I have reason to believe I'll be able to make a first age soon(days to weeks). I was gonna make a hunters bow am thinking about a minstrel book. I raid with my minstrel far more than I run my hunter. My 2nd age songbook has 4 majors and I'm not sure I'd use the 1st age book if I only got 3 majors on it.
What chances are there of getting 4 majors? How much additional healing do I get from a 1st age book VS a 2nd age just due to the higher tactical cap?
My current hunter bow only has 3 majors so it'd be a lock that the new bow would be better.
As a 2ndary question: How many peeps roll without the healing cost on their songbooks? I generally don't have a lot of power issues but I ran Fire/Frost this weekend without an LM and I had to be much more proactive about using my coda to return power than I'd like to be. I guess if I don't get 4 majors I cold take a will legacy to maybe offset this a bit.
