View Full Forums : Roots and charisma

05-19-2006, 05:57 AM
Someone told me the other day that charisma has an effect on how well roots stsick. I had never heard or read this anywhere and was sceptical. I have never really bothered with charisma except when I was younger and trying to sell to vendors. I went ahead and bought myself some cahrisma, and it does seem to be helping. Am I just being hopeful, or is there really some correlation here? If not, is there anything one can do to improve the likelyhood of roots first landing, and then sticking. Any advice would be welcome.

Root depends on the magic resistance of the mob and the level desparity between the rooter and the rooted. Charisma factor, as far as I know, is an old EQ "wives tale".

Ok, is there any way to lower the mob's MR?

Only if its an animal... with Glamour of Tunare.

Or maybe if you got a tash stick.

I leveled up without depending on tash stick though. I'm sure that almost all druids don't depend on a magic debuff to root/dot or whatever you are going to attempt to level... so just go for it anyway.

Could quest and use Spore Spiral, but you will have to reroot way more often.

Thanks for the replies, folks. Much appreciated.

Spore spiral is kinda worth it now with the newest update.
