    Default Replace Litany of the Dead already

    I find it rather odd that level 28 characters are still wearing a level 13 item from a, what, 4 year old raid? 5 years old? I don't remember.

    Add to that the fact that I probably spent more time and effort acquiring my litany of the dead that I spent acquiring every single other piece of gear that my caster is wearing combined (that right there could be a thread of its own, but that topics been beat to death) and it's rather laughable.

    Seriously, put profane bonuses on something else. I'm really tired of wearing this thing but if it gets me an extra DC I'm not taking it off.

    Be careful what you wish for. If they ever take another look at this item effect I'd guess you're more likely to see them change it to some other non stacking bonus than to give us other caster options for profane bonuses.

    To be fair, at least melee have the Abashai set for str profane bonus even if it's not endgame worthy anymore. I'd love to see other profane bonuses for casters so that the Litany isn't needed for max stats. Perhaps epic Necro 4 at some point? I'm not quite sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing really.

    Well, it's that type of loot that keeps an old, level 17 raid still viable to run. Along with other unique pieces like Quiver, all the items with clickies can be useful bar the Quell clicky with no drawbacks other than having to swap for a second to activate, the robe is nice for PMs because it has the Inflict Wounds on damage effect (along with light resistance and +1 CL), etc.

    I like it that way. Maybe one or two other profane bonuses somewhere, but don't power creep it at all, don't make Litany useless, just give sort of an alternative if you want your trinket slot. Like how Nether Grasp and Epic Souleater give +2 Profane Strength, only replace with stats where people are actually excited about 1-2 more points.

    While you're at it, maybe an off-weapon alternative to get sustainable Alchemical bonuses?
