    Default Warden RoK Set





    Right up there with some of the worst designed set pieces for a class.

    I'm guessing whoever created this set, has very little knowledge of the Warden class in general. Wardens being as gimped as they are for raids, often specc down the melee line just so they actually have something to contribute. In fact thats one of the factors that separated Wardens from Furies, Wardens beings pushed torwards melee, and Furies more nuke oriented. Yet there is 0 STR on these set pieces, how the hell they came to the conclusion that AGI would be more beneficial is beyond me. Not to mention they decided to throw spell damage at a class that can spec for 75% melee crit and 40% double attack. And then theres the set bonuses....christ.

    Seriously now, do these people actually take the time to understand how a class functions before they start designing gear? Or do they just toss in whatever, based on pure assumption? They would have been better off giving Wardens a cock-flavored popsicle upon turning in the mold. At least that would have proved more useful.

    I agree 100%.. clueless people making worthless crap. I held out on my Warden, waiting on this expansion hoping they would do us right but alas... nothing changes. I finished the betrayal quest two nights ago at lvl 71 and finished gearing up yesterday..

    I couldn't believe the amount of gear that had Wis/Int on it. Perfect for furies. The fact that they won't make Str/Wis gear just sucks. I enjoyed melee spec but gear swaping just gets old after a while. I hate being "one of the masses" now but the lack of raid utility was just killing me and getting moved from group to group all night sucks. Maybe they'll get it right one day and I can switch back..

    I don't give a fuck really about dmg tbh.. i mean yeah i need to carry one "healer" set with tons of wis and power regen and one " dps" set which is actually brawler set with 0 wis.. but still i'm going to raid as warden and no one expect me to do dps.. they all expect me keep the groups alive because others furies turn there's 50% more dmg and they can't heal effectively with this buff.. and that's i'm doing the best and that's what my class meant to be.

    This is a problem with every single piece of set out of VP. There are currently better treausred options than fabled set pieces.

    It seems they know this is the problem and just dont care. On beta when asked about it I told them thats there was a huge problem with teh progressive usefulness of treasure to fabled and the response from the dev to my response was "but how does it look?"

    man, mystic set is even more garbageristic, it has 0 str or melee effects as well, but the set bonuses suck even harder

    This is the way i presented the problem to them, which is what they have ulitmately failed to realize.

    All of te abilities and effects gained from wearing a 7 set bonus, even if they are equal to other fabled gear's stats effects, are inferior to simple peice sets. WHY? because these set peices take away the ability to min/max.

    Min/Maxing is a part of every class and lets take a fury for example b/c i can do that. If I had a bunch of hodge podge fabled gear that gave me 60% spell crits or i could wear set gear that gave me 40% spell and 40% healing, i would wear the hodgepodge gear most of the time b/c im in dps mode more often.

    with that being said there are gear combos that can do the same for healing giving yourself massive amounts of crits, which ultimately leaves you with no use for set gear.


    Now look at the set piece abilities. Any set piece which individually increases damage or healing amount for an individual spell is crap. Increasing my group heal by 150 points is the exact same as +450 healing, but the kick is that it only works on 1 spell. when rolled down to overall healing efficiency a major set milestone is worse than a treasure bracelet.

    they simply just either didnt understand how powerful treasure and legendary gear was or didnt understand how crap set is by completely discounting that value of versatility. Any way you look at it, in order to fix the problem your looking at a huge increase in fabled gear usefulness or a massive nerf to treasured/legendary.

    I think the problem is that they view the set bonus's as just that, a bonus for wearing multiple pieces of the set, not the reason to wear the set. This would be good reasoning if the individual set pieces where worth wearing based on their own merit, however for the most part they just aren't.

    im going to be wearing MAYBE 3 pieces of my VP set as a monk, and thats only if the end numbers crunched from other pieces dont net more dps boost elsewhere. i would rather wear my legendary set for the +2 crit and DA bonuses and the likes over some of the shit htey put on the VP set (more haste? nowaikthxbai)
