    Default 51 Archon questions

    Ok, I've fallen in love with Archon, and have a few question about it.

    1. Is it useful in raids as a main-soul, to 51 points? I imagine it's not great in experts, but for raids, it should be better (the rDPS it provides increases with raid members)

    2. Is the 51-pointer a 20% cast time reduction, or a 20% hasting effect?

    3. Am I wasting my time?

    1. Yes, if you don't have a raid with a 51-point archon you are wasting your time.

    2. It's 10% casting/melee slow on the Archon, and 10% casting/melee haste for the raid/group.

    3. No.

    I was working on my mobile, with no access to the game, so doing it from memory - as with all Archon group buffs the slow was taken for granted.

    The question should perhaps be, is it cast time reduction, or cast speed increase? (I.E. would a 10s cast become 9s or 9.09s?)

    Everything in this game works on the theory that you can have 100% and it makes things instant. So 10s would be 9s.

    First of all archon alone has a DECENT DPS. Easily over 500 i good gear so thats enough for heavy toolbox class. Try running an EXPERT with this setup: Bard, Cleric healer, Archon, HeavyDPS, Tank. I done this with melee rogue and he got over 1,1k DPS (seriously) while me as archon been maintaining like 490-510'is. Actually archon is good for Experts.



    2. Is the 51-pointer a 20% cast time reduction, or a 20% hasting effect?


    Been explained so i wont.

    51 pointer archon is the most underestimated spec in expert dungeons. Its obvious for raids but its good for experts as well.
