    Default Stat Shuffle

    Hi all

    I am doing a complete stat review for my brigand with whom i am looking to do x4 content and hopefully some of the challange mode x4's.

    I am looking to white adorn (and hunt for yellow/red adorns) as i cant reforge as i dont have AoD.
    There is a lot of information on the forums but a lot of them seem to either conflict or be more specific to already equipped high end raids
    My current stats are (self buffed)
    AGI – 4289
    CC – 405% (4 CC white adornments)
    CB – 285%
    POT – 260%
    Ability Mob – 366
    Reuse – 41%
    Casting speed – 26%
    Recovery – 25%

    DPS – 408
    Haste- 209
    MA – 860
    AOE – 22.4
    Accuracy – 8.5
    Flurry – 32.2

    My questions are as follow (basically I am looking to get the most increase in DPS but not sure where to focus)
    • Do I need to Spec for more AGI, have read somewhere that one should aim for 5k.
    • CB appears to be the holy grail, everyone says CB but they all seem to have the other stats sorted out. Shall I just get as much CB and leave the other stats?
    • Ability Mod is very low and I know scouts don’t generally need that much but mine is very low, a fair bit of ability mod can be had with white adornments.
    • Reuse / Casting / Recovery – so much of my DPS comes from melee attacks, will increasing this allow me to cast the big hitters like doubleup/Dust/Dispatch more often?
    • DPS, currently I have a 140% damage increase is this enough or too much?
    • Haste over the soft cap gives flurry, but is the return worth the investment?
    • MA – most people see to reforge away from this in favour of AOE but if I could get to 1000 MA then I would get 7 attacks it is a long way away but I can start working towards it?
    • AOE, everyone says that 100% is a must if you want to be a DPS monster but looks like I will have to reforge to get that and would have to reforge away most of my DPS or MA , so is this a priority?
    • Accuracy – a bit of accuracy seems to be all you need and my hit rate is pretty high even against x4 but would more be that much better?
    • Flurry – well more and more haste is going to give me more of that.
    • Weapon skills, seems a lot of adornments have weapons skills on it and have seem that a lot of scouts get more weapon skills to increase the minimum damage weapons do, but will this really increase my DPS noticeably?
    It is a lot of questions but would really appreacite if the seasoned forum Brigands could give me some advice.

    PS. Will getting AoD be worth the reforge ability? It is a fair whack of cash for only really reforge...

    Reforging away from MA is quite possibly the most retarded reforge any scout could do.

    Also you don't need more than 60% ae auto + wild swings.

    Also get weapon skills/cast speed/mod/agi whites and cb reds/yellows.


    Yes, AoD is worth it if you plan on playing this game for awhile.

    Thanks a lot for the advice.

    Given the limited amount of white adornments that I can have, what would be the first / second / third stat to increase and to what level.
    This can be a bit of a tricky question as there is only so much to be gained from certain slots.

    Does Wild Swings still only drop from the ring wars?

    Afaik it still does. But do enough people still run ring war to get the x4 chest? Storm gorge is more farmable apparently.
