Anniversary Raid Question

    Is the anniversary raid temporary or permanent?

    It seems raidloot hasn't been updated for those of us who need to plan out upgrades. What should we know about the drops?

    1h dagger for applicable classes
    2h blunt for everyone else

    No augs or clickies?

    Some anniversary.

    Is there anything meaningful for casters? Was great opportunity for 2 hand weapons with updated clicks. Shame if it’s just another ore item.
  5. Sancus Augur

    Nah, just a slightly higher stat version of the ToL staff, both of which are DPS downgrades from the CoV staff.
  6. Cicelee Augur

    They should increase the proc rate on the TOL staff, maybe as much as double it. Maybe then casters will want the TOL 2hb...
  7. Jumbur Improved Familiar

    How do you see the proc-rate of a weapon? :confused:

    Maybe they lowered the proc-rate to help with raid-lag. Is it only caster weapons that have a lower proc-rate than previously, or all weapons?
  8. Cicelee Augur

    That is fine if they lowered the proc rate. The problem is that, as Sancus mentioned, it provides lower DPS than the COV weapon. So as long as that stays true, casters won't be going after it.
  9. Evurkvest Augur

    Why is ToL/Anni staff less dps than CoV?
  10. ShadowMan Augur

    So disappointing that the caster staves were not added with updated versions of the clicks. What a wasted opportunity.
  11. Sancus Augur

    Season’s Wrath and Elemental Arrow focus cold (and fire) procs, but not Magic procs.
  12. Zaray Augur

    We got the following loot:
    Cobalt-Reinforced Greaves

    Three dropped for us last night. I grabbed one in the hope that the procs are improved to make it viable in raids.

    As a solo/group weapon while not grouped with a Druid or ranger, the procs are nearly the same damage as the COV 2hb. Maybe increasing the base damage by 1000 more for both melee and caster proc would push it ahead of COV 2hb, but I don't think that is enough to offset the raid DPS discrepancy
  15. Zaray Augur

    Our second run, we got (that wasn't in our original list):
    Kly Skinned Pantaloons
    Sathir Staff of Leadership
    Venril's Wedding Ring
  16. Jumbur Improved Familiar

    Sathir staff of forbidden magic
    Demi lich pantaloons
    Iksar hide pantaloons
  17. Windance Augur

    Are there any tricks for dealing with skelly adds?

    As "normal" we were about 9 people short of full raid and don't seem to have enough sustained DPS to keep up once our burns start to fade.

    Is it just a DPS has to be XXX or go home and play my pretty pony ?
  18. Lubianx Augur

    Some of the skeletons can be charmed, but not all.

    Have your tanks Glyph when tanking them as well.

    Both of these can help a bit but in the end a fair bit of DPS is needed

    To a certain extent it's just a DPS check. Remember you're gonna have the 2 mini's and 4 golems going live at the end of the skeleton phase, so if you aren't burning hard enough to limit the number of skeletons up you're in for a bad time. Obviously the stronger your tank/heals the more things you can tank at once, but it'll be rough down 9 people unless the other 45 are really bringing the heat.

    Without giving away too much information the event has many similarities to Drusilla's Vault in RoS.

    You can minimize adds with some well timed burns.
