    Default Good General and Rogue Oriented Planar Attunement Guides?

    I am looking for a good guide (or guides) that explain planar attunement generally, and also some specific guides for rogues and planar attunement.

    This looks like a very cool system (which I just unlocked by dinging 50 on my rogue). I want to learn more before I jump in.

    Thanks!

    I think there is one in the general guide forums somewhere but basically:

    * All T1 planar charge increases if you plan to raid [ purple hexes ]
    * Improved Break Free in PvP tree (T1)
    * (DPS) All AP bonuses for the weapon types you are using, primarily ranged weapon based as you will always have one equipped. [ red hexes ]
    * (DPS) Planar AP weapon enchants (honed edge/similar) in fire tree (T2/T3)
    * Multi stat bonuses in Earth tree [ blue hexes ]
    * (DPS) Dexterity hexes (check the tooltips for each tree to see which give Dexterity) [ blue hexes ]
    * (Tank) Endurance hexes (check the tooltips for each tree to see which give Endurance) [ blue hexes ]
    * (Tank) Planar Dex weapon enchant in Air tree (T2/T3)
    * (Tank) Planar End glove enchant in Water tree (T3)
    * T3 planar charge regen abilities/increases [ purple hexes, Planar Surge, Sacrifice Life: Planar Charge ]

    that's pretty much it, aside from maybe some other cool stuff. For other classes you mostly replace Dexterity with their primary stat, and AP with SP for casters.

    Just to add to the above list, which is very good. I wish I would have known earlier about Vampiric Essence in the Death tier 2. Very good for melee solo builds for a little extra healing.

    The most important thing is to go into the third tier PvP pa and pick up the reduced cool down of anathema. That 1 second is make or break.

    I am going to assume you are joking here. :P

    For n00bs like me, unclear jokes can actually be very confusing.

    Lots of people have been serious about things throughout time. None have been more serious than I am right now about the 1 second cool down reduction of anathema being the single greatest thing that mankind has ever seen. There are no words I can string together to accurately describe the level of seriousness I am at this very moment.

    It really does make me wonder if whoever decided to put that in has ever played a Rogue before. Honestly, it's baffling.

    Any other real advice on planar attunement, or links to guides?

    Can you respec? If so where and how expensive?

    I want to make sure I fully understand the system before I jump in.

    A lot of guides I found online are out of date and clearly explain a previous version of this system.

    You change your PA at your designated class trainer.
    You're first respect is free after that every respect is 100 plat.
    The old PA cap was 1079 which allowed you to 100% complete all of PA, now its a little higher with the new 4 new sections added.

    TL&DR version: Fill all the trees.
