View Full Version : While you're fixing the Sora Kell set, how about an upgrade?

I know it's broken at the moment, but the official word is that the Sora Kell spellpower set bonus will work again with U15. What I'd like to propose is that if you have a fully-upgraded set with all three pieces in their BtC state, the spellpower bonus should increase from 40 to... well, something a bit more respectable. Nothing over-the-top, say 60, or even 72.

Given the horrible drop-rates of the Marks these days and the fact that the set is taking up 3 slots, it would be nice if it stayed useful for longer!

/singed it is a set most get at level 15, and to only be useful for level 15-16 is meh, i have changed out many parts of the set myself at level 17. They dont last long and are banked as soon as i get everything i need to upgrade them >.>

An Upgrade to Spell Power on a Fully Upgraded Sora Katra Set would be awesome.

It is NOT just a set a character wears for 1 or 2 levels.

On some of my 1st life alts and TRd alts that are perpetually parked at levels 12, 13, 14, 18 (for running with friends and guildmates) it is VERY useful for a LONGGGGG TIME!

Any of my characters that have multiple lives planned its VERY usefull.

I have unbound versions that get passed around at level 11. And every toon I play regularly has a bound set as well.

An upgrade would be nice.

Its a nice set, fully upgraded it really should boost the spells a bit more, 60 is a fair pick imo.

Good suggestion.

Upgraded Set bonus (on top of what it currently gives) could be improved with :


+ 20 Spellpower -- or -- +15 Implement stacking bonus
+ 4 Seeker // so warriors get some boost as well

Either boost it or make it stackable with other potency/universal effects.

Why? Helmet, ring, gloves.... prime spots, eps when you consider all the gear sets out there.

Yes, that's what I was mainly thinking of. It's not like it would become some overpowered monster of a must-have set, it would just bring the thing into line with other sets. I like the idea of a stackable bonus, but in reality this set is of more use to those classes which suffer badly from MAD and already really struggle to fit spellpower bonuses into the gear mix. As such, I'd rather see an increase to the non-stacking bonus than a smaller bonus which stacks: most of the prime users of this set can't fit any other spellpower bonuses in for it to stack with, except perhaps situationally.

I like Janave's idea of a little something extra for combat, too. +4 Exceptional Seeker would be nice, or double the untyped to-hit and damage bonuses. Given the time and trouble that are now needed to get a fully-upgraded set since the drop rates for marks plummeted, plus the fact that it becomes BtC when upgraded, it should stay relevant for much longer. As it stands, particularly on a 1st-life toon, you'll generally start having access to better gear sets just after (or even before) you've managed to upgrade all the pieces!

I love the set but +40SP just feels tad low. For the fully upgraded set would really love to see +60. Then I would feel it would be worth using for more then 1-2 levels.

I mean its great that you are fixing it but would also love for it to be useful as well.

So, do we have a consensus? Who do we call? :)

But... I ain't afraid of no ghosts!







EDIT: ...because I have Ethereal Bracers, the Hand of the Tombs, the Silver Slinger and 1,000 Gloomy Death Ward potions. Otherwise I'd be scared out of my wits.

All The set really needs is for the upgraded version to remain ml 11. It really is a set for people who like to tr their character. With +6 items gaining a lower min level in random loot this would be a nice boon. The set already has quite a few drawback such as locking you out of minos legens, spectral gloves, delaying toughness until level 15, and forcing you to wear a +6 charisma item.

I think th einherent problem here isn't the sora kel set, its that changing Potency into Spellpower was not very well thought out. I agree with the general idea behind potency - a spellpower type that affects ALL spells shoudl be less powerful than a spellpower type that only affects one type of spell... HOWEVER, potency is SO WEAK in the current game that no one in their right mind would use it.

I mean, who in their right mind would rely on 40 spellpower when you could get nearly double that for a single spell type from some random lootgen caster stick. that's effectively saying "I don't want to actually be GOOD at what I'm doing, i'd rather just be lazy and not have to swap weapons/gear". And the discrepency only grows the higher in level we get, until maximum potency end up 40-50 SP behind maximal single-type spellpower.

Solution: Make potency = single spell type spellpower -10, or something similar. That way, single spelltype power is still better by enough to be worth using, but potency isn't utterly useless.

I think the sausage's suggestion is good, however I still wouldn't wear the helm over Minos.

Does anyone really bother to upgrade sora set?
I mean the non upgraded are decent twink for some toons but the ml boost and btc make upgrades much less valuable IMO.

Would I mind seeing a boost to the spow on the set, sure 40 is pretty weak even for the unpugraded but it would have to be a huge boost for me to consider upgrading even before I factor in the grind.
The ml jump and btc just kill it.

The question is very valid imo, in its current form, with the more restrictive binding status really not worth the extra farming imo. Few builds need all 3 stats maxed from the set anyway.
