Just looking for a little advice. I have 428 AA's and just finished Shared Cammo. Magelo should be mostly up to date, just before the patch. Which would be more worth it?

1. Finishing the DD line
2. Finishing the DoT line
3. Finishing Silent Casting

Those 3 I see as being the most beneficial. I group almost 100% because I despise soloing, when and where I can get one.

Oh man, tack on some defensive aa's bro! =D Lightening reflexes and whatnot are awesome. I also think that convergance of spirits is an AMAZING aa. The 2k insta heal+1k/tick really makes a difference.

Hmm, I was gonna do defensives after the offenses. I rarely do anything dumb enough to get hit. But, I have the archtype def's maxed, just haven't went beyond.

As for convergance, I might look into that. I just hate it's on the same timer as SotG.

If you play healer a good bit, I would for sure do Convergence of the Spirits. While it does suck that it is on the same timer as SOTG, I find CoS to be MUCH more useful and a lifesaver.

As far as SC goes, I haven't trained this one yet, but I have heard that its not really worth it if you have better stuff to do first. Its pretty rare that I draw aggro anyway in a group (unless I am chain nuking in a low dps group) and almost never in a raid, so I just don't see the benefit.

Silent casting has a cast time, which sucks. And it's a pretty long cast time.. so when you see 5 mobs incoming and need to throw a quick heal, you won't have time to do silent casting.

I would take Swift Journey first.
Then Convergence of Spirits.
Then finish DD stuff, then DoT stuff. If it gets boring, do Secondary Forte somewhere between.
After that probably max avoidance.

suggest only avoidance AA's for now... I'm assuming netura included those in when he said "defensive AAs". The mitigation AAs aren't that hot and should be left for later. But the avoidance and evasion AAs are good to have.

I really, really wish I could play this weekend. Hell, I'd even stoop so low to do what I hate and go solo some XP while LFG. That double XP is calling to me. I'd be soaking up AA's like there's no tomorrow. I might have even been able to catch up a little.

But, unfortunately I'm working an extended 32 hour shift. 4pm Friday to Midnight Saturday. Of all the lousy weekends to pull duty. =(

Thanks for all of your input!

Silent Casting is good on pulls where you are warned in advance.

Monk_01 tells the raid, 'Oops, I think I got a few adds.'
Pop SC and you are going 1 minute with barely any agro, and you can spam heal.

Another scenario is initial healing on a mob that hits you to a pulp before you can blink if you get agro. Just before a boss pull, pop SC and you can spam heal the tank from the get go without worrying (much) about agro.

Well, with what I could muster out of the double XP I got about 40 more AA's and put them all into the DD line. I now have 465 AA's with Destructive Fury 2. Since all I did for the XP was kite, the extra crits made sense.

If you raid, I would recommend finishing off RC. I would also recommend CoS, Persistant Casting, and Quickened Curing after RC.

Does persistent casting work? If so, how good is it? I only got third level of it couple days ago, just before resist AAs.

I find PC very useful, esp in DoD missions where the Undead Stun you (if you don't resist).

I have channeled KR through it even while being stunned 8 of the 10 seconds.

I think persistant casting is an utter waste of an AA. but thats just my opinion.

02-03-2006, 11:53 AM
Personally I think Silent Casting is broken. I can't tell you how many times I have used it when we had multiple mobs and I heal the MA and somehow get all the adds on me. This is with the MA AE taunting too.

02-03-2006, 02:35 PM
Keep in mind AE taunt is a one time deal, if he AE taunts and you pull agro off him after that there's not much a warrior can do.

Looking at your aa...go with lightning reflexes next. Nothing is quite as nice as seeing the mob swing at you 5 times and miss 4 before the tank gets agro back under control. It really does give us a lot more survivability, its made a big difference to me since I maxed out avoidance aa.
