    Default Typhoon, Vulcanist, and Maelstrom

    These are the ranged primalist souls. Primalist primary stats being: Dex, Attack Power, and what, Physical Crit or Crit Power? What about spell power since these 3 souls are ranged and use spells for damage?

    I ask because I've got several physical crit items I could use but not sure they will affect my character. However, it appears that my gear is giving me physical crit, some spell power, and crit power already. Reading the descriptions of what each stat says it does, physical crit says "chance to increase martial critical hits", spell power says "increases damage and healing of spell casters", and crit power says "adds extra % to damage or healing ciritical hits", and just for reference spell crit says "increases chance for spell casters to critically by %".

    So all that said and spelled out, which of those 4 stats are going to affect the 3 ranged souls since they are spells and not "martial" abiltiies. Do these souls fall into physical still or are they of the caster kind?

    SP, spell crit, Wis, and Int are completely useless to Prims (and rogues and warrs).
    Different stats based on ranged/melee is not a thing in RIFT.

    You want, in this order

    Crit power
    Attack Power
    Dextrity
    Physical Crit

    Abandon all other stats unless you're tanking or healing.

    Don't worry about endurance either unless you're tanking.

    Thank you very much guys for your responses and clarity. I also appreciate the succinct aspect of each of you who responded. There was no conjecture and no "hear say".

    In addition to gear to focus on, it has helped me address which greater essences to get regarding physical or spell damage. Thank you Orochan for the priority list!!

    I know this thread is dated, however I misplaced it in my inbox and only came across it by "chance", browsing the forums. Again, thank you.
