    Default Today's GU

    Anyone gonna mess around with the new Resonance? Been doing fine with the split prestige to take advantage of both the pot and cb increases, but the new update would eliminate the cb bonus if used. For me would be about 21 points of cb self buffed lost if I spec for the resonance. Thoughts?

    I think the lack of responses pretty much sums up the answer.

    I went down the right side and my dps seemed somewhat low on average I think. I never bench marked it and am not sure as I was in a different group in raid. I will likely be in the same group for the next little bit so I can check it out over the next couple of days or so and then respec to dual and see if there is any difference. I really do not have a lot of experience but I am tempted to think that a macro with COB and Echoing Howl thrown just prior to RO/VC might help out a bit if Resonation procs. If I get time I will see what happens on a training dummy.

    I changed my spec to take 2 from endline and 1 from lamentations to put them in the new middle resonation increase thing. I've always been right side specced.

    does Eulogy of the Fallen work out to be a 3cb group buff? (doesn't Weapon Damage Bonus add to the Base Melee Crit?) is Lamentations better than that?

    If Eulogy didn't cancel on death I'd consider it. Also I switched to 3 lam 2 ae increase because for some reason the ae increase is mostly the first point apparently :\

    If I were getting Eulogy I would go 2 lam 1 ae increase 2 eulogy.

    Could some one please demystify how the mechanics of Echoing Howl works? It would seem that the description obfuscators put in over time on this. So my take is that I throw it on the target(s). For every target hit I get an "increment". If I am in a thick mob (+24), I would accrue 24 "increments". Clearly a weapon much better used in multi-mob encounters. In the Effects description I am assuming that the disease damage done 2312-3820 is if you had only one increment (single target) and 5461-10143 would be done if you had the max of 24 increments (+24 targets in AoE). If this is the case then it is relatively useless for single target but at it's max would do 243432 in the AoE which is not too bad.

    As for applying resignation does it proc on a hit by any raid member hitting a mob in the AoE of just me. I am thinking of the situation of where the group is targeting through the Main Assist with larger single target damage being done. This situation would limit the damage to burning one target at at time. However if any team member can initiate the combat hit or spell then this would be a dandy time for a wiz to drop fire storm or others to drop as many of their AoEs to engage as many of the mobs as possible. Once again at it's max this could trigger an additional 450824 damage in the AoE.

    All things being equal in raid the perfect conditions can practically never be met and there really is no description as to what the actual range of the AoE is. I have a sneaking suspicion that you would have to be hip deep in mobs to use Echoing Howl effectively. The up side is I have a 16.5 sec recast on this so it is up fairly often.

    Thanks,

    Beta update

    Echoing Power now lasts for two minutes.
    Gravitas no longer has an immunity timer.
    Enhance: Elegy at Death's Door now also improves the range of Elegy at Death's Door by 1 meter per rank.
    Clara's Chaotic Cacophony now has a 0.5 second cast time.
    Daro's Sorrowful Dirge now has a 0.5 second cast time.
    Overall combat art damage in PVP combat has been increased.

    I like what I see so far but would like to see an upgrade to Battle Cry.
