    0-4 nothing usually or whatever garbage trinket I loot that has any kind of usefulness

    5-14 VOM

    15-27 Pale Green Ioun stone

    28 ranger uses Shamanic Fetish and my other melees will use Idol of Fortune, when I eventually do FOT and loot them but not totally set on it yet.
    Gary Gygax quotes

    The essence of a role-playing game is that it is a group, cooperative experience.

    There is no winning or losing, but rather the value is in the experience of imagining yourself as a character in whatever genre you are involved in, whether its a fantasy game, the Wild West, secret agents or whatever else. You get to sort of vicariously experience those things.

    Role-playing isn't storytelling. If the dungeon master is directing it, its not a game.

    When AI approximates Machine Intelligence, than many online and computer run RPGs will move toward actual RPG activity. Nonetheless, that will not replace the experience of "being there" anymore than seeing a theatrical motion picture can replace the stage play.

    The secret we should never let the game masters know is that they don't need any rules.

    Abbot has a lot of nice items and it is also very interesting and fun raid but the flagging mechanic kinda sucks IMO.

    Quiver, litany, unwearing, petitioner staff, breeze etc etc.
    Almost every item in abbot is nice to have and useful.
    And it feels great to get em, since first few abbots for everyone feel like a struggle and a nice challenge.
    Abbot is one of rare raids in ddo that are great and have actual mechanics that dont include split and kill
    /and litany is by far one of best trinkets in game for most builds, esp with thforged being so powerful most of us drop the planar set making litany the best trinket even at lv 28

    No doubt, planar conflux trinket is the best trinket at the moment.

    As of last weekend, having taken so many years to pull another one, and having nothing better to slot - I am displaying a plain ol' Blood Stone atm.

    melee:
    1-8 Crafted Melee Alacrity 10% + Feat: Mobility
    9-13 Duskheart, and/or Crafted Good Luck +2
    11-? add Crafted True Seeing trinket to rotation when needed
    14-22 add Sustaining Symbiont and Shamanic Fetish (ML14) to rotation
    23 - ? Planar Focus +3 Strength and/or Sibery's Compass ML24 (PRR +12) + Shamanic Fetish (ML25) when needed

    Also experiment with some others but those are what I have been using mostly.
    Haven't spent enough time above level 26 to worry about a trinket for those levels yet.

    Depends on the build. Most of my characters have VoM, but for some it's been worth it to switch it out for Dusk Heart or Blood Stone or CC Spyglass or Mummified Bat. (Night Hag's Heartstone is also a fun one, especially when Nightmare Guard procs.) I've got Iouns planned for a few characters that were lucky enough to have them randomly drop outside of Dreaming Dark (Incandescent Blue, and Pink & Green), and for others I'd like to get Planar Focuses.

    Depending on the character, it's either a swap slot or one of the Cove trinkets.

    ¨Not the only reason - Quiver is also absolutely fantastic on TR character (no minimum level 30% striding in a slot you would not use anyway? Hell yes!), so is Ardency (best heroic bow in the game and best until Pinion), Then the Shroud, both staves... for Pale Masters, The ring is astonishing. Abbot gear is simply worth it.

    And ofc, the Litany is THE LITANY - best in slot for many.

    If ranged, I find the Shimmering Arrowhead for crippling on crit is nice.
    I Cannith-craft (150 levels in all schools) for free on Thelanis if you provide all needed materials.

    Undead extra turning trinket and also an undead guard trinket, but not both at the same time. In the Mabar event I would wear the guard trinket or a quest with 100 percent undead, otherwise teh turning one.

    I have been trying to get the Egem of many facets to go with Eclaw for the +4 artifact bonus while still wearing the Sun Soul set on my monkey; might even stick some more gear in there from Red Fens to make epic sets for certain effects from level 20 up.

    no luck yet--Chronoscope is a slow slog.
    got the Eclaw glove though; Red Fens epics drop generously, it seems.
    Yeah i switch around but right now it is the Symbiot.

    Epic litany has some real potential, imagine the player reaction to - Altar: "Epic Litany - turn in 5 heroic versions of the trinket"

    Each upgrade tier also now needs 3 completed epic abbot sigil frames.

    if you are a bard and relying on the exceptional CON and GFL of the symbiot, the tier 3 Blasting Chime can host those two augments as well as offering anthem, sonic power, and a guard

    If you go L20, you get a colorless and green slot - colorless I'd stick a Perform diamond in there for your DCs, and green could be PRR, Good Luck +2, Resistance, SP, etc. etc.
    You might have a point but the slots are really the only things you gain by going epic tier 3. That and +1% lore and 10 inherent sound resistance. Now that I've settled on crafting it with mobile of persuasion and have the ability when I tr to just mastercraft it so it goes min level 13, I think there's too much upside to sticking to tier level 15
