    Default HK Itemization Check

    Providing there is a PTS update tomorrow, 4/10, Raidmare will have two new boxes to pick that have the actual loot drops from HK in them split into DPS and Tanks per the usual. As such, we'd love to have your feedback on these items and how they compare with the previous tier!

    Feedback should consist of the names of the two items being compared for sake of saving time. Just saying the cleric tank ring doesn't have enough endurance means that we have to do several lookups and comparisons between multiple rings to find the offending item and the item that it was compared to.

    For sake of where there might be items missing that were in the previous tier, please include the name of the item(s) and the role they are designed for. I.e. rogue single target healing trinket, etc.

    You can post feedback in this thread or PM me directly. =)

    Edit: The upgrade paths are not there. Just want to get feedback on the stat distribution on the base items. Also, you can only reply to this thread if you are allowed to post in this forum so either PM me the feedback or have your guild representative compile a list to post.

    STAT ISSUE: Not big enough of an upgrade over Dreambreaker's Earring
    COMPARISON GEAR: Dreambreaker's Earring(CP Version)
    SOLUTION: ADditional 5% stats needed.


    Summary:
    Almost all the items are undertuned. As a baseline comparison I took the stats of Tier 1 epic gear to Tier 2 epic gear which is 10% stronger. So I want every upgrade in HK to be at least 10% stronger than the item I have from Tier 1. Roughly Equivalent or weaker stats are unacceptable for me.

    Overall you did way too many Spell CRitical Hit items. We don't want spell critical hit items for 2 reasons:
    1) It's added rng
    2) The amount you SC include on these items is severely undertuned since Storm Legion. Either lower the amount of SC needed for 1% crit or up the amount of SC you add on items that drop.

    No double stat items. I like having non shop set items that have multiple stats. They are desirable non weapon drops in raids.

    ITEM NAME: Chain of Tabard Duty
    CALLING: Cleric
    SLOT: Chest
    ROLE: Tank
    STAT ISSUE: Guard value only increases by 1 from t1 value and has 2 less intelligence than t1 chest
    COMPARISON GEAR: Frost Keeper's Harbergeon

    ITEM NAME: Bindings of Runic Warding
    CALLING: Cleric
    SLOT: Belt
    ROLE: Tank
    STAT ISSUE: Same intelligence value as t1 item (yes int is practically useless for cleric tanks but seems weird every other item has an int increase)
    COMPARISON GEAR: Frost Keeper's Waistband

    ITEM NAME: Worn Shield Ring
    CALLING: Cleric
    SLOT: Ring
    ROLE: Tank
    STAT ISSUE: Only an 8 wisdom upgrade and loses 14 intelligence. Also a dodge ring. Less dodge stat on clerics pls
    COMPARISON GEAR: Ungolok's Protective Hoop

    Item Name: Mantle of Restless Spirits
    Calling: Cleric
    Slot: Shoulders
    Role: Dps
    Stat issue: The stat weights for the wisdom and spc gain weigh up to around 200 compared to the 211 from crit power on the store/jino shoulders. This is even with a max roll dream orb on the t2 shoulders. Since there's no hit on these shoulders these are practically worthless for a dps or a healer who is using purple t1. (Let alone relic shoulders)
    Comparison Gear: Frost Keeper's Deflectors

    Item Name: Divine Linked Guards
    Slot: Pants
    Role: Dps
    Stat issue: Has 228 endurance. T1 store ones have 235 and Arc Welded Mesh pants from Pumpkin has 271 (unusually high)
    Comparison Gear: Frost Keeper Chausses

    Item Name: Waistguard of Carnage
    Slot: Belt
    Role Dps
    Stat issue: has 289 wisdom compared to t1 store which is 277 ( Seems a bit of a low upgrade). The duel stat t1 belt (Johan) compared to this - you gain a flat 32 sp and 50 wisdom (35 sp and 25 spc) - so for a total of 77 sp and 25 sc you lose 127 cp. This is not good for a dps cleric.
    Comparison Gear: Akanium Chain Girdle/ Frost Keepers Culet

    Item Name: Crown of the Dwarven King
    Slot: Helm
    Role: Dps
    Stat Issue : Exactly the same issue as shoulders have - the wisdom and spc gain don't outweigh the crit power loss thus making it a downgrade from t1 epic shoulders. This item would literally only be used for akylios since it does have a hit upgrade.

    ITEM NAME: Amulet of the Souless
    CALLING: Rogue
    SLOT: Neck
    ROLE: DPS
    STAT ISSUE: Only neck we can get would be phys crit.
    COMPARISON GEAR: Don't need one

    ITEM NAME: Slinker's Boujie
    CALLING: Rogue
    SLOT: Ring
    ROLE: DPS
    STAT ISSUE: Again Phys Crit, pc is just bad for a stat on anything now, unless it can be changed out with another piece such as vendor gear.
    COMPARISON GEAR: Don't need one

    Also currently the upgrade from mark gear to relic does not need a heart, which is fanastic imo but may not be what is intended.

    Also where my Golem Inductor at bro?

    Also since this is suppose to be a short tier do we plan on seeing 3 drops per boss like OG HK or back down to 2 like we saw in testing? Its gonna be hard to gear our people for T3 being a short tier and bosses having 13-14 item on their loot table.

    ITEM NAME: Test Warrior DPS Blade, Rune-Forged Bloodletter
    CALLING: Warrior
    SLOT: Mainhand, Offhand
    ROLE: DPS
    STAT ISSUE: Overall a stat decrease compared to Fist of Threngar, no proc either, just a small weapon DPS increase.
    COMPARISON GEAR: Fist of Threngar


    ITEM NAME: Girdle of Runed Might
    CALLING: Warrior
    SLOT: Belt
    ROLE: DPS
    STAT ISSUE: Overall worse stats than the double stat belt from TF.
    COMPARISON GEAR: Akvanium Embossed Plate Girdle


    ITEM NAME: Rifle of the Lost Prince
    CALLING: Warrior
    SLOT: Range Weapon
    ROLE: DPS
    STAT ISSUE: Has less AP than Finric's Fate, just a slight Strength + Dexterity (and weapon dps, which is irrelevant for warriors) increase and no proc either. This will make the weapon worse than Finric's Fate.
    COMPARISON GEAR: Finric's Fate


    ITEM NAME: Pauldrons of Chained Souls
    CALLING: Warrior
    SLOT: Shoulders

    ITEM NAME: Gauntlets of Unholy Rituals

    SLOT: Gloves
    ROLE: DPS
    STAT ISSUE: 42 CP less than previous tier epic gloves. Overall a stat decrease if you have relic T1 gloves.
    COMPARISON GEAR: Frostkeeper's Vambraces

    ITEM NAME: Berserker's Ring
    CALLING: Warrior
    SLOT: Ring

    COMPARISON GEAR: Frost Keeper's Armet

    ITEM NAME: Furor of the Untamed
    CALLING: Warrior
    SLOT: Seal
    ROLE: DPS
    STAT ISSUE: Only a miniscule 40 mainstat increase for 230 motes, 18 quest items and some very expensive crafted items seems really underwhelming. Why not add some AP/CP at least?
    COMPARISON GEAR: Furor of the Untamed

    Especially the new weapons and all the undervauled physical crit items are nothing to get excited about and are no real upgrades.

    Additional thoughts: Everything seems so basic and lackluster, where is the interesting gear we can get excited about? Where is the diversity, where are the exciting procs, where are double stat items? Where is the gear that stands out? Where is the new golem inductor, where are items with low endurance and higher offstat? Give us at least some diversity and dropped items that we can look forward to.

    I took a look at some of these yesterday, and went and had a look again today. I agree with all of these Notes. All very accurate

    Edit : The weapon upgrades should require a Nightmare weapon amender instead of a Tormenting weapon amender.

    This list contains test item HK armor gear(11. April), compared to T2 fragments of madness armor(11. April). I have not taken endurance into the comparison, and i have also taken the stance that T2 raid vendor gear should be better in slot then raid dropped gear.

    ITEM NAME: Crown of the Dwarven King
    CALLING: Cleric
    SLOT: Helmet
    ROLE: DPS
    STAT ISSUE: Too powerfull. The item has 28 more wis and 8 more int (and 5 less spell crit) then the comparison.
    COMPARISON GEAR: Drowned Prophet's Crown (Spell crit version)

    ITEM NAME: Westments of Greed
    CALLING: Cleric
    SLOT: Chest
    ROLE: DPS
    STAT ISSUE: Too powerfull. The item has 8 more wis and 11 more spell power (and 8 less int) then the comparison.
    COMPARISON GEAR: Drowned Prophet's Hauberk (Spell power version)

    ITEM NAME: Waistguard of Carnage
    CALLING: Cleric
    SLOT: Belt
    ROLE: DPS
    STAT ISSUE: A tiny bit too powerfull. The item has 7 more wis and 13 more int (and 7 less spellpower) then the comparison.
    COMPARISON GEAR: Drowned Prophet's Culet (Spell power version)

    ITEM NAME: Divine Linked Guards
    CALLING: Cleric
    SLOT: Legs
    ROLE: DPS
    STAT ISSUE: Too powerfull. The item has 48 more wis (and 18 less int and 5 less sp) then the comparison.
    COMPARISON GEAR: Drowned Prophet's Chausses (Spell power version)

    ITEM NAME: Rusted Mail Boots
    CALLING: Cleric
    SLOT: Feet
    ROLE: DPS
    STAT ISSUE: Too powerfull. The item has 6 more crit power then the comparison.
    COMPARISON GEAR: Drowned Prophet's Boots (Crit power version)

    Armor slots not mention is fine, since the comparison (T2 fragments of horror gear) is equivalent or better.

    Edit:
    As such, we'd love to have your feedback on these items and how they compare with the previous tier!
    just red that , sorry. But yeah, can still use this information when tuning the dropped and raid vendor gear

    ITEM NAME: Runebinding of Revelation
    CALLING: Mage(Warrior, Rogue, Cleric)
    SLOT: Trinket
    ROLE: DPS
    PROC ISSUE: Just at looking at the dot part of the proc says me that the igcd is doubled in comparison with Wrath of Revelation. To bring it to the state of the comparison gear you would have to increase the initial dmg by 230% to bring it to next tier(use the jump from expert to raid trinket proc) you would need an other 70% buff so that the current value would need a bump of 300% to be a worthy raid tier 2 trinket and the dot part would need a 25% buff. This would affect the trinkets of every class.
    COMPARISON GEAR: Wrath of Revelation

    As a reason to do Crcuia HM later or not punish people who did this encounter I would like to see a upgrade path for the HK capes which requires one of the Crucia HM capes so that your HK cape gains the proc of it after the upgrade.

    Well, it is a new tier and that is technically a new tier of upgrade components. It makes perfect sense for T2 gear to be utilizing Tormenting amenders.

    Just logged on after the update and noticed an issue with one of the procs:

    Mordrig, the Dreadnaught's Call relic 2h Cleric hammer has a 1535 Attack power proc instead of Spell Power.

    ITEM NAME: Slinker's Bijou
    CALLING: Rogue
    SLOT: Ring
    ROLE: Dps
    STAT ISSUE: I think it's worse than the T1 rings? Stop putting physcrit on stuff pretty please.
    COMPARISON GEAR: Ungolok's Wrathful Link

    ITEM NAME: Shoulderguards of Torment
    CALLING: Rogue
    SLOT: Shoulders
    ROLE: Dps
    STAT ISSUE: Worse than the T1 shoulders. Seriously, why does physcrit even still exist?
    COMPARISON GEAR: Martrodraum Aknil Spaulders

    ITEM NAME: Striker's Ally
    CALLING: Rogue
    SLOT: Ranged
    ROLE: Dps
    STAT ISSUE: Could use some more AP or just a proc. The lack of one makes it a rather minor upgrade over the upgraded bow from Finric, especially for melee specs.
    COMPARISON GEAR: Rhen Stalker

    ITEM NAME: Amulet of the Souless
    CALLING: Rogue
    SLOT: Amulet
    ROLE: Dps
    STAT ISSUE: *Soulless? Unless that's a clever wordplay on Estrode. It also has physcrit, and physcrit is just bad!
    COMPARISON GEAR: Pod Stomper Talisman. Or the warrior amulet, I think I'd even take that one instead.

    ITEM NAME: Hood of the Fallen
    CALLING: Rogue
    SLOT: Helm
    ROLE: Dps
    STAT ISSUE: I think I've stated what I think of physcrit.
    COMPARISON GEAR: Any T1 helm.

    ITEM NAME: Grips of the Runemender
    CALLING: Rogue
    SLOT: Gloves
    ROLE: Dps
    STAT ISSUE: Has less CP than the T1 vendor ones.
    COMPARISON GEAR: Frost Keeper's Gloves

    ITEM NAME: Cloak of Hushed Tidings
    CALLING: Rogue
    SLOT: Cape
    ROLE: Dps
    STAT ISSUE: Could maybe use a little bit more stats to be competitive with the PVP capes or just a bigger upgrade in general
    COMPARISON GEAR: Scaled Claw Cape, Dreambreaker Shroud


    I'm also not seeing a second weapon atm. Rogues always have a harder time gearing up because they don't get a 2hander, and I would really like if this tier would have more than 1 epic and 1 relic onehander. I know T1 has a healing one but that one seems to drop really rarely. With the amount of bosses Hammerknell has, it's surely possible to fit 2 epic DPS weapons and 1 healing one in somewhere in addition to the relic drop from Akylios. Right now it just feels unfair, compared to Clerics/Mages especially.
