    Hello all,

    I am trying to figure out how to get max power regen for group needs, and I am looking for an AA spec that will get me pointed in the right direction. Any of my fellow dirges have something that works for them? My groupies sometimes need some power pump. I have been digging around on EQ2U without any luck so far. Any guidance would be appreciated!

    Everything I find in the forum is years old, with a lot of folks saying not to even bother. I am under the understanding that it has improved to be viable in the last 2 xpacs?

    The dirge I used to raid on in last xpac is named Daith. What you're essentially looking for is a left side prestige in AA tree. Feel free to check his out.

    Exuberant Encore in the prestige tree, take max duration and power feed. With max duration it's up about 50% of the time and will give your group full power constantly.

    Actually, depending on what mobs/instances/raid zones you are in, it may not "give full power constantly." While it's effective, the massive dependence by devs on mana draining by the mobs as a strategy can make it dicey at best. You can cast the spell and your entire group can be drained almost immediately. This has been the case for the last several xpacs.

    In current content it's rare. I did Betrayer 4 with 2 dirges in group as the only powerfeeds, and nothing so far has been as drain intensive as that fight.

    Define "current content" you are using. "Current content" in my definition includes all potential content in a given xpac--from solo to raiding. Obviously, soloing would be excluded in the description, but anything else would. And based on your own statement, you shouldn't need two dirges in one group when Exuberant Encore "With max duration it's up about 50% of the time and will give your group full power constantly."

    2 dirges is 100% uptime because there was no other powerfeed. Current content is raids, because balance is irrelevant outside of raids. Any class can do anything below like Vex Thal.

    I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to say. It's a decent powerfeed. Every time the target takes damage (which, with surge, is pretty much every second) your group gets full power. However, it's only up for 25 seconds of every minute, so it's supplementary at best.

    The power is decent. I have a dirge I raided on last xpac and started this year, but we needed the healer more. My issue was with your statement that power drains are rare in current content. If that was the case, as you state, my question is why do you need two dirges and your response was "there was no other powerfeed." I don't get how you reconcile that power draining isn't a problem, but you need two dirges for content. Do you see the dichotomy there?

    For betrayer 4 you absolutely need several power feeds, but for the majority of content it isn't necessary. As compared to previous expacs, the mana drain isn't that bad to the point that Exuberant is a good feed, because you aren't getting drained more than once a second.
