    Arrow Returning questions once again :)

    First of all please excuse my English. Itís not my native language and I havenít been using it quite a long time

    I know Iíll be accused being lazy to Google/search it but Iíve been reading forums, guides quite a long time and I havenít found any complete thread for returning bruiser players. So I am trying to ask few questions in here Iíve been playing EQ2 years ago and I do know that lot of the stuff have changed in game. Some of my questions might be really dumb Ė sorry for them

    1) Is it still worth to do it mythical weapon and what to use to secondary slot (3s weapon?)

    2) What is the best sololable equipment I can get @lvl 95. I suppose there are some armor sets. Iíll start with MC armor and then I should focus on what.

    3) Weapon stats Ė donít you know about some good article about weapon stats and what is the main focus for bruiser? Iím quite confused with potency, crit bonus/chance etc.

    4) Best merc for bruiser is?

    5) Will I be (at max level) solo some older raid zones (for plats/fun)?

    6) Any tips for great sololing bruisers so I can check theirs AAs at eqwire?

    7) I suppose there is no need to do voidshard quest now for the equipment.

    Thanks for your answers

    Hey Bruska bro!

    1) No need to run raid zones for mythical, get heroic version and immediately begin Epic Repercussion. Also, 4s/6s weapons now for 1h.

    2) As of CoE, the MC armor is actually useable if you need something to start with. If you can and have the means purchasing the 'refined' rare material will give you another 10% to blue stats (str/sta) for your gear.

    Best solo/group gear currently requires you to finish the signature CoE quest after which you get a bitchin cloak and access to dropped merchant currency which lets u purchase 'non-raid' gear (in some cases pretty damn close to raid gear).

    3) STR/STA. CB/potency are so well explained in game I don't see how you are confused, along with strikethrough and accuracy (just kidding!)

    CB increases every critical you do, this includes and is most important for melee attacks. To put it simply:
    [melee dmg*CB] = total melee dmg <---50-65% of all damage output for tanking typical single target encounter.
    CB is the most important stat for increasing your damage

    Potency only affects spells/CA, which again does not have the gains CB does for tanks.
    [(base spell/CA dmg * potency) + ability mod] * CB = total spell/CA dmg <--not important for tank but so ya'know.

    tl;dr u.eq2wire.com go there and look up a bruiser/monk of your liking in parse threads and take note of their AA's. Obano comes to mind.

    4) Best merc is the Archon Construct found in skyshrine. Requires running Underdepths in skyshrine, outdated content but if you can get a group go. If not, just hire any healer.

    5) Yes, with healer merc you can solo/farm plat from the popular veeshan's peak, PR in sebilis, SoH in nektulos until your eyes bleed.

    6) see tl;dr

    7) correct
