    Default Where are the cleric Synergy Crystal revisions?

    1.4 is tomorrow, have we really just been lied to and forgotten? Are they just holding out on us?

    What will happen next?!

    1 of 2 things will happen.

    A: They revise them (either in 1.4 or hot-fix the changes in later) to a point where we will actually bother using crystals other than the druid one. And we rejoice!

    (cabalist is somewhat ok, but it looks more like a fix for single target dps, which should not be in an end game item, it should be in the soul it self)


    B: They don't revise them, and they end up like the Ancient Soul-stones, collecting dust like so much wasted content. People will cringe when they see them drop over real items (assuming that's how they're acquired), some may even be brought to tears.

    Guy 1: "BAWWWWW!"
    Guy 2:"Its ok man, just pretend its not there, it'll be ok! I promise!"
    Guy 3:"Don't worry, I'll make the bad bad go away" *Rune Break*.

    You buy them with raid currency at one of the merchants outside of Hammerknell - you don't need to raid to cringe at them; I know I do every time I see the Justicar one

    Oh good. At least they can be easily ignored. I will give thanks for that much.

    Lol the justicar one....

    I don't know what they where smoking when they came up with that one. You could have made it do ANYTHING else. I personally cant thing of anything worse that they could have done. I'm actively trying just to post it.

    2 Increase duration for skill spammed well before it ends.

    4 minor decrease in cooldown for most useless skill.

    /facepalm

    Currantly the crystal design pushes any serious player into pvp to gear for pve. The pvp crystal with +200 SP, +500 HP's makes it pointless even considering these pve crystals.

    Anyone who wants to min/max will go for 4x pvp gear with pve belt/gloves/helm + accessories.

    Something big needs to happen to these pve synergy crystals to get people to bother grinding for them when you can get better overall stats from pvp gear lol (which will take 2-3 weeks to grind out)

    You can't wear the PvP gear for PvE, not only are the stats much worse but you lose gloves+helm and accessory hit rating which will likely leave you under the hit cap for HK, let alone the upper tier HK which will give you a -120 hit/focus debuff. It's unfortunately just not practical.

    You can use pvp chest, shoulders, pants and boots. Gives you 4p bonus from pvp crystal and does not cost you a single point of hit/focus.

    A new equipment slot should make you excited about what to get for it, not present options so shocking bad you might well consider skipping 4 pieces of raid gear to get the PvP synergy crystal.

    More than likely nothing will actually happen with them in the foreseeable future. Trion obviously has no clue how Cleric function, I mean giving Cabalist a bonus to DoT is about as pathetic as it can get...oh wait Justicar...

    The Justicar bonus is even more amusing when you consider the fact that it isn't even worth altering a macro to make use of that extended duration. Literally, the bonus goes to waste because it isn't worth the hassle of manually using a buff. They could make it last 30 seconds and there's a good chance no one would care enough to take it out of their macros.

    The PvP gear is basically the spell power version of the epic tier 2 raid gear, so wearing 4 pieces can net you 200 spell power, but it's just sad that Trion is making its player base PvP to be able to PvE.

    Cleric DPS is still ****ty and underwhelming compared to all the other classes. They seriously need to learn their own game better because it isn't even like balancing is that hard.

    Step 1: Find a benchmark
    Step 2: Find a solid rotation
    Step 3: Match appropriate scaling of skills to have viable progression

    Done.

    Stop with the gimmicks. Stop creating abilities that are only feasible within a single set of gear and then completely underwhelming outside of it.

    Exactly Vayra and I beleive this is what will give the best results. +200 SP and 500 HP's is far greater than the difference between 4 peices of HK relic armor over the 4 peices of rank 8 pvp gear.

    Especially since it can be achieved solo in less than a month. Even if a full set of HK relic gear proves to be superior, this set up will still be the best by far up until you have grinded out the 560 elder marks + 7 hexxed thingies or whatever it is for HK gear.

    Good luck convincing PvE'ers to farm crappy PvP content for a month just so they can PvE more haha.
