you could. but no new shields. and theyre about 3-4% better than circus weapons. so if thats worth it to you then by all means. there is much much more for PW armors coming as well to enchant it up more. you can get the item in game by killing the new bosses. (which are apparently hard)

theyre making an item to move a +20 to 25 from a weapon to another weapon. no word yet on if its CS or in game.

if you have a specific question about something i may be able to answer it. ive been reading up on the new epic some when i have time.

I saw no compelling reason to switch to PW armor last time I seriously played as a circus weapon/UG armor was adequate.  While there's a lot of things I like about rappelz (enough where I played it for years), the "replace your gear is your new content" system the last couple of epics just felt forced.

Things like the arena were steps in the right direction and work, but they could have put more development into it.  Same idea with sieges which lost their luster when master classes and T1/T2/T3 scaling made killing cores trivial.  Sieges were the entire reason I played rappelz.  Well, that and horizon.

2 hour sieges is what kept me in the game for so long. And hoping for those days to come back when you really think how easy of a fix that is. Sad sad world we live in. But i get why they did the replacing gear thing. Population is dropping a lot and less money coming in so getting people more forced for that money is what they need.

Hesa the new island weaps are for 170+ anyway, so your circ weaps.are fine. You do need the PW gear though, its just better. The good thing is ots not too hard to find. With the helm and glove/boots updates adding plus 1 to skills or the glove and boot bump are really a pretty big deal. Its odd that this update says its a Saturday update....id think they would bump it to the reg Monday night one but who knows. You really uavent played since the last update so unless your gonna log soon ROTA will be off limits since its getting bumped to a 170+ dungeon and ypu can no longer feather in to it.

What's in ROTA?  I should grab my weapons back from Tash at some point.

The problem with UW gear when I stopped playing regularly is that the drop rate was abysmal.  Getting a +1 skill would have been nice, but it would have come at the cost of other stats like evasion or macc.  I'm not willing to trade 170 evasion for +1 fear trap, that's silly.  If I wanted a pair of UW boots with +1 fear trap, +170 evasion, +18% block% and 3 slots, well, I might as well buy a lotto ticket, my odds are the same.

So while in theory UW is better, practically speaking UG gear is better because you can obtain the stats you need.  I would need an entire UW set before it became useful, a single piece did me no good.

When UG gear was new, everything you just said would have fit the situation for them...
Now UG gear is cheap and easy like NFF on a Friday night.

Same situation has happened with PW gear while you have been away

I'm sure it has, but the advantage from jumping from my cluster**** of a hotbar with 3 T2 and 3 MC sets to one UG set was a bigger boost in stats than going UG to PW.  I merged 5 builds together into 1 with that UG build @_@

I think here the issue is finding a skill worth it on a Corr. Im not sure one really stands out becuase i dont know much about the class. But the +1 to skills with the helm does help you out a ton. Now on a VM the +1 to crystal aura stat from PW gear makes your class beyond strong. but with the new gear you can use any helm you wish and + it up to your choosing.

The PW skill bonus's for corruptor are simply disappointing...that I do know because a tried a few a couple months ago.....the one people mostly say is best is Occultism....so I got a full set of PW gear with that stat....and I actually lost wisdom and HP compared to my old gear....the damage was about the same....so yea...I dunno what the fck that was about...but that was my result...

I'm with you Hesa....the positibes from the new gear aren't anywhere near the time, effort, and possible cash it would take to make +20 or whatever

possibly +21 gloves with the 25% cast speed boost is something that will benefit your class. also your helm can do what the armors can do. you can get any helm to +20. I still use a medusa helm on my templar.

I think you can get putrefy to instacast at some point, which might be worthwhile.

Fairly certain I only have 5 TP and they added a couple really tedious ways to get more.

The 170 tp is simple...the 160 tp is just a pain in the ass. I didnt even bother finishing the 160 as the 7th tp does me no good as a mage ol. But get in hesa and try to gain some ground before your locked out of rota.

What times do you regularly play Tash?

So I patched and popped in and noticed a few things:
  • I'm broke
  • All the PW gear in the AH is terrible, I'm much better off sticking with UG
  • Random people I don't recognize seem to enjoy doing one hits with tectonic spike on people returning.  Great for the health of the game.
  • Persian has wings in the trading post I want but couldn't afford
How long does it take to go from 167 to 170 in ROTA?

If you want to really you could do that in a day. Tectonic spike has always been there for that same purpose. Game is a sad sad game. You should not waste your time. Managed to leave, dont come back.

It takes the same time as not used to....because it's not a matter of time, per say....it's a matter of how many parties you can get, how successful they are, and if there is an exp event going on

They better fix cardinal. I've been participating in the topic on the Rappelz forum because it just sucks right now.

The problem with PW gear is that it's hard to find the right stats and the right skill which is the dilemma I am having right now on my merc. It's either one or the other. Like the Wild Stream gloves I managed to get from using Power of Change, doesn't have ACC and has 2 slots, so I have to figure out where to get more ACC and the lost annihilation stone. I was thinking about selling the gloves and waiting to see if they nerf it anyway.
