Long-time player, short-time minstrel player. I started my minnie last Summer and got him up to 32 or so, and then stopped playing him for awhile. Picked him up a couple of weeks ago to figure out all of the RoI changes(keep in mind I wasn't that familiar with the class to begin with).
I have two questions:
1. Is Anthem of the Third Age(Harmony Stance) pointless? It looks like its only benefit is a power reduction cost for further anthems, but seeing as how it costs power itself and the duration is about the same as the CD before I can use another anthem, what's the point? Is there something I'm missing with this skill?
2. I mostly have the Great Barrow Light Armor set, which is level 25. My minstrel is level 36 now, and apart from some minor benefits with the stat bonuses I have not found better armor by this level judging by the armor bonuses alone. I'm looking at on-level Purple armor pieces, and they're still giving a decent bit less armor than the gear I'm wearing. Does anyone know if this is a known issue?
