    Default Reforge DPS or Haste?

    If one has 200 in DPS, 200 in Haste and 600 MA. Between DPS and Haste...which would you use for reforge and what would you reforge it too?

    I've seen a mix by looking up some profiles of regular posters here on Eq2U. Just wondering peeps thought process on this.

    edit: What I am referring to is anything extra over the soft caps. Right now my DPS is sitting a little over 200, my MA is 601 and my Haste is 371 because I've just been leaving it and letting it bleed into flurry even though the conversion is pretty lousy.

    reforge haste to MA and take the deagro line. it's pretty amazing for brig or at least when i spec mine it was pretty good.

    another viable option is AE attack but.. my brig just doesn't get as much from AE attack as my assassin.

    You shouldn't be reforging away from dps mod because I'm 110% positive you specced the full left line in prestige.

    Oh crap

    Well no. Right for CB. I'm the trusting type so I'm hoping you are offering your opinion in good faith, but AA spec'd based on what I had read in some of the stickied threads especially based on what Terrell had posted.

    I guess basically what I am asking is whether the increase in dmg over the DPS cap will yeild better returns than the increase in flurry that results from Haste cap. Or if neither is the best judicial use of the extra stats, should I be putting them somewhere else such as re-use to get my more productive CAs refreshed quicker? I already have been using MA over 600 to remove MA adorns and replace them with the yellow CBs.

    flurry conversion is nice but no were near what the DPS mod gives you. going from 200 to 300 is a 10% boost.. that's 10% to ALL your current MA/flurry/aoe auto attack.

    10% to ALL auto >>>>>>>>>>>>> 20 flurry

    also.. i tried the other side and sadly it's vastly inferior to the dehate side sucks too cos that's a nice ass CA

    I thought dps was straight up capped at 200 = 125%, any more and it still just said 125% for me. Also, totally my bad for bringing back an 8 month old post. I know some people get irritated about that.

    Necro ftl...

    But yeah Zek 200 = 125%, but 300 = 135%. I think you have to get to 500 to get 145% though.


    With no regards to Prestige conversions, I think once you get to 300 DPS it might be wiser to go after Haste, but I can't find the accurate Haste to flurry conversion---it used to be shit, but now I know that when I use our Haste temp it raises my Flurry by 2ish. And if ~44% haste is 2 flurry, then it's safe to assume that 100% is 5%. Which isn't bad.

    With regards to prestige conversions, stick with DPS mod. Most people spec for the DPS -> Potency conversion (left side), and it doesn't hurt to have as much DPS mod as possible anyway so...


    note: Solo I have 200 haste and 500 DPS. Works for me but I'm not amazing. Someone else chime in if they have found better results, I'd like to know.
    Nerds, the lot of them
