    Default Need help for essences

    Hey guys,

    *tried search didn't found something to match my mate*

    I'm a pvp only healing cleric who occasionally likes to DPS.

    Problem im having with my sigil is the following..

    For lesser i want 4 times the 33 + valor ones... (obviously since i only pvp and they seem best.)

    For greater essences im using necrotic rage and lively flare.

    So I was thinking maybe getting something better for necrotic rage? Some ppl tell me it's old stuff and should replace it... tho I don't want to replace it for a healing only greater essence

    It has to do both... so that's why necrotic rage is still viable... discuss ? Or please help me =)

    Get another sigil so you can have one for dps, one for pvp.

    Necrotic Rage is best in slot, do not replace it.

    Actually with the newer vendor lessers that is no longer so clear cut, it is dependent on the proc rate. When you compare the below values with the sixth BiS lesser (because that's the one you will be replacing it with), you can see at the lower proc rate the static lesser can be favourable. Personally I was sick to death of using my cancelbuff macro whenever I wanted to mount so I have replaced mine.

    Necrotic Rage proc rate 66%

    85.14 Balanced EP @2.15
    139.00 High Spellpower EP @3.51

    Necrotic Rage proc rate 80%

    103.2 Balanced EP @2.15
    168.48 High Spellpower EP @3.51

    @OP, why not stack two more 33 Valor Lessers instead? You can pick up the two top Mage lessers, just check the "show filtered items" checkbox. Otherwise a Hailstone Tideshard is handy, it can also proc from Vex+Contempt if you use Inq for DPS.

    This is way I'm planning on going too. Flat mitigation that effects *everything* tossed at you is never bad, plus the stats are always "up" whereas with a proccy-greater, (even with a high proc rate), it's not going to be always "up".
