    Why doesn’t 2hander have double slots for red and blue adorns

  4. Melt Actually plays the game

    Piggyback to say, is it supposed to be usable by all classes or is that a mistake?

    what about the shard staff in comparison with these weapons?

    The shard staff isn’t a weapon, it’s a Clickie inventory item,

    Ok I have questions...

    Firstly, the same effect on both weapons?

    Secondly, does that effect even work? There's a strong feeling that the withering/tainted blade runes don't work and they're the same effect, different numbers.

    Third. Is that all of the available options? Or are there rewards better suited to tanks and scouts?

    Forth. Please tell me then that Sol's Eye is a candy-shop of salvageable weapons, because the biggest hurdle to actually using these items will be weapon essences for upgrading them.

    I'd add:

    Combat Mitigation increase with each new content, yet class abilities have never been increased and those new weapons does not include any effect like "Prismatic Distraction" or "Equalize". And we all know how important those effect are today in raids and some heroics.

    Does it means that Combat Mitigation will be revamp or that we will get some new way to effectivly decrease combat mitigation of our targets ?

    I also second the point about the real effect of those new weapons. Because as of today any real test of similar effects (withering...) show very little effect compare to the displayed values and expected results.

    Those combat mit proc means nothing when raid mobs have 150k+ combat mit.

    @ Tanto /Moss
    I wanted to ad something to your points.
    As we learned in one of the last podcasts is that weapons will be differently in the upcoming expansion. A player will have choices with different Augmentations /Adornments.
    Does that mean the the lifespan of these weapons is only 4,5,6 months at best ? So we shouldn't bother leveling them up with essences.

    Is there any chance there is something for those of us who aren't into raiding, endgame, or monochrome stuff? Maybe something for crafters and decorators? It's no biggie, as I have lots to do, just wondering.

    The thing about focusing an entire GU on raiding and high end grouping is, it kinda requires the basics to work -- class balance, itemization, healing, utility, etc. If that's not in the cards, then content should really be focused on casual and storytelling where it's ok if one class is 3x as powerful as another or some classes are entirely broken in raid settings with no signs that anything is going to be done to fix it.

    Devs seem to be trying to court race car drivers with OEM parts.

    Class balance certainly needs to be looked at in the near future but that usually happens when new a expansion hits, not during a regular GU. Longstanding issues aside, this looks like a pretty exciting update.

    It literally will only take less than a week of running the BoL solo zones to get enough essences to level weapons. I've leveled 2 other weapons on the same toon just running the solos and then using the essences to upgrade. Working on my 3rd two hander now. Yeah it sucks running the solos over and over but this is evergrind.......I mean everquest :)

    Can you share any information about the heroic zone(s) and/or weapons? Are the same available from heroic? Drops or quest-earnt/rewarded?

    Looking forward to revisiting both zones!

    Unfortunately Fervor to professional spells does almost nothing for pet classes. As it does not effect pets of anykind and all our non assention spells do negigable damage.

    I'm sure they'll be useful in those first few solo quests.
