BiS, at least on the targets that really matter, aka bosses. Still, having an ability that…
  • Speaking of debuff stacking, i was under the impression that all the debuffs stacked, except for Dread, up until the absolute unreachable limit of 300% increased damage taken, with harsh diminishing returns after 200%. Up until now I thought everyone in the party could run Trans Terror and have all those +6% dmg stack. It…
  • In the end i picked up the Pioneer set. Quite the upgrade from the teak set and I literally didn't have to farm for it. You really can't complain about an upgrade that comes with a price tag of nothing. Especially if you also have a dps character that needs a new weapon. Also, I'll eventually buy a Masterwork III set. I…
