5% per level over cap, instead of 10%. Nice.

It is very, very nice. Say you have a level 70 ice focus that raises ice nuke damage by 30%. 10% degradation would mean it is a 15% focus at level 75, 5% means it is a 22% or 23% (not sure if they round up or down). At level 80 with 10% that focus would be 0, 5% degradation would give you a 15% focus.

At 10% degradation any focus will be half it's strength 5 levels above cap and 0 at 10 levels, at 5% 5 levels above cap gives you 75% of your original focus and at 10 levels your focus would be half it's strength.

IMO they need to make it so degridation goes down to half the potency of the focus then stops ... cos seriously ... how many of us are still in demi raiding guilds, giving us 25% heal, cold, fire, magic focus under this new method at lv80 ... yeah its better than having no focus at all, but it again means that those casters still using this gear over the new stuff are getting left behind whereas the melee with Cleave/Fero 5/6 items are left at a higher DPS rating with their new discs ... yay for casters gettin screwed again.

The single group armor exceed what is available in demi, and the focii while being less power, will work full force.

At 5%/level degradation, Demiplane focus effects (60% @L72) will be 36% at level 80. That's pretty reasonable.
