    http://forums.riftgame.com/general-d...m-summary.html

    am i wrong or cleric is the only calling for which they have presented only a part of the legendary powers???

    btw, quite disappointed at the moment.
    - nothing in defiler that helps the dots management (are you crazy??? this in NOT what i paid for!!!)
    - RIP puri
    - no fresh ideas at all - cleric calling is slowly dropping in the void

    From what I see in inquisitor;

    They decided to re-introduce all of the RNG that was associated with BoD procs back in the day and then some...

    In case someone from trion is listening...Those 25%(ish) proc chances sometimes meant a 30% swing in dps for inquisitors back in the day. Which was part of the reason why most clerics were shunted to playing inquisicar/senticar back in the day (along with the fact that they were dps/heal hybrids, which seems to be something that is coming back with a brief look at the healing tree legendary abilities)

    EDIT:
    To be clear, I honestly think trion is taking a step backwards with how the mechanics of the inquisitor Legendary abilities work. There was a clear reason why BoD was moved from a 25% chance to proc to a clear set stacking buff mechanic. Despite BoD procs and hardcasting having issues, it was a much better idea than throwing in a pure RNG mechanic. Going back to the RNG proc mechanic is going backwards. Please don't go backwards.

    So what recent Cleric DPS roles aren't based on RNG as of late?

    Not the point, the point was that back in the day when things were 'simple', Inquisitor dps depended largely on the proc's of BoD. The Procs were a 25% chance on a hard casted BoJ. This caused HUGE dps swings.

    What i'm referring to is that now there is literally a legendary ability that makes it so that the New Inquisitor Nuke (channels) have a chance to be reset (procced) with nearly the same % chance as old inquis in the same manner.

    Since channels basically are the new BoD, it's literally like this:

    Old Inquis:
    upkeep dots
    Cast until BoD Proc
    Cast BoD
    Cross fingers for good RNG on BoD

    New Inquis:
    upkeep dots
    Cast until Channel Proc
    Cast Channels
    Cross fingers for good RNG on channels.

    Sure we have more abilities but pretty much the RNG of channel resets is going to dominate. This RNG was axed because it was horrendous. Now it's being re-introduced.

    Thanks, haven't had a chance to look at it yet.

    Have to say that it's a relief to hear this.
