    Default Tormentor's Battlegear

    We all know that the set bonuses are switched for 3 and 4.

    I have 3 of the pieces: staff, ring, and shoulders.

    So therefore I had a chance for damaging abilities to deal an additional 150 to 220 fire damage while doing the Plutonus fight in RoS.

    Here is the parser of just that effect

    Tormentor's Battlegear 1,883 Damage 5.35 DPS 171.18 average hit

    That was over the whole fight.....WTF....a gain of 5 DPS. LAME!

    Ring, robe and shoulders are not so bad, actually (mage rings are rare drop in raids) untill god's of random show mercy on you and you get your mage loot in raid or collect enough Marks for t3 gear. Tormenter's robe are comparable in stats with a robe from DH. Staff is piece of .... expensive materials waste, but will do fine until it's your lucky day to get mage loot from raid.
    Untill 1.4 there was only one thing to spend plat - artifacts. Now we can spent some of our plat on this gear.

    The staff is easily the worst of the new pieces but the ring, shoulders and chest are comparable to the gear you can buy with MoA so it's pretty nice stuff for new raiders.
    Trion balances Rift around PvP because NPCs don't cry like little children when they get one-shotted.

    Not worth it, 4/4 P6 gear with the Synergy Crystal far outclasses Tormentor Gear.

    Plus Tormentor's is currently bugged, 3/4 will still give you the 4/4 set bonus!

    False, they're above T3. With epic int augs, the shoulders and robe are both BIS before HK or R8 (better than R8 ignoring set bonuses) and the ring is BIS before HK if you need the focus (which you likely would if you're doing HK) or 2nd BIS before HK if you don't behind only the R7 ring. So if you don't PvP at all, you can literally just buy your way to pre-HK BIS items. And that's bullsh*t.

    Heh, that's just as "good" as Uruluuk's Staff.
    They're having some trouble getting this DPS proc thing right, it seems.

    It's actually nice for mages because of extremly low mage loot chances. (Though i 've got robe and pants in HK in a single run.. but that was a lucky day)

    How so? Set bonuses aren't exactly difficult to account for.

    What exactly is meant by "ignore all other options"?

    Pre-1.4, the T3 shoulders were BIS pre-HK. With an epic int aug, the new crafted shoulders are obviously an upgrade.

    Compared to the new R8 shoulders, it's much less obvious. After weighting the stats, though, the crafted shoulders are slightly better (albeit so slightly that they're not worth getting if you already have the R8 shoulders) for PvE. Of course, this is ignoring the set bonuses, and including those does make the R8 shoulders a much better choice.

    Post 1.2k SP crit scales much better than at lower levels, where most calculations are made (usually 900 SP)... at least until you hit the softcap.
    And speaking about set bonuses... 200 SP from SC, anyone ?

    About 250p for 4 pieces of gear if you make it yourself or trade pieces you made for pieces you need. Thats 62.5p per piece on average. That is only slightly higher than purple BoEs on the auction house on my server. It is not that expensive. I make 40 - 50p a day farming for 2 hours and putting the stuff on the AH. So 10 - 12 hours of farming for 4 pieces of decent gear? That is hardly expensive.

    Especially when 2 pieces of that gear is equal to or better than the MoA gear that is what 175 plaques to get both pieces. So lets see if you clear RoS GSB GP and DH each week it would take you what 3 weeks to get that many marks. Hmmm seems less time to farm and craft than to farm raids for the marks.

    Yes for a whopping 4 slots of what 10 or 11? If it was a full suit of 6 plus weapons and rings it might matter. It is 4 pieces for the love of the gods get a grip.
