    DPS impact of starlight crystals on 100 items?

    Should I burn crystals on my 100 first age?

    I recall it wasn't worth it for 95 second age, as the change to highest damage was just 2, so DPS only increased 1. Does anyone have actual damage numbers pre-crystal and post crystal for one-handers? Extra points for first age, but second age would help folks too.

    So the answer is again crystals are so tiny that they are pointless, each crystal basically providing one point of DPS (raising the damage range half a point to two):

    239 SA w/0 crystals
    242 SA w/3 crystals

    244 FA w/0 crystals 348-580
    247 FA w/3 crystals 352-587

    (level 100 one handers)

    Let it also be noticed that star-crystals affect passive bonuses, too. For example, my staff has a Morale, Critical, and Tact Mitigation bonus- all three were boosted with star crystal additions, as well as the tactical damage rating.

    In short, yes, they are worth it if you are a hard-core raider, or PvPer. No, they aren't worth buying.

    That's a given, but sadly that doesn't apply so much to one-handers. Just like most legacies are not affected (only ratings based ones, not cooldown or percentage based legacies, which more of the new ones are).

    It would be nice if star-lits actually did something truly impactful, other than waste a slot in loot tables. They should be yellow common value items instead of teal, given their lack of potency/usefulness.

    PS: Speaking from experience, they have absolutely no impact in a raid whatsoever.

    it also increase the minor tier legacies (vit agility etc) but only a few points really a difference you get only if you have a staff/2hand weapon with passive stats plus atleast 2 minor tier legacy

    There is actually a different way to look at this. If the actual gain is 3 dps from 3 crystals, you don't have to level it to the full amount. However the amount of points left over usually at max will level 3 to 4 legacies to max. If you add the 3 crystals and level the dps of the weapon to the max before the crystals benefit (239) the amount of points saved will allow you to max more of the legacies you have in the weapon. If you have a good amount of dps legacies you will increase your dps more than the 3 added to the top number of the weapon.
