    Default T3 synergy crystals: first look.

    Took screenshots of these on the PTS. They look pretty terrible for us in general. Some are obviously unfinished.

    The Saboteur 4 piece bonus is pretty sick, though. Like a free mini-Blade Tempo every 30 seconds. Sabodancer is going to be amazing in HK, methinks.

    the 2p bladedancer one is extremely op, so much so that it makes nearly all the rest look horrible.

    If the stack refreshes itself, it certainly will be. Even at 1%, that's +20% AP permanently...a bit ridiculous.

    Bladedancer definitely OP. Depending on what the Ranger 2p is, could be good news for melee Ranger as well. Bard seems decent as well.

    Let's just thank Christ that they got rid of twinking. It truly lacked any skill to twink.

    Would be nice if the values weren't showing as 0 on some of the tooltips...

    The 4 piece Nightblade seems nice, since it is essentially giving 50% more damage. Some PvP specs might be benefiting from that quite a bit.
    Sonora - 50 Rogue - 8 Bladedancer/51 Riftstalker/7 Ranger - All round tank build.
    Teralia - 50 Warrior - 22 Reaver/24 Warlord/20 Paladin - A fun to play AoE threat build.
    Karis - 46 Mage - 24 Chloromancer/27 Pyromancer/10 Warlock - A high burst support heal PvP/Solo build.
    Tarille - 50 Cleric - 5 Templar/27 Warden/34 Sentinel - A powerful AoE healing PvP build.

    You think those are bad? Do you even play rogue? These are amazing.

    Trion is ******ed... depending on the refresh timer the BD synergy crystal is going to be the best for almost every spec.

    you mus raid with a different rogue than i do. These crystals are not for pvp sets, this is the next teir of raiding gear. With that in mind the the 2p BD bonus is insanely better than all the others for dps. 4p RS looks good. Assassin looks interesting and the 2p should be a talent imo.

    Here's to hoping they add synergy crystals for PvP sets?

    Yes. And yes, most of them are bad. Specifically, these:

    Sab 2pc
    Sin 2pc
    Bard 2pc
    Rift 2pc
    Ranger 4pc
    BD 4pc
    MM 4pc

    So fully half of them are bad, whether underpowered or inappropriate for raiding. Cuz, y'know, this is raid armor.

    Sabo 2-piece is trash, 4-peice is remarkably OP. Given that Blade Tempo in Sabdancer typically only covers 2 sets of charges anyway, you now get Blade Tempo every 30 seconds instead of every 2 minutes -- just hit Incrim right before you detonate, then slap the next set of charges on and detonate them.

    Bladedancer 2-piece is also incredibly OP, as noted.

    Riftstalker ones could be awesome, depending on final numbers. Stalkers finally get quicker AoE threat via shortened Disturbance cooldown, and we now have a reason to use Blitz for things other than opening AoE pulls.
