<DIV>Hi all,</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Hi all,</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I was surprised with the damage of Despotic Mind (level 28 9s recast nuke), it hits for appx 230-250 at Adept 1 (upgraded it immediately from App1, so no idea of the increase).</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Has anyone upgraded it to Adept 3?  I'd love to know the damage increase....</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I have one paladium upgrade, and am considering upping this one, but only if the damage increase is significant.</DIV> <DIV><BR>Thanks for any thoughts....</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Videk, 29 Coercer of Mistmore.</DIV>

<DIV>Damage of nukes increases by 25% per rank to base lvl of spell (App 1)</DIV> <DIV>So here we go if base damage</DIV> <DIV>App 1 - 100</DIV> <DIV>App 2 - 125</DIV> <DIV>App 3 - 150</DIV> <DIV>Adp 1 - 175</DIV> <DIV>Adp 3 - 225</DIV> <DIV>Mst 1 - 250</DIV> <DIV>So to speak going from Adp 1 to Adp 3 will net increase of damage ~1.28X time almost 30% so you'll notice that. Btw Adp1 Despotic Mind (after target full debuff) at lvl 37 hit on 433 <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></DIV>

<DIV>Great, thanks!</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Not sure if I'll do it yet, or just sell it for the "Horse whistle" fund. <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>How did you find Refresh?  I found an Opal, was going to upgrade it to Adept III. </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Any experience with that?</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Thanks!</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Videk</DIV>

<DIV>The damage on my Master 1 Despotic Mind at level 31 tops out at just over 500 with Melancholy/Gloom debuffs.  An Adept 3 should therefore fall in between Adept 1 as quoted above by Tanatus (though take into account that he's sizably higher level than me), and my Master 1 damage.  I personally think it's worthwhile to upgrade, because not only does it turn you into a very potent solo machine but it can also give you the extra push you might need in a desperate group situation, when all your stuns have been used, the healers mana is low, and your group is nearing defeat.  Being a pseudo-wizard isn't a bad thing, it's just another option to have.</DIV>
