    The first round of new loot for U29 is upon us:

    +1.

    You know what doesn't have a maximum caster level anchor? Shiradi DPS. That's why you can put it as an engine into just about every caster build split.

    You know what also doesn't have a...

    This seems like a sizeable nerf. For many if not most of these spells (which are largely capped at level 10), it means that they benefit from 5 fewer caster levels, since most casters will have up to...

    Right now, they are useless abilities in epic levels because their DPS is pitiful.

    For them to be worth taking on a DC caster pale master, they would need to be good enough to justify trading a...

    It looks like U29 is offering a substantial buff to casters. There are kickass legendary feats, epic destiny spell feats, and a variety of new "regular" epic feats which let you remove the caster...

    Well ****. Non-shiradi DPS casting might actually become a thing without ML restrictions on elemental spells. Greater Ruin is also scary powerful.

    Certainly though, there's going to be substantial...

    This is an insane nerf to a build we're talking about because it's fallen behind. You're increasing the fail rate on a 60 fort mob by 3-4x for any currently viable PM build.


    Again, for a PM to...

    I jumped into EE ToEE for the first time since the pass on my maxed DC caster.

    It's night and day from what it used to be in a bad way. DC builds used to be great for ToEE because there were...

    MM spamming Shiradi Sorcs are plenty viable at endgame. You can absolutely roll a first life toon and blast through EEs with it.

    The problem with Sorcs is that Warlocks do the exact same thing...

    You get +1 over the gloves but give up +1 versus the TF 2-handers. The orb isn't offering anything else that's compelling beyond the +2 Quality bonus.

    It's no net DC change, and if it's better,...

    Again, I think people would take this much better if there was something else difficult and worthwhile to chase at endgame.

    The way I think about Mind Fog is that when combined with enchantment CC, it gives you 2 chances to beat the save instead of 1. It's not quite that good, but if your enchantment DC isn't high enough...

    The most important debuff is Enervation SLA because it's cheap and can get spammed before every Finger of Death. The second most important debuff is Energy Drain. Both also have the benefit of giving...

    I think the "necro vs enchant vs evoc" thought process has a whole lot more to do with the potency of the effects and number of useful spells in those schools than anything else.

    I'm not sure what you think DC casters have been doing for the past few years, but they've always been disproportionately good at dealing with trash at the cost of boss DPS. They haven't been good...

    This complaint was aired in Lamannia and it doesn't seem to have changed anything about the actual raid. The result is a very one-dimensional raid.

    A raid that's hard enough to have some longevity and for which an EE completion didn't get posted to achievements in the first two hours of going live? The horror!

    Honestly, with the level cap only going up by two more, I would be surprised if this is high on the agenda to rework or even worth the effort. DC casting as a system isn't broken beyond repair or...

    That will save on the dretches either isn't what is currently on Lamannia, or something is seriously borked with enchantment spells. Mass Hold with a low 70s DC works only sometimes on them. It...
