    Default Source Machine

    Hi,

    Currently weather I am DPS or chloro I use a source machine with the below lessers

    Living Surge, Pyro Flare, Dark Rituals, Mystic Surge, Living Quest and Last Rituals.

    I am now thinking about putting together a second source machine to hold two greater's for when I am chloro. Should look like this

    Crystal Vine (greater), Frozen Deep One Tear (greater), Mystic Surge, Pyro Flare, Living Surge, and Dark Rituals.

    Will this improve my chloro ?

    Cheers

    If you're going to be Chloro, its recommended you get the 2 shielding Greaters Frozen Deep Tear and Hailstone Tideshard. Do NOT get the HoT Greaters as they're completely useless in raid. If your healers can't top off the raid in 8 seconds to get the full effect then there's other things you should be worried about. Shielding Greaters add to the effective health of the raid which could possibly prevent them getting 1shot from an AoE.

    When I Chloro I often switch between my BiS SP Core, or my Shielding Core + Trinket (Alsbeth Trinket) depending on the fight, whether instagib mechanics are more prevalent such as Hylas, or bigger heals are more important such as Sicaron.

    You primarily want to use the shielding greaters for raid heals, as you can't control who it procs on, making the shields slightly less useful for MT heals (though I still need to do a few controlled tests on this).

    I am not 100 percent convinced that Token of Warding is worth it simply due to the low proc rate. Though given my conversations with some raid -icars it may be. Good luck getting it if you go for it.

    I know Frozen Deep One Tear + Hailstone Tideshard stack, as do 2x FDOTs from different characters, but can you stack 2x FDOTs in one sigil and have them both proc?

    The Token of Warding procs at the same rate as the shielding essences, ~4 second ICD.

    Indeed they do. I'm pretty sure all shields other than the Puri ones stack indefinitely.
