    Default Why are stats better as greater essences?

    Title sais it all pretty much, after some fun theorycrafting/parsing it pretty much was solid, stats from lessers > all greater essences for DPS, my question is why? whats the point of greaters if they well aint greater? (tests were done on warrior/cleric, not sure about mage/rogue but doubt there is much iof a difference there)

    (parses put greater essences including the raid ones from anywhere from .5% to 1.8ish% dps increase while stats were 1.5-3% depending on build etc (specially crit))

    Indeed.

    My suggestion is to combine the stats of a lesser, with the proc from a greater, on a single greater essence. Then they'll always be worth using.
    I'm so BORED

    exaclty are just boost them across the board, but hoping atleast a dev or someone who can refer it over to a dev passes over this and well makes a change to all of them to put them in line where they should be :/

    Thanks for doing the math on this for us.

    I've always wondered what kind of "chance" they were talking about in the Greater Essence verbage.
    I have a "chance" to win the Powerball this Saturday but I don't see that happening very often either.

    I think the beastmaster one is quite good too. But you need 50 stones for it (hard to get now) and special sigil/machine for it. So in the end.....

    if you compare same quality and level the greaters do sort of edge ahead.

    However theres isn't many level 50 purple greaters that arent trying to be something unique and different.

    if they brought in extensions of the "good" greaters to the level 50 mark and made purple versions then they'd be competative.

    Still makes me wonder why the stillmoor and such essences are 45

    And of course if your focusing on 1 stat, the fact that there is no longer unique family equip issues you can potentiall gain there even over level 50 purple lessers.

    Those epic 50 stone greaters are really good, but others are ****.
    Why would someone equip greater which has - chance to increase crit hit by 50 for x sec when u can equip lesser which gives u permanent ~40 crit + att and all other stuffs which comes with stats + resists?

    Anyone purchased any of the 50 sourcestone greaters? I'm curious if the shaman one that increases damage of winter storm by 15 is additionally affected by spellpower.

    In general source stone effects are unaffected by spell power
