    Default Sparkling / Burning Witchstones

    I haven't seen any threads talking about the new Sparkling / Burning Witchstones.

    I thought I'd test a Sparkling Witchstone during a GSB raid yesterday to see how they are doing. I won't be giving accurate numbers, but this should give a general idea of how they performed for me.

    First off, I had about Crit rate of 30%-31% (raid buffed).

    The Stone's Proc rate was anywhere between 4% and 9%; it varried from encounter to another.
    Over the whole raid, the Proc rate was about 4%.

    Over the whole raid, the stones accounted for about 55k of my damage, out of over 1.7m total damage I did; a mere 3% damage increase.

    I will be doing further tests with the remaining few stones I still got.

    But suffice to stay, for the mats and expenses they require, I personally feel these stones are not really worth it anymore.

    I'm guessing the new usable Blazing Powerstone (adds 200 SP for 4 hours) will be much better.

    Indeed it seems OP, but we'll just have to see how it turns out.

    They suck.

    Happily, we're getting a new and much better raid consumable. Unhappily, it's ridiculously expensive to make, although perhaps less irritating than the witchstones. (Diamonds are easier to deal with than bones.)

    2 Refined Gem, aka 10 of the gems you sometimes get from breaking the necklaces that take 1 Carmintium and 1 Diamond (light or dark).

    They work on 1h or 2h, but not totems.

    Witchstones are basically going to be backlogged, ignored and forever forgotten once power-stones come out. They are crap. :| Plus I find to really really stupid that it just -has- to be physical damage. Just like the spotters orders changes...why am I dealing physical damage? The issue is really not the proc rate and seems more to be the ICD that the thing has.

    the PTS exists for a reason people. Go on, give your feedback, and help make RIFT a better game.
