    Where's your FATE at?

    At what point does FATE diminishing return for ICPR make it not worth it anymore?
    What is a good point to stop caring about FATE?
    do you really care at all about FATE or is better just stacking some ICPR items?

    Atm i'm at 1500 will 900 vit 500 fate unbuffed, if i cycle anthem of comp + coda i can go on forever but that makes it impossible to keep 3+ anthems up all time. Usually I use potion early in the fight and start using comp only when power start dropping below 30%, and that is after about 6-8 min of fightning, less if i have to spam IF

    Re: Where's your FATE at?

    I used to stack vitality and morale within reason but with crazy cappy buffs these days I'm moving towards:

    1) will
    2) tact mastery
    3) tact crit
    4) Vitality
    5) ICPR
    6) Morale

    4,5,6 aren't a lock. I think most raid groups would prefer bigger heals and would be happy to feed you power to get them. If you running without a LM you may need to make some changes. Like perhaps use the instrument with 20% power reduction instead of 12(with 20% crits).

    And in parallel you gotta worry about your tact resistance. I like to be 38+ without buffs. I used to be 10k morale buffed but have let myself fall to 8k(thou I think this may be a bit cappy related). With the current locks being dps races the desire to bring fewer healers requires bigger heals from the ones that come. Also, if you have extra time the anthems can really help the group as well. I just feel that being able to heal without power feeds is low priority to me now. That said you shouldn't be needing constant attention and you should be helping with power pots whenever its off timer.

    Also, get your bubble on before the fight starts and you'll get that power surge when it wears off and be a bit more safe if a stay shot goes the wrong way when the fight starts. Seems like the lightning and acid boss both like to lob gernades into the group to start the fight.

    I like it between 3-400. The benefits above that don't show much.

    I look at it as Will gets me tac mastery, so I would pick a jewelery item with +crit instead of the same item with +tact mastery.

    I use my T6 extraordinary relics for +morale/power and icpr (2 trees, encircling seas). Those are the more expensive ones but the benefits are worth it, when you can avoid fate heavy items for Will/vit/crit.

    Fate is now around 400 and having fate instead of vit on any jewelry is a deal breaker for me.

    I roll 1000-1100 Vit / 1500-1600 Will.

    My crit and ICPR are both higher than Mirk with 650 Fate because of the raw stats on items.

    Fate is on it's last leg, give it a swift kick to the curb and be done with it.

    Abut 400. Sits around 700 in my Max DPS build but that is where I totally ignore Finesse and Vit, etc...


    Fate isn't utterly useless. It still does affect Tact Crit Mag...but there are no good pieces with Fate on them.

    You ignore Finesse in a max DPS build?

    You don't use Finesse to DPS end-game and in the moors??? That seems illogical to me, care to explain why?
