    Mini Maxing

    Hey all! I play a minstrel as my main and since he's my only toon my kin uses in raids, I decided to "mini-max" him this update rather than split my time up over four 85 toons. I figured if I'm only going to raid with him, I might as well deck him out as much as possible.

    I'm wondering how many others are doing the same with their minis and what might I be missing out on. I'm not on the right computer at the moment (at school) but I'll load up some screenshots of my build and swap books, armor sets, etc. once I get home and take the screenshots and update this post with my build . I'm also interested in other people's mastery, crit, mits (though most people's are capped or close), resistance and things like relics and legacies. Did you choose the 4 Hytbold/2 Erebor set, maybe the 2 Erebor/2 Greater Erebor/ 2 gold items? I wanna know it all



    The pic above shows my swap books, the rings I wear when I am healing, the CtG set from OD and my healing book and sword. My healing sword is still a 75 2nd ager but I'll be upgrading it soon. I gotten into swapping LI's around so I've put all my CD legacies on my swap items to make room for other things (sometimes only stat legs but every little bit helps). I've also put the inc healing debuff settings on both for pvp since they stack and put on mastery relics to mitigate the losses in healing on hots that pop up while swapping.




    Above is the basic build I run around with. I've turned my brain to mush trying to get the school/library ring (300+ runs so far) and haven't had any luck. I'm also trying to get the Horse-Lord's gold pocket item. As for the items I didn't link in the pic (for lack of room) they are as follows:

    Bracelets: 162 Will 463 Morale 816 Crit
    Pocket:150 Will 75 Vitality and 384 Crit
    Rings Sunbrand Sage and Wyrmfire Sage
    Shield Malledhrim Minstrel's Shield

    All the screenshots are without external or internal buffs.

    I'll be eagerly awaiting your screenshots, my minstrel has been 85 for a while now but I've had little time to play her and have a low amount of knowledge regarding gear for will classes.

    Mastery/Mitigations/Crit comes very easily with even low end gear however I am slacking greatly on my morale, I do need to finish my relics though which should help a lot.

    how can u have that high outgoing healing with the same amount of tactical mastery as i have ?
    Are u adding the 10% from hytbold over your outgoing healing ?
    As there are dimishing returns and so on.. u wont actually get +10%, its nearly 6-7% extra.

    Yes I'm adding the Hytbold Watcher bonus.

    Isn't it +10% outgoing healing that stacks with your current outgoing healing? Diminishing returns only affect rating-based stats, not direct % increases. If it doesn't stack that means it works differently from every other bonus in the game...

    But I haven't actually used that set yet, since I only completed Smaug yesterday (was wearing 4 Song-Protector + 2 Watcher until now). But it's what I plan on buying this afternoon once I get home.
