    Default Question about ID

    so i heard a rumor that for ID you have to have a diffrent elemenal sigil for each wing of ID fire for fire water for water ect. if so i guess the fire sigil will be coming?

    Since when is there a water wing in ID?

    Edit: to stay on topic, I think that different elemental sigils are recommended and almost required to make it through when the raid is first being released, since it'll (hopefully) be really hard at first. But it isn't like you can't go in there without one of these sigils.

    Yeah to be able to tackle the content when it comes out you're going to need to have those, altough it technically seen isn't required.

    It's just going to be - hopefully - almost impossible without them.

    They got hit by water damage, you are mistaken. They may have proved that ultimately it wasn't needed but their guild likely would have killed it sooner if more people had been less of a liability and built a WR core.

    Nobody really knows for sure, but guilds who intend to progress in ID on Day 1 have farmed a complete earth and a complete fire resist sigil for ALL raid members.

    Personally, I don't think it will be a necessity like the Garau encounter, but a full resist sigil will probably make a significant difference in pre-nerf ID.

    Depending on the encounter, my understanding is tanks found more midigation in maxing physical resistance rather than worrying about elemental resistance.

    But to anwser your question, non-tanks want to get an earth sigil and a fire sigil with as much resistance on each as possible. Endurance and resist PA's will also help, we are all going with endurance (+aug) seals as well.

    I doubt you HAVE to have one, there's very little specific gear you HAVE to have.

    You also can wait 2 months and probably go in there with blues after trion swings the Nerf bat.

    On day 1, I'm assuming it'll be very, very helpful - although probably not strictly necessary - to have a full fire and a full earth resist sigil to hand.

    No doubt it'll become less and less important as people gear up, get more HP, healers start to heal more, and people DPS hard enough to be able to start pushing past mechanics. Think about Inwar Darktide, where his stacking buff acts as a de facto enrage timer - loads of resists mean you can survive one, maybe two more Dark Tides, but once you can DPS him hard enough, you don't even encounter the point where you need all that resistance.

    Generally, though, more resists on elemental-heavy fights will mean less need to over-heal encounters, which means more DPS, which means bosses die faster and there's less margin for error. The aim should always be to go with just enough healing to stop people getting killed constantly - any more than that is a waste of potential DPS.

    No... They did have different elemental engines and people like me who already have multiple engines were frustrated at the thought of having wasted hundreds of inscribed stones only to have other people get better engines w\ +20 resist..

    On PTS now they have +20 resist runes you can buy that can be applied to sigils/engines. The cost on PST is 60 Inscribed Source Stones and 30,000 planarite each.

    I think what you heard was people thinking that if you didn't know that ID will be Fire and Earth based then any concern you have about building a Resistance Engine is probably moot anyway.
