    Default ID Cleric Gearing

    Okay. So to-date there is only 1 weapon upgrade for clerics in ID. And who has PA in 2Hs?

    Emberlord's Cauterizing Greatstaff
    http://rift.xanadu-community.com/ite...ewItem&id=1744

    I havent seen the Tidal Force Truncheon from Akylios or and ive missed out on Bane of Madness. Havent seen the cleric staff or the dps dagger.

    My only option is really the crafted ID dagger. So what I am asking is should I hold out for an Akylios to drop or get the dagger crafted?

    I would not recommend getting the crafted weapon unless you are sure that you wont be getting an ID weapon any time soon and it appears that most of the cleric weapons will be dropping off of laethys, the eggs, and maelforge. (Side note here, WTF Trion, give us clerics some upgrade able weapons from the easy boss like everyone else has).

    So in your case, being 3/(possible 6 atm), I would lean toward the crafted if your guild has had bad luck with cleric weapons dropping from Akylios.


    As far as weapons go ID (that are upgrade able), there is a DPS hammer, Healing mace, and DPS totem already known. As well as a mage staff and totem (not the archon one). This is based on what was made available on the PTS during testing (not test gear, but the actual ID weapons).

    Well, if you haven't gotten Conclave down yet to get Emberlord's Cauterizing Greatstaff... and your guild leader is okay with utilizing some of the mats, then you could go for the ID crafted piece.

    Although, I'd probably rather wait it out for Akylios to drop something other than the Orb you still have. Once you craft an item, you almost always end up seeing your weapon drop just after.

    Good luck.

    Surely since the crafted dagger gets zero extra SP from PA it's not worth using right? Unless you have very low PA ofc.

    Not a big deal imho. If you can't afford 100 plat to respec for staff I don't know what to tell you, and if it effects your tanking a little doing so... oh poor you with a staff with 810 spellpower.

    Ember greatstaff vs Bane of madness

    888.75-800.25 = 88.5 sp gain
    84-96 = -12 (-100proc) crit loss, -112 total.

    you reckon thats worth it? seeing that we are barely at soft cap and already losing crit from ID gear?
    See you all in Wildstar!

    For those of us not wielding Bane, surely this staff is an upgrade too.

    I never had the Bane of Madness to begin with, so I never lost out on any crit. I had the Staff of Crazed Whispers before the Conclave staff dropped.

    @Alex113 - Good thing we don't use DKP either .
