    http://rift.zam.com/en/item/F5A5E3E8...Blood#Comments

    Im shopping for new greater's for my nb/sin/rng spec and is wondering if this is better then waning?

    Im not too impressed with the physical greater's at all. What do you guys use?

    Rare planar goods vendor in Shimersand. I purchased it today but I'm not sure how effective it is. I also found a lower level rare greater that procs for something like +120 and heal for +170, so I'm assuming the vampire blood procs more often?

    I can show you parses, but it's easier to tell you straight up.

    CVB only adds 1% dmg...ever.

    Same with Mortous ****** Shard ( one that proccs an additional melee combat hit )...except it's worse...as its melee white hit procc only....no Trick Shot multi proccs like CVB.

    The 42 crit one is perma up however you can put lesser planar essence in the greater slots, The 19 crit 17 dex one in all 6 slots seems best.

    It's only good for melee, and even then the internal CD makes it pretty bad.

    Edit: Also, the ICD is global so it gets ONE proc per ICD, even if you're AoEing.


    Double edit: I use all lesser essences. I believe 84 str, 101 dex, 109 crit? Can't log in for about an hour so I can't grab the real numbers.

    over about the entire day of me dps'ing its a 7.5dps contribution, so really depends on how much stats are going to add, but 1 slot isn't likely going to give you a straight 7.5dps increase like this does, that would be quite a bit of attack power or crit...
    (this is on a ranger)

    edit: to put it into perspective, crystalized vampire blood adds 7.5dps, while virulent poison adds 1.98dps for a ranger

    CVB does not add 7.5 DPS for a Ranger. It has a lower proc rate than poisons, and it's weaker.


    I'm pretty sure I'd take 36 Crit and 13 attack over some crappy proc.

    Pretty sure i've seen mine proc multiple times off rift disturbance, the proc rate isn't that bad either and its not like there are many choices anyway, attack power is close to worthless and you can't use 2 of the crit ones.

    I wish physical greater essences weren't that bad though, just look at what healers get (healing essences should work with leeching poison and enduring brew, would make assassins more fun and viable).

    being that i am a ranger and i use it, and i have been using it for several million damage, yes.. yes it does.

    Guys, I might slightly OT, but since we are discussing about planar essences...

    What greater essence are you suggesting for a Ranged dps soul.

    I believe that comes to 1.95%, 9% dps would have come to around 225,000 damage for the 2.5million....

    It does not. Tested with Rain of Arrows.


    All greater essences, for rogue DPS, are bad.

    Go parse the poisons.

    That proc is worthless. Edit: For rDPS. For melee it's simply another poison.
