    Default Left Side For New Zone?

    I like the right side a lot, but i'm thinking about changing it for the new SG raid zone. Anyone going to Left Side prestige for the new zones? Devs seem to be pushing survivability.

    1 pt exuberant encore, 1 pt echoing howl to have the base abilities from both sides. no more to the left at this point. if trigger chance of hand of lady luck was modestly to moderately improved, i would reconsider more to the left, but not until.

    Echoing Howl without Echoing Power and either Sonic Howl or Double Echo (imo Sonic Howl for the added VC damage) is pretty pointless. It's like you're taking the aoe just to say you have two blue aoes even though it pretty much does nothing.

    Exuberant Encore is way too situational even with Unstopping Encore and Energetic Encore. It won't prevent oneshots, which is the real danger in the new zone, and without Unstopping Encore, the duration is too short and the recast too long for it to be of any meaningful use. Lady Luck is atleast nice in that it doesn't have a limit on how often it can proc, so you can get lucky and have it proc 2-3 times in a row, or you can just get unlucky and not have it proc at all.

    Really the only really useful defensive option in the left side is Screechwall. The VoN resets and the ability to Sonic Barrier yourself while VoN'd can come in handy if timed well. That also lets you take double conversion, 3 points in Echoing Howl, and 2 points in Echoing Power so you atleast still get 15 groupwide crit bonus.

    I honestly don't think it's necessary though.

    this is basically what i'm after - exactly how EE works. the target has to survive the damage before the heal is re-applied? for instance, while fighting oligar hm, i had my tank stay in on Cackle while i cast EE on him. he survived once (tho ACT didn't show EE firing), and died two other times (again, EE didn't seem to fire according to ACT).

    actually the best thing i've found to the left side - between the CB conversion - is the ward on Oration of Sacrifice. if group DS fired a little more it'd be nice...

    Yeah, the target has to take non-lethal damage for the heal to do anything, most of which should already be getting healed with reactives if you have a cleric, and the target needs to drop below 50% hp but not die in order to proc the damage reduction. Its uses are pretty much limited to predictable short durations where you know the tank is going to take large spike damage, but they'll still be on their own for any oneshots. It was also useful for Drinal's original curse that would tick every few seconds since it was enough damage to keep procing the damage reduction, but I can't think of another situation like that in current content.
