    It’s useless at 110 allakazam is wrong level limit on it is 105 on focus ?
  2. yepmetoo Abazzagorath

    No. It works up to level 110.
  3. Intenso Augur

    It should increase all damage 10%? But notice no diff in max hits on combat dummy with or without it at level 110?
  4. Sancus Augur

    No. Re-read the description, or look at a spell parser that isn't lucy/allakhazam.

    What do you mean?
    The item description says "Improves the power of your damaging and healing abilities by 10%". Winparser says "Increase base spell effectiveness by 10%". I think he has the gist of how it should work, though I am doubting the conclusion that it only goes to 105. If his max damage from spell is the same with or without the aug then it would seem that its not working.

    Is it possible that it is blocked by the guild trophy from Talendor, or maybe from TBL illusion benefit Greater Jann?
  6. Sancus Augur

    Based on what he said, he doesn't. It doesn't "increase all damage," it affects abilities, i.e. direct damage spells, damage over time spells, and skill attacks. Those abilities have to be of a level equal to or less than 110; the level of the caster is irrelevant.

    In fairness he wasn't very specific about how he was testing it, but I took his post to mean he melee'd a combat dummy and saw no change in max hit, which is as expected.

    And to be abundantly clear, it works fine right now. Trophy of Talendor is a DD/DoT critical damage modifier, so there are no stacking issues there. Greater Jann is 1) a spell and 2) using completely unrelated spell effects, so also no stacking issues.

    Ok I see what you mean Sancus. I was reading his post as spells, but he could have thought it was melee hits. Odd that he would think that.
    Wish I had one of those. But getting a raid to go back to do TBM challenges is next to impossible.

    I am one /ach away from finishing it, and I personally blew that /ach for the raid when we last attempted it. :(

    Rather disappointing to learn that it has a max level of 110 on it. Discouraging, since it's possible that the level cap will be raised before many of us get it finished. That reward has been a big, fun carrot for the casual raid scene on Bristlebane.

    Is it known whether it will have diminishing returns on abilities greater than 110, or whether it will just become completely useless?

    I'm sorry to hear of your misfortune on the emote. :( It really is still difficult to do all the chieves for that aug, sure dps and stat increases ease the burden on some of it but coordination is absolutely essential. I'll be honest, after running people through getting that aug every summer since TBM, I'd really like the aug to die at some point. I really don't want to deal with going back to what is my least favorite expac, ever in EQ. At least LoY gave us Guktans.

    On the other hand I don't really agree fully with the reasoning on the focus decay on this aug. The Devs don't want to create another Necro 2.0 type item that they have to design around. While nice, this aug pales in comparison to what the 2.0 does for Necros. As much as I hate the idea of going back and doing these chieves for people, this item should be everlasting.
  10. I_Love_My_Bandwidth Mercslayer

    Completely agree here.

    This is really no different than Heroic AA. Achievements like this are monumental, even at the current level. The rewards should carry through the remainder of the game.

    where do they get that info from unless its from dev its means nothing? just guessing
  14. NameAlreadyInUse #CactusGate

    Thanks, Nniki. That definitely looks like an absolute cut-off, not a gradual decay :(

    I couldn't agree more! And the necro 2.0 is not even a good comparison. This aug is more like like DoN progression rewards or OMM Trials rewards. If the devs want to eventually remove the aug item, why not change the effect to an AA like those expansion rewards?

    As it is now, nobody will ever do TBM raids again after the next level increase.

    It's not guessing, it's from spells_us.txt in your EQ folder. It's the same file the game uses. The line that the parser reads for this spell is:

    49694^Eyes of Life and Decay^PLAYER_1^^100^0^0^0^0^0^0^3^1950^0^0^2511^2056^-1^-1^-1^-1^1^1^1^1^-1^-1^-1^-1^0^1^0^6^0^14^0^0^0^255^255^255^255^255^255^255^255^255^255^255^255^255^255^255^255^42^0^0^2^0^0^0^0^0^0^0^0^0^0^0^0^0^0^0^0^0^0^100^161^86^0^0^0^0^0^0^0^0^0^49694^0^0^0^0^0^0^0^100^0^0^0^0^0^0^0^0^0^0^100^0^3^1950^0^0^0^0^0^50^0^0^0^0^0^0^0^0^0^0^1^1^0^0^0^0^0^-1^0^0^0^0^0^0^1^1^1^-1^0^0^0^1^25^-1^0^1^0^0^1^0^1^0^0^0^0^0^0^0^1|413|10|0|100|0$2|411|131070|0|100|0$3|134|110|0|100|0$4|137|0|0|100|0$5|137|79|0|100|0$6|137|100|0|100|0$7|137|193|0|100|0

    The particular part that indicates the level cap is "|0$3|134|110|0|100|." That means that slot 3 uses SPA 134, with a Base1 value of 110. That's "134 - Ff_LevelMax", and the Base1 value denotes the max level.

    So, if it's the level of the spell/ability, would that mean that Dicho/Dissident and AA abilities get 0% from it, since they are technically classed as level 254?
  18. Nniki Augur

    Yep. This will affect effects with SPAs 0, 79, 100, or 193 that have a level of 110 or lower.
  19. Warpeace Augur

    Its 110
  20. I_Love_My_Bandwidth Mercslayer

    That needs to be changed to 255.
