    Default Sorcerer DPS in endgame reaper – U43

    Hi all,

    Five months ago I tried out sorcerer dps for fun and I posted my findings here:
    https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthrea...m-god-to-trash
    The recent destiny and reaper changes made things different.

    On low skulls endgame, sorcerer was already god… now sorc is an entire pantheon...
    Something's really gone wrong with ‘balance’ 0_o

    DBF damage in slavers R1 (just 2 spells casted: mass hold+dbf, spiral + LGS ooze in offhand) U43 vs U41




    On medium skulls, sorc is now god. Awesome dps, no cc is needed.
    Something's really gone wrong with ‘balance’, again XD

    DBF damage in slavers R5 (just 2 spells casted: mass hold+dbf, spiral + LGS ooze in offhand) U43 vs U41




    On high skulls, sorc dps is now a viable option. Sorc dps really shines until r7-8, and is decent/good even on r10.
    On r10 I’d still prefer a DC sorcerer.

    DBF damage in slavers R10 (just 2 spells casted: mass hold+dbf, spiral + LGS ooze in offhand) U43 vs U41



    Please note that screenshots above are taken without Reveler's Regalia spell critical damage boost.

    Even if the statistical value is inaccurate, one can guess the dps improvement:
    R1 +40-45%
    R5 +80-90%
    R10 +175-200%

    What changed with the latest updates?
    Base spell damage: same from U41
    Spell power: slighty improved
    Spell critical chance: same, fire and ice can easiliy get 100% standing
    Spell critical damage: improved with U42.4, each DI core provides 5% Spell Crit Damage
    Reaper difficulty: huge buff for casters and ranged. 0.076 multiplier to 0.154 on r10. That’s huge.
    Helpless: reduction from 1.5 to 1.25 multiplier.

    Did you include sense weakness and no mercy in these screenshots? Helpless energy burst on ice sorc 100 crit mult 1300ish spellpower is a 1HKO consistently in r10, and with the new DC calc putting it at 130+ saves are relatively rare. Seeing similar numbers on otilukes vs DBF so that's interesting. New max hit for me is 547k on a fire mephit without revelers regalia; curious to see how much further it can be pushed. Sorc definitely seems to be king of the hill for the time being.

    Stop it. You might not even realize it but you've already managed to oppress other players that thought they were the top of the sorc chain by simply existing. Do you even know what it's like to post all sorts of reaper youtube videos just to have someone come along and oppress you? No, no you don't. You don't deserve any green eggs and ham for what you've done.

    Yes, I always twist sense weakness and I took no mercy.
