    Default Planar / Mystical Orb collection!

    Why do two of the best earrings in the game come from a level 60 collection quest?

    It blows my mind that after all this time there are still very few items that can compete with Planar Orb of the Wanderer and Mystical Orb of the Invoker. It's painfully obvious whoever designed these items had no idea how powerful procs are.

    Why hasn't this been changed? And why isn't there and upgraded Orb-like reward on raid mob loot tables?

    :25:

    An example of Dirge (earring) progression:

    Ears
    \aITEM -1343573124 -666022740:Planar Orb of the Wanderer\/a - (Collection Quest Reward: Planar Orbs)
    \aITEM 1487108266 -1011869659:Hoop of Planar Power\/a - (Avatars)
    \aITEM -629567489 1633143627:Mystical Orb of the Invoker\/a - (Collection Quest Reward: Mystical Orbs)
    \aITEM -1569654088 1048959490:Earring of Unkempt Power\/a - (Avatars)
    \aITEM -1622819847 1458627619:Earring of the League Guardians\/a - (League Quest Reward: Experimentation Most Foul)

    Whats wrong with this picture? :46:

    Unfortunately power and crisis is what changes the world, not art and laughter.

    I have cancer of the eyeball. Fortunately RoK's release notes will introduce a fix for that too.

    I think for the same reason Acrylia rings are the best rings for melee classes /shrug

    Yeah, but at least Acrylia is mastercrafted.. the Orbs are TREASURED.

    Does it really matter when they are both items eight levels below what you should be using?

    They are both the same difficulty to get, one you have to farm mobs, and one you have to farm nodes~

    Not really, you're right, they're both screwed up.

    I just consider the Orbs to be more-so because having a 'treasured' item as the #1 and #3 earring over two contested Avatar (fabled) drops makes me laugh.

    No, one you have to farm shinies, the other you have to farm nodes. That makes them the same difficulty
