    Default Eveningstar Challenge Pack: ML 28 versions of the cloaks

    It would be nice to have a progression with the Eveningstar Challenge loot and add level 28 versions to the exisiting level 16, 20 and 24 versions. I think the following could work:

    Platinum Cloak of the Wolf

    Exceptional Seeker +6
    Dodge Bonus 10%
    Attack Bonus +5
    Diversion 20%

    Platinum Cloak of the Bear

    Sheltering +12
    Protection +8
    Exceptional Combat Mastery +6
    Incite +20%

    Platinum Cloak of the Dragon

    Spellcasting Implement +21
    Potency +80
    Spell Focus Mastery +2
    Stealth Strike
    Toons on Orien: Meinir // Flodur // Twiddler // Thorkar // Impetor // Juliacantor // Minor all Soko Irrlicht

    I don't see any meaningful upgrade here.

    Spell Focus Mastery +3.

    I'm not that much of a caster player, so I have a hard time in designing balanced bonuses. This proposal would probably work as well.

    Shouldn't be better than raid loot, Mastery stacking might be the last reason for any blue bar running FoT.
    Challenges are mindless trivial grind, raiding doesn't need another nail in the coffin.

    Shahang (fvs caster), Bellezza (assassin), Wipekin (monkcher), Farida (air savant), Nezhat (melee) Ghallanda/Devourer

    Unless I’m missing something, and Spell Focus Mastery is stacking with the individual <school> Focus I-V items, it should be Spell Focus Mastery V for the level 28 cloak. (And backfilled for the Tablecloth)
    Things worthy of Standing Stone going EXTREME PREJUDICE™ on.:
    • NEW - Fix the flipping non-proficiency penalties for wildshape!
    • Redo the Favor rewards so there is a reason to do max favor again.
    • Redoing the drop rates of tomes in generic and raid loot tables.
    • Task Lynnabel with updating the remaining legacy named loot to not suck.
    • Tiering the Runearms so that artificers aren’t screwed out of the advantages of Cannith Crafting in Epic levels on their signature item.
    • Finishing the enhancement tree passes (including racial PrE’s) before rolling out yet another DDOStore™ Enhancement Tree.

    It is.

    Good point about surpassing raid loot, so +3 mastery is out.

    The potency and implement are wasted effects, and the stealth strike is meh at best.

    Let's see, can't increase mastery, and the other effects may as well not even be on the item. What's a good brand new effect to introduce to a DC caster item that would be meaningful but not OP. hmmm...

    10% arcane lore?

    EDIT: Or maybe spellcraft +15?

    How about a slot? Specifically, an ORANGE slot!

    Why are Green slots on every other named accessory these days, and on lootgen accessories as well, but never an Orange slot in sight? The only Orange (or Violet) slots in the game seem to be on Weapons/Shields, where it's redundant. Give Orange equal time with Green on Accessories, please, and add some to named items where appropriate.

    I'd like to see it pre-slotted with Spellsight +15, which would be in keeping with its theme of providing spell power. (Implement + Potency.)

    The devs have said that mastery stacking with school focus right now is a bug and will be fixed soon.

    I'm too lazy to search it out though.

    Really? I follow the Dev Tracker fairly closely, and that's a topic near and dear to my heart. Odd I never noticed them say so. Anyway, if you can fine the reference, please do so.

    Though even if they said that, I still say they should change their minds and declare it WAI. We don't need more raid loot made useless by random generated.

    So, once it's fixed, upgrade the Tablecloth and the Dragon Cloaks to have Mastery II-V. Though, this is all a pipe dream guys. “He who is ‘good’ at his job” has neither the insight or ability to see why the new loot system completely effed all the named loot in this game.
