Any way to finish epic 2.0 without....

    Starting with ToV expansion, it was very apparent that the game was steering towards rewarding those that crafted, with more than just furniture and appearance items and players that did both, adventure and craft, would have the advantage.
    It was just a matter of time before it would be required to get BiS and / or necessary item(s).

    2.0 is necessary for raiding as it protects the player from planar energies. It does allow one with the epic to cast that same buff on another in the raid that does not have their 2.0 yet and earlier in the game, we did have raid members that we had to cast the buff on to protect them and the raid.

    As far as 2.0 being necessary to get a group, that is just silly.

    The biggest discrepancy is jewelry. T4 jewelry is insanely better than anything else in the game, 2000+ potency

    And you didn't even talk about 'resolve' which is far more important on some levels.

    Silly but true none the less.

    My wizard has 4400 cb, 29k potency, 18m hp.

    does not have epic yet, locked behind ascension.

    Cannot get a PUG to save his life. Only run in group zones and my DPS is for crap because I'm missing all the bonuses that come with the epic.

    That you need to be level 100 crafter is kind of annoying .. but considering the length of the questline it's kinda equal to a faction grind. One of the gear up weeks prolly is a double xp week, with that you can level from level 9 crafter to 100 in 8 hours.

    IF you still need/want to grind it then:
    1 to 9 just craft
    9 speak with crafting trainer and you are level 10
    10 to 19 just craft
    19 speak with crafting trainer and you are level 20
    20 to 80 do Rush Orders
    80 do the pudding quest if you aim for the Crafters Cloak
    80 to 95 do Rush Orders
    95 to ~ 97/98 do the tranquil sea crafting timeline (decent if you want a chance for 66 slot back pack, sidersilk from great divide crafting timeline is needed to craft that, but can be bought from broker as well)
    98 to 100 do Rush Orders

    That is a shame. On AB, I never refuse to run a group because a member doesn't have their epic 2.0 and I know for a fact we have people that don't mind that either! You should have seen some of the groups I was in with not only my main, but also an alt that hasn't run the KA timeline, let alone even started her epic! I guess on AB we just want something to do, since our player-base is so small now.:p

    I would be skeptical of a wizard's dps with less than level 10 ascension and no epic. Doesn't mean it will be bad but I would pick someone with an epic if I had a choice...

    Once you have the needed resolve, potency is much more important. High resolve low potency is no more effective then the reverse.

    But to keep the 1000k pot/7 resolve charm, or swap for a 500pot/11 resolve charm, can drive a person nuts.
  10. Mermut Well-Known Member

    Wear the 1000k pot charm unless you're too low on resolve for a specific zone. Extra resolve doesn't help. There's no such thing as 'extra' potency ;)

    If you do crap dps before the epic you will do crap after. The wizard epic is not a massive turning point.

    Vunder, we don't call our for PuG's a lot on IoR as we try to run guildies through Heroics/ Experts. That said, if I am on, you can give me a shout and we'll drag you along if there is room. Instead of excluding folks, we choose what we are going to run based on whom we have available. We want everyone to get a chance to run :)

    This is true to an extent, the fervor/fervor overcap/combat mit debuff help a lot, plus the extra damage on fusion is pretty huge, though if you don't have the Wizard class down by then you're probably too far behind the curve, so this is a yes/no thing about bad before/after epic.

    so apparently we have to have for the last tier 4 raid mob for PoP now....
