A few nights ago my guild got FttLM T2 done which finally gave me access to the greater erebor gear which i had saved up barter items for, mainly just for the increased stats. Anyway after buying 4 pieces of the gear, so i could keep my hytbold 2 set bonus, one of the other main wardens in my guild asked if the 4 set bonus was working as he said it was bugged on bullroarer so i went to test it out.
First thing i noticed is that after 15mins of spamming convictions on some guildies in snowbourn it hadn’t procced which lead me to wondering if it only procced during combat. So we went off and found an orc outside of snowbourn and i just stated conviction spamming again and sure enough it procced.
Now i will give devs their due here making it only proc inside combat is a good idea so that we cant waste it while prepping for a fight as it has an 80 seconds CD. But the bit i am disappointed with is that the proc only healed me for 184 per group member it hit (so I could achieve a maximum of 184x6 heals), to give a little perspective for others as to my incoming/outgoing heal my conviction normally heals me for about 470 non crit (sorry i cant give actual inc/out figures as im currently not at my PC with lotro on it). I have to admit this is incredibly underwhelming that every 80 seconds i "might" get an extra heal of 1104 which i have no way of controlling to heal me when i need it. I would have much preferred a set bonus such as the 4 set from orthanc or even something along the lines of shield mastery has chance to give extra crit defence (stacks with rings).
All i can say is i am just very disappointed with how underwhelming the set bonuses are on this our current top level gear.
