Discussion in 'Dirge' started by ARCHIVED-Whysprr_Wyrd, Apr 5, 2008.
At Master 1 Gravitas is only 25%
Checked mine tonight still at 32%.
Tested it on my warden and his heal amount went up 32%
Wow...that was actually quite informative while simulatneously very funny!
A great article, thank you very much !
I had been thinking of making a Troubador instead, but you've more than convinced me to go Dirge, and made it a great read at the same time.
Hope you make more such guides
I was experimenting with that earlier. I was hoping against hope it would work but alas... My dirge is ratonga but I'm assuming it's the same basic trait (25% increase in trigger on poisons... it should read player made poisons perhaps).
Hi Whysprr, Love the guide, and have been referring to it religiously, as I level up my dirge. Any chance you'll add a discussion of the new TSO AAs to the FAQ? Thanks!
I haven't had much time for either the FAQ or TSO; it's unclear how soon I'll have the knowledge and experience to update it.
A very entertaining and informative read. THANKS for posting it.
I just started a Dirge to play around with last night... mostly because I wanted a class that was NOT about DPS racing OR healing.
I've never really followed through on playing a healer - and I get a little tired of simply trying to pump out my own DPS - and so after reading a bit, the dirge seems like it will be a good alt (maybe future main) to go with my Illusionist. Yes I know that the Illusionist is a utility class - but it's still a class where folks EXPECT you to do good DPS.
Having said that - thankfully, my guild members so far seem quite ok with me just playing the Illusionist and aren't overly concerned with my less than optimal DPS (my gear stinks right now)... what can I say, NOR ROCKS .
I recently spent some time leveling a ranger to 50 (because deep down I love the whole "ranger" thing) - but again, more DPS... and I'm looking for something where folks EXPECT me to do something OTHER than DPS.
And so - the dirge, which seems to be all about the utility.
At any rate, in a moment in which I was completely bereft of inspiration - I named him "Muzic".
Hopefully, I won't single-handedly destroy the global reputation of dirges (As I'm FAIRLY certain I had a hand in the whole "ranger" thing in the original EQ).
Just wanted to say thank you for this guide, I've just started playing a Dirge (after wanting something more after trying a warlock) and I am loving it
This guide helped me alot.
what are the best temporay buffs for our weapons: Rilissian Rager Slipstone, Rilissian Rager Whetstone, Danak Regimental Compoundstone, or Danak Regimental Oilstone ?
Rilissian Rager Slipstone
Should I look for a FAQ 4.0?
Wysp quit the game last year so I dont know if anyone is going to bother creating a v4.0
Would be nice for someone to take her spot and update the FAQ. I gotta say I rely on it heavily, but now its kind of ... out of date and theres a lot of info I'm still curious about.

My character window says that INT has no effect for Dirge. I swapped an item with INT and didn't see any power increase, so INT does not appear to have any use.
