    Default Adorned or 6 lesser?

    2x Adorned

    1x Adorned

    6 lesser

    - Which would you prefer, and why? (DPS spec)

    That was not what I asked for, I asked for what I said in starting post. Also, I'm Defiant.

    If adorned weren't, you know, Unique Equip I would probably run 2. Since they are UE I run 6x Lesser

    As of 1.2 I see.

    Is there any calculations that shows how big an improvement 6x lesser is compared to adorned?

    I dont know.. I stopped min/maxing mage because its like no matter what we do we're screwed by trion anyway and rogues and warriors will own us with ease. So now I put in essences that benefit my role and just kinda enjoy it. I'm runnin deathtouched + adorned + 4 lessers as a necrolock. I think since dot ticks get the bonus from the adorned, and adorned only reduces on a cast, if lots of dots are ticking, then more of them are getting boosted up from the adorned than just a nuking class.

    SO personally I think when it comes down to it... if you're not playing a necrolock then the all lessers will come out ahead ever-so-not-really-important-but-slightly. And if you're a necrolock then adorned will be the not important slightly ahead.

    Yes. Once again I have answered the same question many times when newbies was comparing loldorded shadeshard to guardian carebear mode necrotic rage and said the adorned is better (lol its not even close).

    Lets assume Adorned Shadeshard is 1... or 100%.
    The best dps Planar lesser (e.g Pyro Spark) in 1.3 is about 130%
    Any 20 inscribe sourcestone brought lesser is on average 120%
    1 Necrotic Rage is about 310%.

    The answer is clear. Defiant gets shafted in dps source machine is no news. 5x lesser + necrotic rage is currently the best mage dps combo in game which is guardian only and is approximately equal to defiants running 8x lesser. (which is currently impossible)
